How Should Christians Treat Pop Culture? Just Like Paul Did.

pop culture

Growing up, I had limited experience interacting with people from other cultures. That all changed when I became a student at a university in Vancouver, B.C.—a city where fewer than half of the residents speak English as their first language. Surrounded by fellow students from unfamiliar cultures and worldviews, I was plunged into the role of the outsider. I quickly realized how difficult it was to communicate ideas when two people don’t share first languages, backgrounds or cultural reference points.

As I studied Paul’s teachings and letters in graduate school, I learned to appreciate why God selected him for the role of apostle to the Gentiles. A “Hebrew of Hebrews” (Phil 3:5) steeped in Old Testament traditions, Paul had to explain the gospel and its implications to people of mostly non-Jewish background. He was the perfect man for the task: Although raised a Jew, Paul was brought up in a Graeco-Roman context (e.g., Acts 21:39).

This background gave Paul an insider’s perspective into Graeco-Roman culture and the lives of those he was trying to reach. He engaged popular culture so he could better communicate the gospel.

Free Ebook: Stress-Free Tips for Getting Started with Digital Bible Study

mlwj-ebook

It was a little less than 600 years ago when a German goldsmith transformed the way we experience the Bible.

Gutenberg’s printing press put the Bible in the hands of Christians who never had access to it before, and it kicked off a revolution in Bible study.

Now, with Bible software and other digital study tools becoming increasingly common, we’re in the midst of another shift in the way Christians engage with God’s Word.

But getting started with Bible software can be intimidating. That’s why Dr. Mark Ward wrote a new book: to help you discover ways you can use digital tools in your study today. (And now that you can get a free version of Logos Bible Software, getting started has never been simpler.)

The Profound Implications of the New Dead Sea Scrolls Discovery

qumran

From 1946–1956, the discovery of 11 caves on the West Bank of the Jordan River shook the world of biblical scholarship. Tucked away in those caves were ancient, earthen vessels containing what we now know as the Dead Sea Scrolls—a cache of manuscripts with profound implications for the text and history of Scripture.

Now, some 70 years later, the discovery of a 12th cave has the world of biblical academia reeling once again.
