    Matthew 5:10-12 - Reviled and Rewarded

    In this episode of Dr. Steven Lawson's Bible study, he delves into the profundity of the Beatitudes, specifically focusing on the blessings that come with persecution for righteousness' sake.

Greatly Edified by this Bible study.

I am presently studying Romans with this group via this podcast. I just completed chapter 8:19-22 and I must say that this is the best Bible study I have the pleasure of listening to that breaks down each and every passage with such insightfulness and depth and passion as Dr. Lawson does. I became a born again believer 30+ years ago and this the first time I am experiencing a person of God dissect the Gospel as Dr. Steven Lawson does. Thank you for your teaching and inspiration in God’s word to us listeners. I am listening from Northern New Jersey, USA. Miriam 02/26/2024
