  • Textual Criticism

    Textual criticism is a scholarly field of study that examines biblical texts that were composed over a period of time. These texts were hand-copied and were susceptible to scribal error. By comparing later texts with earlier texts these scholars can identify scribal errors and intentional additions to uncover the most likely original. 00:24:56

  • Paul’s Midrash in the A-chiastic Lines

    We will continue to address Paul’s second midrash in Galatians, which he presents in a chiastic construction. To understand why Paul refers to “the curse of the law”, we must first perceive the chiasm. We will learn in the next podcast that the Law is not a curse! 00:11:19

  • Paul’s Return to Damascus

    After Paul returns from Mount Sinai to talk with God, he returns to Damascus for 3 years, giving him enough distance from the intense scrutiny from the Christian leadership in Jerusalem as well as learning a tent making trade that would help fund his travels. 00:15:48

  • Paul’s Return to Tarsus

    After three years in Damascus, Paul appeared in Jerusalem to engage in discussion with Paul and James, who then sent Paul to his hometown of Tarsus. Paul responded to this crisis (as he responded to many other crisis throughout his ministry) by seeking God for direction and searching the scriptures for deeper meaning. 00:19:47

  • Paul’s Startling Markers

    In Galatians 4:24, Paul uses startling makers to lead us to the Hebrew Scriptures, pointing to the story of Hagar and Sarah. What is Paul up to when he is leading us to the Old Testament in this way? 00:22:08

  • Promise of the Spirit

    Paul declares that believers in Christ have received “the promise of the Spirit through faith” (Gal 3:14). God’s promise can be found in the Hebrew Scriptures, which conveys deeper meaning through the artistry of the language. 00:25:06

  • Prophetic Passages of the Remnant

    God is making a selection out of Israel as to who is worthy to inherit the birthright, which is a special role of leadership. This selection process has nothing to do with “who will be saved.” All the children of Israel belong to God. However, those who inherit the birthright are called a “remnant,” and […]

  • Remnant of the Church Romans 9-11

    It is clear from Scripture that there will be a remnant of Israel. In a previous session we learned that the remnant are those who will inherit the birthright. However, what about believers in Christ? Romans 9-11 reveals that there will also be a remnant from the Church. 00:24:01

  • Role of the Remnant

    God is selecting a remnant out of Israel to play an important future role. After the Millennial Kingdom, a remnant will be led by the Messiah in a victorious battle against the forces of evil, which we can see in the Book of Daniel. Our lives today are a training ground to prepare those who […]

  • Satan’s Giant Army

    We first meet Satan’s giant army in Genesis 6:4. God caused a flood to destroy these evil giants but some survived, and they continue to appear in the biblical narrative. At some future time, possibly after the Millennial Kingdom, the armies of God and Satan will meet in a final battle. 00:24:21
