Rank #1: Hard Verses: Violent Retribution and Anachronistic Customs in Scripture, Genesis 34 and 1 Corinthians 11

Podcast cover
Read more

Marcus Grodi looks at a violent event in the Old Testament and an example of a now seemingly outmoded and largely abandoned custom regarding head coverings found in the New. What are we as Christians to make of such apparent anachronisms? Is the decision about whether and how to apply such scriptures a matter for individual interpretation or not? We’ll explore this today on Deep in Scripture!

Rank #5: Chain Reference Bible Study & Paul's Reasons For Writing, Romans 15:14-33

Podcast cover
Read more
In this section, St Paul moves on from deeper theological and ethical teachings to discuss why he has written so boldly to the Roman Christians, why he has not visited them, but why now he plans to do so. In these verses, we hear allusions to the power of the mysteries, or the sacraments as they will be called: to the changes that he as a bishop can assume are true in the lives of all baptized Christians; to his responsibilities as an “ordained” missionary bishop; and to the liturgical sacrifices of the Eucharist. Paul confesses that all that he has written them and all that he has accomplished throughout his missionary journeys is not the result of his own efforts, but what Christ has wrought through him. He is merely seeking to be obedient to Christ and his calling, and this will now mean, God willing, taking the gospel to the ends of the earth.

Email: Dear Marcus and Ken, an Evangelical friend of mine studies his Bible every day, using a chain reference technique. He goes from one verse to the next following references in his chain Bible. Is this a valid trustworthy way of studying God’s Word? Thanks, Sam

A few key points for today's discussion:1) This is Paul's Theodicy—i.e. his justification of the ways of God. 2) His purpose is to explain the ways of God in allowing the Gentiles to share in the Jews' privileges of the Covenant.3) The text never says that God predestines people to damnation.

Rank #8: What Does it Mean to be "Partakers in the Divine Nature?" 2 Peter 1:4 - Carl Olson - Deep in Scripture

Podcast cover
Read more

Carl Olson, Editor of Catholic World Report for Ignatius Press, joins Marcus Grodi to discuss 2 Peter 1:2-4, where St. Peter talks about the idea of becoming partakers in Jesus' divine nature.  How, exactly, is this supposed to work?  Are we invited to become 'gods' ourselves?  Certainly Mormon theologians would argue for this perspective.   Does it mean we will eventually be absorbed into the Godhead, as is taught in Buddhism?  Or is something else meant by what the Church Fathers refer to as "divinization?"

Rank #9: Question About the "Pillar & Bullwark" and Romans 12:9-21

Podcast cover
Read more

Email: Mr. Grodi, I have heard you quip many times & in your books that when Scripture says (1 Tim 3:15) that the pillar and bulwark of the truth is the Church, Jesus could not have meant the thousands of denominations divided by contrary interpretations of Scripture we now have in our world, for how could an invisible church of faithful believers be the pillar and bulwark of anything? This may sound reasonable, but if this seeming disunited diversity is contrary to God’s will, then why does God continue to bless hundreds of thousands of non-Catholic Christians? Why does He continue to use these non-Catholic Christian traditions to inspire and evangelize thousands of people every year around the globe out of darkness, into faith in Jesus Christ, away from sin, into prayerful, devotional lives, and even out of secular lives into lives dedicated to ministry? With so few people worldwide converting to the Catholic Church, it appears God is quite willing to work with a universal invisible church just as it is? Thank you, Aran.

