It was a long time ago – about 2000 years when he came. The world was going on just as before when he began preaching at age 30. He died young, at age 33½, unjustly crucified for deeds he did not commit. He had no family, he personally wrote no books or lessons to be handed down through the ages, yet his life and his death are the most celebrated in all of history. Why? Because he changed human destiny! How could the change have been good, for 2,000 years later the world seems worse off than ever! His actions and teachings in those short 3½ years of preaching were only the beginning, for he started a new cycle in human history, the results of which will be clearly seen and understood in due time. For now, let’s just take some time and honor the life, death and resurrection of Jesus – the son of God and the Savior of men!
For Christians, the concept of salvation is one of the most prominent and necessary beliefs that we hold. Its necessity cannot be understated, for without it, we truly would be lost and miserable. One of the key questions regarding salvation is, who participates? Do you have to be a member of a particular denomination? Do you have to be a member of a particular church? Do you have to be just a Christian? Not even a Christian? We will look into this all important biblical teaching and attempt to ask the tough questions, looking for the best scriptural answers that we can find. Who gets saved?
Sometimes, one life makes all the difference. Sometimes, all it takes is a mission, a lofty mission and a calling – a calling to do that which has never been done before and in so doing the mission is accomplished and the world is changed. Such a life was lived some 2,000 years ago. The mission and the calling compelled that life to change the course of humanity forever. It is this life, this mission and this calling that we honor today – Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior who gave his life so we might have life and is now raised to power on high!
Today is the day – Christians around the world celebrate the single most dramatic event that the world has ever seen, the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This event sealed the destiny of the human race, for it signified the coming death of sin and therefore the coming death of death. On this program, we will walk through the events surrounding this resurrection to better appreciate all of what it stood for: the justice, wisdom, power and love of our Heavenly Father as expressed through the miraculous life of Jesus, the Christ.
The life, death and resurrection of Jesus are the very center of Christianity. The challenge comes when we look at how to apply his sacrifice. Who is covered and who is not? What are the criteria? Is it a denominational thing? Is it a belief thing? Is it a general Christianity thing? Is it an ʺeverybody is includedʺ thing? Stay with us as we carefully delve into the biblical teachings about Jesus, his sacrifice and its meaning.
Throughout history, there have been many whose lives have had a massive impact on their world, for better or for ill. There have been leaders like Mahatma Ghandi, Winston Churchill and Martin Luther King Jr. There have been doctors and scientists like Louis Pasteur, Madame Currie and The Mayo Brothers. There have been inventors like Guttenburg, the Wright Brothers and Thomas Edison. There have been explorers like Louis and Clark and Sir Ernest Shackelton. There have been heroes like Mother Theresa, Jackie Robinson and Harriet Tubman. And there have been those who have overcome unthinkable odds, like Helen Keller and Ludwig Van Bethoven. All of these lives were of great impact and importance. On this program we are going to focus on another life - the life of one man - the man Christ Jesus, whose impact was so great on this world that the full effect of it has not yet been understood, much less felt. Join us as we honor this life and its sacrifices, lived 2000 years ago that forever changed the course of humanity. Jesus Christ – He is Risen!!!
Death and taxes - two sure things in life. Interestingly, we have little control over either. Seeing that this is not a financial program, we won’t talk about taxes - but we will talk about death. Great! What a depressing topic! What is death all about anyway? Do we immediately go somewhere when we die – meaning we actually don’t die, we just change form? Or do we die, cease to exist, when we expire? On this podcast we look at a topic that surely affects us all to determine what the Bible teaches on the subject. Is death the beginning or the end? Lets’ see…
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.
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.
