WHI-999 | The Formation of the Canon

Why were some books chosen as part of the biblical canon while others were rejected? Why do Catholic Bibles have an extra section called the Apocrypha? Was the selection process primarily about the exercise of power in determining what ultimately became Scripture, or a submission to the inherent authority of sacred texts? These questions and more will be addressed on this edition of the White Horse Inn.

WHI-998 | The Origin of Scripture

WHI-996 | Contending for the Faith, Part 2

On this edition of the White Horse Inn, the hosts continue to explore the topic of “Contending for the Faith,” as they take questions from the live audience in Southern California. Questions include: are we simply assuming the truthfulness of Scripture since we can’t interview the eyewitnesses of Christ’s resurrection; what should churches do to encourage evangelism in our time; and can our testimonies be seen as evidence of the gospel’s truthfulness.

WHI-995 | Contending for the Faith, Part 1

How did the apostles contend for the faith throughout the book of Acts? Did they appeal to the practical benefits of living life Jesus’ way? Did they share their testimonies or inner experiences? Did they encourage blind faith? On this special live edition of the White Horse Inn, the hosts walk through the apologetic sermons in the book of Acts in order to discover how to “contend for the faith once delivered to the saints” (Jude 3).

WHI-994 | Inspiration & Inerrancy

Some who believe that the Bible is an inspired book go on to reject the idea that it is inerrant. But what does it mean to believe in the inerrancy of Scripture? How can sinful men produce a holy text without errors? What are we to do with some of the alleged contradictions in Scripture? Joining the panel for this discussion is Dr. R.C. Sproul, one of the founding leaders of the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy. The White Horse Inn: know what you believe and why you believe it.

WHI-993 | The Inspiration of Scripture

What does it mean to assert that the Bible is an inspired text? Did this holy book fall out of Heaven? Did the biblical writers dictate word for word what God wanted them to say? How are we to understand the nature of Scripture? On this program the hosts will unpack the meaning of the biblical doctrine of inspiration and will also take a look at some of the challenges that this doctrine is facing in our time.

WHI-990 | The Kingdom of God, Part 2

On this edition of the White Horse Inn the hosts continue their discussion of the Kingdom of God. Though many today seek a Kingdom of power and glory, God’s Kingdom advances in weakness and humility. One day God will reign visibly with great power and majesty, but in the meantime his Kingdom advances through word and sacrament.
