Walter Brueggemann

Author and Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann will be teaching tonight at Mount Vernon Nazarene University @ 7:30 p.m. in the R.R. Hodges Chapel Auditorium. For all friends and acquaintances we will be gathering in our apartment (Oakwood Hall RD Apt.) immediately following the lecture for coffee, tea, and something else equally arbitrary.

yes. there should be a podcast so long as senior brueggemann signed the release form. i highly encourage you to check it out. it was a very enjoyable lecture. i will post a link once it is posted.

If they do podcast it, they will probably bleep out the word "bitch", as well as the name "Karl Marx", and that whole part where he compared the regime of Pharaoh and the regime of Rome, with the regime of our White House and Military. In fact, it might sound more like a hearing test.

Matthew 5:38-48, NASB

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone want to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only you brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
