Shepherd’s Conference (a conference for Pastors and Preachers) was a few weeks ago with the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and the theme of “We Preach Christ.”  Some of you who were not there still was able to enjoy the General Sessions because the Conference graciously livestreamed them.  However the various seminar sessions are what some people are looking forward to whether you were in the conference or not since they were more specific and occurred simultaneously with other seminar sessions.  Since there are 19 of them they are something that’s going to take some to time for me to listen through!

I know the official Shepherd’s Conference website says “Media Coming Soon” but the Audio MP3s of the seminar sessions can be downloaded by clicking on the title of the sessions below:

I appreciate Reformed Theological Seminary doing these videos for their #WisdomWednesday series which different faculty answers different questions in short video interview formats.

I appreciate Dr. Kruger’s contribution in understanding the Canon and also apologetics.

Here in this video he answers the question: “Did Jesus claim to be God?”

My first book review for 2017!

god-the-son-incarnate

Stephen J. Wellum. God the Son Incarnate.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, November 30th 2016.  480 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

This book is a part of Crossway’s Foundations of Evangelical Theology series.  I appreciated the series overall and this work on Christology is now among my top favorites in the series.  It is quite a meaty work and reading it was no small undertaking.  Reading this book makes me appreciate just how much Christian scholarship exists and how much that I still need to tap into.  I learned a lot reading this book.  In my opinion I think Stephen Wellum’s work is ideal as a seminary text book and for those who desire to seriously study the doctrines related to Christ more deeply.  In this review I am going to first summarize each parts and chapters of the book and end with some brief constructive criticisms.

Why Meditating on Christ Helps Us Fight Sin

Last week I wrote a post titled “How does the biblical doctrines of Christology help us have a more godly marriage?”  Of course studying Christ will impact all areas of the Christian life and not just marriage.  It has never ceased to amaze me how meditating and studying Christ have produced godliness in the lives of believers.  This is the case because the person and works of Christ become powerful motivations for the Christian fighting against sin.

Concerning my previous mentioned post, I realize sometimes people find some of my posts are too long to read at the moment.  So here’s a a witty ditty for your theology.  Or more precisely, here’s a witty ditty for your memory that hopefully remind you why meditating on Christ helps you fight against sin.  Are you ready for it?  Here it is:

Angel of the Lord Christophany

I do think the instances in the Bible in which there are manifestations of the Divine Angel of the Lord in the Old Testament it is probably Christ.  One such incident of the Angel of the Lord appearing happened to Hagar in Genesis 16:7-14. I believe this is the first time the Divine Angel of the Lord appears in Genesis.  For the purpose of this post let me quote the passage:

Now the angel of the Lord found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, by the spring on the way to Shur. He said, “Hagar, Sarai’s maid, where have you come from and where are you going?” And she said, “I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai.” Then the angel of the Lord said to her, “Return to your mistress, and submit yourself [a]to her authority.” 10 Moreover, the angel of the Lord said to her, “I will greatly multiply your [b]descendants so that [c]they will be too many to count.” 11 The angel of the Lord said to her further,

“Behold, you are with child,
And you will bear a son;
And you shall call his name [d]Ishmael,
Because the Lord [e]has given heed to your affliction.
12 “He will be a wild donkey of a man,
His hand will be against everyone,
And everyone’s hand will be against him;
And he will [f]live [g]to the east of all his brothers.”

13 Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, “[h]You are [i]a God who sees”; for she said, “Have I even [j]remained alive here after seeing Him?” 14 Therefore the well was called [k]Beer-lahai-roi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.
