Here is another great video from the Asbury Theological Seminary’s Seven Minute Seminary series. Ben Witherington, Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Asbury Theological Seminary, addresses the often-disputed interpretation (and common misuse) of Romans 7. “Some point to Romans 7 as the proof-text for the saint-sinner paradox, suggesting that if even the apostle Paul struggled with his unrelenting flesh, Christians must face defeat in certain areas of their Christian life as well. On the contrary, Ben Witherington reveals that the ancient context illuminates the text in a way that eliminates Paul as the subject of this passage and paints a more optimistic picture of God’s sanctifying grace.”
Here is another great video from the Asbury Theological Seminary’s Seven Minute Seminary series. I often hesitate to post videos. I hesitate to post them because I don’t watch videos on other people’s blogs — they slow me down too much. You can’t scan a video. A 20 minute video is going to take 20 minutes. I like the Seven Minute Seminary series, though, because they are brief and to-the-point.
Here John Walton, Old Testament professor at Wheaton College, discusses the story of Noah in the book of Genesis.
