Some searchers were disappointed with my previous post which was just basically a plug for a good article by Don Carson.
This article is much better than his later book. He seems to be slowly turning into a Roman Catholic and now seems to see “the Church” (by which he seems to mean the Hierarchy, the teaching elite and their adherents) as being much more important than mere congregations .
You have probably guessed that I take an opposite view.
Nevertheless, his emphasis on the way God’s Authority works through the Biblical Story is refreshing and rings a lot of bells.
