Did Augustine Believe in Biblical Inerrancy?

One of the most important figures of the Reformation died over a millennium before Luther was even born. B.B. Warfield explains his significance:

It is Augustine who gave us the Reformation. For the Reformation, inwardly considered, was just the ultimate triumph of Augustine’s doctrine of grace over Augustine’s doctrine of the Church. (The Works of Benjamin B. Warfield, IV:130)

Misunderstanding the Most Common Old Testament Literary Device

I could tell by the faces of my amazing adult Sunday School class, with whom I have such enriching discussions, that what I had just said did not register. I needed to call an audible. It was time to ditch (temporarily) my planned lesson and start a new, impromptu one. My class needed to learn about Hebrew poetic parallelism.

It’s hard to interpret the Old Testament without some knowledge of this ubiquitous literary form. I turned immediately to the Psalms Explorer in Logos to help me teach it. [Read more…]

The Name of Yahweh and the Angel of the Lord

In Exodus 3, God famously appears to Moses in a burning bush and sends him to rescue the Israelites. Fearing nobody will believe him, Moses says, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?” (Exodus 3:13).

And then God tells us his name.

Customize Your Bible Study

Most students seem to have their own method of studying the Bible. Some people love to mark up their Bibles with pens and highlighters; others fill up every square inch of a desk with lexicons, commentaries, original language texts, and theological works. One seminary student I know preferred to study by lining the walls of his small apartment with notes and article clippings; he would then pace the room, adding his own comments in the white spaces.

Was Mary a Virgin?


The prophecy of Isaiah 7:14 is among the most well-known passages in the book of Isaiah. It’s also one of the most controversial, for many reasons.

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin (עלמה, almah) shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

It’s difficult to get through the Christmas or Easter season without seeing one of the major news periodicals or educational television networks cast doubt about the meaning of almah (עלמה) in Isaiah 7:14. A favorite argument is that the Hebrew word almah cannot mean “virgin” but instead refers to a young woman of marriageable age—without respect to prior sexual activity. The more precise word for “virgin” is betulah (בתולה), a word not used in Isaiah 7:14. The New Testament author Matthew, we are so often told, mistakenly assumed the term meant “virgin.” His ignorance led to the doctrine of the virgin birth of Jesus. But are these assertions correct?
