Description: In the first section of the book of Hebrews the author labors a point:
Christ is infinitely superior to the angels.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that it’s a point which may make us wonder, because our thoughts of angels are not the same as the first readers of this book.
However, in a sense, their struggle is our struggle, not because we think too highly of angels… but, perhaps, too lowly of Christ.
Description: In the opening verses of Hebrews we read that Jesus Christ created the universe. …A surprising statement, even for most Christians! After all, didn’t God the Father create everything? And to make matters more confusing, we read that Christ also upholds everything.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues taking us through our study in the book of Hebrews and shows us that this great truth of Christ creating and upholding everything — and, as we’ll learn, making purification for our sins —not only gives us a clear picture of both Christ’s deity and humanity, but continues the author’s argument of presenting Christ as the Final and Perfect Revelation from God.
…penned the great Christian apologist and philosopher, Francis Schaeffer, concerning God.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our Hebrews study and shows us how in just the first paragraph, the book launches describing the fact that God speaks… and in different ways.
And then culminates in the final and glorious revelation of Jesus Christ — to whom all other revelation pointed and finds there: “Yes and Amen.”
Description: A new temple in Jerusalem will be constructed and temple sacrifices reinstituted. …Or will they?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shows us how the beginning of chapter 11 draws our attention back to the eschatological temple that Ezekiel prophesied of.
But what is this temple? Is it going to be just like before with animal sacrifices and everything? Or, rather, was Ezekiel’s vision a picture of something greater which finds it’s fulfillment in Christ?
Description: After Jephthah’s defeat of the Ammonites and the wicked sacrifice of his own daughter, his troubles are not over. He is rebuked by the Ephraimites and ends up fighting against them and over 40,000 Ephraimites die. Israelite killing Israelite.
With all of the sinfulness and tragedy in the life of Jephthah, the book of Judges is not the only place we see mention of his name. Jephthah surprisingly is listed in the “Hall of Faith” in Hebrews 11. We explore how Jephthah might have “made the cut”.
Description: There are many thousands of ‘Born Again’ Christians who lack confidence in their salvation. The expression, ‘eternal security’ is beyond their reach. This position of doubt can only rob them of peace and joy, and detract from their witness to the unsaved.
