Luther Seminary's Bible Q & A

My Favorite Bible Passage – Kathryn Schifferdecker

Listen to Audio

Podcast discussion with Eric Barreto, Cameron Howard and Kathryn Schifferdecker.
Article written by Kathryn Schifferdecker.

Like most believers, I love many different Bible passages, and different ones have been significant for me at different periods in my life. Lately, though, I’ve been particularly drawn to the 23rd Psalm. I know, that’s too much of a cliché to be taken seriously. But there’s a reason that many people, even if they don’t know any other passage of

Acts 2: A Church of Prophets - Matt Skinner

Matt Skinner, professor of New Testament at Luther Seminary, marvels at Acts 2 and how Peter's sermon on the Day of Pentecost describes a church of prophets -- a church made up of believers whose job it is to interpret how God is at work in the world and in one another's lives.

Finding God in the Middle of Nowhere: Acts 8:26-40 - Eric Barreto

Listen to Audio

Podcast discussion with Eric Barreto, Cameron Howard and Kathryn Schifferdecker.
Article written by Eric Barreto.

Have you ever found yourself at a strange point in life and wondered how you got there? Have you looked back at the coincidences and happenstance that brought you together with others in a particular place and time? That feeling of gratitude for God’s careful direction is one of the reasons that one my favorite texts in all of Scripture is a strange little story about a lonely

Paul as Pastor: Karoline Lewis

In this short video, Karoline Lewis provides insight on the Apostle Paul as a pastor who cares deeply about communities of faith that are experiencing transition and conflict.

"I think sometimes we don't know what to make of Paul or what to do with Paul," says Lewis in the video. What we do is forget that these were struggling congregations that were experiencing real issues. "Paul writes these letters with those issues in mind, so they're very particular, they're situational, they're occasional.

My Favorite Bible Passage – Matt Skinner

Listen to Audio

Podcast discussion with Eric Barreto, Cameron Howard and Matt Skinner.
Article written by Matt Skinner.

I’m drawn to biblical passages that make me see differently. My capacity to imagine what’s possible for the world is limited, and my ability to perceive the true nature of things is sometimes overly pessimistic. This makes me grateful for the Bible’s potential to urge me toward viewing my experiences and events around me in light of God’s grand intentions for humanity’s

What Motherly Images for God Are in the Bible? - Amy E. Marga

Listen to Audio

Podcast featuring Luther Seminary professors Eric Barreto, Cameron Howard and Amy Marga.

Article by Amy Marga.

The Bible offers a picture of God who mothers through the work of birthing, preserving, and nurturing God’s children. But such imagery is not without some tension.

God’s mothering work begins in childbirth, as most mothering work does. The sea leaps out of God’s womb (Job 38:8), and the ice is brought forth from God’s womb (Job 38:28-29). Creation thus is not just

One of my favorite teachers, Professor James Armstrong of Princeton Theological Seminary, used to say, “We teachers don’t have favorites ... and Dave Janzen is one of them.”

I feel the same way about the Bible. I was recently asked to blog about my favorite Bible

The Best Way to Read the Bible? – Mark Throntveit

Listen to Audio

Podcast discussion with Mark Throntveit, Eric Barreto, and Cameron Howard. Article by Mark Throntveit.

Let’s get one thing straight. There is no best way to read the Bible. Any way you are reading the Bible is good. It’s better to be reading the Bible once a week, standing on one foot, and wearing an orange fright wig than not reading the Bible at all! That being said, there are many ways to do so.

One time-honored way is to buy a new Bible for Christmas and then on New Year’s
