Part 1 - 09/12/16

We can know for certain that God’s Word is true

Skeptics give various reasons why the Bible is not reliable, including that 30- to 60-year time gap between when the events of Jesus’s ministry happened and when they were written down. Today on Discover the Word, we are joined by author and seminary professor Darrell Bock as they “mine the gap,”  showing why,  as Luke’s gospel tells us, we can “know the certainty of the things we’ve been taught.” Be part of the group today on Discover the Word.

Part 2 - 09/13/16

Is there reward in true repentance?

What do you think of when you hear the word, repent? Today on Discover the Word, we will, along with our guest Darrell Bock, discuss how our limited understanding of repentance keeps us from reaping its full benefits. As we read in Luke chapter one, the path to healthier relationships is often through the door of repentance. Explore what that means when you tune in today on Discover the Word!

Part 3 - 09/14/16

Forgiveness is a transition

Most believers would say that John 3:16 is the most important verse in the Bible. But today on Discover the Word, the group, along with author and seminary professor Darrell Bock, gives us new insight into another 3:16 . . . Luke 3:16. In a sense, it may be as important as John 3:16, as it shows how forgiveness is not a one-time transaction, but a transition. Explore why that’s so significant as our study in Luke continues on Discover the Word!

Part 4 - 09/15/16

What’s your spiritual temperature?

No one likes going to the doctor. But the more we hurt, the better that visit looks! Today on Discover the Word, the group and guest Darrell Block examine Luke 5:32, where Jesus uses the analogy of a doctor visit to help us take our spiritual temperature. Are you in need of a visit to the doctor? Listen in today on Discover the Word!

Part 5 - 09/16/16

Recognizing our need for God!

“You gotta have faith!” Tough to argue with that, but what does that mean, exactly? Today on Discover the Word, the group and guest Darrell Bock discuss how faith is more than a belief in the truth. At faith’s core is the humble recognition of our need for God, 24/7. Join us for Discover the Word!

Part 6 - 09/19/16

A needed perspective

Imagine you’ve gone back in time and you’re watching Moses part the Red Sea, after observing all the plagues that convinced Pharaoh to let the Israelites go. Many believers wish they could have witnessed those dramatic miracles. But today on Discover the Word, the group, and our guest Darrell Bock give us a needed perspective on what we have now versus what they had back then. Be listening on Discover the Word.

Part 7 - 09/20/16

Appreciating the great debt Jesus paid for you

Are you struggling in your Christian life? Could it be you’ve developed a “pinch of spiritual entitlement”? Today on Discover the Word, the group and guest Darrell Bock remind us how appreciating the great debt Jesus paid for us can cure us of that entitled feeling and get us back on the right track spiritually. Tune in today to Discover the Word!

Part 8 - 09/21/16

“Miracle in reverse”

Author and seminary professor Darrell Bock says that all the accounts of the miracles of Jesus recorded in the New Testament start with the miracle and end with the audience’s reaction to it, all except one. Today on Discover the Word, the group and guest Darrell Bock discover the significance of this “miracle in reverse.” Tune in today.

Part 9 - 09/22/16

What did Jesus mean when he said he would “sit at His Father’s right hand”?

Today on Discover the Word, discover what Darrell Bock means by a “cultural script” and how a “cultural script” in a statement by Jesus provided the Jews with all the motivation they needed to plan His arrest and death. Join the group and their guest Darrell Bock as they explain the cultural significance of Jesus saying He would “sit at His Father’s right hand.” A fascinating conversation, today on Discover the Word!

Part 10 - 09/23/16

What’s the one word you associate with the gospel?

What one word do you associate with the gospel and salvation? Many would say “grace” or “rescue” or “forgiveness.” But there’s one word the New Testament uses that might surprise you! Today on Discover the Word, the group and guest Darrell Bock reveal what that word is and why we need to know it! Be part of the discussion today on Discover the Word!
