An Easter ‘thought for the day’.

In Ephesians 1:18-20, St Paul wrote:

‘I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honour at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms’ (New Living Translation).

No words of my own could suffice so well as an Easter ‘thought for the day’ than these! Christ is risen! And his people rise to new life with him, and this life is eternal (Romans 6:23). It’s incredible to ponder the fact that the same power which brought Christ back from death can be at work in us too.

I’d like to wish all staff and students with KEDS (and anyone else reading this) a blessed and joyful Easter.

Christ is risen: he is risen indeed, Alleluia!

D.A. Carson Interviewed on Biblical Exegesis

Video interview with Don Carson by R. C. Sproul on the task of exegesis

Incidentally, Carson’s Exegetical Fallacies is a fabulous study of some of the most common hermeneutical fallacies that exegetes face when interpreting scripture. The book identifies common grammatical, lexical, cultural, theological, and historical mistakes that preachers, pastors and students make frequently.
