From time to time throughout this series, we’ll release bonus episodes consisting of interviews with experts who are able to bring a little more nuance and depth to some of the themes and characters in the books we’re studying than I’m able to teach in a single episode about that book.
In this first Bonus Episode in our Cover to Cover series, I spoke with with Dr. Michael Lawson about the creation of Eve and the first marriage.
Howard Hendricks (many of you know him as the Prof) challenged me to take on a new and challenging subject every year, and that’s sort of where this new series comes from.
Over the years, verse-by-verse has been my love and I think it’s lacking in churches today, but after doing this for 40 years, one thing that’s struck me is that people don’t seem to know the big picture anymore.
How do we re-engage with an overview of what the Bible is about?
We study it as a whole.
Join us for The Big Book–Cover to Cover: a teaching series on the entire Bible, book by book, beginning today in Genesis:
Why we believe what we believe about Inspiration is not important to our faith, it is crucial, because if indeed this is God’s message to man, rooted from God to us in these forms we hold today, it is the message of hope, life, truth, and salvation to which we ascribe and which we hope to share with others.
Is the Bible the Word of God, or not?
Listen as Michael teaches part one of two on the Doctrine of Inspiration.
Peter explains God’s judicial dealings with three well known historical stories and reminds readers that God judges justly. He uses examples that his audience would’ve been familiar with to display both God’s righteous judgment and God’s deliverance of the righteous.
Like Peter’s readers, we live in a time of darkness, an unrighteous and ungodly world, rife with immorality, corruption and people who despise authority. Interesting that this was written some 1,950-some years ago!
It is possible to grow older and never grow old. It is also possible to prematurely die before we actually encounter death. How we think, what we are, and what what we do now will inform how we age. This 4-episode series includes teaching from the late Professor Howard Hendricks and interviews with a variety of men and women. In this episode, Michael speaks with Brenda Smith and Dr. Wendell Johnson. Michael concludes the episode by teaching from Genesis 25.
