    Nahum-Zephaniah - The Day

    Nahum-Zephaniah - The Day

    At the end of the book of Zephaniah, the prophet expresses that in the last days, "the king of Israel, even the Lord, is in the midst of thee". Imagine for a moment: what if we took that verse literally and pictured arriving home today from work or school or shopping to find Him in our living room. What would you think and feel if He were there? Would there be relief or reservation? Would there be excitement or anxiety? Would you rush to meet him or would you want  to rush to complete some procrastinated act of kindness? Would you be ready or wish you had more time to repent? This week we study Nahum through Zephaniah and focus on three ideas that can help us better prepare for the Second Coming of Christ.

    Jonah-Micah - Flee

    Jonah-Micah - Flee

    The story of Jonah is a masterpiece of scriptural story that weaves together a very human and relatable character in Jonah with a compelling illustration of the true character of the Lord interlaced with suspense and surprise. It may be one of the best books in our recent study to liken to ourselves. In this week's study we do just that and ask the question, "What am I running away from?"

    Amos-Obadiah - Savior(s)

    Amos-Obadiah - Savior(s)

    I remember years ago watching an episode of a hidden camera tv show where actors acted out a scene where one man, dressed as someone living on the streets, was given money by other only to have that money stolen by some mocking teenagers. The episode focused on the actions of the surrounding people who did know they were watching and actor portrayal, to see if they would intervene, comfort the victim, or just walk on. In this sort of modern day reenactment of the good Samaritan, although some did stop to help, it was surprising to the hosts of the show how many people walked by without any action. If Obadiah were to describe it he might say they "stood on the other side" or "looked on" when someone was hurt. In this episode we study two chastisements Amos and Obadiah give related to our relationship with God and His children that might be painfully relevant to us today.

    Hosea-Joel - Meaning in the Minor Prophets

    Hosea-Joel - Meaning in the Minor Prophets

    Recently I heard a description of some of the reasons why members of the Church have struggled or are struggling with their faith. For a small group, they struggle because they no longer believe the Church is true. For a larger group, they struggle because they do not believe the Church is good. However, for the largest group they struggle because they do not feel like they belong in the Church. In our study this week we read two prophets speaking to people who may be felt this same lack of belonging and we identify both truths about the Lord and possible applications for us that help heal that hurt.

    Daniel 1-6 - Excellent

    Daniel 1-6 - Excellent

    There's a story told almost 100 years ago in a Church magazine about a young man named Creed Haymond who ran track for his college. The night before a meet his coach offered the team alcohol to help them relax for the next day's races. Creed refused, multiple times, and to the chagrin of his coach and teammates. The end of the story is powerful (and you can read it if you click the link in our show notes), but it's actually the middle of the story itself that interests us this week. In this episode we study the great story of Daniel, Mishael, Hananiah, and Azariah and ask the question: how can I live in the modern world and be both true to my beliefs and also harmonious with others?

    Ezekiel - Watch

    Ezekiel - Watch

    Hebrew prophets were valued because of their ability to foresee coming events and, then, warn people in the present. However, the true test of this foresight is, of course, whether or not these visions materialize. Today we study some of the prophet Ezekiel's most far-reaching declarations and see clear fulfillment in our own day.

Insightful

I just listened to your episode “John 1-See” and your questions at the end are so perfect 🙌🏻 THANK YOU! I am approaching the world with new eternal eyes!

So close....

I just discovered your podcast; it is truly edifying to hear your thoughts, interpretations, and insights.

... So, why did I rate you at only 3/5 stars??

Seriously, you just went from describing the precise moment that the single most intelligent, creative, omniscient, loving, perfect, conseqiential, REAL Being anywhere and of all time; made the most important decision ever made—the single event that marked and caused the very meridian of time—(complete with an insight into the very fabric of His priorities and the value that we hold in His heart and mind—), the decision was the one with which He simultaneously elevated every being that ever existed/exists/will exist beyond his/her wildest imaginings, liberating each and everyone from the very bonds of death—in the Garden of Gethsemane.

That moment and cause of the very meridian of time itself, you then proceeded to undermine utterly with the triteness of the comparison to a segment of a SciFi plotline (quality and impressiveness of scripting, acting, cinematography, etc notwithstanding).

Right up to that moment, though, you were working in the zone with the Holy Spirit himself...

Wow!

I just stumbled across this podcast today and listened to Alma 31-32. It brought me so much joy and a perspective I hadn’t thought of before. This will change the way I teach my children and interact with people around me. Can’t wait to catch up on the other chapters as I work through the Book of Mormon!
