    Do Jesus’ Teachings Conflict With Old Testament Violence? - Sermon on the Mount Q+R 3

    Do Jesus’ Teachings Conflict With Old Testament Violence? - Sermon on the Mount Q+R 3

    Sermon on the Mount Q+R 3 (E25) – What does Jesus mean when he describes people entering the Kingdom of the skies? Are the promises in the Beatitudes possible now, or do we need to wait for the new creation? How did Jesus respond to other perspectives on how to treat our enemies? How do we reconcile Jesus’ teachings on creative nonviolence with violence in the Old Testament narratives? Why does Jesus tell his followers to be perfect when the Bible repeatedly mentions that all humans fail? In this episode, Tim and Jon respond to your questions from episodes 15-22 in the Sermon on the Mount series. Thank you to our audience for your thoughtful questions!

    Does God Lead Us Into Temptation? (The Lord’s Prayer Pt. 5)

    Does God Lead Us Into Temptation? (The Lord’s Prayer Pt. 5)

    Sermon on the Mount E24 – Many of us first learned the King James translation of the final, personal request in the Lord’s Prayer: “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” But does God actually lead us into temptation? In a motif that weaves throughout the Hebrew Bible, we see God allowing tests to strengthen his partnership with humans. When this motif picks up in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus is the one experiencing testing. In this episode, Tim, Jon, and Michelle explore the theme of testing and temptation throughout the Bible and in the life of Jesus. From his own experience, Jesus teaches us to pray for protection from temptation and for rescue when it comes.

    What Forgiveness Is and Isn't (The Lord's Prayer Pt. 4)

    Sermon on the Mount E23 – The second half of the Lord’s prayer contains four requests on behalf of the person praying. The second personal request is for God to forgive us. But forgiveness is not just a transaction between individuals or between God and humans. Forgiveness plays a central role in the arrival of God’s Kingdom. In this episode, Jon, Tim, and Michelle explore what forgiveness is, what it isn't, and what it looks like to set each other free.

    What Does Jesus Mean by “Daily Bread”? (The Lord’s Prayer Pt. 3)

    What Does Jesus Mean by “Daily Bread”? (The Lord’s Prayer Pt. 3)

    Sermon on the Mount E22 – The first half of the Lord’s Prayer features three requests on behalf of God and his Kingdom: he is our Father in the skies, whose name we recognize as holy and whose way of life we want to see on the land. The second half of the Lord’s prayer focuses on four personal requests, where we seek to align our needs with God’s wisdom. In this episode, Jon and Tim discuss the first request of “daily bread” and its connections to stories and wisdom in the Hebrew Bible.

    What Does “Hallowed Be Thy Name” Mean? (The Lord’s Prayer Pt. 2)

    What Does “Hallowed Be Thy Name” Mean? (The Lord’s Prayer Pt. 2)

    Sermon on the Mount E21 – Prayer is at the center of the center of the Sermon on the Mount. And it’s in this section of teaching that Jesus gives us a simple prayer that we can participate in. It’s only 12 lines long, but it contains a universe of ideas that center us with God. In this episode, Jon and Tim discuss the first half of the prayer: “Our Father who is in the skies, may your name be recognized as holy. May your Kingdom come and your will be done as it is in the skies so also on the land.”

Forgiveness

I have a story of forgiveness in my own life which over the years I have told and have discovered in the telling that with Jesus, there is no formula. He asks us to forgive regardless of the relationship after and in spite of the fact that the other person never apologizes or repents. And if we do that, we are free of the burden of their sin.
I love how you guys are not weakening the argument that we are called to forgive—no matter what. Because that is where the power is.I hear so many people just trying to say that Jesus didn’t mean it in certain situations, or in my situation. Great podcast!

Thought Provoking and Deep!

If you want a deep dive into the Bible, biblical themes, and Jesus - this Podcast will take you there! I just listened to the Tree of Life series and the theme of the tree throughout the Bible is mind-blowing! I loved the Bible Project Videos, but this Podcast takes it even deeper! A must listen!

Forgiveness

This week’s episode has me reflecting on how daily forgiveness is as essential for our life in the current age as bread or food is for our bodies
