During our weekend services on August 11-12 we hosted Q&A sessions with Greg Boyd, our Senior Pastor, and Paul Eddy, our Teaching Pastor. If you’d like to listen to all the questions, note that there are separate downloads for the three different services. [This is the recording of the 11:00 Sunday service.]

Simple thought on NT interpretation through Christ and the cross…Paul was the foremost authority on “OT” and he did not originally interpret the OT through Christ, duh, right?. But when he met Christ and accepted the cross and Christ as God, he totally saw the OT differently and he saw the OT through Christ and the cross. It changed his lens of the OT.
I’m a little confused. I thought according to scholars Greg has recommended (such as Gordon Fee) that a Bible vs can only mean what it originally meant. The only time Fee says there can be additional or fuller meaning is in the case of prophecy with careful controls. Maybe I am mistaken but I thought Greg is now saying that is a fairly new understanding of interpretation and that throughout church history, there was more of an open understanding of interpretation with more than one meaning of a text. Or did he just mean with some O.T. verses??
