I'm off to my residential at ETCW for a couple of days. I'll be studying Job, Hebrew Grammar and Pastoral Principles and Practice next semester. The visit will give me the chance to use the library.
In the meantime, to keep us thinking: have you ever met a Christian who is godly and spiritual, but sometimes comes up with the craziest interpretations of Scripture? Or, have you ever come across (read or heard) someone who seems to have a very clear ability to interpret (exegete) Scripture and then find that he/she is not a believer? What's going on there?
Here's a quote from Moises Silva:
...our spiritual condition has no bearing whatever on the accuracy of our biblical exegesis.Is he right or wrong?
