What I Read Online – 06/08/2012 (p.m.)

    • There may be a number of ways to answer this question, but it would appear to me that a fruitful starting place is the Christian claim that Jesus, the first century carpenter, died and subsequently rose from the dead. I’d start here because Christians base everything on this being true. The claims that Jesus’ body was no longer in the tomb and that he had been seen alive are foundational to Christian beliefs. Scrutinise them, consider the explanations, explore the alternatives, look at the impact on people at the time. Evaluate the counter claims, conspiracy theories, tampering of documents, and challenge the evidence. Public scrutiny and debate are a good thing if they’ll help us get to the truth of the matter.
    • I’m pleased to announce there will be an Auckland Intensive of the Youth Leadership Conference on July 28th at Grace Theological College. I’ll be teaching at this one day intensive on Matthew 11 – 12. You can register for the conference on intensive.ylc.org.nz.
    • The gospel rightly, thoughtfully, and in biblical faithfulness expounded, will not only win sinners to Christ but it will also shape the lives of Christians to greater conformity to Jesus.
