Neither the Scriptures nor the Power of God Pt. II

This Week's Texts:  Mark 12.18-25

Teaching Link: Neither the Scriptures nor the Power of God Pt. II

Things from the teaching to think about:

  • As Mennonites we have a high view of Scripture.
  • Americans don't know the scripture as much as they think. 
  • Defending the scripture has made it impossible to read
  • We need a “Third Way” understanding of scripture that is consistent with Anabaptism and distinct from evangelicalism and American culture.
