AWESOME Podcast!

I just love hearing a podcast that measures art through scripture! Michelle does a FANtastic job reaffirming, reflecting, and reminding us about scripture through the Christian songs we hear on the radio (is that still a thing, 😂). Michelle is faithful to spreading the good news of Jesus Christ through her careful study of scripture related to us through music.

HIGHLY recommend this podcast as an addition to your STUDY of scripture. Michelle even offers some GREAT tips for HOW to better study scripture that will add insight and understanding for the novice to the seasoned elder. Be blessed through Michelle’s work, y’all!

Definitely more than a song!

This podcast speaks to my heart. Connecting the songs I listen to and worship with, to the Word of God is very enriching. Michelle Nezat’s Bible Study method of B.I.T.E. is very much how I like to study the Word. Variety, multiple sources, context, cross references, definitions…all these and more. Episode #473 challenged me and connected the song to a portion of scripture I hadn’t considered - David moving the Ark using his preferences, not God’s preferences. Now to look at my life and see and see where I have used my preferences and not sought God about His preferences!

Very Enjoyable!

Just found this podcast! You very thoroughly analyze popular modern Christian songs and use Scripture to back up your statements. All I have to say is Hallelujah! Praise God! God Bless your ministry abundantly!
