Ep.449: What Was Jesus’ Family Like?
Refuting the tomb of Jesus “discovery”
Theme Scripture: Matthew 12:48-49
Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Here was a man who lived 2,000 years ago, never had a formal education, never wrote a word about himself or his teachings, never raised an army or lead a revolt – yet he is one of the central figures in human history. Many things have been written about him, ranging from the Bible itself to other “gospels,” to fictional stories all the way up to our present day and the proposed discovery of his tomb. On this podcast we invite two specials guests to help us look at Jesus and focus on his family relationships - what they were and what they meant.
Ep.448: Does God Even Care?
The Virginia Tech shootings
Theme Scripture: 1 Timothy 2:3-4
Just a few short days ago, the unthinkable happened – again. For no sane reason, a 23-year-old young man went on a shooting spree at Virginia Tech University. The results were horrific, as 32 people were gunned down. Words cannot express the sorrow and pain that is a result of this senseless act. Sadly, this is not the first time and likely will not be the last time such an event occurs. Some of the never-ending questions at such times are – where was God? Why did He allow such senseless evil? Couldn’t He have stopped it? Does God even care? Does God even care – this is the question that, if answered, puts the others in perspective. On this podcast we search to see just how much the Almighty does care.
Ep.447: What Do We Need to Know About Angels?
The role of angels in our lives
Theme Scripture: Psalms 91:11
Angels. Are they real? If they are, what do they do – where do they live? Can we communicate with them? SHOULD we communicate with them? There are many questions surrounding these mysterious beings and we are given some answers in the Bible. On this podcast we look at the topic of angels and try to determine what we need to know about these mighty beings, and things we should and should NOT do regarding them. Angels are important – this topic is important, so stay with us as we try and grasp – “what do we need to know about angels?”
Ep.446: What Did the Resurrection Really Accomplish?
The death and resurrection of Jesus
Theme Scripture: John 15:13
Today is the day we celebrate. It is the day set aside to honor the most pivotal events of the most pivotal life ever lived. It is Resurrection Sunday, and all around the world Christians are taking this day and remembering the magnitude of Jesus and his sacrifice. Let us do the same. On this podcast we meditate upon the life and love of our Master, our Lord, our Savior, the Author and Finisher of our Faith, Jesus, the Ransom for all men.
Ep.445: Are Palm Sunday and the Passover Related?
Understanding the type and anti-type relationship
Theme Scripture: 1 Corinthians 5:7
In the worlds of Judaism and Christianity, this is a very special time of year. It is a time when deliverance is celebrated and liberty is proclaimed, for in both faiths events occurred that were both defining and miraculous. For the Jew, the Passover represents the deliverance out of bondage and into a national heritage. For the Christian, the Last Supper and following events represent their deliverance from sin into the liberty of Christ. Is it a coincidence that these two events happen at the same time of year? On this podcast we look into the amazing connection between these events – Palm Sunday and the Lamb, the Passover and the Crucifixion and the deliverance from Egypt and the deliverance from sin.
