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?”

We have in the past posted on our blog Michael Kruger Faith to Life Lecture on the Self-Authenticating Scripture and his Four Lectures on the Canon by Michael J. Kruger (Free MP3s!).  Dr. Kruger is a Seminary president, New Testament Scholar, Presuppositional apologists and author who has made his contribution towards the work of the Lord in more ways than one.  Here’s a short video on “What It Means That the Bible Is Self-Authenticating:”

Michael Kruger has given a lecture at Clearwater Christian College on February 13th, 2015 on the Self-Authenticating Scripture.  This is an important lecture.  I appreciate his nuance and distinction between Self-Authentication versus Self-Attestation of Scripture.  Self-Authentication is not just merely self-attestation which refers to what Scripture has to say about itself although it does not conflict with it.  Self-Authentication refers to the quality, attribute and character of Scripture that bear out it’s own Divine Origin.  It is synonymous with “self-evidencing.”

Hope you learn from it!

Newsweek attacking the Bible pretty serious

Earlier in December I wrote a piece concerning the recent Newsweek article attacking the Bible titled “.”  Originally I was going to write a series of posts responding to Kurt’s hit piece but the Holiday season made it difficult.  But alas, there is nothing new under the sun and fortunately there have been many Christian responses to the article already.  Rather than be redundant, I thought I share in this post some of the responses out there available online already.

I think Christians responding to the article is good; it’s sad for me seeing how some people would only look up to these routine sensational pieces from Time and Newsweek and think it is serious scholarship against Christianity when there are scholarly responses out there.  I think the ignorance and pseudo-scholarship is so bad it’s a sin.

1.) New Testament Scholar Dan Wallace’s Predictable Christmas fare: Newsweek’s Tirade against the Bible

2.) Apologist James White’s “Eichenwald and Newsweek Refuted” Videos:

3.) New Testament professor Michael Kruger’s “A Christmas Present from the Mainstream Media: Newsweek Takes a Desperate Swipe at the Integrity of the Bible Part 1 and (Part 2)

4.) Seminary President Al Mohler’s  Newsweek on the Bible — So Misrepresented It’s a Sin

Michael J. Kruger has recently authored a new book on the Canon of the Bible.  He is a professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, NC.  I will be listening to these four lectures on the origins and development of the Canon!  According to Monergism, they were produced for the Kistemaker Lecture Series, RTS-Orlando, March 2012.  If John Frame’s endorsements on the back of Michael J. Kruger’s new book mean anything, it seems that Kruger has added the insights of Presuppositional apologetics in the discussion of the Canon and the defense of the Canon, and that’s exciting!  It’s wonderful to see Van Til being relevant.

“The Definition of ‘Canon’: Exclusive or Multi-Dimensional?” (MP3)

“The Origins of Canon: Was the Idea of a New Testament a Late Ecclesiastical Development?” (MP3)

“The Artifacts of Canon: Manuscripts as a Window into the Development of the New Testament”(MP3)

“The Messiness of the Canon: Do Disagreements Amongst Early Christians Pose a Threat to Our Belief in the New Testament?” (MP3)
