• What’s the deal with the Holy Spirit?

    Jesus raises from the dead, then has to leave. And this greatly concerns the disciples, but in comes the Holy Spirit. We kick off today’s episode talking about the importance of the Holy Spirit and the significance of the event of Pentecost.  Do you have questions for us? Send an email to askgoingdeeper@gmail.com. 

  • Why did Jesus have to die?

    To the everyday observer, having the leader of a religious movement get killed by the government should put a stop to the spread of that movement. But it wasn’t so with Jesus. Jesus’ death on the cross paved the way for his message to spread over the entire world, and in the end, be the ultimate hope for humanity. Do you have questions for us?

  • The Miracles of Jesus

    Jesus performed many miracles during his ministry on Earth. Often times, we try to explain the miracles so that they fit in our understanding of the natural world. In this episode we talk at length about how it’s ok for the miracles to be miraculous. We also welcome Josh Mandrell as a guest on the podcast. Do you have questions for us?

  • Jesus and the Law

    What is the law? What does Jesus mean when he says he came to fulfill the law? Some very difficult questions get raised in this episode, as we discuss the nature of Jesus’ comments on the law, and how it still affects us today.  Do you have questions for us?

  • Into the New Testament

    Jesus fulfilled many Old Testament prophecies. Now, having read through the Old Testament, we see just how present Jesus was throughout history, even before he arrived in the flesh. But if there’s still any doubt, we kick off our New Testament section of the E100 reading plan with John 1:1, confirming that Jesus, in fact was and is a part of the eternal Godhead.   Do you have questions for us?

  • The Truth about Prophets and Prophecy

    The Prophets often get misunderstood about who they were and what their original purpose was. In this episode we discuss why they wrote and spoke, and how it impacted the original hearers and readers, and how we can read and apply their writings today.  Do you have questions for us?

  • Psalms and Proverbs

    Today we talk about the Psalms and Proverbs. Of all the books of the bible, these two stand out as significantly different from the rest of the canon. Not only should we read them differently, but the way we apply them to our lives is different. Do you have questions for us? Send an email to askgoingdeeper@gmail.com.

  • Repentance and Reconciliation

    The story of David and Bathsheba is one of the most salacious stories in the old testament and runs the gamut of ways we can choose to ignore God’s path, but it ends with a powerful example of accountability, repentance and reconciliation. We also spend time talking about the powerful events surrounding Elijah and the Prophets of Baal.

  • Give us a King! No, not that King!

    The books of first and second Samuel introduce us to the first two human kings of the Nation of Israel in the persons of Saul and David. It’s a powerful story of quickly we can lose sight of what God desires for us when we insist that our ways are better than God’s. We also see the stark contrast in the character of these two kings, and how it impacts their failure, and success. Do you have questions for us?

  • How Quick We Forget!

    Today we make our way through the book of Judges. It’s heavy reading, but the lesson we learn here is that we as humans are quick to forget, as evidenced by the cyclical nature of how the nation of Israel remembered, followed, abandoned, and repented in the stories of the Judges.  Do you have questions for us?

  • Holy War and the Holiness of God, Revisited

    Today we return to the book of Joshua as part of the E100 series, and we revisit the issues that arise while the Israelites are taking the promised land. There’s discussion of Holy war and what it means, and how it played a role in the book of Joshua. We also have some challenging discussion about the Holiness of God and how it’s not always easy to understand God’s decisions, but how we’re still to trust that God sees the bigger picture.  Do you have questions for us?
