Mothers on the Margin?

In this episode of The Stone Chapel

I talk with Dr. Anne Clements from her home in the UK about a book entitled Mothers on the Margin? The Significance of the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy, published by Pickwick Publications out of Eugene, OR. I’ve always been fascinated with the fact that Matthew annotates his genealogy by referencing five women who “begat” children (there’s something charming about the King James Version). Each of these women had a fascinating story and the part they play in Jesus’ lineage points to a different kind of future where outsiders are made insiders and where women occupy a significant place in the kingdom of God.

Jesus the Leper?

Was Jesus a leper? Well, in the Middle Ages you may have thought that he was because of the way Jerome translated Isa 53:4 in the Vulgate (the Latin translation of the Bible that became the main way that people encountered Scripture.

Dr. Andrew Abernethy, Associate Professor of Old Testament and Degree Coordinator for the Master of Arts in Biblical Exegesis Program, joined me on Exegetically Speaking to show us how Isaiah 53:4 was interpreted and translated in the Latin Vulgate by Jerome.  He translated it that Jesus was “like a leper” stricken by God and rejected for the diseases he bore.  As a result artists and paintings from the Middle Ages depict Jesus on the cross as suffering the marks of leprosy.

Author and Perfecter of Faith

Dr. Amy Peeler, Associate Professor of New Testament, joins Dr. Capes on Exegetically Speaking to talk about an important Christological statement in Hebrews 12:1-2.  What does it mean that Jesus is “the author and perfector of the faith”? How does that statement pull together a variety of motifs earlier in the letter?
