Theology Thursday

Theology Thursday

Welcome to Theology Thursday: We present select Bible studies and sermons from Pastor Bob Enyart of Denver Bible Church teaching from Scripture that:
- God is eternally free, inexhaustibly creative, and has existed from everlasting
- His main biblical attributes? He is living, personal, relational, good, and loving
- Proper hermeneutics flow not from Greek and Latin philosophy but from the primary biblical attributes of God
- The Bible explicitly affirms marriage and condemns moral relativism and all immorality including homosexuality
- As God is a person and created us in His likeness He expects us to stand for the personhood of the unborn
- God presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ, based on the death penalty, in Bible's context of criminal justice
- The Bible is not a science text (for they have to be corrected all the time) but instead is scientifically accurate. Enjoy!

ThThur: Acts of the Apostles Pt 3

From Israel to the Body: Today Bob presents the third of a series from his verse by verse study of chapter one of the book of Revelation.

 

 Today's Resource: The Book of Acts

Welcome to our study in the Book of The Acts of the Apostles. To summarize the book of Acts in one sentence: The Kingdom of Israel Fades as the Body of Christ Grows.

To say simply that Acts is the story of the beginning of the church is to give a half-truth, for first, God offers the Earthly Kingdom to Israel and when that nation rejects their own risen Messiah, then God cuts off Israel, and grafts in the Body of Christ, replacing the covenant of law with the covenant of Grace.

Who were the major Apostles?

Jesus chose the 12 Apostles, Peter, James, John and the rest, and as He promised them, they would sit on 12 thrones, and judge the 12 tribes of Israel.

On the other hand, for the Body, Paul is the one apostle for the one Body of Christ, and neither Paul, nor the Twelve Apostles, will rule over us, but Christ alone is the head of the body, whereas Israel, as a political entity, as a kingdom, can employ 12 judges.

The title of the Book, The Acts of the Apostles, could be focused more precisely. It could be the Acts of the Apostles, Peter and Paul. For most of the Twelve Apostles, Luke the author of this book, mentions only their names, and that, only once. Whereas Peter and Paul are the main actors.

In Acts 1 through 8, Peter is the primary actor and through Peter God offers the Kingdom to Israel.

In Acts 9, God saves Paul and sends him to the Gentiles and it is only through Paul’s ministry that God tells us about the Body of Christ and the dispensation of Grace.

As The Acts opens, it’s all Peter and then as God cuts off Israel and grafts in the Gentiles in the Body,
the story transitions and as Peter fades out, Paul replaces him as the primary actor.

The Book of Acts is the story of the transition from Israel to the Body of Christ. Get this entire verse by verse Bible study in four parts.

Theology Thursday: 1st Thessalonians Chap. 1 Pt 1

* Post-Show Announcement, Filming Begins Soon: Filming begins in three week for "The Reliant", the movie from long-time BEL friend Patrick Johnston starring Kevin Sorbo, Brian Bosworth, and The Benham Brothers! Patrick has begun one last crowdfunding campaign. Will you please share on social media the link TheReliantMovie.com and also consider donating so that the producers don't have to sacrifice any quality in the telling of this amazing story?

 This story is a non-stop, action-packed dramatic full feature movie that is:
- pro-life/pro-personhood
- pro-gun rights
- with a powerful story of redemption and grace
- highlighting the notion that lesser civil authorities are duty-bound to resist federal tyranny
 
Please help Patrick Johnston, Kevin Sorbo, Brian Bosworth, and The Benham Brothers, tell this story! Dramatic cinema is arguably the BEST way to impact the culture for life, for liberty, and for the Gospel. We aim to harness this tool to tell a story that's never been told before, almost prophetic in its realism, carefully avoiding the "cheesiness" that has crippled many movies in the faith-based genre. 
 
Share the link with your contacts and on your websites. TheReliantMovie.com.
 
They only have three weeks left!

Theology Thursday: 1 Corinthians Chapter 1 Pt. 3

1 Corinthians: Today Bob presents the conclusion of a 3-part series from his verse by verse study of chapters one 1 Corinthians.


Today's Resource
: 1 Corinthians

Join Bob as you hear Paul demanding intolerance of sexual immorality within the church. Then ponder Paul's insistence that we judge all things, great and small. And for those who believe that Christians are no longer under the law, how do they explain Paul?s command to flee immorality? Then hear the surprises that come with the New Testament?s most thorough discussion of marriage and divorce, celibacy and intimacy. What caused Paul to give his converts hints on how to interact with Peter?s converts? Also, considering that the Jerusalem Council explicitly reinforced the Mosaic Law's prohibition on the eating of meat sacrificed to idols, why would Paul give permission to Christians to eat a meal in a restaurant located inside an idol's temple? Finally in this material, Paul instructs his converts to win those under law, if need be, by willingly submitting to the law.
