.Berkeley professor

.Epic of Gilgamesh


.Historical record

.Protestant reformation of the 16th century

.What does it mean when we say the scripture is inspired?

.God breathed

.How- into the air?

.His Spirit thru the people- apostles/prophets

.We are living letters

.Not just words on a page

.But the Word written by the Spirit- on our hearts [that’s the New Testament- not canon but regeneration]

.Gnostic books

.The question over Jude and Peter

.Was it pseudepigraphy?

.Socrates- Plato- Aristotle

.Why did Luther call the letter of James a ‘Straw epistle’?

.Fallible collection of infallible books?

.That was the original position of the reformers

.The Catholic church- and I- reject that position [to be fair- most Protestants as well]

.The issue was authority- where does it reside- in the scripture alone- or in the church too- which the bible calls ‘the pillar and ground of the truth’

1 Corinthians 12:27

Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.



As I sit down to write the notes for this video- I realized as I reviewed the video- well- it’s too much to write it all.
