  1. Hi. I'm considering purchasing Bishop Wright's commentaries on the New Testament. What is the difference between "N.T. Wright for Everyone" book series and "New Testament For Everyone" book series?

  2. Just found this channel, but have been enjoying your writings for a while. I am studying justification. It seems your way of taking it must be right. In my opinion any other way, makes a "thing" or substance called rightness, or holiness somehow infused. But these are not material terms, so that God does not,, or cannot by FIAT make you Holy. It seems justification is that initial declaration based on covenant, to make the world right in Jesus. Then from there the Lord works in and with us for this " moral " sanctification" I suppose I want to ask if you agree that one of the roots of the problem for not seeing your perspective, is that "they" see sin as an "actual substance" reincarnated in flesh, ( instead of a true moral rebellion from a knowledgeable agent) that must be eradicated by a substance from Jesus called righteousness.
