It was a blessing to have almost 700 people gather with us last weekend for the Read the Bible for Life Conference. I am hopeful that the time together will have a lasting kingdom impact.
The audio from the conference is now available.
David Platt argued for reading the Bible as a whole, centered on Christ. Here are his three plenary lectures:
Plenary 1: Reading the Bible as Story
Plenary 2: Teaching the Bible as Scripture
Plenary 3: The Bible Teacher’s Purpose
George Guthrie gave an overview of the problem of biblical illiteracy and how the “Read the Bible for Life” curriculum aims to address it.
The available breakout recordings are:
- Michael Card: “What would you expect?: Investigating the Gospel of Luke”
- Mark Dubis: “Observation skills: Laying an essential foundation for biblical interpretation”
- Kelvin Moore: “Understanding Hebrew poetry and the Psalms”
- David Olford: “Preaching the whole counsel of God: Principles for selecting texts & truths for doctrinal preaching”
- Kevin Chen: “Studying the longer books in the Bible: Structure & themes”
- Brad Green: “Is there a unity to the Bible?: Interpretting the Bible in light of the Bible”
- Taylor Worley: “Reading the Old Testament History again … and again” – Notes and Handouts (.pdf)
- George Guthrie: Leader Training for the “Read the Bible for Life” Small Group Curriculum
- Ken Easley: “Jesus’ Parables: Do we read them or do they read us?
Regrettably the recording of Paul Jackson’s session did not work.
We also have the audio from the panel discussion which I led with Platt, Guthrie and Card as panelists.
