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.
On this episode of Twitterology, Jay and Isaac chat with Liz Ditty and Chris Nye about what we should do with the difficult, confusing, and (at least, on the surface) often ugly imagery of the Old Testament? Is it enough to say that in Jesus Christ, the Hebrew Scriptures have been nullified and made void? Does the Old Testament no longer matter in light of the Gospels? And if they do matter, why? And how should we go about reading such ancient texts?
