Biblical Interpretation and Church Offense

 “There is nothing, nothing harder to do in my life than church.” Dean Taylor responds to audience comments on deep disappointment with Anabaptism and on difficulties in understanding the Bible due to textual complications and lack of historical context. We will often be surprised at the results if we are willing to be humbly and honestly up front with our church leaders. Dean also argues for the trustworthiness of what is known as the “Majority Text” or “Byzantine Text” of the New Testament. 

These comments came in response to the inaugural episode of Anabaptist Perspectives The Essence of Anabaptism.

In a previous episode Dean responded to questions about Baptism, Communion, and taking the Bible straightforwardly.
