Show Notes

One of the most significant periods of the church calendar, and least celebrated or noted, is the 40 days after Jesus rose from the dead. He walked and talked in places where His ministry had been; He was seen in His restored body by thousands; He healed many; He continued to preach, He continued to love. And then He ascended to Heaven, taken up in the sky, which also was witnessed by others.

 

What is the significance of the 40 day period between the Resurrection and the Ascension? What is the significance of the Ascension?

Episode 240: A Living Epistle

We wrap up the book of 2 Corinthians by exploring the context in which it is written and its importance in understanding the work of the apostle Paul. We explore some of the highlights. We linger for a moment on two notions: (1) principles of Christian giving, and (2) the idea of being a “living epistle.” Scriptures referenced include 2 Corinthians 10:1–2; 2 Corinthians 11:1–12:13; 2 Corinthians 3:1-3; Romans 16:1-2, 1 Corinthians 16:3, 10-11; 2 Corinthians 8:16-24; Psalm 22; Isaiah 53; and 2 Corinthians 13:11-12, 14. ...

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. ...
