Today’s guest is the Senior Pastor of Sanctus Church, Rev. Dr. Jon Thompson and we will be discussing how he approaches Scripture as someone who is known for his preaching. What is the difference between preparing Scripture to teach versus for our own personal reading? In this episode we also discuss how to untangle difficult passages for ourselves, and what to do when we change our minds, or disagree with other Christians on a theological issue.
