Episode 38 from Season 2 titled: Teaching from the Desert and the beautiful hidden Ein Gedi.

There is something special about reading the Bible in the location of the events. This week's podcast comes from the city of Jerusalem as we explore the beautiful oasis of the Ein Gedi. This is the location of where King David hid when running for his life.

Life can often feel like a wasteland or a desert but hidden not far from each of us is a spring of living water. The quesiton is are you willing to look for it.

Episode 26 from Season 2 titled: Interview with Dr Stephen Backhouse and what is 'theology'.

 

For a long time theology (The study of God) has been taught in education centres and colleges. But good 'thinking about God' should be housed in the local church. In this interview, we talk with Stephen about what is theology and why the local church needs to reimagine how it teaches people. We can all be practical theologians, yes even those of us who would say we aren't academic.

Episode 35 from Season 2 titled: Ninty nine and the one.

 

Jesus tells us a story of 'One Hundred' sheep and a Shepard who realises that there is 'one' missing. So he leaves the 99 for the 1. What do we do today when the church has become the 1% and now the 99% are lost? Do we give up? Did Jesus fail? Is there more for us to do? In this episode, Cris walks us through a way of sharing our faith that's really simple.

Episode 30 from Season 2 titled: Another way of seeing the Bible.

We all approach the Bible with a set of questions, but are these questions enough and could there be others to ask. In this session, we look at the questions a Western reader asks and the questions a Middle Eastern reader asks. Seeing the Bible through another set of questions can really help us engage with what it says.

The Modern Western Reader

  1. Did it really happen like this, is it historical?
  2. How does it solve my problems?
  3. Are these people real, what proof?
  4. Does it fit the world we know?
  5. Do I like it?

Eastern / Jewish Reader

  1. Why did the writer tell me this story?
  2. Why did the writer choose to write it like this?
  3. Why did the writer use this word not that?
  4. How can I entre the story?
  5. What does the story ask of me?
  6. Where have I heard this story before?
  7. What does it tell me about this world that I didn’t know?

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?
