Books which describe the life and teachings of Jesus
In one of Jesus' most famous parables in the Gospels, He told the disciples to abide in Him. The imagery is as powerful as it is poignant. Join us this week as we teach through John 15.1-11 and Jesus as the Vine, believers as the branches.
Many treat evangelism like a spectator sport, preferring to leave it to the “professionals.” Jesus' command, however, was for all believers.

Apology for last week's rant. God's Kingdom is greater than any nation in this world. His rule is just. We see through a mirror dimly. The roles of politics and the church are different and require different skills, talents and gifts. Some can be learned, others are relational. Don't envy someone who is called to be a politician. They have hard choices to make. From war to social security, politicians are involved in the regulation and administration of all aspects of the nation. Those choices are not easy.Choices in the church are difficult too. We deal with life and death issues as well, but they are more important as they affect a person's eternal destiny.Read TextExplain text:Bring in the leaders of the JewsAppoint a day when many come to hearConclude with the calling of Isaiah – the difference of cultures does not negate the power of the Gospel, nor the work of the Holy Spirit!Continues to welcome all who come to him in captivityThe future growth of the church is secureWhat do we glean from this:This is the testimony of how the Holy Spirit works, in every culture and in every place. This is a testimony to the faithfulness of God to keep his promises to all who seek him and call upon his name. This is a clear view of how not all respond favorably to the transformation required by those who believeKnowing this, how do we continue writing the end of Acts in our lives? What is the Holy Spirit doing in this place? How if Father wanted to spread the Gospel message throughout this community? What will happen if we declare Jesus as the Messiah? Some will listen and some won't. How do we continue to despite the hindrances in our way? You might not be in chains, but there are other things that limit our abilities to share about Jesus. How do we continue the work entrusted to us?What do we do? Love, forgive, show hospitality.Let those who go, go. The work of the Holy Spirit is to convict of sin, righteousness, and judgement to come. Let him do his job. Focus on those who want to know more and grow in God. Don't be a parent to them, but someone who can open the scriptures to them and be life giving! Verses:“All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar's household.”Philippians 4:22 “Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descendant of David, according to my gospel, for which I suffer hardship even to imprisonment as a criminal; but the word of God is not imprisoned. For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus and with it eternal glory.” 2 Timothy 2:8-10 “Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your guilt is taken away and atonement is made for your sin.” Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”” Isaiah 6:6-8 “Now it came about in the days of Ahaz, that Rezin the king of Aram … went up to Jerusalem to wage war against it, but could not conquer it. Isaiah speaks to Ahaz: Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and she will name Him Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:1, 14“and pray in my behalf, that speech may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” Ephesians 6:19-20
Some of Satan's most destructive footholds are found within the borders of "Christian Doctrines." But there is no plural for Christian doctrine. The only things that are indeed "Christian" are the true things. There's only one truth; everything else is a foothold for satan. Today, we will confront a popular "Christian" doctrine that has produced massive rebellion, fear, heartache, confusion, and rejection. I am talking about the Calvinistic doctrine of election.❤️ SHOW YOUR SUPPORT - LINKS BELOW...➡️ DONATE ➡️ Join our team!https://www.givesendgo.com/karlgesslerfamilybandhttps://www.patreon.com/karlgesslerSocial Media➡️Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100089357625739➡️Telegram - https://t.me/FaithoftheFathers➡️Truth Social - https://truthsocial.com/@UCLOvq6O4aIXLrkKxwXkq3uA ➡️Gab - https://gab.com/KarlGesslerSupport the show

