New Credo Podcasts: Canon, Covenant and Christology
We just released two episodes of the Credo podcast where Dr. Matthew Barrett is interviewed on his new book, Canon, Covenant and Christology: Rethinking Jesus and the Scriptures of Israel. This is the latest contribution to D. A. Carson’s New Studies in Biblical Theology Series (IVP). Listen in to the podcasts today!
What were Matthew Barrett’s motivations for writing Canon, Covenant and Christology? What is divine authorial intent and why does it expose a contradiction in evangelical hermeneutics? Why is sensus plenior essential to reading scripture like a Christian? Why is typology so critical to the unity of the canon? Why is Christ the hinge of the canon? Why is the concept of covenant so pivotal to a right view of Christ and the canon? Who is the real father of biblical theology, Gabler or Vos?
In part one, Samuel Bierig interviews Matthew Barrett on his new book: Canon, Covenant and Christology: Rethinking Jesus and the Scriptures of Israel.
What does the fulfillment theme in Matthew say about the canon as a whole? Why does John use of Old Testament imagery to capture who Jesus is and what he came to accomplish? What does eschatology have to do with the relationship between Israel’s Scripture and the coming of Christ? Does Christ’s covenant obedience to the scriptures say something about the scriptures? How does Jesus’s Trinitarian origin further substantiate the canon’s credibility? Are evangelicals dogmatically malnourished? How might a dogmatic perspective help us see the canon as Jesus himself did?
In part two, Ronni Kurtz interviews Matthew Barrett on his new book: Canon, Covenant and Christology: Rethinking Jesus and the Scriptures of Israel.
