At a time when Old Testament and New Testament studies are considered to be two very different tasks, this major new work by Charles Scobie offers an approach to biblical theology meant to take in the entire sweep of divine revelation. Comprehensive in scope, this book covers every aspect of biblical theology. Chapters are devoted first to the nature and task of biblical theology and then to major themes within the biblical message -- God's order, God's servant, God's people, and God's way. Each section of the book also features an extensive system of helpful cross-references. Not only is Scobie's attempt to bridge the biblical testaments admirable, but he also takes great care to present scholarship that is at the same time informed by, and relevant to, the daily life and work of the church. The result is a book that is relevant to readers everywhere. Accessible to teachers, clergy, students, and general readers alike, this book will reinvigorate the study of the Bible as the unified word of God.
Much has been said about why Jesus died. This book focuses on why Jesus lived. God with Us: Encountering Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew shows that Jesus didn’t just come to be our teacher, a miracle work or prophet, or even just Israel’s savior and redeemer. Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us. Notable Scripture scholar Edward Sri leads readers on a faithful exploration of Jesus’s kingdom-building mission and how it revealed God presence, which remains with us today. Helpful discussion questions are provided for personal and group study. This newly expanded edition of the study originally titled The Mystery of the Kingdom: On the Gospel of Matthew is an outstanding introduction to the first gospel.
“ ‘Call out,’ the voice asserted. This direction edged into my brain and flooded my mental realm…” God can speak to any of us, anytime—but how do we hear Him? Christian author, Robert Avila, didn’t always recognize God speaking to him, until he discovered a pattern. In a collection of short stories from his life, Avila shares specific moments he acted upon promptings from a still small voice—saw the outcome—and noticed God using him as a vehicle to carry out tiny—and sometimes enormous—miracles. But how did Robert know it wasn’t just his own thoughts? In this collection of interactions with God told in short-story form, he explains how God breaks the chains of religious indoctrination and sets us on the narrow path. He teaches us the techniques God uses to draw us nearer to Him and guide us toward our life’s purposes. Perhaps God is speaking to you, but you don’t recognize His voice. Just like there are hundreds of radio waves—some producing clear sounds, others inaudible—there are more than 100 ways God communicates. In this book, Robert Avila teaches you how to transform your faith—tune-in—and hear Him.
The apostle Paul was a man of many journeys. We are usually familiar with the geographical ones he made in his own time. This volume traces others--Paul's journeys in our time, as he is co-opted or invited to travel (sometimes as abused slave, sometimes as trusted guide) with modern and recent Continental philosophers and political theorists. Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Benjamin; Taubes, Badiou, Zizek, and Agamben--Paul journeys here among the philosophers. In these essays you are invited to travel with them into the regions of philosophy, hermeneutics, political theory, and theology. You will certainly hear the philosophers speak. But Paul will not remain silent. Above the sounds of the journey his voice comes through, loud and clear.
