    Son of Man (Part Two)

    Son of Man (Part Two)

    In today’s Bible study, we continue to discuss Jesus’ favorite title for himself, “Son of Man.” If you haven’t had a chance to listen to the first episode in this series, make sure you go back and listen to that episode as well. Understanding Jesus’ humanity and his role in our lives, as well as his role in the Universe, is of the utmost importance. We hope you are encouraged by this Bible study.

    Some of the Bible passages we studied in this episode include Hebrews 2, Psalm 8, Daniel 7, and 1 John 2. Jesus’ humanity is tied to his rule and reign, but also his role as our “advocate.”

    If you have a passage or topic you would like us to study, please send Wes an email or call and leave a short message at 707-238-2216. We may play your message on an upcoming episode of the Bible Study Podcast.

    Role of Women: Can Women Serve Communion

    Role of Women: Can Women Serve Communion

    Today’s Bible study question comes from a listener named Charles, who asks, “Wes, Is it right or wrong for women to serve the communion, as long as they are not leading prayer or reading scripture?” Wes and Travis discuss this issue. We hope this discussion is unifying, rather than divisive.



    As Wes and Travis study and discuss the issue of roles in the worship assembly, they primarily focus on 1 Corinthians 14:26–40 (ESV):



    26 What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up. 27 If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn, and let someone interpret. 28 But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silent in church and speak to himself and to God. 29 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others weigh what is said. 30 If a revelation is made to another sitting there, let the first be silent. 31 For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all be encouraged, 32 and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets. 33 For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints, 34 the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. 35 If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church. 36 Or was it from you that the word of God came? Or are you the only ones it has reached? 37 If anyone thinks that he is a prophet, or spiritual, he should acknowledge that the things I am writing to you are a command of the Lord. 38 If anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized. 39 So, my brothers, earnestly desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. 40 But all things should be done decently and in order.



    If you have a passage or topic you would like us to study, please send Wes an email or call and leave a short message at 707-238-2216. We may play your message on an upcoming episode of the Bible Study Podcast.

    Elders and Marriage: The Husband of One Wife

    In today’s Bible study, Wes and Travis discuss an email from a listener named Gayla, who wants to know about various applications of 1 Timothy 3:2.

Customer Reviews

ViperChief ,

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.

Mldevore ,

Sound Reasoning and Kindness

This podcast takes a conservative approach explaining from the Scriptures how we ought to conduct ourselves in ways that honor God and love our neighbors as ourselves.

Alan Groves, Jr. ,

Long-Distance Discipleship

Wes doesn’t know me, but he is discipling me through this podcast. His love for God is contagious. He has challenged me to think more deeply about many passages of Scripture. I am thankful that he addresses issues that are theologically and culturally salient. In his conversations with guests, Wes models the virtues of charity, patience, and humility.

The production quality is excellent. The sound is great and the editing is seamless.

I think the podcast could be improved by shortening the length of each episode to 30 minutes. But I still give the podcast a solid five stars!
