Remembering Tim Keller
Canon Fodder
by Michael Kruger
2h ago
One year ago on this day, we said goodbye to Tim Keller. In honor of his passing, I am reposting my original tribute to him below. ______________________ By now, you have heard the sad news. Tim Keller has just passed away. I still remember the first time I heard a Tim Keller sermon. It was the mid-90’s, and I happened to be in New York City. Having just graduated from seminary, I had heard all the buzz about this new pastor in Manhattan who had (incredibly) built a thriving, growing church in the midst of one of the world’s most liberal cities. Since it was a Sunday, I figured I … Continue r ..read more

Does it Matter Whether Seminary Education is In-Person or Online?

Ever since I became the president of the Charlotte campus of Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS)—now more than a decade ago—I’ve been committed to a basic practice. It might not seem like much. It’s not anything extraordinary. But I think it has proven to be one of the most meaningful things I do. Here’s my practice: I have a sit-down, face-to-face meeting with every single prospective student that visits our campus. Sure, there are more efficient ways to connect with prospective students. I could dash off an email, or send them a form letter, or point them to the website to learn more. And gi ..read more

Is Marriage a Good Thing?

Marriage has fallen on hard times of late. As of 2020, US News and World Report documented how the US marriage rates have dropped to historic lows. Indeed, since records were kept from the early 1800’s, at no point in our history have people been married so infrequently. But it’s not just declining rates—the people who are getting married are getting married later. Just let these numbers sink in: In 1978, the number of people between 18 and 34 who were married was nearly 60%. As of 2018, that number felt to 29%. Now, it would be all too easy to look at these numbers and declare we just live ..read more

One of the Most Overlooked Arguments for the Resurrection
Canon Fodder
by Michael Kruger
1M ago
Well, soon it will be Easter. That wonderful time of the year when we remember (and celebrate) the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. But, not all will be celebrating. There are many that find Easter to be a senseless holiday—apart from, perhaps, the joys of Sunday brunch or chocolate eggs. After all, it is argued, we all know that people don’t rise from the dead. And there are no reasons to think it happened in the case of Jesus of Nazareth. In response to such skepticism, apologists have been making their best arguments for the resurrection. There’s the empty tomb. There’s the fact that wo ..read more

The Dead Sea Scrolls, the Book of Esther, and the Argument from Silence
Canon Fodder
by Michael Kruger
1M ago
When we want to know how the New Testament canon developed, we have a number of sources at our disposal. Most fundamentally, we have patristic sources—the writings of the church fathers—which can show us when books were known, read, and cited. We also have archaeological evidence at our disposal. We continue to find manuscripts of the New Testament, particularly at the site of Oxyrhynchus among other places, showing that early Christians knew and used these books in some fashion. But what do we do when a particular book is missing from either of these sources? For example, Irenaeus does not me ..read more

Announcing My New Book with Oxford University Press
Canon Fodder
by Michael Kruger
2M ago
Since this blog is primarily designed to put out lay-level content on the origins of the New Testament (among other issues), I don’t normally talk about the more technical scholarly projects I am working on behind the scenes. So, here’s a little update on what I’ve been up to academically. 1. First, I am pleased to announce that I have signed a contract with Oxford University Press for a forthcoming volume entitled, Miniature Codices in Early Christianity. The volume will be appearing in the Oxford Early Christian Studies series. I have been working on the subject of miniature codices for more ..read more
