Wayne Grudem on Seeing the NT As a First-Century Reader

God’s Word is eternal, but between us and its earliest readers lies a chasm of time, culture, and language. Before we can apply Scripture to twenty-first-century life, we must first understand the world in which it was written.

Ask celebrated theologian Wayne Grudem, and he’ll tell you one of the best resources for glimpsing that world is a little-known work written nearly 100 years ago.

visualize-bible

For modern readers of the Bible, studying the ancient context of the text can be extremely difficult. There are so many unfamiliar details that get lost in translation. Cultural concepts that would have been woven into the fabric of these ancient societies are foreign to us. Massive structures like the temple in Jerusalem must be pieced together in our minds using only the descriptions found in the text.

What’s in a Name? If You’re Reading the Bible, Lots.

I remember having my world turned upside down when I learned that there is a positive version of name-calling in the Bible. It’s everywhere. What might come to mind for you are places like Matt. 3:8 where John the Baptist greets the religious leaders coming to see him as “You brood of vipers.” How’s that for a warm welcome! But the kind that I am talking about is the kind we typically just gloss right over without noticing.

Logos books are so much more than books. Each one is specially tagged to connect with the other resources in your Logos library and work seamlessly with Logos features.
