Was Jesus God?

December 20, 2007

First Hour Audio
Two More Hours on Bob Kincaid’s show

Christmas is around the corner, and there are two subjects you are not supposed to talk about in polite company: religion and politics. I deal with politics every day. So why not go after religion?

My guest today, Darrell Bock, is a Research Professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. He is an editor for Christianity Today and past president of the Evangelical Thelogical Society. He is the author of Dethroning Jesus Concepts: Popular Culture’s Quest to Unseat the Biblical Christ.

I’ve always felt that I should be able to discuss any controversial topic. Some of you will be unhappy with my evangelical guest. Some of you will be unhappy with me for questioning and challenging the basic tenets of Christianity.

But hopefully many of you will hear a conversation of respectful disagreement, where all questions may be asked and none fear the consequences of the answers. Here’s your chance — whatever your beliefs — to explore the beliefs of others. I hope many of you call in.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    The obvious answer is that Pat Robertson is traveling a highway with destination hotter than Needles, Ca

    Pat “I am a businessman” Robertson is claiming that the following quote from the Bible taken from Isiah Chapter 35 is proof that I-35 is a divine highway.
    “A highway shall be there, and a road,” reads a portion of the chapter’s verse eight, “and it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean shall not pass over it…”
    Ask yourself this, which is more likely? That I-35 is a divine highway? Or is this a ploy to get Christians to think that the expansion of this highway into the NAFTA superhighway is some how a good thing and is god’s will? The answer seems pretty obvious.

    Sean–“mercurious” is a misspelling with perhaps its own subliminal meaning–but something that is already there–cannot be imposed–it just is–as white light contains all the colors of the rainbow and all the meaning that life can bring
    Guided by Inner Light
    The sage is illumined
    by an inner light
    glowing the awareness
    of the Tao,
    Knowing giving
    is the same as receiving,
    and truth teaching
    is the job of living,
    In raising collective consciousness
    to new levels of conduct
    where compassion is spread impartially,
    all inclusively, spontaneously,
    to cover all possible scenarios,
    Realizing the bad man is but
    the good man’s opportunity
    to do love’s duty,
    instructing while conveying respect,
    without judging,
    One thought,
    one action
    at a time,
    making the universe
    a better place.

    Did you mean Mercurius? I liked your poem too, and in fact enjoyed all the ones you’ve been posting on the different threads the past couple days.
    I liked the theme of the Adam man and the ideas of light bringing – but I don’t suppose to impose the white of any light. How about thoughts of the colored lodges of man?
    Blue under the open sky…
    Red revolutionizing change…
    White enlightening the elevated…
    Black to balance the man god white…
