This week’s Exploring Hope Podcast features a conversation with Dr. John Hammett. Dr. Hammett is a professor here at SEBTS and is an expert in all things theology. So, today Dr. Dew asks him about “the Fall” recorded in Genesis 3 and the important doctrines we form from it. What happened to humanity in that moment? And, what does that mean for us? Dr. Hammett walks through these issues in today’s episode. Tune in!
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.
