Our friend, Jeannine Brown, says this about herself...
I teach New Testament at Bethel Seminary. I’ve been a part of the faculty at Bethel University since 1995. My areas of interest include biblical hermeneutics, the Gospels and particularly Matthew studies, 1 Peter and issues of contextualization, and integrative work with colleagues in theology and the social sciences, both in the classroom and in collaborative writing.
Jeannine joined us recently to talk about her journey to being an author, New Testament scholar, lover and teacher of Greek, and a seminary professor. Jeannine is brilliant and unassuming, possesses a stroke of genius yet is humble, generous, and kind. She is ultimately curious about the Word of God, and of course, the God of the Word.
If you like thinking about Scripture, with childish wonder and imagination, Jeannine is your scholar! We had a blast talking with her and we know you will love this conversation. This is a long one, because at the end of the episode, I included a 7 minute clip from the cutting room floor, where we talk about the state and future of theological education for both aspiring pastors as well as those already in ministry.
In some ways this is a different kind of episode, and yet it's also what we do week to week - to encourage you in your small church ministry! Enjoy!
