The Jordan Peterson threads have me scurrying to catch up with the community as I am not familiar enough with him to add anything to the conversation. I googled him to get some back ground on him and some idea what all the hubbub is about.
I read a blog written by a Canadian student who made a point of going to one of his events and interviewed Christians asking why they were attending and what did they hope to gain, several answers were given but the one stood out to me was “he’ll blow your mind with his in-depth knowledge of the Bible.” Now I have no idea what Jordan Peterson’s biblical knowledge is, but I couldn’t help but wonder what does “in depth Bible knowledge” mean you?
Does it mean quoting verse at will, the ability to apply verse to real life, knowledge of the original language(s), cultural or historical accuracy, exegetical and hermeneutical chops?
I would be interested to hear from you.
