Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament, Part 2
On this program, Michael Horton continues his conversation with Nancy Guthrie about finding Christ in the Old Testament. The focus of this discussion centers on four of Nancy’s books, The Son of David, Seeing Jesus in the Historical Books, The Wisdom of God: Seeing Jesus in the Psalms and Wisdom Books, and The Word of the Lord: Seeing Jesus in the Prophets.
The Ministry & Marks of the Church
The world regularly fragments us into various constituent groups where we are divided by age, ethnicity, music preference, or political affiliation. Unfortunately, many of our churches reflect those same divisions. But according to Scripture, the church is a new kind of society that has been called out from every tribe, language, people, and nation to worship the Lamb (Rev. 5:9). So what are the implications of this understanding for the way we think about the ministry of the local church? Michael Horton discusses this topic with special guests Jeff Mallinson and Sam Allberry as we begin a new series titled Water & Blood.
The Family of God
Do today’s Christians focus a little too much on the family? According to Jesus, natural family relationships can actually get in the way of true discipleship, teaching that whoever loves father or mother, son or daughter, more than me is not worthy of me (Mt 10:37). On this program Michael Horton, Jeff Mallinson, and Sam Allberry unpack this issue and make the argument that our ultimate loyalty is to Christ and his family, and that the waters of baptism are thicker than the blood of kith and kin.
The Church & The Kingdom of God
According to Scot McKnight, there is a great deal of emphasis today on social activism, outreach to the poor, and various kinds of programs which people refer to as “kingdom work.” But if you try to get support for evangelism or the ordinary work of the local church, there doesn’t appear to be a lot of interest. So how did we get here? Michael Horton talks with Scot about this issue that he recently wrote about in a book titled Kingdom Conspiracy: Returning to the Radical Mission of the Local Church.
