And while most people see the Bible as “too deep” and “too confusing,” the reality is just the opposite. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible to clearly establish the most important truth in all of Scripture – a truth made so simple by God that a child can both understand and respond: resulting in a life redeemed.

A Greater than Solomon is Here [1 Kings 10:1-5]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/28/2016

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 1 Kings 10:1-5; Matthew 12:42

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

“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.”

Wisdom: Wise or Otherwise [James 3:13]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/24/2016

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: James 3:13

SBC logo 204x204Description: Our culture in America places great value on the knowledge that comes with a college education.  From a financial perspective it nearly guarantees your life earnings will increase. The Bible, though, tells us to study for knowledge, but to ask for wisdom. There’s a difference between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is acquired through study, but wisdom is something that is given. You can’t get wisdom just by obtaining that precious college degree, because wisdom is a gift of God.
