Colossians Introduction

12/2/2020
Colossians tells us that Jesus is the center of reality. The church at Colossae kept believing that their truest self was found in certain religious, physical, or spiritual practices. If they just fasted, if they just experienced God in a particular way, or if they celebrated a particular festival, then they would be whole. Seth and David talk about how Jesus is enough. In Christ, the fullness of God, wholeness, and spiritual lives. Whatever we want in this reality, can be found in Jesus....

Kings Introduction

11/19/2020
The book of Kings gives us an overview of Israel's monarchy. But it's less about Israel's kingly history and more about God's prophetic message to save Israel.

Seth and David talk about the book of Kings as prophetic literature designed to help us see that there can only be one King–Jesus. Thank you so much for listening!

The 2020 American election happened two days ago. While we often see elections as a time to secure for ourselves some new degree of power or freedom God sits in heaven and laughs.

Joshua 22-24: Joshua Dies

10/15/2020
Before Joshua dies there is a misunderstanding between the tribes on either side of the Jordan. It reveals that spiritual pride and insecurity are features of life in Israel under Joshua's leadership. This leads Joshua to say that it will be impossible for Israel to fully obey God. Israel should expect judgment. Seth and David talk about the end of Joshua's life and how spiritual pride, insecurity, and promises of judgment are all overturned by Jesus' superior leadership. Thank you so much...

Joshua 9-10:28: The Sun Stands Still
