Show Notes

The New Testament mentions several different Herods from Matthew 1 to Acts 26: Herod the Great was “king of the Jews” at Jesus’ birth and tried to have Him killed (Matthew 2). Herod Antipas was king during the ministries of John the Baptist and Jesus. Antipas had John executed (Mark 6) and later declined to pass judgment on Jesus, sending Him back to Pilate (Luke 23:7–12). In Acts 4:27, Herod Antipas (simply called Herod) is mentioned as one of those guilty of the crucifixion of Jesus. Acts 12 speaks of Herod as a persecutor of the apostles, but this is a different Herod—Herod Agrippa I.

 

We explore the life of Herod Agrippa I and his untimely death. And we consider lessons that we can learn from his tragic tale. Additional scriptures referenced include Acts 12:1-12, 18-25; Proverbs 18:12; James 3:1; Deuteronomy 8:18; James 1:17; and John 15:5.

Episode 526-I am the One, Part 1

Today we air a special episode of 1010 Thrive – the first in a five-part series about a man who remembered to give thanks. His name is Ephraim, a Samaritan from the city of Sychar.

To his dismay, after examination by a priest, he is diagnosed with leprosy and banished from the city.   In this five-part series, we learn that God values the least. He honors faith.

Episode 313: God of Second Chances

God is not only the God of second chances; He is the God of another chance. This is good news because most of us mess up that second chance fairly quickly. The Bible is full of people who received second chances, and even third and fourth chances. We identify and discuss some of those people. And then discuss what second chances mean for us in our relationship with God and our relationships with others. Scriptures referenced include Exodus 34:6; Jonah 1; 2 Samuel 11:14-17; Joshua 2; Matthew 26:69-75; Psalm 86:15; Micah 7:18; Colossians 3:12-13; Matthew 6:15; Ephesians 4:32; Proverbs 19:11; Matthew 18:21-22; Psalm 103:10-12; and John 8:1-11. ...

Episode 405: Casting Pearls Before Swine

In the Western tradition, many phrases and terms from the Bible are utilized as allegory, metaphors, idioms, or simply to describe the characteristics of a known person or event. They have become an essential element of literature and descriptions of everyday life situations. Many of these are from the Sermon on the Mount. We consider a few examples in today’s episode.   Scriptures referenced include Matthew 7:1-6; Proverbs 26:11; 2 Peter 2:22; 1 Corinthians 2:15–16; Matthew 9:10; Matthew 10:14; Matthew 5:38-39; Matthew 7:15, 20; Ezekiel 13, Matthew 24:23–27, 2 Peter 3:3; 2 Peter 2:1–3; Jude 1:17–18; 2 Peter 3:14; Matthew 5:41; Matthew 7:12; Matthew 5:13, 37; Matthew 5:1-12; and Matthew 6:9-13. ...
