Power in the New Testament - a talk delivered at a Men's Evening
I was recently asked to give a short talk to a large church men's meeting, on the subject of power in the New Testament. If you are interested in having a read, see below for a more-or-less accurate transcript of the 20 minute talk.
I originally hesitated to tackle some of what I consider to be the less theologically robust Christian mens' teaching floating around, but in the end I decided to go for the jugular, which made it fun. Of course, I don't pretend that it was a complete summary of all that could be said about power in the NT, but it was enough to chew on. And a good sign: I really enjoyed preparing and preaching it!
