#153 Is the Bible inerrant? Is ’Sola Scriptura’ correct? What about verses endorsing slavery?

January 19, 2023
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.  

First broadcast in 2019, this episode includes a bonus bit of 'Tom Unplugged' at the end!
