[display_podcast] When we last left our old friend, John the Baptizer, his faith was in a free-fall. He was here last week, sort of, to tell you his scintillating story in his own words. (If you have not heard that PODCAST, may I respectfully request that you listen? A story that I promise you, you will never forget.) Think of it. John… The man whose coming was predicted by the prophets… Whose birth was foretold by an angel… Who identified and introduced Jesus to the world… John the Baptizer … [Read more...]

Ouxano Thumbnail

[display_podcast] 1 Samuel 7:1-2So the men of Kiriath-jearim came to get the Ark of the Lord. They took it to the hillside home of Abinadab and ordained Eleazar, his son, to be in charge of it. 2 The Ark remained in Kiriath-jearim for a long time—twenty years in all. During that time all Israel mourned because it seemed the Lord had abandoned them. This process of Israel mourning began all the way back in chapter four, when they were relying on gimmicks and trickery to win a battle “in the … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] The fifth chapter of 1 Samuel focuses largely on the Philistines.  Now, as we study the Bible, we see the Philistines as an enemy of God’s people – a group of people God and Israel deal with on a regular basis.  However, too often, 21st century Christians fall into the trap of looking at these scriptures and interpreting them to mean that the “Philistines” of today’s world are anything secular, or outside of Christianity – that “the world” are the “bad people” that need to be s … [Read more...]

[display_podcast]One of the most-taught stories in children’s Sunday School classes over the last several decades is that of the Lord calling out to little Samuel: 2 One night Eli, who was almost blind by now, had gone to bed. 3 The lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was sleeping in the Tabernacle near the Ark of God. 4 Suddenly the Lord called out, “Samuel!”“Yes?” Samuel replied. “What is it?” 5 He got up and ran to Eli. “Here I am. Did you call me?”“I didn’t call you,” El … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 75: Jesus’ Mind-Blowing Climax to His Signature Sermon

Jesus in HD Thumbnail

[display_podcast] They say that confession is good for the soul. So here goes: I confess that I'm feeling terribly conflicted about the passage we discuss in this PODCAST. On the one hand, this is as sober and serious as it gets, Jesus' climax to His signature sermon. Yet on the other hand, I find myself strangely comforted by His words. Comforted because they explain SO MUCH of what we see done today in Jesus' name. You see, Jesus said this at the end of His Sermon on the Mount: 21 “Not eve … [Read more...]
