#7 Bible infallibility, Sola Scriptura and slavery

February 12, 2019
Ask NT Wright Anything
Ask NT Wright AnythingPremier

How should we treat the Bible? Inerrant? Infallible? Does it contain errors? Tom  answers questions on the nature of the Bible as well as related issues such as whether the Reformers were right to concentrate solely on scripture rather than church tradition, and whether there is a ‘trajectory hermeneutic’ when it comes to issues like slavery in the Bible.
