In this final chapel of Dr. Gerhard Visscher, he mentions to the CRTS community that he started teaching in that week when the twin towers of New York came crashing down. He ends using Zoom because of the threat of Covid-19. In these kind of times, we might wonder about the love and goodness of God. Where is He in all this? While not endorsing all that Miroslav Volf writes, he shows how the writings of this Yale professor are quite helpful for us. We wish Dr. Visscher and his wife Teny the Lord’s blessing as he retires after 19 years of teaching at CRTS and over 40 years of ministry. Have a listen if you like….
So what is the position of our Lord Jesus with respect to children? Is there any support in the gospels for the position that also today children are included in the new covenant? Can we learn anything here that helps us with questions about baptism and how we should view our children?
Are the rest of the New Testament books supportive of the belief that your kids are in the covenant? Texts like Acts 2:39, 1 Cor. 7:14, and Eph. 6:1-4 will be discussed and brought to bear on the larger discussion.
Recorded during the 2015 CRTS Conference. Dr. Visscher examines some of the passages which deal with the doctrine of the new earth. Does the fire described by Peter in 2 Peter 3 eliminate the possibility of a new earth? Just how much can we expect of an eternal physical existence, according to Scripture? He also draws some conclusions regarding the question to what degree a new earth can be part of the believer’s hope and the church’s expectation.
How should the Word of God be interpreted and applied today? In this volume, no less than sixteen Reformed scholars from four different countries join together to tackle the hard questions that often arise when we busy ourselves with the weighty responsibility of interpreting Holy Scripture. As iron sharpens iron, so also these Reformed scholars challenge each other and their readers to ask not only how hermeneutics can be done, but ultimately, how it should be done so that God's Word of Truth may be handled correctly (2 Tim 2:15).

As the vigorous debate over the New Perspective on Paul will only be decided by means of careful consideration of the relevant Scripture passages, this book makes a significant contribution to the discussion. Interpretations by scholars promoting the New Perspective approach are reviewed in detail and contrasted with those of scholars who are critical toward this method. A detailed analysis of the context and exegesis of Romans 4 completes the work. By suggesting a more nuanced exegesis of Romans 4, this book is able to offer a careful critique of the New Perspective while still noting the positive aspects of this approach.

Recorded during Conference 2014: "Correctly Handling the Word of Truth: Reformed Hermeneutics Today."
