We always get it backwards. We take a word we know, and when the Bible uses that same word to describe God, we think we know what it means. But what if that isn’t how it works at all? What if that approach sends you on a wild goose chase straight in to idolatry?
Jesus is the ultimate teacher. His disciples learn from Him and speak as He did. Nathanael reminds us of Jacob. But better. And Jesus explains that He is the God who was seen in the OT.
How can we say that you can be assured of your salvation while at the same time saying that you can lose your salvation? This is a contradiction. How do we resolve it?
This week we discuss the baptism of Jesus and who you can trust to tell you the truth about Jesus.
There are many ways to talk about baptism. Some good, some bad and some downright awkward. And then there are the times we speak of baptism in a way that not even Scripture speaks.
John the Baptist faithfully witnessed to Christ. He is the one foretold in Isaiah 40:3 and Malachi 3:1. But Jesus is the fulfillment of the promises of the OT. The Lord is in His temple.
How does one begin explaining the Trinity? And where do we look in Scripture to see it? By now, it shouldn’t be any surprise that Peter and Kevin are going to start with Jesus!
We discuss John the Baptizer as a faithful witness, God’s character in the Old Testament, especially in Exodus 33-34, and Jesus as grace upon grace.
Forgiving someone is hard. It’s even harder when that person refuses to repent of their sin against you…or to even admit that they sinned at all! What is a Christian do do when this happens? Peter and Kevin talk through where the rubber hits the road in applying Law and Gospel to this situation.
The eternal Word in human flesh. God and man. Divinity sanctifying human flesh. In Jesus, God comes to forgive our sins and to grant us eternal life with Him in the flesh. The glory and exaltation of God is tied to the cross of Jesus Christ. All for you.
