Let Us Change the Lord’s Prayer

Dr. Nick Perrin, professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, comments on Pope Francis’ recent remarks about the last line of the Lord’s prayer (Matt 6.13). Should we say, “lead us not into temptation,” or “do not let us fall into temptation”?  Pope Francis thinks the latter, but Dr. Perrin has a very different take. Nick Perrin

Daughters and Sons

Dr. Amy Peeler, associate professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, endorses the impulse toward gender inclusive language in translation. But in some cases she thinks exclusive language may better capture the argument of the text. In Hebrews 2:10 she suggests it is better to read “children” (NRSV) or “sons and daughters” (NIV)  as “sons” because of its Christological implications, and subsequent empowerment of female readers.

A Show of Faith

Recently the Houston Chronicle, Houston’s only newspaper, did an article on a radio show I have helped to cohost for 15 years.  It’s called “A Show of Faith” and its airs Sunday 7.00 to 9.00 pm (Central Time) on AM 1070 The Answer.  You can find it on IHeartRadio and other apps.  Now that I live in Wheaton, IL, I am not able to be on weekly, but I do call in regularly for the two hours, and I visit the studio whenever I am in the city.  The priest and the rabbi are two of my best friends.  Our mission is to talk about events in the news from the standpoint of a priest, minister and rabbi.  Another aspiration we have is to show that you can be friends across faiths.

Living under the Orders (Part One)

In this episode of Exegetically Speaking, Gene Green, professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, discusses how he became a student of Greek through his local, Pentecostal church.  Then he guides us in thinking biblically about submission: to governing authorities (1 Pet 2.13); to masters (1 Pet 2.18); within the family (1 Pet 3.1); to elders (1 Pet 5.5).Gene Green
