Approach God’s design for marriage thoughtfully

Sean McDowell and John Stonestreet believe a thoughtful approach to God’s design for marriage is the answer to both questions. The key is not a contentious attitude toward those who believe in same-sex marriage, but a winsome perspective that is faithful to Christ, committed to truth, and shaped by a love for God and others. Christians need to know that because Christ has risen, all hope is not lost. They are still called to engage culture— even if they view other people’s beliefs as wrong, illegal, or intolerant.

Interested in studying the original Greek?

The history of the Greek text of the New Testament reads like an adventure novel. From the original composition of these texts to the present day, they have been perpetually copied, heavily utilized, beautifully illustrated, secretly hidden, burned, buried, translated, printed, and analyzed.

Studying the original language of the New Testament can bring deeper meaning to the words that we read today. We’ve developed a guide to help you learn about critical texts, codices, manuscripts, and other Greek texts, and which might be most suited for your study. Study the original Greek just like Dr. Runge for more profound insights into the Word of God.