Hi, I'm John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you're listening to Share Life Today. Joshua was just a child. There was no way he could be able to talk to others about his faith! Or at least, that's what he thought. But then something amazing happened...he was discipled in a Hope for Kids training in India during a Sunday school class. Shortly after the training, Joshua had the idea to draw two question marks on his t-shirt. The question marks represented two important, diagnostic questions that he could ask to begin sharing the Gospel. His father says that a flame ignited in Joshua's heart. “He went on a rampage asking the two questions to everyone he met." And this led to many discussions about Jesus, where many made a decision to trust in Jesus. Joshua was not only able to share with his peers, but also had the opportunity to share with adults. At such a young age, wherever Joshua goes, the Gospel goes with him. Sharing the Good News is for everyone! For more, visit www.sharelife.today.
[The text of the pieces of music in this audio file can be accessed at https://www.stpauls.co.uk/sites/default/files/2023-09/Texts%20and%20Tranlations.pdf] Mary the mother of Jesus is a polarising figure. Is she Queen of Heaven, the New Eve, an ordinary person called to do extraordinary things, the ultimate good girl, a feminist foremother, or is her story altogether more complex? She is also the subject of countless paintings, poems and works of music, sometimes overlaying our sense of her presence in the Bible. Rowan Williams considers contrasting aspects of Mary's story in the Gospels and the church, her place in our faith, and why she still matters so much. Dr Rowan Williams is a poet and theologian, and was the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury.
What is the difference between religion and the gospel? Greg Bryan and Jim Reske discuss Luke 18:9-14. 9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.'14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

Men's Conference | Jon Rouleau | BreakoutWhat does Scripture actually say about gender? The god of our society is our feelings, and thus anything that goes against your feelings is oppressive. These are lies that are contrary to Scripture. In this session, Jon Rouleau walks through 5 things that we can learn about gender and design from Genesis 1. God creates on purpose and He created you on purpose. You were created in the image of God and have intrinsic value. We're called to respond to culture today with compassion and empathy towards all of humanity even if they aren't walking with God.

Servant leadership is a very trendy topic these days, but practically speaking it's one of the hardest things to do.Tim Tucker, Author of Grab a Towel: Christ-Centered Leadership for the 21st Century, has been through tremendous hardships in his life. Somehow, God has empowered him through those times of overwhelming grief and hardship to continually don the towel of servant leadership. Tim shares his compelling story of God's faithfulness in his life and how, often in spite of himself, the Lord used him to foster a movement in Africa. He credits his impact to the "steel spine" God provided him.Tim lives in Cape Town, South Africa and has a PhD in Practical Theology from North West University. In 2013 Tim joined The Message Trust, founding the first international hub of The Message in Cape Town, South Africa. They officially launched The Message South Africa in February 2014 with a focus on reaching tough urban youth through Gospel-centred and holistic discipleship programmes.In 2023, Tim joined the Message global development team and is responsible for the African region.Tim is passionate about Africa and, in particular, investing in African leaders. His first book, The Pace Setter, was published by Message Books in 2014. The second book, Grab a Towel: Christ-centered leadership for the 21st century, was released in May 2018. In 2019 he released an autobiographical book called Grief and Grace tracking his journey through the loss of his late wife. Tim is currently married to Christina and they have four children.RESOURCES:GrabATowel.siteGrab A Towel: Christ-Centered Servant Leadership for the 21st CenturyTheMessageTrust.org.zaTwitter.com/TimTuckerSAFacebook.com/timtuckerSAInstagram.com/timtuckersaContact Mike Hatch: email@example.comOrder Mike's book, Manhood: Empowered by the Light of the GospelJoin the Empowered Manhood Facebook GroupCLC Website: https://www.clchq.org/Contact Chris Bolinger: https://chrisbolinger.com/author/Chris' Devotionals:Daily Strength for Men: A 365-Day Devotional52 Weeks of Strength for Men
Do you ever get overwhelmed in regards to the Bible? Why should I study it? Why should I read it? And besides that - there's hundreds of versions, so which one is the right one to read? Why are there so many versions? How do I choose?? How do I get the most out of reading the Bible? These are common questions, and we thought we'd kick off the third season of our podcast looking at these things.

