4.40 - Marriage - Part 5
The guys are still in the NT this week and are focused on some of the murkier marriage/divorce passages. What was the bottom line for Jesus? What did Paul expect from the churches he pastored?
4.39 - Marriage - Part 4
What does the NT say about marriage, remarriage, & divorce? This week the guys crack open the NT and begin looking at relevant passages to explore God's parameters for marriage.
4.38 - Marriage - Part 3
The ACP guys continue their focus on marriage. This week they wrap up the relevant OT passages and see how God's laws held Israel to his standards for marriage. Listen in to see if God allows Israel any exceptions for those who are dissatisfied with their marriages.
4.37 - Marriage - Part 2
The ACP guys continue to work their way through Torah as they explore marriage, remarriage, and divorce. Though some passages in Torah are sometimes taken out of context and used as a way to defend divorce - the guys discuss and explain how those laws are actually meant to protect women and aren't really offering divorce as an "out".
4.36 - Marriage - Part 1
This week the guys are back in their normal swing and discussing marriage. Modern culture has a lot of opinions and differing views on marriage, remarriage, and divorce. Per their custom - the ACP guys give the Bible front stage as the basis for wisdom and truth. What were God's original intentions for marriage? Does the OT support polygamy? Lots of marriage questions answered in this episode!
4.35 - Ron is BACK!
Join the ACP guys as they celebrate Ron's return to health and get the scoop on his journey and experience.
Thankful for this podcast
I am so glad I heard about this podcast this year! Hands down my favorite podcast! I have learned so much about the Bible and I have been so encouraged. As I have been reading through the Old Testament, many of their episodes have fleshed out concepts I may not have otherwise understood or that I may have missed. Thank you for using your God-given gifts for enriching the lives of everyone who listens!
My new favorite podcast
I just discovered these guys last week and I have no idea why it took me so long. I’m an avid Christian/Bible podcast listener and the format and thorough content...and humility of these guys is unmatched. I just listened to 7 straight hours on the atonement and “Why Jesus had to die” and they I learned so much from their unbiased exegesis and comparisons of the different “theories”.
Nerdy theology that I can understand
My husband has a seminary degree from moody and has lovingly referred to this as his nerdy theology podcast for as few years in our marriage. I wrote it off figuring it would be dry and over my head and I’m so thrilled that I took a chance and listened in! My reaction was “wait, I understand what they are saying and this makes sense!” Thankful for super solid teaching that makes good theology accessible to everyone! Also my husband would love to meet you guys at the Brew for a cup coffee. Or a job interview. He would be honored to sweep your classrooms. He’s a fanboy. Okay that’s all. Go green!
