BIBLICAL GRADUATE SCHOOL OF THEOLOGY

Issue No. 47

22-29 Nov 2009

Take A Look! It’s Worth Your Time! By Dr Augustine Pagolu
I would like to introduce to you one of BGST Library’s current journals.

Title:                Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology
Publisher:        Union Theological Seminary, Presbyterian School of Christian Education, New York.
Issue:               October 2009.
Focus:              The Gospel of John as the Church’s Book.
If you were ever to preach a series of sermons to your congregation, the four articles in this issue would form an excellent background. It seems that the first commentaries on any book of the New Testament were written on the Gospel of John, and the words of John’s prologue (that is 1:1-14), more than any other, seemed to have guided the councils of the early church to formulate the definitive statement of orthodox Christology. A special feature of this journal, ‘Between the Text & Sermon’, regularly offers semi-prepared sermons to aid the busy pastors. There are three of such sermons in this issue.
For more information on this journal, go to http://www.interpretation.org/current.htm
