Numbers 5–8: On How Moses’ Test for Adultery Is Different Than Monty Python’s Test for Witches (Bible Talk, Ep. 44)By A. Duke, J. Hamilton, S. Emadi | 12.01.2021
In Numbers 5–8, Israel is still revving its engine, preparing to enter the Promised Land. For now, we read about a strange test for adultery, the genesis of the Nazirite vow, and Aaron’s blessing, one of the most well-known passages in the whole Bible.
Jonathan Leeman and Mark Dever talk to Josh Manley and John Folmar about Christianity in Afghanistan and the UAE, and the necessity of pastoral patience.
By the time we get to the beginning of Numbers, Israel is poised to take the Promised Land. But first, they need to receive their marching orders.
Church members ought to know their missionaries. How can pastors facilitate that relationship?
Every pastor knows they should apply the text. How should we do it well? How can we do it better?
In this episode, Mark interviews Jonathan about our new Journal—Sound Doctrine: The Foundation for Faithful Ministry—and, in particular, his very long Editor’s Note, which focuses on the problems of the “deconstruction” project.
In this Pastors Talk episode, Jonathan chats with Mark about “Nine Marks of a Healthy Church”, and how this hardcover edition introduces two “additional” marks.
“Jesus is not who you think he is.”
In this episode Jeremy goes through the mailbag, asking a wide variety of questions submitted by listeners to Dave and Ed.
We’ve come to the end of Leviticus.
In a previous conversation, Jonathan chatted with Mark and Bobby about the value of going slowly down the road toward pastoral ministry, of being “filtered.” In this follow-up conversation, they discuss a host of other topics: character qualifications, marriage, biblical knowledge, devotional life, and more.
In the Old Testament, the Lord wants his people to be holy as he is holy (Lev. 20:26). That means sacred lives, but it also means he them to be marked of by sacred times and sacred places.
The path to being a pastor is often slow—and that’s a good thing!
Leviticus 17–20 covers a lot: goat demons, the meaning of blood, Molech, the holiness of God, and loving your neighbor as yourself. How does it all fit together?
Jonathan Leeman chats with Mack Stiles, Brooks Buser, Scott Logsdon, and Aubrey Sequeira about two diverging approaches to the obeying the Great Commission.
