Show Notes

Right living is essential because Christ “gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed,” saving us “by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit” (Titus 2:14; 3:5).

 

Paul writes a letter to his co-worker, Titus, to address concerns about false teaching. To help him deal with this problem, Paul provides Titus with a portrait of a healthy church. He describes proper leadership (Titus 1:5–9), proper handling of error (Titus 1:10–16; 3:9–11), proper Christian living (especially important for new believers in an immoral setting; Titus 2:1–10; Titus 3:1–2), and the gospel as the source of godliness (Titus 2:11–14; Titus 3:3–7).

 

Additional scriptures referenced include Titus 3:1-2, 8 and Acts 14:21-23.

Episode 347: Women in the Life of Jesus

Jesus came to earth not primarily as a male but as a person. He treated women not primarily as females but as human beings. Today’s top ten list spotlights ten women in Jesus’ life: Mary, his mother; Elizabeth, Mary’s cousin; Anna the prophetess; Mary Magdalene; Joanna, wife of Chuza; Mary and Martha of Bethany; Mary, wife of Clopas; Salome, mother of James and John; a woman with an issue of blood; and a woman with a demon-possessed daughter. From these examples we learn about the value God places on women and the ways in which we ought to engage with Jesus.   Scriptures referenced include John 19:25-27; Luke 1; Luke 2:36-38; Matthew 27:61; Matthew 28:1; John 20:1; Mark 16:9; Luke 24:10; John 20:18; Luke 10:40-42; Luke 6:15; Matthew 27:56; Matthew 20:20–21; Mark 15:40; Mark 16:1–8; Matthew 9:20-22; Mark 5:25-34; Luke 8:43-48; Matthew 15:21-28; Mark 7:24-30; and Acts 10:28. ...
