Every year, Kuyper College has an annual Faculty and Alumni Scholar Day, where faculty and alumni give presentations based on scholarly work they've done. In April, Calvin Theological Journal published an article I wrote entitled, "Hair Length and Human Sexuality: The Underlying Moral Logic of Paul's Appeal to Nature in 1 Corinthians 11:14." You can find the article here or you can watch the video below, which is a summary of key points from the article. I thoroughly enjoyed researching this article, as it brought together several strands of teaching and research interests, including hermeneutics, ancient philosophy, and sexual ethics. And although the question of the morality of hair length for men and women may not be much of an issue in many Christian circles, the question of how to understand "nature" and Paul's use of it in 1 Corinthians 11 and Romans 1 is directly connected to current discussions of same-sex relationships.
About the blog
My thoughts on how following Jesus calls us to go with the grain of the universe and against the grain of the world. I love the Bible, theology, and philosophy and how they intersect with just about anything else.
