A125: Easter 4 – Imitating Christ with Mike Bird (1 Peter 2:19-25, Ps 23, John 10)

00:00 / 00:30:38

Michael Bird joins the podcast to discuss how he approaches preaching, the image of the Good Shepherd (Ps 23, John 10), the utopian vision of Acts 2, and what we do with the teaching addressed to slaves in 1 Peter 2:18-25.  We explore Peter’s teaching on not retaliating, non-violence, and imitating Christ.

Mike blogs at Euangelion and his most recent book, co-authored with N.T.Wright, is The New Testament in its World. We refer to Dennis Edwards’ 1 Peter Commentary.
