The Bible Study Hour
Five miracles surrounded one of the pivotal moments in human history - darkness, an earthquake, a great tearing, the dead walking, and the unlikely cry of a Roman soldier. Today, on The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice will explain the unearthly events that attended the death of Christ.
Golgotha was a grim place. It was a place of crucifixion, skulls, blood and death. Today on The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice will take us through the story of King Jesus’ execution at Golgotha, and he’ll help us see past these gruesome images to the great hope it brings to us all.
Pilate wasn't a follower of Jesus. He wished only to remain neutral, and innocent of Christ's blood. But he couldn't remain neutral... and neither should we. Coming up on the Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Montgomery Boice will explain Pilate's unfortunate failure in the courtroom, where he was far from neutral and farther from innocent. In a moment of great conflict and crisis, Pilate condemned the Son of God to death. Today, Jesus stands before each of us every bit as much as he stood before Pilate long ago. Is He the King of Kings, or isn't He?
Judas spent years with Jesus. He heard Christ's teaching firsthand, witnessed his miracles, and saw his perfection. Yet Judas perished miserably in his sin. Coming up on the Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice will use the life and death of Judas to teach about true repentance. Remorse and repentance are not the same thing. Remorse involves only regret and guilt, and even Judas felt it. Repentance is something more... repentance leads from death to life.
The great Apostle Peter, founding father of the early church, bold and zealous disciple, swore repeatedly that he had nothing to do with Jesus! That he did not even know him! During this broadcast of the Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice will help us see the 'Peter' in us all. Like Peter, we will fall, but we will only fall temporarily. Like him, true believers will rise and follow Christ again.
The trial of Jesus Christ before Jewish authorities was a travesty- complete with mockers, haters, liars, and ruffians. It is, nevertheless, indisputably in the past. Today on the Bible Study Hour, Dr. Boice will unravel the the seedy web of characters and motives from that distant trial, finally pulling its relevance forward to today with one question...What will you do with Jesus? Join us now for the Bible Study Hour.
Today on The Bible Study Hour with Dr. James Boice, we’ll ask the question, “If Jesus had the power to avoid the cross, why didn’t he?” And we’ll find that the answer is all about obedience. In a world where decisions are made primarily on the basis of whatever is convenient and whatever feels good at the time, we have a lot to learn from Jesus’ sacrificial submission to His Father’s will.
Theologians may debate about the details and minor points of specific church doctrine, but at the core of the Christian faith, there is one central truth that validates all the rest. On this broadcast of The Bible Study Hour with Dr. James Boice, we’ll identify this one, powerful reality…and we’ll discover why it’s the basis for our entire belief system - and the reason we celebrate Easer.
Our human nature is quick to question and slow to believe. Cynicism is indeed our default mode, which explains why we say things like “it’s just too good to be true.” In fact, it’s also exactly how “Doubting Thomas” got his name! On today’s broadcast of The Bible Study Hour, we’ll prepare our hearts for Easter as we discover how love came to the rescue on the day that faith died.
At Christmas we celebrate Christ, born as a baby. And the miracle of Easter is that He rose from the grave. But in between these events, the Son of God lived a very human life – one full of common experiences like exhaustion, hunger, temptation and even sorrow. Today on The Bible Study Hour with Dr. James Boice, we’ll find Jesus, desperate and alone, just hours before his arrest.
What is the “new covenant” that is spoken of in Scripture and what did one quiet, simple meal in an upper room have to do with it? In this broadcast of The Bible Study Hour with Dr. James Boice, we’ll learn how, in just a few powerful words spoken over the breaking of break and fellowship with his disciples, Jesus effectively explained the entirety of God’s redemptive plan for mankind.