Often, we think of wasting money or time, but today, we want to challenge your perspective on wastefulness. Sometimes, we squander things far more precious than money or time, things of immense value. Today, we discuss the right and wrong views of wastefulness through the lens of an intriguing biblical narrative.The Plot to Arrest JesusOur story begins with the backdrop of the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread. The religious leaders, the chief priests, and the teachers of the law are scheming to arrest Jesus secretly and kill Him. However, they fear a public uprising if they act during the festival. This passage reveals their malevolent intentions and the gravity of the situation.The Sacrifice of MaryIn this narrative, we encounter an act of profound devotion. A woman, identified as Mary in other Gospel accounts, anoints Jesus with a costly alabaster jar of pure nard. This act is significant because it defies convention. Normally, hosts would use a small drop of such expensive perfume, but Mary breaks the jar and pours the entire contents on Jesus, an extravagant and sacrificial gesture.Criticism and SacrificeWhat follows is crucial. Mary's selfless act is met with harsh criticism, primarily from Judas Iscariot, one of Jesus' disciples. He questions the value of this "waste" and suggests the perfume could have been sold to benefit the poor. However, John's Gospel provides insight into Judas' motives, as he was a thief entrusted with the disciples' money.Jesus' PerspectiveJesus, on the other hand, defends Mary's actions, stating that the poor will always be present, but He will not. He commends her for her beautiful and sacrificial act, recognizing that she has anointed Him for burial.Honoring SacrificeMary's sacrifice is a powerful reminder that acts of devotion for the Lord may be met with criticism from others, even within the church. However, her story also illustrates that the Lord sees and honors such sacrifices. Jesus proclaimed that wherever the gospel is preached, Mary's act will be remembered.The Ultimate SacrificeIn a twist of irony, it was Judas who labeled Mary's act as wasteful, yet he would soon waste his own life. Judas would betray Jesus for a mere thirty pieces of silver, an unimaginable loss in exchange for a paltry gain.A Call to SacrificeIn light of these events, we are called to reflect on the ultimate sacrificeSupport the showFurther Discipleship Training Courses Free at;linkedin.com/in/jeremy-mccandless-68353b16Podcast Archive also athttps://www.youtube.com/c/JeremyRMcCandlessThe LIFE Podcast - The Bible Project | FacebookMy Amazon Author Pageamazon.com/author/jeremymccandlessJeremy McCandless is creating podcasts and devotional resources | PatreonHelp us continue making great content for listeners everywhere.https://thebibleproject.buzzsprout.com

Dr. Dallas Willard wrote "The most important thing in your life is not what you do; it's who you become." According to Jesus' own word, the only way that truly happens is when we are born from above. Jesus did not mean some kind of ephemeral, philosophical, state of mind, he meant that we need to be supernaturally reborn through the Spirit, empowered by his sacrificial, vicarious death and resurrection. This is the Gospel he, himself, prescribed. But that presupposes that life is precious - not just to the individual, but to the One who started it all. The sad fact of the matter is that neo-darwinianism, based solely on naturalist phenomenon, will always render one towards nihilism: nothing matters. That is the opposite of good news. Who can - literally - live with that? In this fourth installment of The Fourth Word, Rick discusses the topic of the specialness, holiness, and consequence of life that began with God. You are not an accident or an abberation: you are prized and preferred by Majesty and are uniquely designed and lovingly created for His purpose! Don't forget to check out the special links below!

Hi, I'm John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you're listening to Share Life Today. Christianity has always been just one generation from extinction. I mean — think about it. All it takes is for one generation to drop the ball for the next generation to miss the opportunity to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. They cannot pass along what they do not have. And it can happen in just one generation. In Judges 2, an entire generation grew up not knowing the Lord and what He had done for nation of Israel, because the previous generation did not pass it along. So what do we do? How can we engage the younger generation with the Gospel in a way that's real and personal? Well firstly, we can start by giving children and young adults a strong foundation in the Gospel. And secondly, we can allow them be an integral part in building God's Kingdom right now by helping them share the most exciting gift that they have: their faith. For more on discipling the next generation, visit www.sharelife.today.

[if this looks familiar to you, see explanation here] Sometimes scholars go on a search for “the historical Jesus”. They start with the Gospels, then subtract everything that seems magical or implausible, then declare whatever's left to be the truth. The Alexander Romance is what happens when you spend a thousand years running this process in reverse. Each generation, you make the story of Alexander the Great a little wackier. By the Middle Ages, Alexander is fighting dinosaurs and riding a chariot pulled by griffins up to Heaven. People ate it up. The Romance stayed near the top of the best-seller lists for over a thousand years. Some people claim (without citing sources) that it was the #2 most-read book of antiquity and the Middle Ages, after only the Bible. The Koran endorses it, the Talmud embellishes it, a Mongol Khan gave it rave reviews. While historians and critics tend to use phrases like “contains nothing of historic or literary value”, this was the greatest page-turner of the ancient and medieval worlds. https://www.astralcodexten.com/p/book-review-the-alexander-romance

