THEME VIDEOS

The Day of the Lord

Does God care about all of the evil humans perpetrate in our world, and if so, what is He doing about it? In this video, we trace the different ways that God confronts human evil and the even deeper spiritual evil that underlies it.

Heaven & Earth

What does the Bible really teach about heaven, and what is heaven's relationship to earth? In this video, we explore the surprising biblical viewpoint that heaven and earth were meant to overlap, and how Jesus is on a mission to bring them together once and for all.

Hope

In the Bible people who have hope are very different from optimists! In this video, we'll explore how biblical hope looks to God's character alone as a basis for trusting that the future will be better than the present.

2 Corinthians

Watch our Read Scripture video on 2 Corinthians, which breaks down the literary design of the book and its flow of thought. In 2 Corinthians, Paul resolves his conflict with the Corinthians by showing how the scandal of the crucifixion turns our value systems upside-down.

    • What all does the Promise of Divine Healing cover in us? Physical? Spiritual?
    • How does the atonement fit into our healing?

SACRIFICE AND ATONEMENT

God is on a mission to remove evil from His good world, along with all of its corrosive effects. However, He wants to do it in a way that does not involve removing humans. In this video, we trace the theme of God's "covering" over human evil through animal sacrifices that ultimately point to Jesus and his death and resurrection.
