Christ the Center engages in a rich discussion with Richard Gaffin about the place of Pentecost in redemptive history. From their website:
Drawing from his book Perspectives on Pentecost and his “Acts and Paul” lecture notes, Dr. Gaffin explained the place of Pentecost as the culmination of that complex of events surrounding the person and work of Jesus Christ which includes his incarnation, death, resurrection, and ascension. Pentecost, then, occurs as part of the accomplishment of redemption and is therefore unrepeatable although its significance and effects reverberate throughout the Christian life. This is a rich biblical theological discussion that will repay frequent rehearsals.
CTC lead a very interesting discussion with George Scipione about the need and practice of biblical counseling. Scipione is professor of pastoral theology and Director of the Biblical Counseling Institute at Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
The CTC boys discuss the importance of believing in a historical figure named Adam, who in some Christian circles believe him to be a mythical figure.
Christ the Center tackles the false dichotomy that many Christian’s see in the role of a pastor — often choosing between his study of Scripture to teach his flock and his doing of pastoral ministry that focuses on caring for the flock.
July 1st saw the final day of the Albert Mohler Radio show. Long time colleague Russell Moore hosted the final program to interview Mohler and look back at his massive legacy of work in radio. I will miss Mohler’s program, but don’t you miss this final episode.
The lads at Christ the Center invite Joseph Pipa to discuss the impact William Perkins had on influencing Puritan preaching.
Very interesting and enjoyable workshop that Colin Adams highlighted on his blog. From his blog:
Preaching from the Old Testament prophets can be hard. And as a pastor, you might feel alone. The prophets were the great preachers of their day. Yet, they faced similar challenges. And their message needs to be heard. This workshop is for pastors to get together and think carefully about how to preach from the Old Testament, focusing specifically on the prophet Zechariah.
