Leadership, according to Paul with Vuyani Sindo

Vuyani Sindo, George Whitefield College

Vuyani Sindo is Lecturer in Biblical Studies and head of the Biblical Studies department at George Whitefield College in Cape Town, South Africa.  He earned his PhD at the University of Stellenbosch.  In this podcast he talks with David Capes regarding what he’s discovered about leadership by reading Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians.  Although Paul founded the church, he found himself rejected by the church.  Most leadership studies, Sindo argues, focus the leader him/herself (anthropocentric).  Paul instead makes leadership theocentric, that is, all about God. Most leadership studies dabble in worldly wisdom and success strategies; Paul emphasizes that God is the one who gives the increase through the foolishness of the cross.  As more and more church leaders fail—often in public ways—Sindo believes that Christ-followers should identify with Christ and not their leaders.  Sindo offers some great insights on leadership for the church today!

The Intuition of Christ–Jason Barney

Jason Barney, Coram Deo Academy

Jason Barney, the principal of Coram Deo Academy, is an alumnus of both Wheaton College’s Classical Languages major (’09) and its MA in Biblical Exegesis program (’14). He has published two books, A Classical Guide to Narration and The Joy of Learning, and blogs on ancient wisdom for the modern era at www.educationalrenaissance.com. He enjoyed learning Latin during high school and then Greek and Hebrew at Wheaton, and loves the opportunity to lead within the growing classical schools movement where students can receive a deep grounding in the classical languages and their literary heritage. He has been thinking about Aristotle’s intellectual virtues, especially intuition, and he discusses how this might help us understand Paul’s point in 1 Corinthians 2 and elsewhere.

Sam I am and Divine Christology

I had a great conversation recently with “Sam I am” on his podcast and video cast. It had to do with my book The Divine Christ: Paul, the Lord Jesus, and the Scriptures of Israel (Baker Academic, 2018), and other things. The book has been out a couple of years and is gaining ground. Sam did a wonderful job shepherding the show; and while we might find some areas over which we disagree, he was not disagreeable. If you are interested in Christology, please pass this along!

The “Heart” of Philemon, Clint Burnett

Dr. Clint Burnett

Dr. D. Clint Burnett, Lecturer in New Testament at Johnson University, specializes in the study of the material culture of the classical world and how it aids interpretation of the New Testament. In that vein, he has authored Studying the New Testament through Inscriptions (Hendrickson, 2020). In this conversation with David Capes he recounts his earliest years with the Greek language and demonstrates how even a little knowledge of Greek can illuminate a letter like Philemon.
