Hail, O Favored One?

Dr. Julie Newberry, Wheaton College

Dr. Julie Newberry, Assistant Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, investigates the language of Joy and rejoicing in the Gospel of Luke.  She recently finished her PhD at Duke University and defended her dissertation. Congratulations, Julie. She stops by Exegetically Speaking to suggest the angel’s greeting (Luke 1:28) to Mary might not be just a greeting after all.  She considers the contrast between Zechariah’s encounter and Mary’s.

Resurrection Logic: Dying and Rising Gods

In part two Bruce Chilton, Bernard Iddings Professor of Religion at Bard College (New York), continues his conversation with David Capes about elements of his book, Resurrection Logic: How Jesus’ First Followers Believed God Raised Him from the Dead (Baylor University Press, 2019).  How does the resurrection of Jesus compare with ancient myths about the dying and rising gods?  What does Paul say about what it means to be human?  How does the Jesus’ resurrection call forth a new humanity and a new creation?

Resurrection Logic

Dr. Bruce Chilton

Last year I had the great honor to talk with Dr. Bruce Chilton at the Lanier Theological Library about his new book Resurrection Logic: How Jesus’ First Followers Believed God Raised Him from the Dead. The conversation was so rich that we divided the podcast into parts 1 and 2.

Engaging Theology

Randy Hatchett (left); Ben Blackwell (right)

Ben Blackwell, Associate Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at HBU, and Randy Hatchett, Professor of Theology and Philosophy, also of HBU, have written a new book: Engaging Theology: A Biblical, Historical, and Practical Introduction  (Zondervan, 2019).  The book demonstrates the relevance of “engaging” theology rather than just thinking about God, the world and humanity in an ivory tower setting.  The authors, while seasoned, do a great job of making theology understandable to students, pastors, and lay people. They focus on the story of scripture, doctrinal exposition, theological relevance (and reflection), and finally spiritual relevance.  Recently, a film crew from Zondervan Academic filmed Ben and Randy talking about their new book in the scholar’s cottage.  Look for those videos in spring or fall 2021.
