How should we interpret, preach, and apply the Scriptures? What are the challenges historical criticism and postmodernism pose to the unity of the Bible? How does the unity between the testaments oscillate on the person and work of Jesus Christ? How is the Christ event eschatological? What is the rule of faith and how should it function in our interpretation of scripture?
In this episode, Matthew Barrett talks with Craig Bartholomew about hermeneutics and the unity of Scripture.
