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.”

Today’s passage of Scripture is Romans 5:5 which reads: “And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”

Today’s words from a theologian are from Robert McAfee Brown. He said: “The Church cannot be content to live in its stained-glass house and throw stones through the picture window of modern culture.”

Our first topic for today is titled “How Does God Work in the World? (Part 1)” from the book, “Understanding Theology in 15 Minutes a Day” by Dr. Daryl Aaron.

The Bible teaches that, having created the universe, God continues to be at work in it. He does not abandon it or leave it to operate on its own; rather, he continues to be intimately and actively involved. This is generally known as the doctrine of divine providence, which, more specifically, is regularly described by means of three related ideas.

Our second topic for today is titled “Theology of the Synoptics (Part 6)” from “The Moody Handbook of Theology” by Dr. Paul Enns.

— Introduction to Synoptic Theology: Mark

Author. The early church gave strong witness to John Mark’s authorship of the second gospel. Papias, writing at about A.D. 150, stated: “Mark, having become the interpreter of Peter, wrote down accurately everything that he remembered.” Irenaeus, writing about A.D. 185, stated: “Now after their decease (Peter and Paul), Mark, the disciple and interpreter of Peter, also handed down to us in writing what Peter had preached.”
