The Via Dolorosa

Let’s take a walk together.

More precisely, let’s you and me take a walk together with Jesus.

After hearing this PODCAST, you will never think of Jesus’ final steps the same way again.

That’s a promise!!!

His name was Pontius Pilate. And as you will hear in this PODCAST, he was not a nice man.

This is the man to whom Jesus was handed over to be crucified.

This is the man who will live long in infamy.

This is the man who caved to political pressure in order to preserve his position of power, even if it meant crucifying an innocent man who though He was God, held no position.

This is the man who metaphorically drove the nails into Jesus’ hands and feet, and a stake through the heart of Peter. Peter, whose faith would fail spectacularly in the face of Jesus’ trumped-up charges.

There is a lot going on here, every salient detail of which will enhance your Easter season enormously.

May God bless you richly as you listen.

Caiaphas’ House

In our run-up to Easter, please join us in this week’s PODCAST as we follow Jesus step-by-step on this Virtual Israel Study Tour through the final hours of Jesus’ life.

Last week, we joined Peter in the seclusion of the Garden of Gethsemane. This week, we’ll meet again in the courtyard of the High Priest.

Gethsemane

Easter is almost upon us. Consequently, for the next four weeks, I would like to take you on a virtual tour of four places that factored most prominently in Jesus’ final hours.

In this PODCAST, we will visit the Garden of Gethsemane together.

From there, we will move in the coming weeks to the house of the High Priest, the Antonia Fortress, and finally–on Easter weekend–we will walk together on the stones of the Via Dolorosa.

I will be privileged to serve as your humble, awestruck tour guide. My prayer is that with every step we take, we will again and again be reminded that the Bible is God’s written record of…

Real people who lived in real places, who had real experiences, all of which point to a real God.

Walking in the Wilderness: How a Voice in the Funeral Home Changed EVERYTHING

This morning I am (once again!) literally walking where Jesus walked.

But I have not left you PODCAST-less.

Here’s a glimpse into my sizable soul during my two years of wilderness wandering.

IOW, how I lost my faith completely, and got it back vibrantly.

May my story be an encouragement to your own. God bless you as you listen.

“Render Unto Caesar…”

As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, it’s always been a delicate and debatable dance — a Committed Christ-Follower’s relationship to the government.

This tension forms a theme that meanders throughout the pages of the Old Testament. It spills over into the Gospels and Acts. It’s certainly mentioned in several epistles, as it is here in 1 Peter.

Fortunately for us, the Bible is quite clear, concise, and unambiguous on this topic.

Please remember that depending upon your web browser and connection speed, it might take up to 60 seconds for this podcast to begin to play.

May these words, humbly offered, be a blessing to and in your life.

“Remember Lot’s Wife!”

The Dead Sea (Satellite View)

So many questions.

And as you will hear in this PODCAST, so many stunning answers.

Just to whet your appetite, just a few of the questions (that will indeed be answered in this podcast):

  • Did God engage in genocide—the wholesale slaughter of innocent men, women, and children?
  • What does the Bible actually say about homosexuality?
  • What is the real reason that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah?

A Man From Whom We Can Learn a Lot

“Lot’s wife,” set against the backdrop of the Dead Sea.

May I share with you an observation?

As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, the observation is this: The precision of Bible is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

A precision that goes down to the level of its individual words and phrases.

Case in point—The. Precise. Phrase that Peter used here in 1 Peter 2:11 to describe us as committed followers of Jesus. Peter wrote,

“You are foreigners and strangers on this earth.”

As you will hear, a most remarkable statement, the ramifications of which are wide-reaching, the depths of which we will only begin to plumb in this message.

“He ALWAYS Shows His Mercy!”

I will simply say that if you want to know what it should look like to be a committed follower of Jesus, This.Is.It.

In this PODCAST, you will hear the Apostle Peter highlight what is IMHO the attribute of God most often overlooked.

My preparation for this message was for me life-changing. As you hear this message, may it be a blessing in your life as well.
