Echoing Hope (Conversation with Kurt Willems) - KR 174
We all experience difficulties and hardships. But how can we learn to live richly in the midst of them? And even grow spiritually because of them? The answer is found in the hopeful humanity of Jesus.
Scot McKnight and Kurt Willems unpack what led Kurt to write a book about the hope that comes from Jesus' humanity. As the Son of God, Jesus wasn’t exempt from suffering, disappointment, or injustice. He lived in the real world as a real person. He wept for those he loved. He felt hunger and thirst. He endured temptation, betrayal, and ridicule. He died after being unjustly tortured. And somehow through it all, he embodied hope—by defeating death and opening a new world of life for us.

One of my fav podcasts
Scot McKnight has been very influential in my theological development and peeling back the veil on different biblical themes and cultural topics. Definitely worth a subscribe!
For clergy (I am Canadian Anglican) this is the most interesting and useful podcast I have found. It encompasses a broad spectrum from conservative to liberal. It quickly translates into highly useable material for sermons and future study.
