Jesus is put to the test in a series of questions about taxes, the resurrection of the dead and the greatest commandment. What does His answer about money tell us about who we are? What does His answer about the resurrection tell us about our identities in the new creation? Why does He bring up commandments they didn't ask about in His answer to the Law. Then Jesus turns the tables and asks a question of His own. Daniel and Erick talk about all of this. Check it out!

Growing up, I dreaded the first Sunday of each quarter. Every time during the evening service, we would have Lord’s Supper after the sermon. It was clockwork, without fail. I dreaded these services because they seemed to always have the same emphasis...
Chad and Daniel discuss the funniest passage in the old testament followed by a very difficult one. Moses questions Aaron about the golden calf. Aaron lies. God offers mercy but not everyone takes it. What does God's reaction to Isreal's idolatry tell us and where are Christ and the gospel in all of this? They talk about these things and more in this episode. Check it out!
If the cross were to happen today, not on Golgotha, but in our own locale, would we take selfies? Instead of a hill, would we display the cross on the far more prominent vista of social media? It’s an abhorrent juxtaposition, but it may not be so far from reality.
“Obey God and he will bless you,” says the wind and the reed is bent over and bruised throughout. “God will never stop loving you but you can disappoint him,” says the wind and the once lit candle is now a sad smoldering wick. “God never gives you anything you can’t handle” says the coffee mug of Pop Christianity and the soul who is barely hanging on is now tapping out.

When I was a kid, punchdrunk in church by all the legalistic blows to my head, I stumbled into a warped state of mind about what’s going to happen when Jesus crashes the world’s party at the end of time. He would squeeze all humanity into this colossal theatre in the sky. And one by one, movies of our lives would be shown on the screen. Unedited.

Americans love the vicarious sense of pride they get from the odds-defying underdog myth. But often, all the attaboy-ing translates to spiritual performance and a definition of sin that is closer to good intentions gone awry than war against the maker of the universe.
Before Moses smashes the 10 commandments and makes the people drink their idol, he has a strange discussion with God. Can you change God's mind? How do we appeal to God? How is Moses not only a type of the Law but also a type of Christ? Chad and Daniel are talking about all of those things in this episode. Check it out!
I don’t know about you, but when I go through something difficult, I find myself wanting to vent. Sometimes I vent to my wife, sometimes I vent to a friend, and sometimes I even vent to God in prayer. But is that okay? It is it acceptable to vent to God? I have come across people that say “No.”

It is the evil eye, you see – the eye that loves the darkness of its bookkeeper’s black ink, the eye that cannot stand the red ink of unsuccess as it appears in the purple light of grace. Bookkeeping is the only punishable offense in the kingdom of heaven. For in that happy state, the books are ignored forever, and there is only the Book of life.
I’m going to begin at the beginning. But which one? Birth? Kindergarten? My first drink? The first time I had sex? High school graduation? The first time I smoked a joint? The first time I tried to kill myself? Conversion? Baptism? Marriage? My first-born? Ordination? Which beginning do I begin with?
Jesus tells two stories foreshadowing Israel's rejection of Him and His death. There is much about vineyards, dead Prophets, wedding feasts and imputed righteousness going on and the scandal of God's plan to save the world is on full display. Daniel and Erick talk about it all in this episode. Check it out!
The salvation of wretched sinners by an omni-holy and forever-righteous God is, by all accounts, a categorical impossibility. The logic of righteousness insists as much, not permitting even the smallest ounce of sin to blemish the remarkable majesty of the Lord’s perfection.
Chad and Daniel are back in Exodus. Since everyone is religious at heart the people corner Aaron in Moses' absence and demand a God to worship. Gold is pulled off the ears of the people and the most famous idol in the Bible is fashioned. It's an odd yet common thing to have the right God's name but the wrong god altogether. There is a lot to talk about in these 6 verses. Have a listen!
Perhaps your Facebook and Twitter feeds have been full of depictions of Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the Castle Church door in Wittenberg, or awkward pictures of pastors dressed in monk attire wielding a hammer and the like. What they probably haven’t been full of is pictures of a wild-eyed Jesus, flipping over tables, and driving people out of the temple with a whip.
Creeping through the house was a cunning art. Taking a single step was a strategic game to avoid creaks in the wooden floorboards. The goal was to maneuver through the house unnoticed. Any sound or change in shadows elicited alarm. There was nowhere to hide, every inch of the haunted house left visitors open and vulnerable to eyes prowling around in the shadows.
On October 19-21, 500 people gathered in San Diego to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. This event presented by 1517 the Legacy Project, was full of incredible teaching, music, food, and fellowship. The media will be released in a few weeks but until then here is a photo recap of some of what happened those three days.
A cursed fig tree, faith to do anything, mounts being thrown into the sea and the rejection of John the Baptizer. How are all of these things connected? Daniel and Erick are back from the conference in San Diego and ready to talk through all of this. Check it out!
This podcast was recorded live Here We Still Stand Conference in San Diego, California. Chad Bird, Daniel Emery Price and Erick Sorenson discuss Isaiah 61 and Luke 4. The guys had a blast recording this. Have a listen!

The protestant reformation took place 500 years ago this month as a result of false teaching that was sending the church running off to secure their salvation through good works – which not unlike my episode on that hike, starts you running down a path that proves utterly impossible to keep up.
I’ve always been a very passionate person. Adventure is my favorite thing. Adventure where? Anywhere. I’ll do it. I’ll go there. I love to discover and push limits. When someone even implies I can’t do something, I prove them wrong. I’ve never been satisfied with simply existing.

Luke tells us that Jesus told the parable to “some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and treated others with contempt.” It is important to remember that that isn’t two groups of people- such as: Over here are the people who are self-righteous and over here are the ones who treat others with contempt.
BY MARTIN LUTHER
We should steadfastly maintain our teaching so that we never let any work take credit for gaining the favor and grace of God, for liberating us from sin, and for bringing us to heaven. My merit is worthless for this.
For years, I insisted to the doctors and people around me that I was suffering some sort of physical disease. The running thoughts in my head, the headaches, the lump on my neck that turned out to be completely benign, the constant acid reflux that I thought was throat cancer

My parents will be the first to tell you, I can really put my foot in my mouth. I often don’t say the right thing. Often times, I can frustrate Allyson because I try to hunt for just the right words for the situation. Different people interpret words differently.
Two blind men see without sight. People shout "Hosanna" as Jesus rides into Jerusalem. Why is this text so important and what is going on behind that strange word? Jesus makes His way to the temple and things get shaken up before we see His mercy on full display again. Reformation always gets pushback. Daniel and Erick will explain why. Have a listen!
God created Israel to be the vessel into which he would place both his Law and his Son. He gave them, first, his Law, which revealed what it was that God required. The Israelites believed that God had chosen them to demonstrate a life of obedience to his Law, but the truth, which they did not understand, was that they were specifically chosen by God to reveal to the world the reality that they could not obey.

In the face of all the misunderstandings on the part of the world and all the errors which have arisen within Christendom, let us make this point absolutely clear: the task of the church in the world consists uniquely and alone in the preaching of the Word of God and in administering the Sacrament.

All manner of theologians, philosophers, and historians have used more ink and paper than can be weighed to expound upon the incarnation of the Son of God and its implications for humanity. Of those, Johann Gerhard composed, what I believe to be, the most remarkable.
I have this really terrible habit. A habit that involves my car and days-old coffee and a willpower so weak that nine out of ten coffee cups get left behind. A habit whose repercussions aren’t so awful when you consider the fact that most days my car smells like classic vanilla Coffee Mate...