Ever wondered how the Duck Commander himself, Phil Robertson, became a Christian? Millions of fans came to know and love Phil Robertson and the entire Duck Dynasty clan during the show's 11-season run, where the family's Christian faith remained on full display without compromise. But now that the Duck Commander's backstory is about to hit the big screen, how can longtime supporters of the show contribute to the success of the upcoming film? In anticipation of the brand-new biopic, 'The Blind', Phil and Al Robertson join Frank to talk about Phil's radical transformation from the "biggest heathen in south Arkansas" to born-again Christian, millionaire, podcaster, and reality TV star. 'The Blind' tells the raw, unvarnished truth of the life of Phil and the Robertson family before Phil's conversion and how the Gospel redeemed him from a life that nearly destroyed his family. During the episode, Frank and the Robertsons discuss topics like: How did Phil react to his onscreen portrayal? How did becoming millionaires impact the Robertson family? What are some of the powerful themes depicted in the film? What projects are Phil and Al Robertson working on now that Duck Dynasty is no longer in production? Not a Christian film, but a film showcasing the Christian worldview, 'The Blind' will appeal to both Christian and non-Christian audiences. If God can reach someone like Phil, why not the prodigals in your life? Be sure to take yourself and a friend to go see 'The Blind' in theaters THIS WEEKEND (September 28-30th), so that it can stay in the box office for weeks to come! At the very end of the episode, Frank also takes time to address a listener's question about Hell. To view the entire VIDEO PODCAST be sure to join our CrossExamined private community.

A common rebuttal to the need theory concept is that we need love. I understand the perspective, but the truth is that we need a relationship with God; if we have that, and our relationship with Him is proper, our demands on other humans to meet our cravings for love should not control us. If we are practically realizing and resting in the gospel, we can turn the tables on all our relationships; rather than being deficient takers, we can be abundant givers. We can love others rather than expect others to meet our desires for love. We will be Christlike: the way to get is to give.

This is the least appetizing of titles, but I want to talk to you about a theology of singleness. I'd like to share with you the basic theological principle in the New Testament about singleness. There is a Christian biblical theology of being a single adult, which means to be an adult without a spouse or children of your own. I'd like to discuss 1) that there is a theology, 2) the uniqueness of this theology, 3) what it means when Paul says singleness is a gift, and 4) the practical implications. This talk was given by Dr. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 1, 2014 for the conference "S1NGLE: God's Gifts — Our Plans". Today's podcast episode is brought to you by Gospel in Life, the site for all sermons, books, study guides and resources from Timothy Keller and Redeemer Presbyterian Church.

Why are we witnessing an increase in what were formally Bible-believing churches that now identify as ‘gay-affirming’ churches? Is that compatible with the Gospel? Is this a sign of a great falling away from what the Bible teaches? Have we lost our way when it comes to speaking the Truth in love? Join us for the answers to these questions and more on today’s edition of In The Market with Janet Parshall.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Voddie Baucham Jr., Professor at African Christian University and author of The Ever-Loving Truth, joins us to discuss the true purpose and intention of Christian marriage within a secular society that fundamentally misinterprets its significance, what a husband and wife should strive for within a marriage, how society has led women astray from their most fulfilling purpose, the pitfalls and shortcomings of maintaining an atheistic worldview, and how the state of American churches isn't as bleak as we have been led to believe. - - - Today's Sponsors: Genucel - Exclusive discount for my listeners! https://genucel.com/Klavan
Brandon Pak seemed to be on the path to achieving what he'd always wanted: He was a student at Berklee College of Music, he'd opened for Pentatonix and had recently performed as a backup singer for Charlie Puth. And yet, he'd never felt more empty. So, he wandered into the church he'd attended but left as a young man. On this week's episode, we talk with Brandon about finding greater purpose than he could've imagined through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Bible teaches us about the three foundational components of salvation. First, justification is an event. We speak of this by saying that we have been saved. Second, sanctification is a present process. We speak of this by saying that we are being saved. Third, glorification is a future prize. We speak of this by saying that we will be saved. The grace of God undergirds every facet of our salvation. In this message on Philippians 2:12–13, Pastor David Platt teaches us that faith involves radical dependence on God's work in our lives.
