Episode 25 from Season 1 titled: Who lied to us about Christmas?

 

That's right, we have been lied to about Christmas. Much of what we think we know about the Christmas story is not from the Bible. So why do we keep telling an extended non-Biblical version? In this final podcast episode of 2019 we look at the real Christmas story and what we learn from history about Jesus' birth.

Episode 24 from Season 1 titled: The Jewish backstory to the Pool of Bethesda

All of the Bible is set in a location very different from ours. Sometimes to understand the full impact of a gospel story we need to know a little about the location. This week's podcast is a 'head' week where we learn a little more about the Pool of Bethesda.

Episode 22 from Season 1 titled: let's Talk about Sex - What is the real deal?

Where do we start talking about sex? What does the Bible really think? In this episode, we look at sex not just from what the Bible says but also what it doesn't say. This is a sex talk for adults who never had a sex talk.

Episode 21 from Season 1 titled: Do we have to believe in sin to be a Christian?

There are some aspects of the Christian faith that feel out of date and disconnected from the way society sees the world. In the last 20 years, so many churches have stopped talking about sin. Is sin an out of date concept in a modern world or does it still have its central role in Christianity? Is it time that sin gets dropped or is it time to reunderstand it?

Episode 19 from Season 1 titled: What is the meaning of being "Born Again"?

In this episode, we take a term heavily used by many Christians and unpack its original meaning. The title 'Born Again' is often used to separate out 'real' Christians and the fake. Maybe we are misunderstanding what Jesus meant by this and how to use it. We will look at the original use, the greek and the cultural implications.

Episode 18 from Season 1 titled: Where is God in hard times?

In this podcast Cris is joined by Sarah Mcdonald from Hope Church and Benedict Atkins from St Matts Canning Town for a conversation about "Where is God in hard times?" We can on often make the mistake in thinking that how we feel is how things are. If you feel distant to God we then conclude we must be distant to God. Sometimes our emotions and feelings lie to us. In this episode we explore the topic of suffering, hard times and where is God.
