Free This Month: Four Views on the Warning Passages in Hebrews

The five warnings written in the book of Hebrews have been difficult passages for believers throughout Church history, regardless of tradition.

In May’s Free Book of the Month, Four Views on the Warning Passages in Hebrews, four internationally known and respected biblical scholars engage these passages using the four views format. Gareth Cockerill, Buist Fanning, Grant Osborne, and Randall Gleason wrestle with the difficult questions of apostasy, the security of salvation, repentance and restoration for those who have “backslidden,” and the intersection between the sovereignty of God and the free will of man.

The Fourth Gospel: A Dramatic Masterpiece

John is at once the most complex and the easiest to understand of all the Gospels. If we want a young seeker or new believer to read something that is both clear and filled with the gospel and good basic theology, we give them the Gospel of John. And if we want to study an incredibly deep theological masterpiece that stretches the brightest mind, we open the Gospel of John.

It is perhaps Grant Osborne’s favorite book of the Bible, and enthusiasm for it shines on every page of the newest volume in the Osborne New Testament Commentaries, John Verse by Verse. [Read more…]

Does the New Testament Misquote the Old Testament?

Sometimes when a New Testament writer quotes the Old Testament, the two passages do not match precisely. Is the New Testament writer misquoting the Old Testament? Or is there another explanation?

Luke records that when Jesus began his ministry, he went to the synagogue in Nazareth on the Sabbath day. When he stood up to read the Scriptures, “The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him” (Luke 4:17). Jesus read the description of a climactic arrival of the anointed one from Isaiah 61:1–2, excluding the last half of verse two. That omission is understandable, but if you look at Luke 4:18–19 and Isaiah 61:1–2 side by side, several dissimilarities in what Jesus read are readily apparent. [Read more…]

How Technology Is Revolutionizing Pastoral Training

The printing press is often credited with bringing Scripture out of the control of the clergy and into the hands of everyday Christians. It spread the ideas of Reformers such as Luther and quickened the advance of the gospel and gospel theology. Printed books brought immense value, including easy and inexpensive access to the Bible and theological works.

But some Christians of the era opposed this agent of change, worried it would lead to error and heresy. Many of their dire predictions came true, and yet the benefits were so great that, in hindsight, any opposition strikes modern Christians as ridiculous. [Read more…]
