What is the gopspel? N. T. Wright explains


Thirteen Minutes is precious time, but it will be well invested listening to what N. T. Wright has to say about the gospel. I encourage you to take a listen, you will not regret it.

Who is N. T. Wright?
N. T. Wright is an Anglican bishop and a leading New Testament scholar. Wright was the Bishop of Durham in the Church of England from 2003 until his retirement in 2010. He is currently Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at St Mary’s College, University of St Andrews in Scotland.

Among modern New Testament scholars, Wright is an important proponent of traditional views on theological matters including Christ’s bodily resurrection and second coming. Further he has expressed strenuous opposition both to the ordination of openly gay Christians and the blessing of same sex partnerships and marriages as occurs in the Episcopal Church (United States).

I really like him.

  1. I like this guy a lot. He has written some heavy duty theology, not easy reading but worthwhile, the parts that I have worked through.
    I also want to recommend Dallas Willard to any of you who are already familiar with him. Particularly his book, The Divine Conspiracy, and a video series of 6 lectures he gave called Hearing God. He taught philosophy at USC, and just died recently. I wonder what a secular university could have made of him?

    • Yeah, I remember him. It was him who said that “the spiritual formation field lacks intellectual rigor and testable information needed to put the Gospel and spiritual life in Christ on the cognitive map for the multitudes of people who are hungry for something real.”
      I am sure he made an impact in those circles. Thanks for sharing. May the Lord continue to bless.
