The Biblical Theology Briefings

Here are what I'd consider to be some of the best resources for preachers and bible readers that are available online today. Sermons with the scaffolding put back in place to help us see why the preacher drew the conclusions he did, and why he didn't pursue other avenues. Each of them especially paying attention to the impact of the story of salvation (Biblical Theology) upon the passage at hand. They're part of BeginningWithMoses.org which myself, David & Jonny Gibson and Andy Grundy have been running for about five years. I should also say we're always open to contributions from others, so if you want to write one here are our guidelines for contributors

  2. There's a mix of denominations above, though I'll grant from a more conservative stream. I'd love to see many papers from outside of this: find me the biblical theologian pastors...

    Should be said, though 2 of tht 4 on the team currently work for UCCF, neither of us did when we started the project.
