What is the most important thing about the Christian faith? How does it claim to connect you with God, forgive your sins, and give you eternal life?• Is it knowing all the things you learned about the Old Testament if you’ve been listening to this podcast the last few months?• Is it holding to certain beliefs like a 6-day Creation theory or 5-point Calvinism?• Or is it what you do like being sure that you don’t do cheat on your spouse or taxes?• As we will see in our lesson today it isn’t a what or a what you do, that is the most important thing about Christianity, that is at the core of what it takes to connect you with God, it’s a WHO.The Bible is very clear•  Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6If we want a relationship with God in this life, the forgiveness of the sins that have severed our relationship with Him and to live in heaven after we die, Jesus said He is the only way we can achieve that.He said that because though he was God, he came to earth, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins and by his historically verifiable resurrection from the dead, validated all the claims he made for himself and that He is the only way of salvation.To find out more and the notes for this podcast, go to Support this podcast:

If you want to describe the perfect super-hero, a sterling example of strength, integrity, leadership, and self-giving, you could list these characteristics in minute dictionary detail or you could simply say, “Captain America.”An image can contain volumes of backstory and meaning in a few words—the challenge is you need to understand the meaning of the image.The books of the Old Testament and Zachariah is one of the main ones that do this, uses imagery in much the same way.The challenge to modern readers have is that we don’t know the backstory of the imagery. For us visions of myrtle trees, golden lampstands, and a flying scroll make about as much sense to us as Captain America, Thor, and Spiderman would make to the Old Testament Jews.In our podcast, we’ll discover the meaning of the images in this fascinating book that also contains more specific prophecy about Jesus than any other Old Testament book other than Isaiah.For a PDF of the notes and more information, go to: Support this podcast:

People ask, if it really matter if the events talked about in the Old Testament took place in the times and ways that are described in the Bible?And some wonder if it isn’t the spiritual message of these stories that is most important?In this podcast, we are going to talk about how it does matter tremendously that the Old Testament describes true stories that took place in recognizable places that we can date in true history. Once we understand this, it helps us understand the view of our great God and shows that he can be trusted with the details of our history in the past and the eternity of our future with him. For downloadable notes and more go to: Support this podcast:
