Classic Christianity – The Book of John P03 (02-08-23)
The Word, Jesus Became Flesh
~ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

We Are Under the NEW Covenant of Grace Not the Old Covenant of the Law
~ “For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.”Hebrews 9:15
~ Thank God, He is NOT counting my sins against me!
~ “And we’re told in Hebrews. Let me just read, it’s hard to read when you’re in the wrong chapter, Hebrews 9:15, do you want to turn to it. For this reason He is the mediator of a New Covenant in order that since a death had taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of in eternal inheritance. For where a covenant is, there must of necessity be the death of the one who made it. So what did Jesus have to do before he got usher in a New Covenant, a new agreement between God and man. Had to die. And when he … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

The Holy Spirit Reveals the Meaning of the Word of God
~ “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for teaching [doctrine], for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”2 Timothy 3:16
~ It’s so vitally important for us to understand that without the Holy Spirit of God living in us, we cannot understand the meaning of the Word of God.
~ “But what it means has to be taught by the Holy Spirit of God into our lives today. And if we do not depend upon the Spirit to teach us what it means, we are not going to know what it means. Do we know what it says? Absolutely. You can read it and know what it says. A computer knows what the Bible says. Anybody who reads it knows what it says the issue is, what does it mean? Now we’re told in the epistles, that no eye has seen, nor ear has heard, nor mind is conceived of those things that God has prepared for those who love Him. But it must be what? revealed by who? The Spirit. So the Spirit … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 6 (04-10-19)
Bob George shares from John 2 about the miracle of water turned to wine. This was Jesus first miracle when he started his public ministry at age 30. Many have heard what John had spoken concerning Jesus as the Messiah. They heard him say, “behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” When they saw this miracle there were those who believed in him. For no one can do what he did.
Bob also shared several passages in the synoptic gospels showing that Jesus had brothers and sisters. John 2:12, Matthew 13:55-56, Mark 3:31-32, John 7:1-6, and Mark 3:20-21 all record that Jesus had brothers or sisters. How important it is to stand firm in the word of God for truth and not rely on the traditions of men. When people deny what is so clearly stated and obvious in the scriptures, then what other errors are people willing to believe. That is the case with Catholic teaching that claims Mary was always a virgin and also that Mary is a co-redeemer with Jesus. That is heretical teaching. Such teaching is not found in the word … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 5 (04-09-19)
Bob George continues now in the book of John, chapter 2. He paused briefly to explain that Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are referred to as the synoptic gospels. These gospels provide further details that are left out in the book of John. Each of the gospels had a different viewpoint since written to a different audience. Matthew was writing from the standpoint of legal rights to the Messianic throne. Luke provided a detailed account on the life of Christ. Mark wrote primarily to the Gentiles. John was written in 95 A.D. at the end of John’s life about the love of God.
In the first 18 verses, you read about the beginning and the word of God. Then in verse 19, you read John’s testimony.
John 1:19-20 19 Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders[c] in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. 20 He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, “I am not the Messiah.”
In between this time and prior to verse 19, you read in the other gospels other details such as John baptizing in the Jordan river and … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
