Show Notes

The Christmas story is important because the birth of Christ is important. The traditional story of His birth contains many errors, and presents a cold, hard, and lonely picture about the circumstances of his birth. This expository teaching explores and reveals a deeper, more accurate understanding of the customs, time and place, and other details that truly make the birth of Christ an inspiring account of love, obedience, giving, and sacrifice. 

Verses: Luke 1:24-40, 56-57; 2:1-24; Matt. 1:18-25; Lev. 12:6-8 

Teacher: John Schoenheit

The First and Greatest Commandment

What is the first and greatest commandment? Jesus was asked this and quoted from Deuteronomy. Having a full understanding of the Gospel record and the Old Testament commandment helps us understand that God “alone” is to be our God. Also, understanding some secondary meanings of the commandment help us to love Him with “all” our heart, soul, and might.  Verses: Mark 12:28-34; Deut. 6:4-5; 4:35, 39; Zech. 14:19; 13:2; Isa. 2:20; Luke 2:27  Teacher: John Schoenheit ...

What does the Bible say about Tattoos?

This teaching explores three questions about tattoos: What does the Bible say? Is it okay for a Christian to get one? What should one do with an ungodly tattoo? In the Old Testament God condemned the idea of marking or cutting oneself as that practice was associated with pagan worship. The New Testament encourages us to love one another by not causing others to stumble by our actions, which could include tattoos.  Verses: Lev. 19:28; 1 Kings 18:26-28; Jer. 16:6; 41:4-5; 48:36-37; Isa. 49:15-16; Eph. 2:13-14; Rom. 8:37-39; 10:4; 13:8, 10; 14:22-23; 1 Cor. 8:9, 37-39; 10:23; Gal. 5:14; Col. 3:23; 1 Tim. 1:5; 1 Sam. 15:23; Matt. 15:17; 1 John 1:9  Teacher: Dan Gallagher  ...

The Conditional Nature of Prophecy

One aspect of prophecy that has not been well understood by Christians is that it is almost always conditional in nature. God is often calling us to greater things, but because He also gave us free will, our behavior can effect whether or not a prophecy comes to pass. Examples of prophecy in the Bible reveal the often unspoken “if” in personal prophecy.  Verses: 1 Cor. 14:1; Jer. 4:5-6; 18:1-12; 1 Sam. 13:13-14; 2 Sam. 7:11; 12:7-14, 18; 1 Kings 11:7-11; 21:21-29; 2 Chron. 12:1-7; Jonah 3:1-10; 2 Kings 20:1-6; Mark 14:35-36  Teacher: John Schoenheit  ...
