It is hard to believe but this is RBTR’s 10th issue. We trust the positive feedback we’ve received will continue as we embark upon our 11th issue in early 2009.
Our first article is an exposition and application of John 15:1-11 by Dr. Robert P. Martin. We trust it will be edifying and challenging.
Our second article was written by a student of mine, Michael Emadi. It is an exegesis of Romans 1:1-7 with special emphasis on Paul’s doxological Christology. You will find his conclusion very much in line with Vos and Murray on this text. As his professor, this made me very happy.
Dr. Robert Gonzales offers us another well-researched article entitled “Man: God’s Visible Replica and Vice-Regent.” Bob surveys the common views, offers some exegesis and theological reflection, and closes with practical application. This article should stimulate fruitful thinking on this important subject.
The last article is an edited version of a section of my doctoral dissertation. It is an examination of seventeenth-century Reformed orthodoxy, theological methodology, John Owen, and federal theology. It is hoped that readers of RBTR interested in the seventeenth century and federalism will find this article helpful.
Once again, it is our privilege to serve you through RBTR.
