1. There’s a brand of evangelicalism that loves Tom Wright, because, much like the Bible, they read him out of context and put words in his mouth.


  2. Doesn’t the fact that one is a “non-inerrantist” means that they are still on the side of inerrant when it pertains to theological and ecclesiological teaching? I am wondering about that, because Christians still need a road-map, a blueprint of sorts for church government, world view, or “cosmovision”, and conduct and if we “vary” on that there will be no more Christianity…
    In the other hand I have no idea, knowing that I use the following as an example ad nauseum, why would God inspire Paul to tell Timothy not to drink water but wine for his constant stomach issues when we know that dehydration plus alcohol is deadly today and I am sure it was deadly then? So, on these things, history and advice outside Christian doctrine, I am not in the inerrant side.
    I guess there must be a reason for the Christological Hermeneutics; in my view it filters off that which is “fat” and unnecessary for “life and Godliness”… Perhaps that’s why Jesus in the way to Emaus said that Moses (the Law), the Psalms and the Prophets speak of Him… we can take that to our eternal bank… Was Jesus an excludent as to any other revelation about Him previous to the N,T.? Now as far as history and medical advice, I’am not so much of an inerrant… Am I now a heretic, or a hairy tick for saying this?

    My favorite quote from his book The Last Word, which should be a must read as in intro to Scripture, “The risen Jesus, at the end of Matthew’s Gospel, does not say, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth is given to the books you are all going to write,’ but ‘All authority in heaven and on earth is given to me.’ This ought to tell us, precisely if we are taking the Bible itself as seriously as we should, that we need to think carefully what it might mean to think that the authority of Jesus is somehow exercised through the Bible.”

    As an example, 1st and 2nd Timothy was most likely not written by Paul.
