I have always veered away from discussing politics on this blog, and will continue to do so. I did want to draw my readers’ attention to a fine post today on Scot McKnight’s Jesus Creed blog. Scot discusses the implications of the Bible for the most current round of volatility in the Middle East. This discussion centers around four theses put forth by author John Goldingay in his book Key Questions about Christian Faith: Old Testament Answers.

I won’t go into further detail here other than to say that as I commented on Scot’s post, as a Jewish follower of Jesus I am in agreement with some of Goldingay’s theses and troubled by others. If this is a topic of interest to you – and I pray that it is! – you can read the original post here.
