I was planning on writing some thoughts about “The Gospel”, as part of my “Missional Church in a Post-Modern Context” project, but I think it would be more useful to first write a few about the Gospels – i.e. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. This is something that both Scot McKnight and Tom Wright emphasise in their recent works.
I have been really inspired lately by Mike Todd’s work in http://miketodd.typepad.com/waving_or_drowning/ and so I’ll probably do some stuff that dialogues with his excellent takes on the Parable of the Talents in Mt 25 and also the pericope of the Rich Young Ruler in Mt 19, Mk 10 and Lk 18.
But first I’m going to start with a series on a parable I have done some work on – sometimes named the Shrewd Manager in Luke 16. It will probably take about 7 posts so lets see how we go.
