Passage: Acts 16:1-5
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 11 mins 26 secs
Had Paul lost it and was he out of his mind when he had Timothy circumcised? Hadn't he just argued successfully that circumcision no longer mattered? Listen to this lesson and follow the timeline of Paul's thinking. See how Timothy having a Jewish mother was important in Paul's decision. Learn the significance of circumcision to God's covenant with Abraham and how it has ethnic and cultural values today, but never for salvation or spiritual life.

God's thoughts are not our thoughts so no wonder we're full of questions. Listen to this lesson to learn answers from the Apostle Paul to two burning questions. Find out how God opened the floodgates of blessing to the world through the Gentiles and understand the illustrations of the lump of dough and the root of the olive tree. Hear how Christians and Jews were both involved in the Zionist movement to return the Jews to the land and rest in the knowledge that the gifts and the promises of God are irrevocable.

Passage: Matthew 4:17-25
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 52 mins 9 secs
Do you picture disciples as somehow being bathed in a holy glow? Listen to this lesson to learn what being a disciple actually means and how it's a possibility for all believers. Analyze the difference between being a casually curious student of the Bible or becoming profoundly committed to studying and applying the Word of God. Realize that while salvation is a free gift, discipleship always involves a cost that can't be sugar-coated. If you're ready to come on-board, accept that a disciple's life isn't always going to be smooth sailing but that it's ultimately a life of great gain.

Listen to this lesson to learn how this astonishing message was taught to believers to show them how they must confront the full rigors of discipleship. Learn about the future Kingdom of Heaven. Discover the five interpretative frameworks for this discourse and which one is most logical. See how our role of ruling and reigning with Christ is determined by what we do on earth and how this leads to a richer, fuller life today.

Me! Me! Gimme a gift! Who doesn't love to get a gift? Listen to this lesson to learn about an extraordinary gift, a spiritual gift, graciously bestowed on each of us by God when we trust in Christ as our Savior. See that the purpose of this gift is not for bragging rights or to make us look good in the eyes of others but to be used to benefit other believers in our local church. Learn the different words used to describe these gifts and how these gifts are for Church Age believers only. Understand that through spiritual growth and the transformation of our thinking we come to exercise our spiritual gift fully in service to God.
2014 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference

Series: 2014 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 41 mins 56 secs
The distinction between Israel and the church is the theological sine qua non of Dispensationalism. Yet in recent Progressive Dispensational writings, this distinction has become less clear. This is because they claim that the church is fulfilling promises made to Israel or at least they have argued for partial fulfillment. This claim is problematic for two reasons. First, the claim is not clear. Does it mean that a promise is fulfilled in part? The Davidic covenant is fulfilled in part since Jesus was born and anointed the Davidic heir. But neither the leaders accepted Jesus’ claim to be king at the triumphal entry nor was he enthroned on the Davidic throne by Israel (Deut. 17:15). Thus the promised Davidic heir came but neither the kingdom nor the throne appeared. The other possibility is that there is partial fulfillment. But was Jesus partially the Davidic heir? Was Jesus partially enthroned? This seems unlikely. So neither option is a valid alternative of fulfillment.

Passage: 2 Corinthians 13:5
Series: 2015 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 16 mins 26 secs
Second Corinthians 13:5, one of the most hotly contested verses in the entire Bible says, "Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!" Most understand this verse as exhorting the idea of perpetual self introspective spiritual analysis in order to ascertain if one is truly a Christian. This point of view emanates from interpreters who adhere to Reformed Theology, Lordship Salvation, or Hyper Calvinism. These systems place a high premium on perseverance in good works as the authenticating sign of being a genuine believer. In other words, they teach that all true believers will inevitably persevere in good works. Thus, ever increasing good works demonstrate the genuineness or authenticity of an individual's spiritual status as a true child of God. If the good works are not plentiful in someone's life, then perhaps they are not a true child of God. Perhaps they are a mere professor of Christ rather than an actual possessor of Him. Thus, in this system, 2 Corinthians 13:5 means that we should engage in chronic spiritual inventory in order to ascertain the abundance of a changed life and good works. If they are not present, then perhaps we were never saved in the first place.
