Hyperbolic Jesus

January 30th, 2018
00:0000:00

In Episode 13 I’m diving back into my book, New: Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ. This is an audio version of Chapter 4, which is called Hyperbolic Jesus. In the previous chapter, I began to discuss how the earliest Christians took Jesus’ words very simply and seriously, even when it came to loving their enemies. Now in chapter 4, I continue to examine that approach to reading the Bible, specifically as it pertains to Jesus’ command to cut off our hands and pluck out our eyes if they cause us to sin.

Peter’s Attractional Christianity

January 16th, 2018
00:0000:00

In Episode 12 I’m going to be discussing what the Apostle Peter meant in chapter 2:12 of his first letter when he commanded us to keep our behavior excellent among the gentiles. I’ll also be hitting on the influence Jesus had on Peter making that statement, and shedding some light on the way the early Christians behaved in the world. Much emphasis is given on being attractional in today’s Western Church, but what would attractional Christianity look like to Peter?

00:0000:00

Episode 11 is a special episode, where I’m give the listener an audio version of chapter three of my book, New: Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ. The title of this chapter is: John Wayne and Jesus, where I examine the way our various traditions and preferences that filter our view of Jesus and His teachings affect the way we approach Jesus’ command to love our enemies.

Power for Change

December 19th, 2017
00:0000:00

In Episode 10, I’m going to be discussing the vital need for Christians to believe in the power of regeneration.

Sepia Jesus

November 21st, 2017
00:0000:00

Episode 8 is a special episode, where I give the listener an audio version of chapter two of my book, New: Wineskins and the Simple Words of Christ. The title of this chapter is: Sepia Jesus because I believe that every Christian comes to faith in Jesus with various traditions and preferences that filter his or her view of Jesus and His teachings. Jesus, however, calls us to make Him the lens by which we view everything else.

The Perfect Podcast

October 10th, 2017
00:0000:00

In Episode 5, I’m going to discuss Matthew 5:48, where Jesus commanded His disciples, “Be perfect as your heavenly father is perfect.” How does the context surrounding that verse help us understand what Jesus meant? I’ll also look at how modern teachers have used the hyper grace message to disregard this command of Jesus, and finally how the earliest Christians embraced Jesus’ teaching on this matter.
