We Shall Not All Sleep

We have all experienced falling asleep at night and waking up in the morning refreshed to start a new day. God uses sleep and awakening as a metaphor in the Bible to describe death. Aaron McKee and Tim Young go through this essential Bible study on sleep and how it has a wonderful message of hope beyond death. Our key verse is from 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, “Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.”

Every Word of God is Pure

This is part three of our three-part series on the inspiration of the Bible. In this episode, we look at how the Bible describes itself as “innerant”. This is not a word that we use too often and neither does the Bible. The Scriptures have different ways of talking about it though. Tim Young and Jay Mayock look at three key passages that talk about the purity of God’s word and how important they are for our outlook on studies of the Bible.

All Scripture is God Breathed

This is the second part of a three-part series on the inspiration of the Bible. This one is about the scriptures, the written word of God. How did the spoken word of God come to be written down? Jay Mayock and Tim Young continue with this all-important subject discussing how the true inspiration of the Bible is under attack today and how we have to study our Bibles to know what it claims for itself.

God Spoke…

The basis of all our studies is that the Bible is the Word of God. What does it mean that the Bible is inspired by God? What does the Bible say for itself on this question? Jay Mayock joins Tim Young to begin this three-part series on the inspiration of God. In this first part, we’ll see how God spoke through angels, prophets and the Lord Jesus Christ.

First Natural, Then Spiritual

Season 2 starts where we left off last season with the question, “Where is Genesis 2:7 quoted in the New Testament?” This leads on a journey to understand Paul’s message about the resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15. Along the way, our Bible study reveals to us the meaning of the word “soul” and its connection with Psalm 49. Listen in as Tim Young and Steven Macfarlane discuss this essential Bible study.

Season 2 Trailer

Here we go! We’re queuing up season 2 with some wonderful new Bible studies. Listen in as we go through what to expect for our new season starting in January 2020.

The Creation of Man

We hit a Bible speed bump when we come to Genesis 2:7.  Stephen Macfarlane joins Tim Young to explain what a Bible speed bump is and why this small verse is so essential. We learn a lot about our Creator and ourselves in the process.

The Good Fight of the Faith

This is our fourth and final episode on faith. This time its about “the faith”. Tim Young and Brian Alexander start off with some data visualization on the word faith. This leads them into an unexpected area of Paul’s epistles that concentrate on “the faith”.

The Faith that Saves

Our studies in “faith” continue with this important podcast on how faith saves. Stephen Macfarlane and Tim Young begin at the starting point of Genesis 15:6. This verse is so vital that it is quoted three times in the New Testament. We draw lessons from each New Testemant passage learning about justification by faith and how faith is to be seen in our works.
