Episode 363: Women in Ministry

There has long been debate over whether women can be pastors, elders, or even Bible teachers (particularly when their students include men). Christians can and do disagree about these matters. And we will not take a position here. What cannot be disputed is the important roles women have played throughout the Bible as spiritual leaders: prophesying, evangelizing, and ministering in various ways. We discuss the ministry roles played by the Samaritan woman at the well, Huldah the prophetess, Dorcas who helped the needy during New Testament times, and Phoebe who was described as a deacon by the apostle Paul.   Scriptures referenced include John 4:5-42; 2 Kings 22:11-20; 2 Chronicles 34:14-33; Acts 9:36-42; Galatians 2:10; James 1:27; Romans 16:1-2; Luke 10:38–40; and 2 John 1. ...

Episode 376: An Empty Tomb

On a given day, hundreds, perhaps thousands of people from around the world visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. However, while you will see a mosaic, candles, and stones, what you will not see inside the burial place of the Lord, inside the limestone cave in which Jesus was laid to rest after being taken down from the cross are bones. The tomb is empty.   Without an empty tomb, there is no Resurrection, there is no salvation from sin. But we do not have to take the empty tomb as a matter of faith. There is much evidence from Scripture and extra-Biblical sources that the grave no longer holds the body of Jesus Christ.   Scriptures referenced include Matthew 28:1–6; Mark 16:1–7; Luke 24:1–12; John 20:1–12; Matthew 28:13-15; Luke 24:34) and in groups (Matthew 28:9; John 20:26–30; John 21:1–14; Acts 1:3–6; 1 Corinthians 15:3–7; Matthew 12:38–40; and Matthew 16:1–4. ...
