Spring 2023 Midwestern Journal of Theology

We’re excited to bring you the Fall 2023 issue of the Midwestern Journal of Theology. It is a joy and privilege to note that the articles in this issue have all been contributed or co-written by teachers at Midwestern. From substantive interactions with C.S. Lewis and Carl F. H. Henry to biblical interpretation of texts such as Zephaniah 1 and Mark 6, the issue of the Midwestern Journal of Theology seeks to provide a point of interest for any individual in the Midwestern Seminary community.

The opening article features four seminary faculty members engaging with C.S. Lewis’ work, The Abolition of Man. Next, the MJT included a substantive article from Jason DeRouchie, research professor of Old Testament and biblical theology at Midwestern Seminary, titled, “Confronting Idolatry in Zephaniah 1:4-6 and in the Twenty-First Century.” Tyler Sykora, assistant professor of biblical studies at Midwestern Seminary, contributed the third article of the Journal, “Our Understanding of the Disciples’ Misunderstanding is Incomplete: Mark 6:48-50 from a Greco-Roman Perspective.” The fourth article this edition comes from David Paul, who currently serves as a missionary with the International Mission Board. His article is titled “Validating Pauline Emulation as a Missiological Hermeneutic in Second Timothy.” The final article featured Taylor Lassiter, senior pastor of College Heights Baptist Church, with his article, “Kingdom Conversion, Kingdom Causes, and Kingdom Agents: The Missiology of Carl F. H. Henry.”
