Baptism can be a controversial subject in the church–but there’s one aspect of it that isn’t up for debate. Jesus was baptized! Join us as we discuss this beautiful story when Jesus was baptized to begin his ministry.
He wouldn’t last long at most churches. He wore camel’s hair and liked to snack on locust. John the Baptist was a unique man who prepared the way for someone even more unique–the only begotten son of God!
Join us as we discuss the early ministry of John, and marvel as he points us to Jesus!
Every parent would like to know: what was Jesus like as a teenager? Scripture only gives us one glimpse of Jesus between infancy an adulthood. He’s twelve years old, he’s at the temple. When his mom asks why he worried them so, his only answer was, “Don’t you know I must be about my Father’s business?” (Luke 2:49)
Join host Richie G, Richard, Howard, and Matthew as we discuss the story of young Jesus at the temple.
Who would you announce a king’s birth to? CNN? NBC? How about some smelly, nomadic shepherds who haven’t slept indoors this year?
Listen as we continue looking at the unusual and compelling story–the birth of Jesus.
There’s no story quite like the story of the birth of Jesus. Spoiler alert: we enjoyed the conversation so much, we got carried away. This will be a two-part episode.
Join us as we talk about the wise men and Herod as we tell the story of the beautiful birth of the Messiah.
Elizabeth. Zachariah. Mary. Joseph. They were good people. They lived ordinary lives in their times.
Can you imagine what it was like to have an angel interrupt and turn the ordinary in to extraordinary?A barren old woman finds out she’s pregnant. A man finds out his bride-elect is expecting, and he’s not the dad. A priest sees God’s angel–in the temple–and doesn’t believe!
This week join Richie G, Richard R, and Matthew as we study the annunciation in Matthew 1 and Luke 1-2.
You’ve heard us mention the study guide on the show. Don’t worry! It’s on its way! Soon we will have a link for you to read each week’s lesson text and answer some questions.
Prediction is very hard. Especially about the future.
That’s what makes the predictions we find in the Hebrew Bible about Jesus so impressive. The quantity is staggering; there are hundreds! The quality is even more impressive: many were out of Jesus’ hands, so to speak. For instance, he had no control over where he was born.
This week’s episode takes a look at the scriptures that predicted the coming of Jesus. Join Richie G, Richard R, and Matthew as we consider the prophecies that predicted Jesus.
The Bible begins with the phrase, “in the beginning.” The gospel of John begins the same way.
This week’s show takes place before that–before the beginning. Jesus existed before the foundation of the world. It’s hard enough for us to grasp the endless nature of time. How much more so the beginning-less nature of it!
Join Richie G, Richard R., and Matthew H as we discuss Jesus–before the beginning.
The fourth gopsel: John.
It’s the odd man out, the strange one in the group. Matthew, Mark, and Luke write so similarly that we call them the synoptics (“same” + “view”). John gives us a totally different perspective on the life of Jesus. He assumes that you know all about what Matthew and Mark and Luke had to say.
John makes the unbelievable become undeniable. He writes so that we might have life! Listen in with Richie G., Richard R., and Matthew H. as we discuss this life-giving gospel!
