If the Bible was written over 2,000 years ago, is it still relevant? How can an ancient book written by ancient authors be authoritative for the church today? In this video interview, Dr. Bill Arnold and Dr. Ben Witherington explain that because the gospel can be contextualized for any situation and any culture, it offers a timeless solution to the basic human problem of sin and alienation from God.
Bill Arnold uses worldview to help get at the translatability of the Bible and the gospel. A worldview seeks to answer at least four basic questions: Where are we? Who are we? What’s gone wrong with the world? Who can fix it? Because the Bible consistently answers this question in the person of Jesus, it remains a gift of God’s divine revelation for the church and world.
