The Gospels Vs. The Quest for the Historical Jesus

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

John Piper has some great comments about the Gospels and the ‘Quest’ of modern Biblical scholarship for the ‘real’ Jesus. See the section in the intro of his newest book (“What Jesus Demands from the World“) called: “A Word to Biblical Scholars”. He points out that much of what passes for “the assured results of […]

MARK 14:26-31 The Prophecy of Peter’s Denial

Sunday, November 26th, 2006

After finishing their meal with a hymn, Jesus and his disciples left to spend the rest of the night on the Mount of Olives. Rather than going back to Bethany for the night (it was undoubtedly late by that time), they opted to camp in Jerusalem among the trees on the mount.  Probably along the way, […]

“What Jesus Demands from the World” -Intro

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

By Bart D. Ehrman (New York: Oxford Univ. Press, 2006, pgs. 198) Chapter Three:  Judas in Later Gospel Traditions In surveying all the early traditions about Judas, it is the contention of Dr. Ehrman that oral traditions about Judas circulated for a number of years and resulted in some very different and conflicting presentations about […]

“Borat”-The Top Film in America?

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

“Borat” has been the top grossing film in the USA for the past two weeks.  What does this say about America?  Is this really the best that our culture can produce?  I was tricked into seeing this film.  It is presented as a comedy in the trailers, but believe me when I say that words cannot explain how over-the-top offensive and […]
