In this episode of the pod, Jack and Nico discuss significant biblical passages on baptism to show that the "reformed" doctrine that baptism is "just a symbol of salvation already received through faith" is not found in Scripture. Instead, a careful textual analysis of the New Testament's baptismal references reveals that baptism SAVES us by truly washing away our sins and giving the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Today, on this SHORTER episode of the show, Nico lays out the cumulative case for why Mary is the New Ark of the Covenant according to Scripture. This episode was originally made for the WIT Instagram @WhatIsTruthPod and Nico's TikTok @TheArmchairExegete as two separate posts. It was later combined into a full-length version for our Podcast youtube channel @PhilanthroposMedia. If you would like to experience this video with VISUALS of the concepts mentioned and Scripture verses in their full ...
Don't Statues of Saints violate the "2nd Commandment" against GRAVEN IMAGES? How can Catholics justify BOWING and OFFERING INCENSE to the statues/icons of saints? Shouldn't all glory go to GOD and not SAINTS? Aren't these IDOLS? Today on the Pod, the Armchair Exegete (Nico) fleshes out the biblical theology behind making images/statues/icons of saints and giving forms of honor to them. Surprisingly, the answer is deeply rooted in Israel's use of images in Temple Worship and the consequen...
What are saints? Should we pray to them? Do they have a role to play with our prayers? Does praying to saints violate the 1st Commandment? Can we honor the saints? Isn't Jesus the only mediator between God and men (1 Timothy 2:5)?In this standalone special episode of What Is Truth, Nico's breaks down some the KEY places in the Bible that support the doctrine that we can and should pray to and honor the holy saints (and that THE SAINTS can and do pray for us in HEAVEN)! Armed with Scripture, y...
The Apostle Jude in the New Testament cites the Book of Enoch and the Assumption of Moses as "prophecy" and sacred history respectively. The author of Hebrews references the Ascension of Isaiah in chapter eleven's "hall of heroes." So... why aren't these 3 apocryphal works in the canon of Protestants or Catholics? How do we exclude them without being inconsistent? What was the way the early Christians settled this thorny question? What does it tell us about the true way to identify the canon ...
Did the Jews believe that ALL prophecy, inspiration, and divine Scripture COMPLETELY CEASED to be produced for 500 years before Christ? Today, Jack and Nico DEBUNK a common "slam-dunk" argument against the idea that any Jews couldn't have accepted the 7 Deutercanonical books as inspired, because it was allegedly "written too late" during a time when Jews believed that all inspired Scripture had long since ceased to be written. This episode is a BONUS topic related to PART 1's discussion ...
Are there any places in the NT where a deuterocanonical book is cited, alluded to, or borrowed from? What does it mean if a sacred writer uses or builds his theology off a deuterocanonical book? How do you identify that? What do we make of the apocryphal texts that some passages of NT Scripture refer to that Catholics and Protestants agree are NOT in Scripture? Is being mentioned in the NT enough to prove inspiration? In this solo episode with Nico, you will get a break down of ho...
The early Christians overwhelmingly SUPPORTED the DIVINE INSPIRATION of the Deuterocanon! So why did they LEAVE OUT those books from their "canon lists?" Why did so many of these ancient theologians put these books in special categories like "secondary rank," "read in the churches," or "ecclesiastical books"? What did these categories mean? How was their understanding of "canon" different from ours today? Does this "cancel" out their own testimonies in favor of divine inspiration from their o...
Did the early Christians and Church Fathers believe the 7 Books of the Deuterocanon were inspired scripture? Did they confirm doctrine with these books? How can we settle this?You might have guessed it from the title, but this is a CHURCH HISTORY episode of What is Truth. Today on the Pod, Jack and Nico break down the primary sources from the early church that are points of contention in settling the question "what did the early church consensus believe about the Deuterocanon?" SPOILER ...
Did Jews always agree on what was inspired Scripture? Was that question settled by the time of Jesus? What Scriptural evidence gives us a clue to competing Jewish views? When and why did the Jewish canon of Scripture "close?" Who "closed it?" Does it matter for Christians today? Today on the Pod, the What is Truth team breaks down the historical journey of how Jews got the the canon they use today, which Protestants today cite to confirm their shorter canon of the Old Testament. It's a ...
Why do Catholics and Protestants have different numbers of Old Testament books? What are these extra seven books? What are they about? Are they inspired Scripture? How do we know? In this 20 minute introduction, Nico Silva drops down definitions and context needed to understand What Is Truth Pod's upcoming 3-Part Deuterocanon Series in the month of July. Jack and Nico spent this past year devouring biblical scholar Gary Machuta's two exhaustive and informative books "Why Catholic Bibles are B...

Basil Cole, O.P. to discuss what his new book: "Angelic Virtues and Demonic Vices" and delve into what St. Thomas Aquinas, drawing on the wisdom of the Church Fathers, has to say about attaining heaven and avoiding hell through pursuit of the virtues and combatting the vices.Fr.
