How do we resolve texts we can’t reconcile to any sort of order or justice? When the bad guys win and evil violence seems to have the last word?
Dr. Mark Chavalas joins us again to discuss some of the more difficult passages in the book of Judges.
Moses leads his people as far as he will be allowed to go toward the Promised Land and is buried by God in the book of Deuteronomy.
This book is much more than a second-telling of the law. It’s a recounting of Israel’s history and an underscoring of who God is, and what He’s promised.
Join us as we look today to the fifth and final chapter of the Pentateuch.
We don’t live in the culture that originally received the Word of God. If we are to grasp this text, we must also understand some of the cultural connotations within. To help us, historian and professor Dr. Mark Chavalas joins us today.

The Pentateuch––the first five books of the Bible––is a whole in five parts. We might even say it’s one book with five chapters, and Leviticus is one of them.
It may be a surprise when we realize that technically only about two chapters of Exodus (Exodus 13:17-Exodus 15:21) deal with the “Exodus proper.”
So, there is much more for us in these 40 chapters. We’re continuing our over-view study of the Scriptures by looking at each book week by week. Join us today as Michael teaches about Exodus.
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:
