    **CORRECTIONS/CLARIFICATIONS**

    At 3:24 when discussing the word for pride I say "The first word is 'hyper". I meant to say that the first word is "huper". "Hyper" is a transliteration of the Greek word "huper". Not really a substantial point, but I still wanted to be thorough and clear.

    At around 4:25 I mentioned Matthew 23:12. While this passage does not use the same word for “proud” as James 4:6, it absolutely communicates the same concept through the word “exalts”. Different word, same concept.

    At around 27:18 I said something to the effect of, “I didn’t even know what the English word ‘abomination’ meant, let alone the Greek word.” I meant to say “let alone the Hebrew word”, because this verse was originally written in Hebrew.

    **CORRECTIONS/CLARIFICATIONS**
    Around 10:50 when I said, "Talking about this is my favorite thing to do" I was holding up the Bible. I imagine that was probably clear by the context, but still wanted to clarify.
    Around 13:10 I slightly misquoted James 1:2 (although it didn't change the meaning). Here is the verse verbatim: "Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds..."
    Around 13:25 I slightly misquoted Romans 8:28 (although it didn't change the meaning). Here is the verse verbatim: "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."
    Around 14:32 I slightly misquoted Psalm 119:160 (although it didn't change the meaning). Here is the verse verbatim: "The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever."
    Around 14:35 I slightly misquoted Matthew 4:4 (although it didn't change the meaning). Here is the verse verbatim: "But he answered, 'It is written, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God."'"
    Around 18:25 I slightly misquoted Psalm 103:13-14 (although it didn't change the meaning). Here is the verse verbatim: "As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust."
    Around 26:15 I said that 10 karat gold is 50% gold and 50% other metals. It is actually 41.7% gold and 58.3% other metals.
    At 30:34 I quoted part of 1 Corinthians 10:13. I wanted to write out the entire thing here because it is so relevant to this episode's topic: "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."
    Around 31:43 I said that the Greek word used in the James passage translated as "steadfastness" is "hupomeno." It is actually the word "hupomone." This doesn't change the point at all. "Hupomeno" is simply the verb form while "hupomone" is the noun.
    Around 41:32 I say, "Unfortunately and fortunately He is more concerned with lasting change.” Obviously, I was being intentionally facetious when I said "unfortunately." The Lord developing us is the best thing that could happen to us.

    27. Who knows you?

    27. Who knows you?

    Today we talk about the vital importance of being in genuine Christian community where we can be transparent and vulnerable.

    Scriptures used:

    Luke 14:7-11
    Psalm 27:10

    James 5:13-18
    Mark 2:1-12
    Mark 8:22
    James 4:6

    CORRECTIONS/CLARIFICATIONS
    At around 1:45 when I say the parable is straightforward, that is not to say that it is simple. The truth is that there are always new insights and life-changing principles that the Lord can show us from any passage. We will never 100% exhaust any part of the Bible.

    Here is the resource I mentioned that could be helpful in finding verses related to specific topics: http://www.openbible.info/topics/

    Many of the verses used in this episode:
    Philippians 4:6-7
    Hebrews 4:12
    Hebrews 13:5c

    Matthew 23:12
    Romans 12:15
    Proverbs 24:17-18

    **CORRECTIONS/CLARIFICATIONS**


    At around 30:15 I said "the superficial feelings." I meant to say "the superficial thoughts."

    At 31:35 I quote Matthew 23:12 but I accidentally said "but" instead of "and". It does not change the meaning, but here is the actual verse: "Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted" (Matthew 23:12).

    Here are the articles that I referenced (as well as a few others that might be helpful):

    General overview of the Trinity: https://www.gotquestions.org/Trinity-Bible.html

    Information about Jesus being God: https://www.insight.org/resources/article-library/individual/how-do-we-know-that-jesus-is-god

    Information concerning the Angel of the Lord: https://blog.logos.com/angel-of-the-lord/ (This is quite a lengthly and somewhat detailed article, but it is helpful when discussing this subject. One quick correction: at one place the article mentions "Genesis 20:10-18". That is a typo. The correct reference is Genesis 22:10-18.)

    Information about the Holy Spirit being God: https://www.gotquestions.org/is-the-Holy-Spirit-God.html

    Concerning Modalism: https://www.gotquestions.org/Modalistic-Monarchianism.html

    Concerning Arianism: https://www.gotquestions.org/arianism.html

    Concerning Docetism: https://www.gotquestions.org/Docetism.html

    Concerning Adoptionism: https://www.gotquestions.org/adoptionism.html

    I mentioned that I would include a few articles discussing the possible meaning of John 10:34. Below are two articles that take differing stances. I want to include as a disclaimer that I am not necessarily endorsing one view over the other. To be totally honest, I am not fully sure where I land on the subject yet. I would like to study it more. However, I simply wanted to include both perspectives as a means of allowing you all to be informed.

    One view: https://www.gotquestions.org/you-are-gods.html

    Another view: https://faithlife.com/posts/776815

    Here is the quote I mentioned concerning when Jesus said “for the Father is greater than I”: “‘for the Father is greater than I’ This is not a statement that focuses on the inequality of the Son, but a statement that deals with the functions within the Trinity related to mankind's salvation (cf. John 10:29-30). This subordination of the Son was only for a period of time, during His stay on the earth to fulfill the Triune God's plan of revelation and redemption (cf. John 17:4-5; Phil. 2:6-11). However, there is a sense in which the Father, being the sender, is primary (cf. John 13:16; 1 Cor. 15:27-28; Eph. 1:3-14).”

    **CORRECTIONS**
    At 3:34 it was not too clear when I finished the quote. Here is the whole quote: "This is a term that is used to attempt to describe the triune God—three coexistent, co-eternal Persons who are God."
    At 31:41 the correct reference is actually Matthew 9:9-13.
    At 38:55 the correct reference is actually Philippians 2:5-11.
