Welcome to Teaching Thursdays! Today is episode 81 of the Better Bible Reading Podcast entitled "A Greater King". As we continue our study of the gospel according to the Old Testament, we talk about the third office of the Old Testament that Jesus fulfills: King. We'll look at the relationship between Jesus and the most notable king in the Old Testament, king David. This episode emphasizes the way that David placed his eyes on Jesus as the true heir to the throne.
After Moses, the next key figure in the Old Testament is King David. David was the standard of the kingship in Israel’s history. Some examples of this are the...

Welcome to episode 79 of the Better Bible Reading Podcast with Kevin Morris! Today's episode is entitled "A Greater Prophet". As we continue our study of the gospel according to the Old Testament, we turn to the office of prophet to see how Jesus fulfills both the message of the Old Testament prophets, and the office of prophet itself in His earthly ministry. While there are many prophets in the Old Testament, the central prophet who anticipates a fulfillment of his own ministry is Moses. Today we will learn why this is important and how it enhances our view of Jesus' earthly ministry.

Bearing one another's burdens is tricky business. We might embrace the extreme of micromanaging people's lives in the name of 'helping'. Or, we might compromise truth and holiness by affirming everything someone does in the name of 'love'. Today, let's talk about a balanced approach that avoids both extremes. We'll find this balance in the book of Galatians chapter 6.

Do church denominations matter? Our answer will directly affect the way we think about the Bible, God, and corporate worship on Sunday mornings. Obviously, it's a question worth asking, and especially one worth answering with strong conviction. To help us think through this, I sit down with my friend Stephen Spinnenweber, pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Jacksonville Florida.

The psalms of ascent describe the care of God to His pilgrim people as they dwell on the earth. Today's episode focuses on Psalm 128, which describes God's people as people full of joy and trembling. We are told that God blesses those who fear the Lord and displays Himself in their corporate lives, including their families and their churches. This Psalm is a great encouragement for Christians to live as a city on a hill in the midst of a world that has a low view of marriage, children, and Christian community. This is episode...
How often do you associate beauty with prayer? Most of us don't think about prayer in this way, but we have a great example of someone in church history who used beautiful, poetic phrases to speak to the Lord.
We find this in the writings of Augustine, specifically in his monumental book The Confessions. But why should we desire to pray by using the most beautiful and poetic words imaginable in speaking to God? Because when Augustine does it, he uses scripture!
