Getting Your Christmas Christology Straight
Join us as we sit down with Dr. Greg Lanier and discuss all things incarnation, asking questions like: Why did the Messiah need to be born of a virgin? Why did the Messiah need to be fully God and fully man? What does it mean that Mary was “overshadowed” by the Spirit? Is Mary to be called the “mother of God”? In the humanity of Jesus, He was like us in every way, but can we really say that since we have original sin and He didn’t? What does the title “Son of God” mean? Was Jesus the “son of God” before the incarnation? What does “only begotten son” mean? How did Jesus view his own incarnation? What role does each member of the Trinity play in the incarnation?
A few key ideas from this important work by Kuyper
In 1898, Dutch theologian and statesman Abraham Kuyper (1837–1920) presented a lecture series on Calvinism as a life system at Princeton Theological Seminary. His six talks covered Calvin’s teaching on politics, science, art, and religion as well as Kuyper’s application of the doctrine for his own day and into the future. This brief book summarizes the lectures and provides commentary that invites twenty-first century readers to follow Calvin and Kuyper in walking in submission to the Lordship of Jesus.
The Need for Creeds Today – Confessional Faith in a Faithless Age
Join us we sit down with J.V. Fesko and ask him, in connection with his new book “The Need for Creeds Today: Confessional Faith in a Faithless Age”: In what ways are some Confessional Christians like grouchy territorial local surfers? Is the Presbyterian Westminster Confession more bonafide and cooler than the Baptist 1689 Confession? Are Baptists truly “Reformed”? What do you say to “No Creed but the Bible”? Why do some Reformed Confessional Christians come off a lil’ on the smug side, almost like an acceptable cage-stage vibe? Can I pick and choose from the various confessions/catechisms, or need I only choose one?...
What is the focus of the Bible? Heaven? Kingdom? Covenant? Justification? Glory to God? Relationship?
Join us as we sit down with J. Scott Duvall and J. Daniel Hays as we discuss the unity of the whole Bible. Listen as they speak to God's desire to be with his people is a thread running from Genesis through Revelation. Duvall and Hays make the case that God's relational presence is central to the Bible's grand narrative. It is the cohesive center that drives the whole biblical story and ties together other important biblical themes, such as covenant, kingdom, glory, and salvation history.
