Episode 7 discusses the practical difficulties of prayer, the over-emphasis of "The Lord's Prayer" and five progressive realizations about God that build an effective prayer life. The Bible Study examines the content of Paul's prayers in Ephesians 1 and 3 and Colossians 1.
Episode 6 discusses the meaning of "The Gospel" and why "it is the power of God unto salvation." It has been defined by God. It has been incarnated in Christ. It isn't an idea or a philosophy. The gospel is the ultimate reality, the transcendent truth of all truth. The Bible Study of John 4 examines the gospel's impact on the Samaritan woman.
Episode 5 deals with evangelism and the church's tendency toward "come and see" and crisis-point conversions. We discuss the Biblical meaning of "disciple-making" and in the Bible study of John 17, we look at Christ's high priestly prayer from the perspective of a disciple maker.
Episode 4 deals with the question of worldview and how our beliefs about the Bible, the Church, the Kingdom and Sin influence our view of the world and the way we live day to day. The Bible Study of Romans 5 and 6 demonstrates how God deals with the problem of sin and sins in the life of the believer.
Episode three gets to the heart of the dichotomy between "the church" and "the Kingdom" and considers Arthur Glasser's proposition that "Only by pursuing a Kingdom ministry can one keep “churchly” activities in rightful subordination to the will of God." The Bible Study looks at Christ's preaching of "The Gospel of the Kingdom" in Matthew 4 and how Matthew's gospel unfolds with the inauguration of the Kingdom on Earth.
Episode 2 asks "Who is the church for?" (believers or unbelievers) and "what is church for?" (believers' activities or making disciples.) A Bible study of 2 Timothy 1:8-14 examines Paul's disciple-making relationship with Timothy and his instruction for TImothy to entrust what he had learned to faithful men who would teach others.
