This podcast is designed to give you a basic understanding of God, the Bible, and Christian beliefs. J. Dwight Pentecost said, “There is no higher activity in which the mind may be engaged than the pursuit of the knowledge of God.”
Let’s start out reading the Word of God Itself. Today’s passage of Scripture is Acts 10:34 which reads: “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.”
Today’s words from a theologian are from Philip Schaff. He said: “Jesus Christ is the beginning, the middle, and the end of all. In the Gospels he walks in human form upon the earth, and accomplishes the work of redemption.”
Our first topic for today is titled “Did God Really Make Everything? (Part 5)” from the book, “Understanding Theology in 15 Minutes a Day” by Dr. Daryl Aaron.
What can we learn about creation from the doctrine of creation? Again, that there is meaning and purpose in all God has made — especially human existence. In addition, everyone and everything is totally dependent upon God for existence itself. We are not self-sufficient — we are radically God-dependent, even for our very next breath. This means we are to look to him and trust him for what we need in every dimension of life.
Our second topic for today is titled “Theology of the Synoptics (Part 5)” from “The Moody Handbook of Theology” by Dr. Paul Enns.
— Introduction to Synoptic Theology: Matthew
Author: There is early support suggesting that Matthew, the tax col-lector, originally wrote in Aramaic, an important testimony for the priority of Matthew. Approximately A.D. 150, Papias, bishop of Hierapolis, testified: “So then Matthew composed the oracles in the Hebrew language, and each one interpreted them as he could.” Origen stated that Matthew was prepared for the “convert of Judaism, and published in the Hebrew language.” Irenaeus stated that Matthew wrote while Peter and Paul were still alive; Mark wrote after they had died.
