What is the biblical and historical evidence for the resurrection? What does it mean when Scripture says we carry around the death of Jesus in our bodies? How can Christians be deeply committed to interpreting the Bible faithfully while also taking care not to become legalistic?
These are some of the listener questions that Russell Moore and producer Ashley Hales engage on this episode of The Russell Moore Show. Their conversation covers big-picture ideas like how to think about Scriptural interpretation and gets specific about certain passages in the Bible. Questions in this episode include:
- What books or resources give evidence for the resurrection?
- How does the concept of knowing Christ’s power in his resurrection (Philippians 3) work with the idea that we carry around in our bodies the death of Jesus (2 Corinthians 4)?
- What should we do if two passages of Scripture seem to contradict each other?
- Can a marriage thrive if spouses have different convictions about important theological issues?
- How can we guard against becoming people who have great biblical knowledge but little Christian character?
Resources mentioned in this episode include:
- “Evidence for the Resurrection of Christ” by Peter Kreeft and Fr. Ronald Tacelli, SJ
- The Resurrection of the Son of God by N.T. Wright
- Is Easter Unbelievable? by Rebecca McLaughlin
- “A conversation with Tim Keller about ‘Hope in Times of Fear’”
