Today, Christmas Morning, on the Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Josh Peglow presents us the gift of new a study in the book of 1 Peter — a book that encourages and equips the suffering, exiled Christian.
For in just the first two verses, not only does Peter’s salutation greet — but remind.
It reminds us of just who we are — through a complex set of mighty designations involving God the Father, the Holy Spirit, and the Son, Jesus Christ… Who’d make His entry into this world — helpless, naked, and lying in a manger.
SBC Host: [Bible Reading, Hebrews 2:10] “For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the originator of their salvation through sufferings. For bot—”
Avg Guy:Wait!!! Hold up for a moment! You can’t just read that without prompting some questions: What does it mean that it was *fitting* for Christ to suffer? And what does it mean that Christ was being made *perfect*?? …Isn’t Christ *already* perfect? …And hasn’t He *always* been perfect?
SBC Host: Fair enough.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast —on the Sunday before Christmas — Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and shows us that, indeed, these and other questions arise from this Advent passage that we find in Hebrews chapter 2.
Description: “Virgin birth” – an expression people hear all around the world during Christmastime. But for people outside of Christianity – and sadly for far too many within it – they consider it a myth. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, elder Keith Barker delivers a Christmas message that seeks to clearly and simply state the absolute essential need for Christ being born of a virgin.
“A Baby’s hands in Bethlehem were small and softly curled; but held within Their dimpled grasp the hope of all the world.”

Merry Christmas! Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible and shares with us that despite the efforts of Joseph and Mary to find suitable accommodations in Bethlehem, there was no room for Jesus.
Christmas is a festive time. A happy time. A family time. A time to remember Christmas’ past – perhaps as a child – when the wonder of the sounds and smells and singing of Jingle Bells warmed and filled your heart. Sometimes though it’s easy to fill our hearts with everything BUT the main point: the marvelous birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Description: Join us as we turn the back the clock to 1999 to listen to a special Christmas Scandia Bible Church “Classic.” In this Classic Sermon Pastor James Allen takes a look at the Old Testament prophecy regarding the coming of the Messiah in the book of Micah.
Description: In the midst of an impending attack by the Assyrians, Micah pronounces the good news of a coming King who will safeguard Israel from her enemies as He rules the nation as the Good Shepherd. This King will not only be a descendant of David but will come from long ago, from the days of eternity.
Description: Thousands of very nice people consider themselves Christians. When we examine Scripture carefully we find that there is much more to being a Christian than just praying and going to church.
Description: This passage in Matthew is that old old story that we have know since childhood. The baby, the shepherds, the Magi, the special star, and the gifts. It was special to us as children, but now as adults we too often tend to gloss over it. Today let’s take time to explore it — to soak in it a bit –to see the marvel and wonder of God becoming a man so that He could live out a sinless life and then give that life on the cross for us.
