    Jesus and The Lawyer

    In Luke 10, a Lawyer asks Jesus how to inherit eternal life. Jesus responds "What is written in the law? How do you read it?" In this episode, Marc approaches the sophistication of Jewish interpretation based in the Hebrew language, and connects to the philosophies of Ancient Judaism that led to Jesus' answer to the Lawyer. We gain insight into Jesus’s words and the relevance of his message.

Context vs Generalizations

Marc’s methodology helps us to understand what the writers of the Bible were trying to communicate to us. Too often I am guilty of trying to quickly decipher general principles and truths from the Bible. However the writers of the Bible often dealt with specific issues. We need to dig deeper and understand the context and culture and what was being communicated. Otherwise we will build generalizations on incorrect foundations. Marc helps us to build the foundations first, so we can then build principles based on what God was actually saying to us in his word. The Luke 20:20-26 example was a good one “ render unto Caesar “ .

New Persoective

Marc’s teaching style and attention to facts & details uncover things for me that I had never considered, giving me a new perspective into the Bible.

Make the Bible come ALIVE

I love listening to this podcast! Marc is so smart and studied but relates his knowledge in a way that opens up the beauty of this Ancient Text in a way I can understand. The Bible comes alive in the midst of the time and culture in which it is written. I went on a tour through Israel with him (which you HAVE to do) and when I saw he had a podcast I had to continue my learning from him. You must put this on your listen list!
