The mission of Spoken Gospel is to equip the church to speak the gospel out of every corner of scripture. Co-hosts and close friends, David Bowden and Seth Stewart, sit down every week to talk through a Bible passage and see how it points us to Jesus.
Malachi Overview: What's the Deal with John the Baptist?
Malachi ends by predicting that a "messenger" will come to prepare the way for God himself to arrive. That messenger is John the Baptist. Seth and David talk about why John the Baptist is so important and how John is the fulfillment of all the promises God made to the tribe of Levi
Malachi Overview: God's Last Sermon for 400 Years
Malachi is the last book of many of our Bibles. And it's the last words God's people have from God until Jesus arrives. Seth and David talk about the good news of God's love and the good news that God is willing to argue with his people.
Matthew 2: Out of Egypt I Called Jesus
Just like God got Israel out of Egypt, God takes Jesus out of Israel. Seth and David continue to explore their hunch that Matthew is repeating Israel's history in Jesus' life.
Matthew 2: King Joseph, and Wise Kings from the East
Matthew seems to understand Joseph as a type of king, in the same vein as Joseph from the book of Genesis. The Magi too are types of kings who offer there treasures as proof that God's plan to bless the world is coming true. Seth and David continue to talk about how Matthew read his Old Testament and why it's good news that Jesus is the son of kings like Joseph.
Matthew 1: Why a Virgin Birth?
Why is a virgin birth important? What's on the line if Jesus had a physical dad? And what does it mean for Jesus to be called Emmanuel, God with us? Seth and David continue their journey to read their Old Testament like Matthew does, and try to figure out why it's good news that Jesus was born of a virgin.
Matthew 1: Why Genealogies Are Awesome
Genealogies aren't lists of names, they are works of art. Matthew's genealogy is expertly designed. It catapults you into the past and prepares you for everything that Jesus does in Matthew's Gospel.
Matthew Ch. 3?
I have enjoyed the Matthew podcasts they are a blessing but what happened to Matthew Ch. 3? At the end of the “Out of Egypt” episode we were told there would be another podcast on Matthew ch. 3 with John the Baptist but it didn’t drop. Was this a mistake? Just thought I’d bring this to your attention. Thanks!
The book of Esther what an epic book!
You guys did a wonderful job unpacking this fabulous story. You brought up things that I’ve never even thought of before. God used your gifts to reveal himself to me in a very special way. Thank you!
Love your podcasts!
I’m currently listening to the 1 John series and it has really helped me understand the context of John’s letter. I love listening to your podcasts and devotional videos on the YouVersion Bible App! I’ve been studying the Old Testament and am currently finishing up 1 Kings. Your devotional videos have helped me understand the Bible better and have helped me see Jesus in ALL of scripture. You have definitely helped me grow in my faith in God as a teen. I’ve enjoyed your humor as well but most of all, your humble love for God. Thank you David and Seth for all your videos. God bless!
