Are 1 Cor 14:34-35 (“Women Should Keep Silent in the Churches”) Original to Paul’s Letter?

I saw this come up in Twitter today — Larry Hurtado’s comments on a recent study by Philip Payne concerning whether 1 Cor 14:34-35 were originally part of 1 Corinthians. His thoughts are concise and clear, so folks not into textual criticism can get something out of them immediately. Payne’s original article is accessible via a link on Hurtado’s page. Here are Peter Gurry’s thoughts as well (Evangelical Textual Criticism blog) for good measure. Very interesting! (And nice title,...

But this was not the only attempt at producing genetic evidence for Bigfoot. There were earlier and subsequent tests. Is there genuine evidence for Bigfoot DNA? The episode is now...

Michael Bird: Brief Thoughts on the New Perspective on Paul (NPP)

I get asked about my opinion of the NPP at events and on Q & A episodes of the Naked Bible Podcast. I always recommend Kent Yinger’s book,  The New Perspective on Paul: An Introduction. It’s short and clear. I’m happy to also recommend this brief set of comments from Michael Bird on the issue. It won’t educate you like Yinger’s book, but Bird captures my own thoughts. In a sentence: “The NPP is correct in what it affirms, but often wrong in what it denies.” That’s well said. Read what he means at the link (and get a...

David Meade and the Sept 23 Rapture: Living Testimony to Biblical Illiteracy

This is embarrassing. It shames Christ and tarnishes all those who sincerely try to understand Scripture and get people interested in it. There’s just no other way to put it. Lord willing after nothing happens on Sept 23 David Meade will just quietly disappear. But I doubt it.
