12/12/2018
More
We read books, we listen to music, we watch TV shows and movies all the while keeping into account the particular genre they belong to. Genres set our expectaions and help us understand what we are consuming.

However the majority of us are not aware of Biblical genres and therefore we end up missunderstanding or missinterpreting Scripture. Starting with...

11/14/2018
More
As Christians we can live lives that are ritualistic. We know things we have to do to be faithful, the places we need to be and the times we need to show up at. This can create a life in which we are constantly wondering, "Am I doing enough?" This is the place in which Keith Winship, minister at the Clemson Foothills Church, found himself in. A place that unintentionally led him to live a life in which he was constantly pursuing God's favor and never felt like he did enough to earn it....

Jesus and the Temple Pt3

8/23/2018
More
As the disciples admire the temple, Jesus tells them that soon there will not be a stone left of the temple.

Jesus at the Temple Pt1

When Jesus comes to Jerusalem, all of his activity revolves around the Temple. Including turning over of tables, driving people out of the temple courts and in chapter 13 of Mark prophesying about the destruction of the once magnificent building. One of the reasons why the men of the Sanhedrin seek to kill the so called Messiah is because of what he says and the actions he takes around the temple. The magnitude and breath of his actions can be lost on us if we do not understand the deep...

Our society seems to make less and less of the issue of divorce. In Mark 10:1-12 the Pharisees approach Jesus about the topic, which was much more of a big deal in their time. Jesus teaching on divorce can seem strict and narrow. Fact that creates a lot of controversy in Christian circles. Join as we discuss this topic in part one of a two part series. In this episode we explore the greater context of divorce in Jewish culture, ours and what Jesus teaching on the topic ultimately teaches...

After revealing to his disciples for the first time that he is going to die, Jesus takes Peter, James and John up on a mountain where he is transfigured.
