But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Are We There Yet?

Written by

Nearly every summer, my parents loaded my siblings and me into the family car and embarked on that common vacation ritual known as “the road trip.” Years later, as the father to my own young children, I have a sense of what my parents experienced on those trips. I now often hear the...

The Sweetness of Biblical Authority

Written by

The first Psalm sets the stage for the entire Psalter. Its attention on the covenant God and covenant blessing and cursing, as well as its preoccupation with God’s Word as the source for our understanding, focus the entire Psalter. In fact, as scholars like O. Palmer Robertson have contended,...

Up From the Grave He Arose

Written by

The truth is that the origin of the church in Jerusalem is explicable if Jesus really rose from the dead, and it is not explicable if he did not so rise. The very existence of the Christian church is a mighty testimony to the resurrection of our Lord. But, it will be objected, that...

The Divinity of the Messiah

Written by

We are going to try to begin to set forth in positive fashion a little bit at least of what the Bible says about the deity of Christ. If we are going to do so with any completeness we should have to begin with the Old Testament. It is true, the Old Testament does not set forth...

Attending a lecture last week on the politics of gender, I turned to a friend and said, “You and I were pessimists before we heard that. How are you feeling now?” To which he replied, “It’s enough to make me take up drinking again.” Some of us, I returned, had never...

What Is Imputation?

The Holy and Righteous Adam

Written by

Closely related to Jesus’s identity as the Holy One of God is his identity as the righteous one. Indeed, Luke tightly links these predications for Jesus in Acts 3:14 (ton hagion kai dikaion), where they are best taken not as hendiadys but as complementary perspectives on Jesus’s...

Saved as Sons in the Son

Written by

Redemptive solidarity with the Son of God is at the heart of Paul’s soteriology, and the filial terms employed by Paul communicate this Spirit-wrought union. To the point, Paul’s huiothesia exploits the etymological connections between huios (“son”) and huiothesia to depict...
