A Biblical Theology of Sports

The Apostle Paul often used athletic imagery to convey biblical truth (cf. 1 Cor. 9:24-27; 1 Tim. 4:7-8; 2 Tim. 2:5).  This week on the CBMW blog, Randy Stinson, Dean of the School of Leadership and Church Ministry at Southern Seminary and President of the Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, has followed the apostles lead.  As a sports enthusiast, Stinson champions the use of athletics to foster biblical masculinity in the lives of his boys, and he shows how baseball is a game that teaches biblical principles.  As a father-to-be, this kind of instruction speaks volumes, and will surely be put to use in the years to come.

  1. Here is a link to a project that will be a series of hour long interviews fully based on the writings of the first century Apostles.

    Imagine if our twenty first century broadcast media technology was available in the first century reporting on the events and famous people of the day. Herein is the concept. A modern style in-depth interview of the first Apostles. The interview will allow the Apostles to speak the doctrine they wrote for the viewer to hear first hand.

    The first interview is with the incarcerated Paul and conducted by Josephus, a secular historian of the day known by Paul.
