    How Biblical Themes Connect the Dots

    How Biblical Themes Connect the Dots

    The more we read our Bibles, the more layers we start to uncover. If this hasn't happened for you, or you find yourself thinking that you've already learned everything there is to know about a passage, let me encourage you to start thinking about biblical themes. The themes in the Bible connect the dots in amazing ways. Not only do they cross over from the Old to New Testament- but they also cross over between different biblical genres. Today we'll look at a theme in the Bible that crosses between Genesis, Proverbs, and Revelation. Two different testaments and three different genres. Let's connect the dots and enhance our Bible reading!

    Who Interprets the Bible- Me or the Holy Spirit?

    Who Interprets the Bible- Me or the Holy Spirit?

    This question is very divisive. Some people argue that Bible interpretation is all about the work of understanding the grammar and literary features of the Bible, along with some historical background knowledge. Others argue that only the Holy Spirit can interpret the Bible to us and it requires none of those things. What doesn't help is that we typically argue this question with two different definitions of what exactly Bible interpretation means. Today I want to offer a balanced approach that (hopefully) avoids both extremes. I hope it's helpful to your own endeavor to correctly interpret the Bible while being led by the Spirit!

    The Chief End of Theology

    The Chief End of Theology

    From Theoretical-Practical Theology Volume 1, pages 104-112

    Today we're wrapping up chapter 1 with Peter van Mastricht's interesting explanation of what the big idea behind theology is. For some people, theology is all about doctrine. For others, it's all about practice. And for most of us, it's somewhere between the middle. Peter van Mastricht gives us his answer about the chief end of theology by calling it "preeminently practical". Here's what that means and how it makes his approach to theology unique.

    A Parable About Prayer

    A Parable About Prayer

    What does the parable of the persistent widow teach us? This parable is unique to the gospel of Luke, but thankfully we don't have to guess about the right interpretation of this parable. That's because Luke tells us exactly what it's about in verse 1: "And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart." Today we'll consider how this parable encourages us to pray and how prayer keeps us from losing heart. This video is from a recent sermon I preached at Grace Community Church in Yulee Florida. If you want to know more about this church, feel free to visit their website: gracenassau.com

    Is the Old Testament Expendable? (and what happens if it is)

    Is the Old Testament Expendable? (and what happens if it is)

    Is the Old Testament expendable? With "New Testament Only" Bibles, troubling statements from notable pastors, and arguments from the culture, the Old Testament repeatedly finds itself in the crosshairs. In response to this, the Old Testament gets pushed to the side. Is this a sign of innovation and progress, or does it represent a troubling trend that would destroy Christianity? Today we'll discuss what happens when the Old Testament is expendable, and why you should care about the 2/3's of your Bible that normally gets ignored.
