The Live Counsel Bible

1/6/2024
Isaiah 9:6 calls Jesus our “wonderful counselor.” In the New Testament, the Holy Spirit is also called “the Counselor.” And though the Bible is filled with theology, history, and poetry, it’s also filled with practical counsel. Are we overlooking biblical counsel for our lives? What if we could read our Bibles with more of an eye toward this counseling aspect? We’ll talk about it…this week on The Land and the Book.
