The Anthropic Principle: Humanity at the centre of the universe?

Ron moves on to the topic of cosmology - ie what is the origin of the universe. This is mind boggling stuff and dwarfs the more conventional 'evolution' debates. He explains the anthropic principle that is fast emerging among scientists and which is ironically putting this little old earth back at the centre of attention. He describes the earth as the ark of humanity - a wonder of life in the midst of a barren universe. He contrasts the scientific view of cosmology with the Jewish view. Listen for some of the great discussion here - particularly as we develop the metaphor of the car to explain all of this.

Drama and the humble God

Here is the third talk in our journey through Exodus as an analogy of redemption. In this talk we explore Exodus through the lens of drama. Of course, the whole Bible is in essence a drama in that it is a narrative or story grounded in events rather than abstract ideas.

Salvation as re-creation

In this talk I present Exodus as a 'paradigm' through which we can look at the gospel in broader ways. In this talk I use literary features to the Exodus event - and how it is handled by the prophets much later in the OT.

The gospel according to Exodus

These talks explore difficulties in the traditional ‘Penal Substitution Model’ but in a sense they left us with a void – what can replace the Penal model. We look to the Exodus narrative for broader alternatives.
