Welcome, I’m Krisan. Wednesday in the Word is my podcast about what the Bible means and how we know.

About Krisan Marotta

Krisan Marotta became a Christian late in high school through Youth For Christ, but really began to understand the gospel in college. She majored in journalism at Stanford University. Her mother thought she was sending Krisan to an Ivy League University, but God was sending her to Peninsula Bible Church (PBC). The verse-by-verse teaching at PBC inspired her to learn to study the Bible for herself.

After college, she completed a 3-year post-graduate program in biblical exegesis at McKenzie Study Center in Oregon (back when it was a Study Center; before they started Gutenberg College.)

In 1990 Krisan and her husband moved to Virginia to raise their children near family. Krisan continued her passion for Bible study and began teaching. In addition to being the Women’s Ministry Director for her local church for over 20 years, she taught a weekly women’s bible study from 1994 to 2014. She began podcasting in 2011, and fortunately, made it her main focus just before COVID.

She and her husband are rapidly approaching their 50th wedding anniversary. They have two grown children and two grandchildren. When she’s not studying, podcasting or playing with grandchildren, you can find Krisan dancing with the Skyline Country Cloggers.

Servant Songs of Isaiah

Servant Songs of Isaiah

Isaiah gives us the fullest revelation of Christ in the Old Testament, most notably the Servant Songs. The exile raised the question: Can fail such that God will abandon us and we forfeit His God? In the Servant Songs, God demonstrates that not only will He remain committed to His people, He will willingly choose to endure suffering in order to forgive and redeem His people.

Philippians: Choose Life

Philippians: Choose Life

Paul’s letter to the Philippians is filled expressions of praise, joy and confidence, despite the fact that Paul wrote the letter while he was in prison. The Philippian church, unlike many other churches Paul wrote to, was not facing any particular problem or controversy. Instead their challenges were the kind that plague many churches today. We can learn from Paul how to rejoice and persevere in the mundane, ordinary difficulties of life.
