Kloha / Montgomery Debate Video


Dr. John Warwick Montgomery, Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy at Concordia University Wisconsin and Dr. Jeffrey John Kloha, Provost and Professor of Exegetical Theology at Concordia Seminary, Saint Louis, conducted a debate about the philosophies of Biblical textual criticism on Saturday, October 15th, 2016 at Concordia University-Chicago in River Forest, Illinois.

The title of the debate is: “Textual and Literary Judgments on the Biblical Text – What Happens to the Lutheran Commitment to Scriptural Inerrancy?


After a few attempts of trying to get an edited version of this video prepared; I’ve decided to simply upload the original for now. Having it available on Youtube rather than having to go to Livestream to get it makes it available to more of our readers.

The presentation starts about 33 minutes into the recording; you can skip forward to that to start at the introductions. The actual presentations (after opening remarks by the various sponsoring agencies) is found at the 52 minute mark.



As time permits I’ll continue working on attempting to get an edited version available.


We have now received a DVD from Concordia University’s media production department; it’s available here:

It should be the same as the above video with the exception that the stutter that happened in the livestream after 2 hours in should be corrected.

Dr. Kloha’s presentation starts about 20 minutes into this second video.
