Re: In-Depth Bible Study

[I agree with all of this until you get to "I am more inclined to trust the Byzantine text". But I'm also not confident that my opinion is correct, I am mostly confident that humility is called for. It's not something I feel strongly about either way. Just a preference...especially since ...

Re: In-Depth Bible Study

I'd be interested in your feelings on HCSB, I find it does a pretty good job of being readable while still being accurate. I've never read it. Actually, I get a little discouraged anytime a new English translation comes out when I know how great a need there is for languages all over the world that...

Re: In-Depth Bible Study

I don't much care which reading you give, but I would appreciate a footnote saying that some manuscripts give the other reading. I agree. This is one of the reasons I have been considering reading the New King James more because it is the only translation that gives clarity and transparency on text...

Re: In-Depth Bible Study

I have also started reading a book called Deep Exegesis by Peter Leithart. It looks quite interesting, and I really like the Christocentric approach to exegesis. Tell me about it, I don't know this book. The basic premise is that we shouldn't be trying to strip away the husk of Scripture to get to ...

Re: In-Depth Bible Study

All of the above. I am not limited to those writing from an Anabaptist perspective. I am just curious to see how others dig down deep into the Scripture and what methods they use. So how do you currently approach this? You obviously have done a fair bit of in-depth Bible study yourself ... I wanted...

Re: In-Depth Bible Study

Adam, do you want a Bible study that discusses practical and personal life applications of the Scripture? Or a study that gets into the linguistics and semantics of translations? Are you interested in one that uses the critical-historical method? All of the above. I am not limited to those writing ...

In-Depth Bible Study

Does anyone have any recommended resources or methods for in-depth Bible Study...I mean the kind of Bible study where you can spend weeks on one short book or even a few chapters.

Re: The Role of Satire, Parody, and Sarcasm in Faith

I like to joke and have on MN. Just to clarify, I am not talking about all joking. I think there are many things that are perfectly acceptable to laugh about. But I am focusing specifically on joking and laughter that makes light of sin and its terrible effects or that seems to mock others who migh...

The Role of Satire, Parody, and Sarcasm in Faith

A Christian author that I have read recently made the following post on his public Facebook page: I learned from a Facebook Holiness preacher that, because I’ve been divorced and remarried, I'm living in adultery with my current wife, but only as long as my former spouse is still alive. And if my fo...
