    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 4): Hidden Treasure and Valuable Pearl

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 4): Hidden Treasure and Valuable Pearl

    As we continue our ongoing discussion about the nature of the kingdom of heaven, Wes McAdams and Travis Pauley discuss Jesus’ parables about the hidden treasure and the pearl of great value (Matthew 13:44-46). What do these two parables teach us about the nature of the kingdom? What do these two parables teach us about how we are to receive the kingdom?

    We hope you are encouraged by this conversation.

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 3): Mustard Seed and Leaven

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 3): Mustard Seed and Leaven

    As Wes McAdams and Travis Pauley continue their series on, “What is the Kingdom of Heaven,” they discuss the parables of the mustard seed and the leaven (Matthew 13:31-33). What does it mean that the kingdom of heaven is like a tiny mustard seed that grows into a large tree? What does it mean that the kingdom of heaven is like leaven hidden in dough? And how do Jesus’ revelations about the kingdom of heaven change our perception and our lives? We hope you are encouraged by this conversation.

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 2): The Parable of Wheat and Tares

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven (Part 2): The Parable of Wheat and Tares

    In the second episode of our series, “What is the Kingdom of Heaven?” Wes and Travis discuss Jesus’ parable of the wheat and the tares (Matthew 13:24-30). Perhaps the most surprising feature of the kingdom of heaven is that it will overlap the kingdoms of the world for a period of time. Though the kingdom of heaven has come, we continue to deal with the seeds the evil one has sown in the world.

    We hope this Bible study encourages you to seek the kingdom of heaven.

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven: The Parable of the Soils

    What is the Kingdom of Heaven: The Parable of the Soils

    What is the kingdom of heaven? Over the next several episodes, Wes McAdams and Travis Pauley will discuss several parables from Matthew 13, which reveal the nature of the kingdom of heaven. On this episode, Wes and Travis discuss how we should think about parables, as well as the first parable in Matthew 13, “The Parable of the Soils” (also called, “The Parable of the Sower”). The text for today’s Bible study comes from Matthew 13:1-23.

    We hope this Bible study encourages you to seek the kingdom of heaven.

    Asking Better Bible Questions (Part Two)

    Asking Better Bible Questions (Part Two)

    In this episode of the Bible Study Podcast, Wes and Travis continue their discussion on asking better Bible questions. Questions like these are discussed:



    * What is an assumption?

    * What assumptions do we make when we study the Bible?

    * What can the Sadducees teach us about making assumptions when we study the Bible (Mark 12:18-27)?

    * How can we develop better assumptions?



    It is inevitable that when we study the Bible, we will make assumptions. The key is to allow “inductive” Bible study to shape and mold the assumptions we are making. We hope you are encouraged and edified by this conversation. If you missed part one of this conversation, “Asking Better Bible Questions (Part One),” you might want to listen to that as well.

    Asking Better Bible Questions (Part One)

    Asking Better Bible Questions (Part One)

    On this episode of the Bible Study Podcast, Travis and Wes discuss how to ask better questions when we are reading and studying the Bible.



    * How are we supposed to approach scripture as followers of Jesus?

    * What’s the difference between deductive and inductive Bible study?

    * Does the Bible answer all of our questions?



    But the primary question of this conversation is, are we looking to change others with what we read, or are we letting scripture change us as we read? This is the first in a series of episodes on the subject of asking better Bible questions, so make sure you’re subscribed to the podcast (either through your podcast provider or through email) to hear the next episode in the series.

Great Podcast

I would like to say thank you Wes for your time and dedication in sharing your knowledge and understanding of the word of God. I have read both of your books, “Beyond the Verse” and “The Treasure Chest of Grace”, twice. I especially enjoy your conversations on resurrection from the dead and new heavens and new earth. May God continue to bless the work you are doing.

Outstanding Biblical Truths

Thank you for the guide through the Christian walk on this earth. The topics are all great listens. Thank you for preaching the word of God in the darkness.

Not all true....

I’ve listened to this multiple times and each time I have my bible open near me. Every time Wes says a verse, I check it and most of the time it isn’t all true. I definitely encourage the people who listen to this to have a bible near by so that they can check verses, quotes and things that God our Heavenly Father said in the Bible.
When I first started listening to this, I took it one hundred percent, until a friend of mine pointed out a verse that Wes had said that wasn’t in the correct place.
I often find what Wes has to say offending as a black women. It’s very hard to find a good, honest bible study podcast now days...
