Well this is embarrassing.

We’re living in the end times. We have been since Pentecost. The earliest Christians believed it, and what’s more, that is what the apostles teach us in Scripture. As early as Acts 2:17, just after Jesus had ascended to heaven and poured out his Spirit on His church…
Chad and Daniel talk about the significance of hair in the Bible. They explore one of the best benedictions in scripture. Is this Aaron’s benediction or God’s? What are the Trinitarian implications in this blessing? They discuss why certain passages are well known and the power of the spoken word of God. Have a listen!
On September 15th we held a City Event in Hattiesburg, Mississippi at Saint Johns Lutheran Church. It was an incredible day of teaching, singing and fellowship. We are so grateful for all who came out. We will be releasing the content over the next few weeks but in the meantime here is a photo recap of the event.
For the past twenty years that I've been a Christian, I've not found any evidence in my reading of Judges 13-16 that qualifies Samson for the "book of faith" (Hebrews 11). Selfish, manipulative, short-tempered, and homicidally violent, Samson's a borderline-psychotic personality.
Paul and Silas are singing in prison when an earthquake opens all the doors. A jailer wants to kill himself but ends up baptizing his family instead. They go back to the prison but Paul has a plan to put fear into the authorities and secure their release. We are introduced to a man named Jason who helps Paul and Silas escape persecution brought on by false accusations. And is the church an institution or a movement? Daniel and Erick discuss all of this. Have a listen!

The radical gospel of justification by faith alone simply does not fit, cannot be accepted by, and will not work with an anthropology which sees the human being as a continuously existing subject possessing ‘‘free choice of will’’ over against God and/or other religious goals.

If I were the devil, I wouldn’t just entice believers to do bad things. We’re experts at that anyway. I’d strongly encourage them to do more for God. Just a gentle nudge in that direction. And before you know it, some of them would be so hog-wild about doing stuff for Jesus…
Right now (and I would add, for quite some time) there has been a debate within Christianity about the whole issue of culture. What I mean is if you open up any Christian magazine or website, chances are you are going to find thoughtful (and unthoughtful) Christians dealing with the question of how we are to deal with the culture around us.
Chad and Daniel tackle one of the stranger texts in the Old Testament. When a husband suspects his wife of adultery a ritual is put forth to find out the truth. It involves drinking dirt and ink and a curse. What is going on here? Why would God set something like this up? How does the way Jesus handles accusations of adultery help us with this text? They then move on and discuss the Nazirite Vow. Have a listen!
There was a TV show back in the ‘90s called “Dinosaurs” that I used to sneak into the living room at night to watch. The reason I had to sneak-watch this show was that my loving and protective parents had a problem with the Baby in the show who was very disrespectful (albeit hilarious).
BY MARTIN LUTHER
This is one of the best and most glorious Gospel lessons, such as John particularly wrote. It is worthy to be written in golden letters, not upon paper, but if possible upon the heart; it ought to be made the daily lesson and meditation of Christians, who should repeat it to strengthen their faith.
Chad and Daniel discuss the role of priests, Levites and moving of the temple. What is the connection between the Levites and the Passover? Why is the language of "firstborn" so significant in scripture? What does this tell us about the priesthood of all believers? And how do they end up at the parable of the Good Samaritan? Have a listen!
Paul and Barnabas separate in a dispute over John Mark. Timothy is introduced and for some reason Paul has him circumcised. God tells them not to preach in Asia. A woman is baptized along with her entire household. And casting out a demon gets Paul and the boys beaten and thrown in prison. Daniel and Erick discuss all this and more. Have a listen!
We can pretend that we’re not sinful all day long. But coming face to face with the thrice holy God clears things up in a hurry. Suddenly, there is no place left to hide, no way to disguise our sin, no device or scheme left to excuse us.
Christians have long enjoyed an absurd love affair with white-washing biblical saints. Since the earliest days of the Church, saints have been held up as role models for great faith and godly behavior. From the Old Testament, for example, Abraham is often held up by Sunday School teachers and adult bible study leaders as a role-model.
Chad and Daniel begin the book of Numbers. They talk about what to expect as they work through this book. Why does Israel number their warriors? What does this have to do with the church militant and church triumphant? How does the beginning of Numbers point to the incarnation? Have a listen!

As a bass player, when I listen to music, I listen for what the bassist is doing. But, when I listen to music in my 2004 Honda Civic I have a problem: only one of the four speakers works. Everything I listen to is panned to the left, leaving my favorite songs sounding hallow and half-empty.
To see God would actually consume you in your current state. Entirely. There would be nothing left. “No one can see God and live.” This was their tradition. It was utterly impossible to see God. For if one did, they were dead. And so how can one see God and yet live? They could not conceive of a way..
It happened instantaneously. His beloved teacher had just washed his feet. Hours earlier he reclined at the table with his Lord and recalled the Passover. Now, his regret was beyond comprehension. Everyone and everything around him disappeared as the Lord turned and caught his eye.
The early church battles legalism as the Gentiles are brought in. A council is formed and Peter takes a stand. James agrees but has some "lesser requirements." Did they get it right? Did Paul correct it later? How does the culture of the day play into this? Is it really safe to add anything to the gospel? Daniel and Erick discuss all of this. Have a listen!
We are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses. But, who are these witnesses, what do they witness to, and what does it mean to be surrounded by a great cloud of them? What do we find in this “cloud”? The “who” is simple enough. We just need to look one chapter prior in Hebrews.
Chad and Daniel wrap up the book of Leviticus. It seems like a strange ending but there are things to learn. How did the end of this book play out in the early church? How do they end up at Ananias and Sapphira? Thanks for joining us for this book and get ready for Numbers!
What might we say is the significance of John addressing Revelation to the seven churches that are in Asia? It does two things. First, it grounds it in reality. This gives the book credibility as attested to by the naming of actual places and actual churches residing in those places.
