    S 14 Ep 1: One Man’s Faith Journey (Part One)

    S 14 Ep 1: One Man’s Faith Journey (Part One)

    In this episode, we explore the origins of Christianity and its relationship to Judaism. We talk with Mark Meckler about his faith journey, including the search that got him to Jesus, the questions he had in the beginning, and some of the practices he developed to help him along the way. Christians are meant to ask questions. Following Jesus is not about figuring it all out, but about being in relationship with the Divine. Faith is not about having all of the answers, it is about believing, having courage, and giving life your best effort.

    S 14 Ep 3: What is Evangelism?

    S 14 Ep 3: What is Evangelism?

    In this episode, we dive into the question: what is evangelism? The best way to express the gospel to others is to live it out in one’s own life. This is the message of Scripture, from the Shema in Deuteronomy 6 to 1 Peter 3 and The Book of Hebrews. This kind of witness speaks volumes and is much more effective than being preached at or argued with. Stewarding life well is especially difficult in times of pain, sadness, and uncertainty. As difficult as these times can be, they are also fertile ground for making known the truth of the gospel.

    S 14 Ep 4: Where Do I Start Reading The Bible?

    If you are new to Christianity, you might find it overwhelming to open up your bible. There are so many books in the Bible, so many questions, and so many ideas. Where is the best place to begin? The key is just to start. There is no definitive right place to begin, just about anywhere will do. In this episode, we discuss some ideas of where to begin, as well as some processes and perspectives to keep in mind as you learn. At the end of the day, the key is to start. Don’t overthink it. Don’t stress about whether you are doing it right. Just try. There is value everywhere you turn.

    S 14 Ep 5: How is the Bible Organized

    If you’re new to Christianity, you may notice the Bible is full of a lot of different kinds of books and that the Christian religion has some really unique and sometimes confusing terms. In this episode, we talk through different sections of the Bible, including the Law (or Torah), the Gospels, the Prophets, and the New Testament letters. We discuss what is different about each of these and why is the Bible full of such diverse literary expressions. We also dissect some of the unique Christian terms and discover both their value and hindrances. By addressing these questions, both new and established Christians can help unravel some of the obstacles to effectively reading the Bible and engaging with their faith.

We will help you unravel some of the confusions and distractions, freeing you to participate in what The Bible calls “the life that is truly life”. According to The Bible, true life is one lived in obedience to the spirit rather than bondage to the flesh.
