    Communion Thoughts: Discerning the Body

    Communion Thoughts: Discerning the Body

    Concerning the Lord’s Supper, or Communion, the Apostle Paul wrote, “For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself” (1 Corinthians 11:29). What does it mean to discern the body? Are we to think about the body of Christ on the cross or the body of Christ, the church? Is “Communion” about communing with the Lord or communing with each other? These are the questions we consider and study in today’s Bible Study Podcast.



    We hope you are encouraged by this Bible study.

    Character Produces Hope (Romans 5:4)

    Character Produces Hope (Romans 5:4)

    Wes McAdams and Travis Pauley discuss a listener’s question concerning Romans 5:3-5, which says, “We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” They compare Romans 5:3-5 with a well-known saying, “Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny” (Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching).



    * What does it mean that character produces hope?

    * Are we supposed to be developing character or are we supposed to be developing hope?



    * What role does suffering play in our development?

    * How should we respond to suffering?



    We hope you enjoy this Bible study.

    Reading Whole Books of the Bible

    Reading Whole Books of the Bible

    Reading a whole book of the Bible in one sitting is easier, and more rewarding, than you might think. After all, if you received a letter from a friend, you would likely not read it one sentence at a time, but rather the entire letter all at once. The vast majority of New Testament books are letters, written to individuals and church families. They were intended to be read in one sitting. Travis and Wes discuss the power of reading books this way and also read through the book of Philippians from beginning to end.

    If you are looking for a way to read through the Bible this year, you might enjoy this Bible Reading Plan, which takes you through one book at a time. Wes’ book, Beyond the Verse was written as he documented his Bible reading following that plan. We hope all of this encourages you to try reading through whole books of the Bible a little more often.

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 6): New and Old Treasures

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 6): New and Old Treasures

    In this sixth and final episode of our series, “What is the Kingdom of Heaven?” Wes and Travis discuss Jesus’ words in Matthew 13:52, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.” What does Jesus mean by treasure that is new and treasure that is old? What is a scribe that that has been trained for the kingdom of heaven?

    We hope you enjoy this Bible study on Matthew 13:51-52.

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 5): The Parable of the Net

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 5): The Parable of the Net

    As Jesus continues to unfold hidden truths about the nature of heaven’s kingdom, he describes the kingdom as a net that is spread across the whole world. What does this parable reveal about God’s kingdom? What does this parable reveal about the way God deals with evil? How would this parable change our lives if we took its implications seriously? We hope you enjoy this Bible study discussion with Wes McAdams and Travis Pauley.

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 4): Hidden Treasure and Valuable Pearl

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 4): Hidden Treasure and Valuable Pearl

    As we continue our ongoing discussion about the nature of the kingdom of heaven, Wes McAdams and Travis Pauley discuss Jesus’ parables about the hidden treasure and the pearl of great value (Matthew 13:44-46). What do these two parables teach us about the nature of the kingdom? What do these two parables teach us about how we are to receive the kingdom?

    We hope you are encouraged by this conversation.
