Reading Scripture Allegorically

Father John Behr

Patristic expert, Father John Behr, likes to be provocative. Here is a recent conversation (15 minutes) I had with him which began with a provocative statement: “Unless we are reading Scripture allegorically, we are not reading it as Scripture.” You may not agree with his answer but he will certainly get you thinking. This is part two of a podcast we did together. When we met, Father Behr was in transition. moving from St. Vladimir’s Seminary in New York–a post he held for 25 years–to becoming Professor of Patristics at the University of Aberdeen. He ends the podcast making some recommendations about how a person might go about reading the Church Fathers.

Poetry and Metaphor in Psalm 1

Travis Wright

Not long ago I sat down with Travis Wright, a PhD Student at Cambridge University, to discuss some of the beauty and poetry found in Psalm 1. He reads Hebrew beautifully. You get a sense not only of what it means but how it sounds.

F. F. Bruce

A few years ago I was asked to write the introduction to articles and essays by F. F. Bruce on biblical criticism.  Bruce (d. 1990) was a British classicist and well known New Testament scholar.  His judgments were always sober and insightful.  I never met Bruce but a good friend of mine was a student of his.  He has great stories about Bruce.  I did, in a way, meet Bruce through at least half a dozen books of his and articles I read.  He was one of the most influential Protestant biblical scholars of the 20th century.  His book Paul Apostle of the Heart Set Free was my first or second serious academic work on Paul

These essays are accessible and helpful.  It is available in ebooks.  Look for the title.  Bruce cover image
