    By the Numbers: Number 10

    By the Numbers: Number 10

    Are you aware there are two versions of the Ten Commandments? Or how about how the number 10 shows up in those created in the image of God? 
    Dr. Bruce Becker takes us on a journey of the number 10, from Genesis to Revelation. We see how the number was woven into the everyday worship lives of God's Old Testament people and how Jesus used it in his teaching. Also, we see what the number 10 symbolizes for us today, helping us remember completeness, God's perfection, and our obedience.

    By the Numbers: Number 7

    By the Numbers: Number 7

    What does the number 7 actually signify? We know it's special, but just what makes it so unique? For starters, Bible scholars can't even agree on how many times it shows up in Scripture.
    We know of the more common accounts in the Bible (7 days of creation, God rested on the 7th day, 7 pairs of clean animals brought onto the ark, 7 churches in the book of Revelation). But dig deep, as Dr. Bruce Becker helps us do in this episode, and you'll see the fascinating ways number 7 shows up in Scripture. And more important, you'll see how the number 7 expresses God's completion, perfection, and holiness—and what that means for you.

    By the Numbers: Number 4

    By the Numbers: Number 4

    On the fourth day, God created the sun, moon, and stars. That's simple enough to remember and understand, right? God created the lights to govern days and nights.
    But packed into this one day, we can see how the number 4 is a building block of God's incredible creative design. On day 4, God established time and how to measure it. He used this number as the foundation for life on this earth. Additionally, the number 4 shows up in different ways in the Bible, from visions to Jesus' return. Dr. Bruce Becker takes us on a deep dive as we see how the number 4 is literally built into our lives.

    By the Numbers: Number 3

    By the Numbers: Number 3

    The number 3 is pretty self-explanatory in its signficance, right? We immediately think of the Trinity—the three persons in the Godhead.

    But the number 3 also shows up in other ways throughout the Bible, from Genesis all the way to Revelation—and everything in between: from the patriarchs to Samuel, from David to Elijah, from Daniel to Jesus. Dr. Bruce Becker helps us gain a deeper understanding of how this number signifies the harmony and completeness of God.

    By the Numbers: Number 1

    By the Numbers: Number 1

    The number 1 shows up more than 2,500 times in the Bible. It describes people, places, and things. But it also holds much deeper meaning—there are six key phrases that signify the two most important things about God.

    In this second episode of the "By the Numbers" series, Dr. Bruce Becker gives us an in-depth look at the number 1. Dr. Becker also challenges us to memorize one all-encompassing verse (he'll teach it to you in Hebrew too, if you'd like!) and shows us why Number 1 is ultimately God's number.

    Dr. Becker also mentions his new book, "Gifted for More." This engaging study shows you how to discover your own giftedness and put those abilities into action for God’s glory. Get your copy at timeofgracestore.org.

I’ve learned SO MUCH about the Bible!

I have learned so much from listening to Dr. Becker. This is so well researched and presented in a way that’s easy to listen to and understand. We don’t get lost in the theological granular weeds the way we can with a lot of today’s Bible podcasts.

There’s so much richness to the Bible that non-scholars like me could never uncover on my own—which is why I’m glad to learn something new each time I listen to this podcast!
