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!

ThThurs: 1 Kings Pt. 2

What We Believe and Why We Believe It* 1 Kings: As David's life is draining from him, the nation of Israel is set to enter its most terribly trying times. His son Solomon becomes king with a reign so horrific that he fills Judah with altars to pagan gods and his harem of 1,000 women scoffs at God's command that no monarch should multiply wives. Why are the chapters of sacred history filled with such wickedness? Many theologians have claimed that God actually decreed that His own servants would violate His own commands. This Bible study of First Kings, however, allows the Scriptures themselves to expound on the reason for their disobedience. Lessons for the Christian fill this book, from how to gain wisdom, to learning why wisdom alone is insufficient, to the building of the Temple, to the political and moral lessons from Ahab and his wife Jezebel, and ultimately, to the mighty ministry of the Hebrew prophet Elijah, from the fire on Mt. Carmel to hearing the still small voice of the Lord!

ThThurs: Book of Ruth Pt. 2

What We Believe and Why We Believe It* Ruth: "Now it came to pass, in the days when the judges ruled," that the world gained its oldest book of romance. Ruth's love story tells the world's love story. Ruth became King David's great-grandmother. And since Ruth is not a Jewish woman, but a Moabitess, her inclusion in Christ's genealogy (Mat. 1:5) raises interesting questions. Further, Ruth's mother-in-law, Rahab, had been a Canaanite prostitute. Skeptics dismiss the Bible as exclusionary and unforgiving. But students know the truth. The marriage proposal in this book, from a well-established Jewish man to a widowed Moabite woman, symbolizes God reaching out to fallen man. Boaz, a type of Christ, symbolizes Christ's role as man's redeemer. The Kinsman Redeemer perpetuates the name of the dead, raising up life where there was only death, an inheritance where there was none.

ThThurs: Joshua Pt. 2

What We Believe and Why We Believe It* Joshua: After the death of Moses, God calls on Joshua to lead the Israelites across the Jordan River and take possession of the promised land. God guarantees victory in the military campaign and vows never to leave the Israelites so long as they obey his laws.  Available on MP3-CD or download.

ThThurs: Exodus Code Pt. 3

What We Believe and Why We Believe It* Exodus Code: On the day Moses delivered the Ten Commandments about three thousand souls died (Exodus 32:28). And on the day that God gave the Holy Spirit, about three thousand souls were saved (Acts 2:41). Explaining that contrast, Paul wrote that the law kills but the Spirit gives life (2 Cor. 3:6,7,17). That Law of the Ten Commandments is the basis of an entire criminal code revealed in Exodus. But it doesn't end there. Contained within the document that convicts the world, Salvation is found. Join Bob for an insightful study that considers the deep meaning of the Exodus Code.  Available on MP3-CD or download.
