Discover the Word is a weekly, Bible-study podcast that invites you to join a team of hosts — and maybe a special guest or two — in breaking down passages of Scripture to discover fresh perspective and practical application.
3. Dress Up! | Discover the Word
Remember playing dress up as a kid? You’d get in your mom’s or dad’s old clothes and role play adulthood. The Bible is filled with mentions of clothing – both literal and figurative, beginning in Genesis with the first desire for clothing after human kind’s fall. Through the New Testament epistles especially, the metaphor of “dressing up” takes on a special significance, directing us to express our internal faith in external efforts, the way we “put on” certain items of clothing.
2. Mental Health in the Bible | Discover the Word
Dr. Christina Edmondson is convinced that since our brain is part of our body, we need to pursue good "brain health." Our brains are a gift from God and we need to be good stewards of our brains just like we need to be good stewards of our whole body. So, how do we take good care of our brain? How do we practice good mental health? Join the Discover the Word group this week as Dr. Christina Edmondson takes us to some passages of Scripture that offer some mental health best practices.
1. The Master of Forgiveness | Discover the Word
None of us escape being hurt deeply by others as we go through life. We've all been cheated on, lied to, swindled, dismissed, isolated, taken advantage of. And it's into that broken reality that Jesus tells a parable about one of the most difficult things we do in life--forgive. Join the Discover the Word group this week as they immerse themselves in a story Jesus told about forgiveness, unforgiveness, and the transforming power of mercy.
My favorite Bible study
This is by far my favorite Bible study program! I listen while I work and while I drive. I love the experiences they share, their knowledge and understanding of the Bible, that they are open to share what is also unclear to them. They get along so well and have wonderful, knowledgeable guests as well. I learn so much from them. And we even share laughter and tears. Love this podcast!
Format change is NOT good-Looking for a new podcast
The format changed recently and I don't like it at all!
I have been listening for years. This change was made with no announcement or explanation.
I enjoyed the weekday format of short shows that helped me to focus on a certain thought. The next day built upon the previous days' Word. Soon, a whole creation of how to look at Scripture was created over time and through reviewing and reflecting.
This format just dumps a whole lot of information with no break for reflection.
Please consider going back to the weekday format. If not, I will be looking for another podcast.
The great teachers!
This group has had brought so much joy into my life. Listening to Each and one of them explaining the stories of our god /Jesus and how they reflect in to our lives; have been teaching me and give me desire to explore the Bible and understanding the meaning of it. Sometimes the Bible verses are so difficult to me to understand even in my own primary language but with the help and illustrations from the group, has been more easy to comprehend.
Thank you 🙏
