    Great stuff. I’m going to listen to this one a few more times. I like that Wright points out the complimentary relationship between Paul and Four Gospels, and that Paul’s writing is a continuence of the kingdom theme.

    I thought it was great stuff as well…but we don’t have a lot of company. 🙂

    It’s more fun to contend. Blessed are the peacemakers………..

    I remember first coming to PXP years ago and Michael telling me he wouldn’t read any author who hadn’t been dead for at least 150 years – my how times have changed. As I recall I told him I would take his advice and check the blog again 200 years from now. I guess we both have softened on our positions…

  6. NT Wright looks so much like a guy that I work with, it is hard for me to watch a video of him speak.

    That being said, I do like this video. Watched it on Dread’s facebook the other day.

    This is such good teaching. Thank you!

  8. Q says:

    His emphasis is on a new world and not on a new person.

    Old reformed/Calvinism = personal salvation – coming apostasy – return of Jesus
    New reformed/Calvinism = personal salvation – kingdom building – return of Jesus
    Neo reformed/Calvinism = kingdom building – personal/communal salvation – return of Jesus
    N T wright uses the New Perspective of Paul to emphasize the latter.

    Seems like changing the gospel and not trying to understand it in a different use of words because the culture is changing.

    Q,

    How much of Wright have you read?
    I think this is the Gospel…a bigger Gospel than many of us were taught, but the Gospel none the less.

  10. Q says:

    How did it get bigger? Is something being added?

  11. Q says:

    Or has it been truncated and is finally being discovered?

    A good intro to Tom Wright for those who are not familiar with him.

    70 AD…

  13. Q says:

    “A good intro to Tom Wright for those who are not familiar with him”

    A good Intro to be familiar of how some (like Tom Wright) want to change the gospel by adding to it.

  14. Babylon's Dread says:

    Tom made it plain.

  15. Q says:

    Tom convoluted it to change it.
