I have posted another three articles to my theology page.
You are the Christ (Mark 8:27-33) – Peter calls Jesus “Christ” and Jesus calls Peter “Satan”.
Varieties of Gifts (1 Cor 12:1-11) – The temptation to focus on the definitions of the gifts can cause us to miss the whole point of this passage which is about the diversity of the gifts.
The Way of Love (1 Cor 13:1-13) – We all know we’re supposed to love, but what does it mean in practise?
I am working on some more Mark and 1 Corinthians articles as part of my ongoing studies in these two books. I have been using the NICNT Commentary on 1 Corinthians by Fee and the Pillar Commentary on Mark by Edwards to keep me on track, and they have both been extremely helpful. My next planned 1 Corinthians article will be on chapter 15, so I am looking forward to reading some of my N T Wright “Resurrection of the Son of God” book as part of my research for that.
