Today I am joined by John Higgins of The Bible is Art YouTube channel to discuss his work, the literary character of Scripture, and the book of Proverbs.
In Peter Leithart’s A House For My Name, he says that the mosaic covenant comes to an end when the ark is taken by the philistines in 1 Samuel. Is this correct to say the covenant has ended? Or that the Lord undergoes the punishment so as to continue his covenant with them? It seems the prophets during the monarchical period assume the continued validity of the mosaic covenant. If you could provide clarification and correction that would be helpful.
Who are Jim Jordan’s sources? It would obviously be fair to describe him as “innovative”, but it seems very much that there’s a chain where you have followed on from Peter Leithart, who followed on from Jim… but where did Jim learn his hermeneutic? Is he really so innovative an expositor that we can’t read what he’s read and see where he learned it all?
Wondering whether or not you see a tight connection between baptism and circumcision? If yes, why no mention of it in Galatians/Romans? If no, what’s going on with Colossians 2:11-12?