Rank #10: "Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed", Romans 12:1-8

Podcast cover
Read more

Some key points in today’s passage:

  • (vs. 1) The idea of “sacrifice” is still very much an important aspect of our Christian faith;
  • (vs. 1) Our entire person—body and soul—is our personal share in the daily sacrifice of the Body of Christ; “what we do in the body” daily, as St. Paul say elsewhere, is how we “suffer with Christ”; (Col 1:24; Rom 8:17; Phil 1:29);
  • (vs. 2) This requires a transformed state of mind, living out the Our Father;
  • (vs. 2) By doing this, our conscience is formed by the indwelling Holy Spirit;
  • (vs. 3-5) Behind these verses, is St. Paul assumption of the Mystical Body of Christ: through baptism believers become united with Christ and one another in the Church;
  • (vs. 3-5) Living together in the Body requires living out the Beatitudes: detachment from world, sin, self;
  • (vs. 6-8) This also requires that we recognize the importance of being a faithful individual in the Body of Christ, yet using our individual gifts to work together for the building up of the Body (Eph 4)

Email: Dear Ken & Marcus, last week you discussed Rom 12:2, “Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” In your discussion you didn’t address what Paul meant by being able to “prove” “what is the will of God, and “what is good and acceptable and perfect.” This term, “prove”, would seem to imply that this process would help one “know” clearly what God’s will is. Yet, in my experience, I’ve known many many faithful Christians—Catholic or non—who have dedicated their lives to doing this very thing, yet they can’t seem to agree on what God’s will is for lots of things. What does Paul mean here?

Rank #13: The Christian and the Governing Authorities, Romans 13:1-14 Continued

Podcast cover
Read more
In Romans 12:1,2, St Paul calls Christians to continue their conversion by transforming their minds—and not conforming to the world, or the culture around them. In chapter 14 we see that this involves trusting that God is in control of our Country, our government, and its leaders, to whom we are to submit. But what if the laws they have passed are contradictory to the moral laws of our faith? Must we submit? This is part of what we discuss today on DIS.

EMAIL:

Dear Ken and Marcus, how do you juxtapose these exhortations by Saint Paul with the fact that many of the earliest Christian martyrs, whom we are called to emulate and honor, died specifically because they were refusing to be subject to Rome? Thanks, Steve.

Rank #16: The Eucharist and the Early Christian Fathers

Podcast cover
Read more
Communion, Lord’s Supper, Eucharist are titles given to a sacrament, ordinance, or rite celebrated by Christians around the world. The origin of this act of worship comes from the institution of Jesus Christ, but the meaning and practice have a long and broad history, leading to, as we all know, a wide breadth of opinions and consequent division. The best place to begin to understand this great sacrament is with the witness of the earliest Christians, which is what we will do today on Deep In Scripture.

Rank #18: 2 Timothy 3:17 and Sola Scriptura – Deep in Scripture

Podcast cover
Read more
The Apostle Paul once wrote to his fellow bishop and son in the faith Timothy, that “all scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching for reproof for correction and for training in righteousness that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” This verse from 2 Timothy is the primary verse used to defend the doctrine of Sola Scriptura. This is precisely what my guest and I did for many years. But does this verse teach Sola Scriptura? What does it say about the Bible we hold in our hands and which we consider so foundational to our faith now nearly 2000 years later? This is what we’ll be discussing today on Deep in Scripture.

Fresh off their recent pilgrimage to Italy, and with the recent canonization of St. John Henry Cardinal Newman, Marcus Grodi and Ken Hensley reflect on the mystery of grace, and why some people respond, and some don't. Looking at the particular case of the Rich Young Ruler, which appears in three Gospels, they unpack the question of how Jesus challenges us all in ways unique to our specific state of life, and the urgent need to respond to God's grace.

Rank #20: The Catholic Church and the "Mystical Body of Christ", Romans 8:1-11

Podcast cover
Read more
Today on Deep in Scripture Marcus and Ken discuss a fine email concerning the relationship between the Mystical Body of Christ and the Catholic Church. They go on to examine Romans 8:1-11. In 6, Paul emphasized that anyone in Christ through baptism has been freed from death and slavery to sin. Then in chapter 7, Paul gives a candid personal testimony of his own struggle against temptation and sin—even though he has been united with Christ through baptism. He ends chapter 7 with a testimony that the only answer to the continuing struggle is Jesus. Then in chapter 8, he picks up again what he had summarized in chapter 6: there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ (through baptism), and who remain in Christ by walking / living by the Spirit who dwells within them—by setting our minds on the Spirit.
