A sin-filled podcast
Jim’s recent, impassioned and tear-jerking attempt promoted me, perhaps, but I spontaneously decided to do a podcast tonight, on a subject that we all hate to love ...
SIN! (Pronounced Siiiiiiiiiiiiin, if your are called Cardinal Spin. Or if you’re puritanical. Or just plain odd.)
Yep. Sin has been on my thoughts much recently. If you know what I mean.
In my thesis, I’ve just moved on to my exegesis of 2 Cor, and my friend, Volker, recently delivered a paper on 2 Cor 3:18 in Tübingen, and so I’ve worked some of my own thoughts about that verse around my ponderings on the nature of sin in Paul.
I won’t go ahead and say what I said cos that would be stupid, so I’ll just write:

I’m afraid that I’ve been having real problems with the audio recording due to a faulty microphone, so the quality is almost as bad as my preparation, but I hope you find some of the thoughts interesting, and perhaps even helpful.
By the way, I forgot to mention Berger’s work on the nature of sin in relation to Rom 7. He claimed, in Identity and Experience in the New Testament, that desire is the means by which sin rules over a person.
