The moral vision and positive values of Old Testament law in the economic, social and political realms. We present the 'big picture' of OT ethics but still touch on a few common questions (Year of Jubilee, slavery, sexual ethics, etc.).
Special Guest: Dr. Christopher Wright, author of Old Testament Ethics for the People of God
What is the Imago Dei and where is it taught in Scripture? How do humans differ from mere animals? Are there ethical implications? How does this relate to topics such as incarnation, resurrection and suffering?
Professor Patrick Smith joins Backpack Radio to discuss some important questions:
- What are some of the ethical issues regarding end of life care?
- What are the different opinions about these issues?
- What are some things Christians should be thinking about when it comes to end of life care?
- What are some basic principles Christians should have so that they might make biblically faithful decisions when it comes to end of life care?
Special Guest: Professor Patrick T. Smith. Professor of Theology and Philosophy at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
Bonus: hilarious (seminary-style humor) farewell video for Dr. Wegner by the Phoenix Seminary homies.
