Editor’s Preface -- By: David E. Lanier
The summer edition of Faith and Mission is often dedicated to the work of students, whether at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary or Southeastern College at Wake Forest. This edition is no exception, with three contributions from students concerning proper hermeneutics. However, several of our contributors are teachers dealing with how we should educate and how we should be proper stewards of all that God has given to us.
The first submission is Ken Coley’s faculty lecture from 2006 entitled, “Pastor, How Should I Educate My Children?” It deals with the proper discipleship of children, a task God has given to parents, not churches or institutions. Second is Vincent Greene’s “Is Mark’s Gospel Offensive?” a timely look at hermeneutical and exegetical issues in the Gospel of Mark.
Next in the lineup is Lance Beauchamp’s “The Old and New Man in Eph. 4:17-24,” dealing with proper interpretation of New Testament Scripture. Keith Campbell deals with balancing Old and New Testament teachings in “Matthew’s Hermeneutic of Psalm 22:1 and Jer. 31:15,” for many a problem passage. Finally, Russell Woodbridge examines proper Christian stewardship in “Stewardship and the Divine Economy.” May God most richly bless the study and application of His precious Word.
