2020 was the year of the COVID pandemic. One of my “quarantine projects” was scanning much of my bible study notes, tossing the paper, and turning the information into a post that I can share with you.
One of my 2020 goals was to pass 150,000 listener downloads on the podcast. I fell 187 short on 12/31, but passed 150,000 by Jan 2.
Meet one of my favorite OT teachers. I’m excited to feature Dr. Erika Moore on the podcast. She is one of my favorite OT teachers, and I think you’ll love her, too.
October was a big month for WitW! I finished a resource page for every book of the Bible; I finished the “quotations” pages, compiling all the places where Scripture quotes Scripture. We reached the culmination of the podcast series on the Holy Spirit (#8). And I need a bit less than 8,000 downloads to reach my goal of breaking 150,000.
WitW: Do you know who the Holy Spirit is? The 2020 State of Theology survey shows fewer evangelicals understand the Holy Spirit’s work in salvation. Let’s study the Holy Spirit together.
Starting September 9, new 10-week series explores what both the Old and New Testament teach us about the Holy Spirit.
While working on my upcoming series “Who is the Holy Spirit,” I’ve been revising, creating and updating my Bible study resources pages. I hope you’re finding them useful! I’m adding several new sections to the resources, including basic introductory information, free journal articles online and answers to basic questions.
During my study break, I will randomly offer single podcasts that illustrate good Bible study methodology or that are passages I’ve always wanted to teach. I’ve also been adding to the number of resource pages to aid you in your study.
1Corinthians is the textbook case for understanding context. This is a profoundly important claim about the way we approach the Bible.
Paul’s discussion of the resurrection in 1Corinthians 15 is powerful! Somehow I never seriously studied this chapter before and I can’t believe how profound Paul’s argument is.
I think 1Corinthians 12-14 are some of the most profound chapters in the letter. In correcting the Corinthians’ view of speaking in tongues, Paul gives us a valuable perspective we can apply to many important issues in life. I’m grateful to finally have a chance to teach through them.
I hope thinking through the issues surrounding communion has been as meaningful for you as it has been for me. But I’m really looking forward to what’s coming next! 1Corinthians 12-14 has been on my bucket list of “things I want to teach” for a long time!
Thanks for the awesome feedback on the 1Corinthians 11 head covering passage! I hesitated to put my views out there given the controversial nature of the passage. But your feedback has been worth it! Now it’s on to the Lord’s Supper and then spiritual gifts. THANKS for listening!
My 2020 goals are to: 1) break 500 podcasts (currently at 479) and 2) pass 150,000 downloads (currently 121,159). I need your support! Please subscribe to the podcast and tell a friend about it.
After 10 chapters in 27 podcasts on 1Corinthians, I’ll be taking a break for the holidays. But we will tackle the head covering passage when the podcast returns in January. THANKS for listening!
