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.

TheologyontheWeb.org.uk

Rob Bradshaw, Librarian Spurgeon’s College, London

Rob Bradshaw, librarian at Spurgeon’s College in south London, has been digitizing articles, journals and books for 20 year to provide people around the world access to high value theological resources.  His website, www.theologyontheweb.org.uk, is a hub for a variety of websites that links pastors, students and teachers with resources in biblical studies, theology, church history and practice theology.  After working in Nepal, Rob realized how deeply poverty was affecting Christians around the world.  Nepalese Christian leaders who wanted to learn had no way because resources were not available.  To date, he and his wife have digitized or digitised (British spelling) over 45,000 articles and hundreds of books.  The work is hard, expensive and painstaking, yet Rob has a calling.  He has had over two million visits to his site and seven tera-bytes of downloads.  As the shadow of Covid-19 grows longer, those who have no theological library ready to hand are turning more and more to “TheologyontheWeb.”

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.

Dr. Bruce Chilton

In part two Bruce Chilton, Bernard Iddings Professor of Religion at Bard College (New York), continues his conversation with David Capes about elements of his book, Resurrection Logic: How Jesus’ First Followers Believed God Raised Him from the Dead (Baylor University Press, 2019).  How does the resurrection of Jesus compare with ancient myths about the dying and rising gods?  What does Paul say about what it means to be human?  How does the Jesus’ resurrection call forth a new humanity and a new creation?
