Key Questions Is the Bible media savvy? Is Christian theology media competent? Does the Bible need an ‘upgrade’?
Not an Upgrade... But Hermeneutics
My Arguments 1] God himself uses media, "TheoMedia"—means through which he reveals himself and communicates with us. And if God uses media, then there is a theological logic by which we can understand and use media today.

OT TheoMedia | Overview and Assessments What can we say about the media of God in the OT? How does God’s use of TheoMedia inform our understanding of digital culture?
OT TheoMedia | Overview and Assessments In his communicative and revelatory activity, our God is a multimedia God. He appeals to the entire “sensorium” Word-media is often prioritized. Our most fundamental vocation as humans is a media vocation, that of divine image-bearing.
Media Christology 1] Jesus is the consummate TheoMedium, the ultimate revelation of God: “The Word became flesh…. No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son... who has made him known” (Jn 1:18).
Media Christology 2] Jesus is the “Multimedium of God”: We declare to you what was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the word of life—this life was revealed, and we have seen it and testify to it, and declare to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was revealed to us— we declare to you what we have seen and heard... (1 Jn 1:1– 3a).
Media Christology Gospel | “Eucatastrophic” Newsflash Incarnation | Christ as Ultimate TheoMedium Crucifixion | The Sights and Sounds of God Crucified Resurrection and Ascension | Physical Absence... yet the Holy Spirit’s Presence Return | Apocalyptic Hermeneutics and the New Sensorium
Media Legacies of Christ Gospel — Preaching Incarnation — Face to face; entering the digital environment Crucifixion — Cross-Visuality; Eucharist; selfless online interaction Resurrection — “Hopeful Realism”— hermeneutical lens; Baptism Ascension — Spiritual Gifts; Spiritual Disciplines Return — Seeing thru the News; Easing the tensions in the church’s sensory regimes
“EcclesioMedia” Focal Media Practices of the Church Church: The Primary Media Domain of God But do our 1st century media forms still work? Is the church in need of an upgrade?
Preaching in the 21st Century Preaching is a media form externally sourced. It is the communication and revelation of God through the agency of a divine image-bearer.
