Biblical Genre and Relational Truths

In this video, video, theologian Chris Tilling, New Testament Tutor for St. Mellitus College and St Paul's Theological Centre in London, discusses biblical genre and the relational truth of Scripture.

Harvey Clemons Jr., Reverend at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church

The amazing planet on which we live and the vast world we seek to understand as people of faith compels us to search for the majesty of our Creator and His Creation. I am humbled and honored to journey with BioLogos as it creates a safe atmosphere to pursue probing and intellectual conversations while holding to our faith and confidence in God the Creator, Christ the Savior and His guiding Spirit.
