Spirituality according to John with Rodney Reeves

Rodney Reeves

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.”

2 & 3 John

I had the great fortune yesterday (6/12/2016) of teaching  Mark Lanier’s Sunday School class at Champions Forest Baptist Church.  Mark is one of the best communicators and Bible teachers you will ever hear so I am grateful and humbled for the opportunity.  He and his wife Becky are currently in Oxford awaiting the birth of their first grand baby.

Brent Johnson and his staff at Champions Forest were excellent to work with. They have already made the video available.

I taught on 2 & 3 John because Mark has been working his way through the New Testament for nearly 49 weeks now.  I’m grateful to have the opportunity to talk about these little, neglected books.
