The “Study in Colossians”

Thank you brother for the way you continue to allow God thru Christ to use you!
I am currently a shut-in, but make it a habit to not miss any of your “Look in the Book” series of teachings.
Truly a blessing, of Him who loves us, thanks again Bill Stuart (Virginia)

I Thank God for John!

And I thank God for this study.
I love how deep into paragraphs and phrases and words that John does. This feeds my soul and answers questions. Sometimes that I didn’t realize I had :-) may God continue to use John for a long time to come.

Such a fun podcast!

Whether you’re a Bible nerd or new to Bible study this is a fun interactive podcast that even gives video of the interpreting process. I like how Pastor John develops the context over the book and gives intertextual answers to the questions that arise. Highly recommend!
