Naked Bible 38: Acts 2:22-41 – The Naked Bible Podcast

Acts 2:22-41

This episode will focus on two items of biblical theology that are controversial in biblical study:

How the New Testament writers / apostles quoted the Old Testament

The meaning of Acts 2:38

Of the two, the second is more familiar to Christians due to denominational debates about baptism. Acts 2:38 needs to be interpreted in light of the new covenant context that Luke has been framing since early in Chapter 1 and that we’ve been talking about in the preceding episodes.

The first issue is less known because many Bible readers never bother to compare what they read in the New Testament to the Old Testament, even when Old Testament passages are being quoted. Neglecting this simple exercise stunts one’s understanding of biblical theology, and leads to interpretations that are often out of context and idiosyncratic.
