The Big Picture 73: Don’t Lose Heart and Don’t “Knock It Off”

[display_podcast]Pastor Andy Stanley says we’re scaring the children. But should they be scared? And just who are these frightened children he’s so concerned about?I’m Joel Fieri and this is The Big Picture podcast, where we try our best to separate the forest from the trees amidst the uncertainty of today’s Church and greater society.This is part two of my reaction to the viral video released from Pastor Andy Stanley’s ministry in which he called on those “over 45” in his church (and … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 154: The Parable of the Despised Samaritan

[display_podcast]It’s universally called “The Parable of the Good Samaritan.”Universally, that is, except where Jesus is concerned.As you will hear in this PODCAST, if Luke 10:33 in the NLT is any indication, Jesus would have most likely entitled this, “The Parable of the Despised Samaritan.”A title which goes to the heart of this story, really.Something that I need for you to feel as you listen, and to feel it deeply. For if not, this parable completely loses its punch.Fo … [Read more...]

Inside Islam: Jesus’ Deity, Death and Resurrection with Nabeel Qureshi

To purchase the entire DVD set of the Summit Lecture Series, visit summit.org.Now, remember that Muslims believe that the Gospels are the inspired word of God. They refer to the story of Jesus Christ as the Injil, and it is one of the four Islamic holy books. And, when we take a look at what Jesus said and did, as well as what others said about Him and how they reacted to Him, it becomes very clear that Jesus did claim to be God.In Mark 14:62, the Jewish High Priest asks Jesus, “Are you t … [Read more...]

Summit Lecture Series: Who Is Jesus Christ, According to Islam? with Nabeel Qureshi

Christianity and Islam have one central pivot point. That is the person of Jesus.Islam says you can believe all the things that the Bible says about Christ: He performed miracles, He’s a prophet, He’s the Messiah, He was virgin-born, and is coming at the end of days.However, Muslims cannot believe that Jesus died on the cross as stated in Surah 4:157, “And because of their saying: we slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appe … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 153: The Stage is Set!

[display_podcast]Jesus was happy. Truly, genuinely happy.Which, if you think about it, and as you will hear in this PODCAST, is a most remarkable statement.As you know, and as we have chronicled over the now 3½ years of this Jesus in High Definition study, Jesus was (to quote Isaiah): "despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief."Never will that become so heartrendingly obvious as in the days immediately preceding His crucifixion. You want to talk abou … [Read more...]
