This week, the Evangelical Theological Society is meeting in Providence, Rhode Island. Later today, I will be presenting a paper titled, “The Milk of the Word: Defending a Historic Interpretation of 1 Peter 2:1–3.” In sum, I am making a case against recent arguments that the analogy of milk in 1 Peter 2 does not refer to the Word of God. I believe there are good contextual and lexical reasons to believe the analogy refers to the Word, and I seek to show that contextual and lexical arguments to the contrary are not sufficient.
I am keeping the link below live for the next day or so, but I will soon pull it down in hopes of having the article published.
