R. C. Sproul and Derek Thomas – Theology in Dialogue

“Dr. Sproul was joined by Ligonier teaching fellow Dr. Derek Thomas for a relaxed and informative evening of theology and dialogue. These notable theologians and pastors answered questions submitted through social media and from a live audience at Saint Andrew’s Chapel in Sanford, FL. The topics addressed included God’s nature, Islam, finding a local church, Scripture, and more.”

Servants of Grace has embarked on a study of the book of Ephesians. I encourage you to check out what was posted this past week:

Andrew Sibley – Adam as the Protoplast: Views from the Early Church in Response to the Archetypal View

“Although some of the Church Fathers used the theological language of archetype, it was in the context of Christ being the archetype of Adam and mankind. This is then different to the primary way that Walton has used it to suggest that the Bible speaks functionally of Adam being an archetype for the whole of humanity — one man as representative of other men alive at the time.”

Ken Ham and Tim Lovett – Was There Really a Noah’s Ark & Flood?

“The account of Noah and the Ark is one of the most widely known events in the history of mankind. Unfortunately, like other Bible accounts, it is often taken as a mere fairy tale. The Bible, though, is the true history book of the universe, and in that light, the most-asked questions about the Ark and Flood of Noah can be answered with authority and confidence.”
