WHI-1183 | Covenant Theology Explored

What is covenant theology and why is it crucial for our overall understanding of Scripture? How does covenant theology relate to our understanding of law and gospel? What is the difference between the Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants? On this edition of White Horse Inn, we discuss these important questions with Mike Brown and Zach Keele, authors of Sacred Bond: Covenant Theology Explored (originally aired Nov 11, 2012).

Defend the Faith – “How Can Jesus Be the Only Way?”

Michael Horton recently sat down and answered five of the most common apologetics questions people get when they share their faith with their friends and family. We’ll be posting one each week through the end of the year. For more information on our Defend the Faith campaign and for additional resources to help you “know and share what you believe and why you believe it,” please visit the homepage of our year end appeal.

WHI-1182 | Understanding the New Testament

How do the Old and New Testaments fit together? Throughout this series we’ve observed that the Bible is not merely a collection of timeless eternal principles, but a historical drama which pushes through the centuries toward climax and resolution. In the New Testament we find ourselves at the climax. The stage has been set. Finally we’ve arrived at the new covenant in which we begin to see the dawn of redeeming grace!

WHI-1181 | The Big Picture of the Bible

What is the Bible all about? Though this may sound like a basic question, it’s actually one that many people overlook in our day. It’s common in Christian circles today for pastors and Bible study leaders to lose sight of the forest for the trees. In other words, we need to better see how all the books of the Bible fit together and proclaim one big overarching narrative. That’s the focus of this edition of White Horse Inn as we continue our series on reading the Bible.

WHI-1180 | Wisdom & The Prophets

What are we to make of the wisdom literature of the Old Testament? Are these writings solely concerned with ethics and practical matters? How about the prophetic writings? Why were they included in Scripture, and how should we interpret these texts? On this program we unpack these issues as we continue our series, How to Read Your Bible.

Charleston Christmas Conference

Friend of the Inn (and frequent contributor to Modern Reformation), Jon Payne, has asked us to tell you about the Charleston Christmas Conference to be held next month in Charleston, South Carolina, where Jon has planted Christ Church,a mission work of the Presbyterian Church in America.

The theme of the conference is “The Glorious Incarnation.” The speakers will be Derek Thomas and Steve Lawson. For more information about the conference, including price, schedule, and location, please visit the conference website.

2014 White Horse Inn Weekend

We’re excited to open registration this week for our 2014 White Horse Inn Weekend. The Weekend is our version of the “un-conference” with lots of time for face-to-face interaction, discussion, and good fellowship.

In 2013, we gathered in San Diego to talk about the big picture of the Bible (which we turned into the “How to Read Your Bible” study kit). In 2014, we’re heading to Vail, Colorado, to answer the question, “Do We All Worship the Same God?” Joining the White Horse Inn hosts are special friends from around the world: Greg Koukle (host of the popular Stand to Reason radio show), Isaac Shaw (the head of a church multiplication ministry in India), and Hicham Chehab (a Christian missionary to Muslims).

You can read more about our special guests, the sessions we have planned, and our schedule of events at whitehorseinn.org/weekend. Remember, the Weekend is an “un-conference”—we keep the numbers intentionally low so that we can enjoy quality time with one another. Don’t miss out on an opportunity that our 2013 participants said was “outstanding,” “excellent in all ways,” and “exceptional.”

Save time and money by taking advantage of our early bird rates. Register today and join us in 2014 for our second annual White Horse Inn Weekend!

How to Help Our Friends in the Philippines

Many of you remember that last year, Mike Horton spent some time in the Philippines teaching and ministering with friends there. Our “man in Manila,” Nollie Malabuyo, has been in contact with us and sent this summary, which includes information on how to help those who have been directly affected by the disaster:

News reports on Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation of our country seem to be getting worse by the day.   Tens of thousands are dead, many of them left unburied. Homes, churches, and buildings are destroyed. Looting and violence are starting to take over the streets. The government is overwhelmed.

From the reports of foreign missionaries who have worked in these areas for years, even decades, their mission buildings suffered great damage, and Christian brothers and sisters have also lost their homes and fields, and many also died.

The news reports focus on the big cities, particularly Tacloban. But there is a big swath of destruction left behind by the typhoon (see enclosed map).

A group of Reformed people in Manila is meeting to discuss how God can use this time of trouble to spread the gospel and assist many in the devastated areas.

Please pray for this effort. None of us has ever been involved in rebuilding efforts after a disaster.

This will be a long-term rebuilding of many parts of the country.  Besides larger relief agencies, the following domestic links are reliable (theologically and financially).

On the Rock Ministries, Boracay

Dan and Tori Beaver (Facebook). Serving the Ati people and tourists. Church, school, Bible school

Larry & Bobby Womack (Facebook). Serving the poor. Bible school/institute

Paul & Margie Varburg (Facebook), Tacloban City

Dennis & Marilou Drake, International Deaf Education Association. They have a website for Bohol Earthquake Relief.

WHI-1179 | The Bible’s History Books

If the Five Books of Moses can be summarized as Israel’s constitution, how are we to think about the history books that follow? What is the meaning and purpose of the book of Joshua or Judges? How are the genealogies or battle scenes of the ancient Israelites relevant for Christians living today? Questions like these are important as we think about correctly interpreting and faithfully applying the Bible in contemporary life.

How to Read Your Bible

What is the Bible all about, and how can a person read it correctly? Why are there so many different books in Scripture, and how do they relate to one another? On this episode of White Horse Inn, we introduce our new series: How to Read Your Bible. Instead of a more general approach, we’ll actually dive into the biblical text by introducing and summarizing the Pentateuch. What is the purpose and message of these five books? What was God’s promise to Abraham, and how did it differ from the covenant made at Mt. Sinai? We’ll look at these questions and more as we kick off our new series.
