Bearing God’s Name–Carmen Imes

Dr. Carmen Imes

Carmen Imes (Ph.D., Wheaton College) is Associate Professor Old Testament at Prairie College (Canada). She has published several works including Bearing God’s Name: Why Sinai Still Matters (IVP, 2019). In this episode she discusses the command usually translated as “misusing” God’s name. It is about “bearing” God’s name so as to avoid misrepresenting who he is.

“Exegetically Speaking” is a weekly podcast of the friends and faculty of Wheaton College, IL and The Lanier Theological Library. Hosted by Dr. David Capes, it features language experts who discuss the importance of learning the biblical languages—Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek—and show how reading the Bible in the original languages “pays off.” Each podcast lasts between seven and eleven minutes and covers a different topic for those who want to read the Bible for all it is worth.

God’s Messiah in the Old Testament

Andy Abernethy, Wheaton College

Andrew Abernethy, PhD Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, is a former colleague of David Capes at Wheaton College.  He is an Associate Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College and Degree Coordinator for the Master of Arts in Biblical Exegesis.  He is author of many articles, but the focus of this podcast is a book he wrote along with Dr. Gregory Goswell of Christ College in Sydney, Australia.  It is entitled God’s Messiah in the Old Testament: Expectations of a Coming King (Baker Academic, 2020).  While some scholars find precious little “messianism” in the Old Testament, others find it in nearly every verse.  So, what is the truth?  Abernethy and Goswell take a book by book approach to work through those passages that look forward to a coming messianic king.

The Name of God

Dr. Aubrey Buster, Assistant Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, joins me on “Exegetically Speaking” to discuss the meaning of the Hebrew Name that God takes for himself during his first appearance to Moses. What its meaning was, why it was given, how it has been spelled and pronounced in the Hebrew and English traditions, and why these later forms were adopted.

The podcast is about 7 minutes.

Theology on the Web

Rob Bradshaw’s full time job is librarian at Spurgeon’s College in London. But he also has a passion for making theology available on the Internet.

Here is the website you need to know:

https://theologyontheweb.org.uk

Rob has digitized 40,000 articles from dozens and dozens of journals.  Some you have heard of.  Some you have not.  But he has done his due diligence to contact the authors and/or their heirs to make sure he has permission to put their work on the web so that people across the world can see it.

In this time of Covid-19 when libraries are closed and resources are scarce, it is great to have access to these articles.  They are cross-referenced by author, publication, topic, etc.

Rob has articles on a variety of disciplines: theology, church history, Old Testament, New Testament, and archaeology.  The website above mentioned above curates and organizes the entire collection of digitized articles.

Now, Rob does this on the side, as a gift to scholars, pastors, and students.  Access to the articles are free, but if you’d like to help him with some of the expenses, leave some money in the tip jar before you go.
