The Bible Study Hour
Leadership is not easy. Even great leaders can feel inadequate and afraid. This seems to have been true for Joshua. Four times God told him to be strong and courageous as he took command of the people and prepared to launch an invasion. On The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice teaches on the four ingredients of a great leader.
Who succeeded Abraham Lincoln? Who followed after Winston Churchill? We often overlook those that follow the great ones of history. Moses was followed by an often overlooked, but brilliant hero of the faith - Joshua. On The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice will launch a new series entitled "Joshua: We Will Serve the Lord."
If you have heard it and received it and by the grace of God believed it, the Gospel is not something to hold as a treasure just for yourself, but something to share with others. On The Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice inspires us to spread the Gospel to a dying world. This is The Great Commission.
If it's a real resurrection, it's a real body. And it is only the resurrection of a real body that amounts to anything at all. Today on the Bible Study Hour, Dr. James Boice will dismantle the hazy notions of the resurrection, and display a resurrection worth believing in... and even dying for.
The tomb was sealed; the guards were posted; the barricades were placed. Both the chief priests and Pharisees were determined that there would be no resurrection of the dead man Jesus. We study the life, death, and resurrection of Christ - but why not the burial? Does it hold meaning for us? Dr. James Boice will take us, as keen observers, to the burial of Christ.
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?
