Articles by Dr. Rob Plummer:

  • Righteousness and Peace Kiss: The Reconciliation of Authorial Intent and Biblical TypologyAs we approach some difficult Old Testament quotations in the New Testament, we can ask, “Is the use of this Old Testament text by a New Testament author best explained by author-oriented hermeneutics?” Many will answer yes. We can ask of the same text then, “Is this text best explained by typological interpretation?” And others will answer, “Yes, typology, is the best approach.” I am proposing that maybe we can answer yes to both of those questions and end up being more faithful interpreters in the process.
  • The Great Commission in the New Testament
    In this article, our goal is to survey the theme of the Great Commission in the New Testament. While the phrase “Great Commission” is often applied to Jesus’ specific command to make disciples in Matt 28:19, in this chapter, we will use the term “Great Commission” more generally to mean all those passages which contain explicit or implicit commissions to evangelize. In other words, we will be asking: What does the New Testament teach about Christians’ obligation to share the gospel with non-believers?
  • Parables in the Gospels: History of Interpretation and Hermeneutical Guidelines
    About one-third of Jesus’ teaching is in parables. So influential are these parables that even people who have never read the Bible use expressions drawn from them (e.g.,“the good Samaritan” or “the prodigal Son”). Though widely known, Jesus’ parables are also notorious for their frequent misinterpretation. In this article, I will begin by defining “parable” and giving a brief historical survey of how the parables have been interpreted. Then, in the second half of the article, I will offer some guidelines for properly interpreting parables.
  • Are the Spiritual Disciplines of “Silence and Solitude” Really Biblical?
    Much recent Christian literature on spiritual disciplines advocates the practices of “silence and solitude” (e.g., Invitation to Solitude and Silence, by Ruth Haley Barton, InterVarsity, 2004). Scriptural precedents for solitude and silence are given from both Old and New Testament texts (e.g.,1 Kgs 19; Mark 1:35). Such texts, however, usually come from narrative portions of Scripture, and little thought has gone into determining whether the patterns described are normative. Furthermore, other portions of Scripture that seem to speak in a praise-worthy way about a biblical figure’s lack of solitude and silence go ignored (e.g., Mark 6:32-34;2 Cor 11:26-27).
  • Eating Idol Meat in Corinth: Enduring Principles from Paul’s Instructions
    Are the apostle Paul’s instructions about eating meat sacrificed to idols relevant today? The purpose of this article is to explain this portion of Paul’s letter and to highlight the implications of Paul’s teaching for modern Christian ministry.
  • Bring Them Up in the Discipline and Instruction of the Lord
    “It’s Sunday Schools!” he told me. “They’ve destroyed the faith of children!” Such was the assertion made to me by a father in San Antonio. Over a plate of Italian food, this man proceeded to g ov€er a brief historical sketch of what he saw as the systematic removal of parental responsibility for the discipleship of children is happened, he believed, because
    churches have institutionalized children’s programming…
  • Something Awry In The Temple? The Rending Of The Temple Veil And Early Jewish Sources That Report Unusual Phenomena In The Temple Around AD 30
    When Jesus died on the cross, the Gospels report that the veil of the temple was torn in half (Matt 27:51; Mark 15:38; Luke 23:45). While believing Christians take on faith that this event actually happened, can extra-biblical confirmation also be given for the incident?

    Did Paul want the churches he founded to engage in active missionary work?
