Matthew Barrett- Canon, Covenant, and Christology Rethinking Jesus And The Scriptures Of Israel

Posted On March 23, 2020

On today’s Equipping You in Grace show, Dave and Dr. Matthew Barrett discuss Scriptural authority and biblical Trinitarian Christology, help in reading the Gospels of Matthew and John, and why Jesus’ authoritative interpretation is the key to understanding how the mighty acts are given to fulfill the covenant promises, along with his book, Canon, Covenant, and Christology Rethinking Jesus And The Scriptures Of Israel (IVP, 2020).

What you’ll hear in this episode

  • Why it’s crucial, we understand the Scripture Jesus read and inherited within His Jewish context were the Scriptures of Israel.
  • Why Jesus’ authoritative interpretation is the hermeneutical key to understanding how the mighty acts are given to fulfill the covenant promises of God.
  • Why the act of fulfillment is so important to Matthew and John’s Gospel and why it helps Christians to read the Gospels.
  • Why it’s essential that our understanding of Scriptural authority be rooted in biblical Trinitarian Christology.
  • Help for evangelicals to understand why they have superior Christological warrant for their view of Scripture than that of their critics.
  • What it looks like to situate our doctrine of Scripture within the structure of divine revelation itself.
