Peter Escalante and I are ready to unveil a new web project. The Calvinist International will be a new site where we will post regular essays, editorials, and book reviews. I will be focusing my energy there for the foreseeable future, and so I invite you to follow the newest material over there.
I finally stopped ripping him off, and I decided to just come out and co-author a paper with Peter Escalante. We were energized to take on the recent misuse of Christology in anti-Calvinist polemics. The paper is over at the Credenda Agenda site now.
The paper will read like inside baseball to a lot of y’all, and I apologize. We felt that we needed to get down and dirty with a few points for the sake of those most intrigued by modern (and postmodern) “Christology.” The thesis is actually pretty basic though- The traditional history is actually pretty close to correct when it comes to Christological theology. The Reformed knew about this stuff and weren’t just poking their hands in the sand.
And most importantly, Christology should be about messiah and salvation. Whenever other interests take up the majority of your interest, you’re misusing the categories.
I want to announce that my church, Immanuel Presbyterian, will be hosting a conference with James B. Jordan this weekend. Saturday night, from 6:30-8:30, and Sunday morning, starting at 9am, Jim will be lecturing on the Joseph narratives of Genesis 37-50. These lectures will be an adventure in Biblical Theology, exploring creational echoes, Christological types, dreams, maturity, patience, service, and dominion.
We meet in Clinton, at Emeritus at Tracepointe, 501 E. Northside Drive. We’ll have accommodations for nursery and childcare. Come see us this weekend!
