What’s gone wrong in Biblical theology? We’ve turned the Bible into an object to master, instead of letting it master us. Dr. Hans Boersma’s new book, Five Things Theologians Wish Biblical Scholars Knew, opens this conversation up very well, reminding us the job of the Biblical scholar is not primarily historical. Matt and Derek discuss its ins and outs with Dr. Boersma, and things get a little spicy when the topic of Sola Scriptura comes up.
