Bruce Waltke Resigns from RTS – NEW UPDATE

Dr. Bruce Waltke, professor emeritus of Old Testament Studies at Regent College, has just resigned from his position as Professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS), as the result of a strife over his (somewhat reluctant support) for theistic evolution.

His remarks on this theme were made in a video filmed during the 2009 Theology of Celebration workshop in New York City. RTS asked Dr. Waltke to request the video to be taken down from the website that presented it (see HERE), which Waltke did, adding some ‘clarifications’, which were probably (strongly?) suggested by the seminary (you may find these and other details on this matter HERE). And a new comment HERE. Continue reading “Bruce Waltke Resigns from RTS – NEW UPDATE”

Sermon – Good news for the outsiders

Luke 4:21-30
Sermon almost preached at Gorbals Parish Church, January 31st 2010 – Fourth Sunday after Epiphany. The service was cancelled due to maintanance work on the building which hosts our congregation.

When I read the passage I was going to preach on, I knew I was in trouble. Because, if you read that passage carefully, you will realize that after Jesus preached in the synagogue, people took him outside of their town and almost threw him off a cliff. So, the logical conclusion is this: if I get this sermon right, you may just want to do the same to me. Continue reading “Sermon – Good news for the outsiders”

Referinte biblice pe arme produse in Statele Unite – UPDATE


Foto: Associated Press

Presa occidentala vuieste la vestea ca echipamentele de ghidare vizuala pentru armele folosite de armata americana in Iraq si Afghanistan au imprimate pe ele referinte biblice.

Echipamentul respectiv, produs de firma Trijicon, care a fost creata de un crestin, este folosit pe scara larga de armata Statelor Unite. Prezenta stranie a referintelor pe aceste echipamente destinate uciderii a fost remarcata recent, ca urmare a protestelor unor militari.

Giotto – Nasterea lui Isus Cristos

“The Birth of Jesus” and National Geographic Television:
Professors Professing Profanity to a Generation
of Doubters and Self-Indulgent Dimwits

by Archbishop Chrysostomos

Christmas and Easter, or the Nativity and Pascha, as they are more properly known in the Orthodox Church, occur at different dates than in the West (with infrequent exceptions for Pascha) for those of us who follow the traditional Church (or Old) Calendar. Nonetheless, we, along with Western Christians and those Orthodox who follow the New Calendar, are exposed to the mocking, quasi-scholarly, and often bigoted exposés of Christian belief in the Virgin Birth and the Resurrection of Christ that inevitably appear, in recent years, on American television during these festal seasons.

Versiunea Cornilescu – text si audio

Fratilor, stie cineva de unde poate fi downloadata versiunea Cornilescu de pe net intr-un format care afiseaza corect caracterele in Windows setat pe Western European characters?

De asemenea, de unde anume de pe internet se poate face download la versiunea Cornilescu a Bibliei in format MP3. Caut ceva de buna calitate.

Este rugamintea unui prieten din vest. Va multumesc anticipat.

Romanian Journal for Biblical Philology and Hermeneutics

INVITAŢIE

Necesitatea unei reviste de studii biblico-filologice româneşti nu este greu de argumentat. Pe de o parte, domeniul de cercetare este pe cît de vast pe atît de bine definit, pe de altă parte, în peisajul publicistic românesc lipsesc periodicele cu caracter ştiinţific consacrate exclusiv acestui tip de preocupări.
