Our Story With God, Episode 22: Jesus as Savior

Have you ever flipped through one of those baby name books?  When my wife was expecting each one of our daughters, we would spend some time looking at tons of names and tried to come up with something that would sound nice, be a bit original, and have a strong meaning.  Do you know what Jesus' name actually means?  "Jehovah is salvation".  Why do you think His name mattered, to Him and to us?  This week we look at where the name came from and what that would mean for Christ.

Our Story With God, Episode 21: Son of Man

What does your name mean?  Do you have a nickname?  What about Jesus?  Isaiah gives us many descriptions about how He would be known: wonderful counselor, mighty God, everlasting Father, and prince of peace.  But did Jesus want to be known a certain way?  Yes!  He made that clear by what He called Himself most often.  Why does that matter to us?

Our Story With God, Episode 20: Jesus as Creator

We've reached the 20th week of our study, and I'd like to thank each of you who take the time to listen each week.  I hope you're getting as much out of this as I have. This week we're going to start looking at some of the aspects of Jesus that the Old Testament has been telling us about ahead of time.  Last week we saw how Jesus was born, but now we look at whether that was really the beginning.  John 1 tells us that Jesus was there at the beginning - what does that actually mean?  And what has He done?  Our Story With God, Episode 20

Our Story With God, Episode 19: God With Us

God's personal entrance into the creation He made was nothing short of incredible, but Scriptures indicate that not everyone was ready.  Only a few people seemed to have picked up their invitations and showed up to witness such a great event.  For many, the expectation of the Messiah was not enough to impact daily life.  For the first small groups who encountered Jesus, however, it was a momentous occasion.  Emmanuel had come!  Our Story With God, Episode 19
