Q&A#37 Bumper Q&A Episode!!

September 2, 2018

Today's questions:

1. Does the Scripture teach that the Holy Spirit indwells believers individually or corporately?

2. What do you think about ghosts, UFOs, bigfoot, etc?

3. You mentioned you like to listen to the Bible. Do you have a recommendations on recordings?

4. Which translation of scripture do you use for memorization?

5. You wrote a series in 2006 called "Election, Etc." which I have found very interesting and helpful. But 12 years is a long time, so I was wondering to what extent it still represents your views on election.

6. Reading a recent article by a rabbi, I noted that the interpretation of various aspects of OT is quite different from ours. If the Torah was given to them, shouldn't we let Jewish scholars teach us Christians?

7. Do you generally read from a "Reader's bible" or from a "regular" bible with chapter and verse references?

8. Have you engaged much with the Radical Orthodoxy crowd, like John Milbank and company?
