New Testament Imperatives
What commands does God give in the New Testament that are binding on all people of all times? How can we know whether commands are for us or not? The Greek language of the New Testament has many ways of expressing imperatives, what is the significance of each of these different ways? This project hopes to produce answers for these significant questions.
The Canon of the Bible: A Reader of Primary Sources
How do we know that we have the right books in our Bible? The purpose of this project is to provide the earliest and best witnesses to the authenticity of the books of the Bible we possess.
The Parables of Jesus
Most texts on parables argue over the number of parables in the NT and confine themselves to that number. The Bible argues that all of creation and history is parabolic in nature because that is part of God’s purpose for it (Psalm 19, Romans 1, 1 Corinthians 10:6, 11). This project would take a much broader view of parables and seek, in the first place, to equip the reader to recognize the lessons that the physical universe provides and to confidently identify their spiritual parallels and purposes.
A Pauline Theology
This project would be the product of many years of reading and teaching the Pauline epistles. While Martin Luther wrote extensively on the letters of Paul, very few Lutherans have undertaken to summarize Paul’s theology in a single work.
Children’s Book series
This project uses the visual building blocks of learning to provide the foundation for lessons about life, from the most basic to the more complex. Recognizing the parabolic nature of the physical universe suggests that these simple visual forms can convey significant lessons for adults as well.
The Model is the Bottleneck
A study of how the mindset of people today cannot make sense of anything the Bible says until the biblical model is explained.
A study of how the corruption of human nature has co-opted Christianity while the Christianity of the Bible remains mostly unknown.
