“The queen of Sheba heard about Solomon and his connection with the Name of God. She came to put his reputation to the test by asking tough questions. She made a grand and showy entrance into Jerusalem—camels loaded with spices, a huge amount of gold, and precious gems. She came to Solomon and talked about all the things that she cared about, emptying her heart to him. Solomon answered everything she put to him—nothing stumped him. When the queen of Sheba experienced for herself Solomon’s wisdom and saw with her own eyes the palace he had built, the meals that were served, the impressive array of court officials and sharply dressed waiters, the lavish crystal, and the elaborate worship extravagant with Whole-Burnt-Offerings at the steps leading up to The Temple of God, it took her breath away.”
— 1 Kings 10:1-5 MSG

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker laments the great sadness in the world today: that so many know the name of Jesus… yet do not (or will not) grasp who He is. (Even the Disciples who walked with Jesus during His days traveling the  dusty trails in Israel, didn’t understand that indeed He was far greater than even King Solomon). Yes, the Truths of the Bible are hidden only to those who refuse to seek them.

In our sermon, Elder Barker recounts the history of the Queen of Sheba seeking to know whether or not “The Great” King Solomon was as great as his reputation held.  … And that’s really the point: this African queen — so many decades ago — set an excellent example for us today. Hearing of the wisdom of Solomon, she sought him with an open heart to confirm the stories of his greatness.

…”Oh that everyone walking the earth today would come to Jesus with the same hunger and honesty seeking the Truth.”

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 7

SBC logo 204x204Description:

“Then the flood came… and the water increased and lifted up the ark…. The water prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. The water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere under the heavens were covered…. All flesh that moved on the earth perished…. all in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, died…. They were blotted out from the earth; and only Noah was left, together with those that were with him in the ark.”

(taken from Gen 7:17-23)

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and covers one of the most well-known and hotly-debated accounts in the Bible: The Flood of Noah. Oftentimes, though, with all the attention it garners, in the midst of exerting our focus and efforts in trying to defend it (or avoid it), we Christians miss something amazing — we miss the amazing part the flood plays in the history of our redemption.

Key Text: Genesis 6:9-22

SBC logo 204x204Description: Everyone knows the story of Noah’s Ark! In fact, it may be the most well-known Bible story outside of Christian circles. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we explore Noah and the Ark, as Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the Book of Genesis. And while most are quite familiar with the story of Noah, many do not realize just how important he is in redemptive history… and how his life and calling provide us with a beautiful picture of the final Savior of the world, Jesus Christ.

Key Text: Genesis 6:1-8

SBC logo 204x204Description: In the book of Genesis, who are the “sons of God” and who are the Niphilim?

… Questions that many have asked, and it’s why this passage may be the most controversial passage in the entire book of Genesis. And while many, over the years, have offered answers as to who they think the sons of God and Niphilim are… what we’ll find is that the best answers are the ones that best fit the context of the book of Genesis.
