About This Episode
The rise of social media has created a whole new way to share and engage ideas. While this is often helpful, it can also have some really negative effects. In particular, when it comes to the formation of our theological ideas, our understanding of who God is and what he's up to, and our perspective on the local church and her mission in the world, twitter and other social media platforms have created some confusing, even harmful, caricatures.
In this second episode of Twitterology, Jay and Isaac chat with Liz Ditty and Chris Nye about the very tweetable idea that when the Bible becomes difficult or confusing, we should simply "Just Read Jesus." Is this true? Is it enough to just read the direct words of Jesus in the Gospels? Are the "red letter words" of the Bible the only words that truly matter? What are we to make of the over sixty other books of the Bible that do not include the direct words of Jesus?
