You’ve Probably Never Seen the Real King James Version

Everyone knows the KJV was translated in 1611, but almost no one has read a 1611 KJV. Not only do the great majority of KJV editions actually come from a 1769 revision (one of a series of revisions), but even the “1611” editions available online are not perfect representations of the intentions of the KJV translators.

In an era before computers, typographical errors were introduced into the very first printed editions of the King James Bible. Subsequent printers and editors over a century and a half built up their own patina of miscellaneous, minor alterations on top of the KJV, until the text we now generally use was established by Oxford’s Benjamin Blayney almost 250 years ago.

If Something in the Bible Is Weird, It’s Probably Important

One of the things I enjoy telling people in conversations about Bible study is that “if it’s weird, it’s important.” Numbers 5:11–31 certainly qualifies in both respects. The strangeness of the passage is easily detectable, but only careful Bible study makes its importance apparent.

Video: Wayne Grudem Responds to His Critics

Last summer, a theological debate exploded across the internet on a subject many would have thought was settled all the way back at the Council of Nicaea: the Trinity.

No one was arguing for a fundamental reinterpretation of this historic Christian belief. Instead, theologians and bloggers were arguing about the nature of the relationships within the Trinity.

All parties agreed that during his time on earth, the Son of God was subordinate to the Father. But what about prior to the incarnation? Is the Son of God eternally subordinate to the Father? [Read more…]

The First Great Theological Battle in the History of the Church

In his letter to the Galatians, the Apostle Paul sought to correct a church that had lost the heart of the gospel. Dr. Grant Osborne calls this letter “the first great theological battle in the history of the church.” At the core of the disagreement was the place of traditional Jewish religious practices for Gentle converts to Christianity. The Jewish Christians of the Galatian churches believed that Gentles had to become Jews—be circumcised and submit to the Mosaic law—before they could be saved. These Judaizers were convinced that the law was still the heart of the gospel, rather than Jesus’ actions on the cross.

The Unspoken Question at the Heart of the Trinity Debate

trinity debate grudem

In this post,  Dr. Peter Leithart weighs in on the recent debate concerning relationships in the Trinity. Don’t miss Michael Bird’s overview of the debate over at the Logos Academic Blog. Then, visit this blog next Tuesday for an exclusive video of Wayne Grudem responding to his critics.

And for multiple perspectives on this issue—including video lectures from Wayne Grudem and Bruce Ware—check out the Mobile Ed course Perspectives on the Trinity: Eternal Generation and Subordination in Tension (40% off until June 9). 

The recent Evangelical brawl about the Trinity has focused on the work of Bruce Ware and Wayne Grudem, both of whom have denied the eternal generation of the Son and said that the Son is eternally “subordinate” to the Father.

On the first point, the critics are entirely correct, as both Ware and Grudem now admit. The debate concerning eternal “subordination” has been more chaotic and proportionally less illuminating. Some critics responded as if Ware and Grudem were Arians, teaching that the Son is ontologically inferior to the Father, a being somewhat less than fully divine. Both vehemently deny this charge. Ware and Grudem are instead talking about a taxis of equally divine persons, and Grudem has produced an impressive catalog of reliable Protestant theologians who also talk of the eternal “subordination” of the Son. If nothing else, he has demonstrated that his terminology isn’t novel.
