Rodney Reeves joins David Capes to talk about Spirituality according to John on the Stone Chapel. He is senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Jonesboro, Arkansas. He’s been a pastor but also an academic. He has taught New Testament at Northern Seminary, Southwest Baptist University, and Williams Baptist University.
Dr. Reeves and Dr. Capes discuss the differing approaches taken by both John and Paul when it comes to spirituality.
Dr. Reeves defines spirituality in a Biblical sense, and then discusses the effects it has on varying topics in the Gospels, letters and Revelation. He then takes their differences in literary, philosophical, and theological choices. He gestures towards the devotional applications, ultimately giving rise to a modern calling for Christians to “come and see.”
