The true message of the gospel can sometimes get confused by those who claim to be Christians. Unfortunately, there is often a difference between the Christianity found in the Bible, and the “Christianity” which is lived out in our culture. In the video below, Dr. Jamie Dew sits down with Dr. Derek Hicks to discuss the disconnect which can be observed in history, as well as how much it inhabits our current culture.
The opening chapters of the Bible have been the subject of many debates. Since it is the account of the beginning of the entire created universe, it raises many questions that relate to cosmology, biology, theology, and hermeneutics. What is really being said in those first two chapters of Scripture? Dr. Ken Keathley invites us to ask ourselves what the worldview of the original audience would have been, as well as determine the purpose of creation account. Once we get our hermeneutic right, we can start to ask the questions that involve science and other studies such as: “Were they 6 literal days of creation?” and “How old is the earth?” Take a couple of minutes to watch this video where Dr. Keathley provides some expertise, as well as a helpful perspective on such a controversial couple of chapters.
On this week’s episode of Exploring Hope Podcast, Dr. Dew chats with Dr. Matt Mullins, professor of English here at SEBTS about the importance of literature. For centuries, literature has been among the greatest of the accomplishments of the arts and humanities and served to teach us much about the world, history, the human condition, and, particularly, our own selves. Tune in as Dr. Mullins explains the impact and import of literature and gives us some tips for diving into the vast world of literature that mankind has written!
