This lecture was given as part of the Regent College Convocation & Open House Weekend 2013. When people talk of "sacrament," we usually think Baptism or Communion - and rightly so. But in this lecture, Hans Boersma shows that Scripture too is meant to function like a sacrament. This claim is chock full of implications for how we read the Bible.
