The verse before us today teaches us much about God’s sovereign designs in salvation. God, the master architect, has orchestrated salvation for us. He who made the world sent His Son into the world to suffer for mankind and save man from His sin. He who deserves all glory has brought us to glory through Christ.…
 
The astronomer Carl Sagan said, “Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.” He spoke as a sceptic, knowing the magnitude of the universe but unwilling to believe in the Creator. Though he may be right that s…
 
When you think of Hebrews you should think of two words: Christ, and better. Hebrews is supreme in the New Testament in its treatment of Christ’s person and work. Specifically, how He has fulfilled all that the Old Testament law predicted. For this reason, He is better. And He brings the better covenant and better promises through His better mediat…
 
In this seventh and final episode we will look at the close of the canon. Should Christians today expect personal revelations from God? Should we expect divinely inspired writings to be composed or discovered? How we answer this question may be more important than you think. Confusion about the close of the biblical canon opens us up to ideas that …
 
One of the toughest questions relating to the canon of Scripture is that of the extent of the canon. How do we know that the books we think are Scripture are actually from God? Have we missed any? Answers vary. We are continuing the discussion of the canon of Scripture by taking a look at some of the disputed writings.…
 
We are continuing our series on the canon of Scripture. Before us today is a discussion of how the Old Testament canon came to be. Why do we consider the 39 books of the Old Testament to be Scripture? Episodes are typically uploaded on Monday mornings. My apologies for the lateness of this episode; I've been quite occupied the last two weeks with a…
 
The question of canon is, “How do we know which writings speak for God.” This question assumes that God has spoken, and that He has done so through a written word. How are Christians nearly 2000 years removed from the writing of the New Testament to know that we have everything God intended us to have and nothing more? Today we will look at the pri…
 
The doctrine of the canon of Scripture addresses the question of how we can know what is included in the inspired, inerrant, authoritative Scriptures. All Scripture is God-breathed, but how do we know which writings are from God and which have been contrived by man? Certain principles can be used to gauge whether or not a historical writing deserve…
 
God’s written word is fundamental to Christianity. What we believe and how we live are defined by the Bible. We have no starting point for knowing God, for knowing the gospel, or for being equipped for Christian living without what God has made known to us in the sixty-six books of the Bible. But there’s the question. How did these particular writi…
 
Critical Race Theory purports to provide a helpful framework for recognizing racism, exposing injustice, and providing effective solutions to promote equality and justice. In previous episodes we’ve discussed some of the reasons why CRT fails to accomplish its purpose. Does CRT really exceed God’s way of reconciling all people through the gospel?…
 
The history of the United States is marred with racism. Like it or not, racism was protected and promoted by the social and legal structures of its past. Have those issues been eradicated? How should Christians understand this history, and what should we do about it? Is social justice the answer? Political activism? Gospel love? What does God expec…
 
How should biblically informed believers think about the contemporary call for social justice? How should we think about Critical Race Theory, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the increasing use of CRT terminology within the church? What is—and is not—biblical justice? Sword and Trumpet held a conference this spring to discuss these issues. In …
 
Critical Race Theory. Social justice. Black Lives Matter. Wokeness. These ideas are floating around in our culture and increasingly in our churches. How should biblically informed believers think about these things? Sword and Trumpet held a conference this spring to discuss these issues. In each of these episodes we will review selected snippets fr…
 
Hebrews is unmatched in the New Testament in its manifestation of the glories of Christ. It tells us of His deity and His humanity, of His work as our High Priest and His offering of Himself as our effectual atonement, of His supremeness above all creation and all created things. From the outset, the author intends to set our minds on Christ. Expos…
 
On this episode we will be discussing the word of God. Specifically, our need for God to speak to us, and the value of God speaking through a written word. We’ll follow that up by looking at the attributes of Scripture and its effects on those who read it. Foundations: Theology for the everyday Anabaptist…
 
What motivates us to minister in the church, or share the gospel, or help those who suffer, or care for people’s needs? Why do we try to do what God asks us to do? Why do we obey Scripture? Why do good works? Touchpoints: At the intersection of biblical theology and ordinary lifeJulian Stoltzfus tarafından oluşturuldu
 
Why Hebrews? There is perhaps no better account of the character and work of Christ than this epistle. Hebrews provides a comprehensive explanation of who Christ is as God and man, of what Christ has accomplished as our High Priest and our Atonement, and of the effects of salvation in the lives of believers. Expositions: Scripture explored, explain…
