Prolific NT scholar and blogging stud Dr. Scot (with 1 ‘t’) McKnight spoke at chapel yesterday morning. He challenged us seminarians and future pastors to do ministry not out of our “treasure chest” of ideas and vision, but out of a cultivated heart that is passionately following Jesus and loving people in His Way.
How do we do that? Read the Bible daily; Do what it says; and Respond to the need around us.
He says it much better than I just did so download the podcast…it’s good and has some very cool material from his up coming book “The Blue Parakette: Rethinking How We Read The Bible.” It’s worth downloading just for THAT material!
ps-I also found out Scot is working on a commentary on the book of James. It will be published by Eerdmans Publishing, next year I think…
pss-the jolly fellow chuckling in the background is my friend and other blogging stud John Frye (who was sitting to my left). I love his laugh
