In this episode, Jesus’ Resurrection Part 2, we’re going to learn 3 more facts in support of Jesus’ resurrection. What caused Paul, a persecutor of the early church, to become largely responsible for the spread of the gospel in Asia Minor, Greece and Rome? What caused Jesus’ half-brother James, to go from skeptic, to becoming the leader of the Jerusalem church? And, what are the facts surrounding the empty tomb? Join me as we search for the answers to these questions and more.
The apostle Paul wrote, “AND WITHOUT CONTROVERSY GREAT IS THE MYSTERY OF GODLINESS: GOD WAS MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH…” Paul admits that the incarnation of God in the flesh is a great mystery. It is beyond the range of natural human understanding. Our finite minds cannot grasp with meaningful comprehension how this happened. It can only be known by Divine revelation in the Word of God and illumined by His Holy Spirit. But, “why?” is the question. In episode 17 that is the question that will be addressed: Why did God become a man?
Hi, friends! Did you know that the idea that Jesus never really died on the cross is making a comeback? I’m not kidding. There’s no doubt in the mind of any reasonable person that Jesus was crucified. There’s just too much historical evidence not only in the bible, but also in the writings of historians of the time. Thanks to social media today, this theory has a growing number of followers. In this episode I will be examining the question, “Did Jesus Really Die?” Please help me get the word out.

In Episode 16, I continue exploring the question, “Did Jesus Claim To Be God?” In Episode 15 I explained that Jesus claimed to be the Messiah and Son of God. This time I’ll look at his claim to be the Son of Man and what that meant. Also, I will look at some of Jesus’ teaching that implicitly make the case that his, in fact, God incarnate; God in human bodily form. I hope you will watch.

Did Jesus claim to be God as Christianity teaches? I’m going to break this question down over two episodes. In part one we’re going to examine the following: 1st, did Jesus claim to be the Messiah? If he did, what did that mean? Peter declared, “You are the Christ (Messiah), the Son of the living God.” I’ll break down Jesus’ response to that? At his trial the high priest asked Jesus, “Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?” And what did Jesus answer? What did he mean by that and what are the implications? Has Christianity gotten all wrong for over 2,000 years? 2nd, did Jesus claim to be the Son of God? Or, did that title mean he was just a unique human being? Or did it mean something else entirely? In the parable that Jesus told in Mark 12 we learn what Jesus thought of Himself. Did he really understand that he was God’s only, beloved Son, or that he was just another prophet? Maybe the highest of all prophets? Was he God’s final messenger and the heir to the vineyard; to Israel itself? Does this parable really tell us that Jesus believed and taught that […]
The world has experienced unusual births many times. For example, the Fisher quintuplets were born in South Dakota in 1963. The Stanek sextuplets were born in Colorado in 1973. The Chuckwu octuplets were born in Texas in 1998. And the Gosselin sextuplets were born in Pennsylvania in 2004, born into a family that already had a set of twin girls who were 4 years old at the time. From 6 newborns then to 8 teenagers today living in the same house. Wow! But the only truly unique birth is still the birth of Jesus the Messiah. There has not been, nor will there ever be another birth like his. In Part 3, we’re going to look at another reason why Jesus’ virgin birth is so important: because it’s necessary for our redemption. Without Jesus’ virgin birth there is no possibility for salvation. What do I mean? Let’s see.
The idea of a virgin birth to some people is, AT BEST, highly improbable. Why is the virgin birth, among all the miracles of the Bible, often the most difficult miracle to accept? Why is it more troubling than the thought of Jesus healing the sick, multiplying the loaves and fish, or raising the dead? Could it be that those miracles are not threatening? They benefit the people, so they’re even kind of inspiring. Maybe people see the suffering around them and wish they could do those miracles too? Wouldn’t that be nice? But when it comes to the virgin birth it seems that so many people are offended by the thought because, if it’s true, it has the potential to disrupt their plans, their preferences and their very lives? For many people, that would be a huge inconvenience. The reason it’s an inconvenience is because it’s also evidence of Jesus’ deity. In Part 2 of 3 we’re going to look at the second reason why the virgin birth is so important: it’s evidence of Jesus’ deity.
E12-Jesus’ Virgin Birth Part 1 A well known talk-show host was once asked, “If you could select any one person across all of history to interview, who would it be?” The talk-show host’s answer was that he would like to interview Jesus Christ. When the questioner followed with, “And what would you like to ask him?” the host replied, “I would like to ask him if he was indeed virgin-born. The answer to that question would define history for me.” In this episode, we will examine why Jesus’ Virgin Birth is so Important. This is part 1 of a 3 part series. The 1st reason has to do with the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Please watch. The account of Jesus’ birth is truly remarkable. I think we can agree that if Jesus was born of a virgin, then it definitely defines history… and not just for Larry King, but also for all of humanity. In fact, that singular event is the turning point of history. Please watch.
E11-Miracles: Fact or Fiction? The Bible is filled with miracles. From the creation to the second coming, from Moses at the burning bush to Daniel in the lions’ den, from the Virgin Birth to the resurrection, miraculous happenings seem to fill the pages of Scripture. To the believer, these are a wonderful confirmation of the power and message of God, but to the unbeliever, miracles are a stumbling block—a proof that religion is just a bunch of fairy tales after all. In this episode I’ll examine the question: are miracles fact or fiction?
E10 – When Were The Gospels Written? Part 2 “Are the gospels reliable eyewitnesses of Jesus?” In Part 1 we studied the question, “Were the alleged eyewitnesses present? In Part 2 I’ll examine the question, “When were the gospels written?” To help us to determine the answer, I’ll look at seven key facts. You won’t want to miss this episode.
