So the tribe of Benjamin got what they deserved for this heinous crime. But not without a couple of false starts. Why did God allow the Benjaminites to win the first couple of battles? Well, when we look closely at the narrative here, we see that in the first case, the men of Israel did…

NewLSFB254: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Proverbs 21

I’m sure you noticed Solomon’s comments about living with a disagreeable woman. In some circles this is fodder for the fallacy that the Bible is anti-woman. I disagree, and here’s why. This book is written by a man who was a king with not only great wisdom and great wealth, but a large amount of…

NewLSFB253: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – 2 Corinthians 1 and 2

Do you remember the first issue that Paul talked to the Corinthians about in the last letter? There was a man in the church who was in the midst of sexual sin. In fact, it was incest. He told them that they must discipline the person and not let the sin continue or condone it….

Today, we’re going to read Judges 19. It’s a story that starts off badly, and then gets exponentially worse. It’a a story of betrayal, and then ultimately a heinous crime. I told you it was bad. A few points I’d like to touch on. Just a reminder, this took place when there was no king,…

NewLSFB251: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Proverbs 20

Pretty much each verse we read in this book of wisdom really deserves to be meditated on. Proverbs really isn’t a book that is meant to be just read through. It’s better when taken a bit at a time and then revisited again and again. Just a few comments today. Most of the verses, or…

NewLSFB249: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Judges 18

This chapter records a very sorry episode in Israel’s history. It had been a long time since Israel had entered the Promised Land, and yet this portion of the tribe of Dan had not yet taken possession of their inheritance. The reason? Likely a lack of initiative and also being satisfied with the status quo….

Have you ever considered how powerful your words can be? For some people, words come so easily that they don’t think about the impact even a casual word can have.

NewLSFB247: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – 1 Corinthians 15

In this chapter Paul addressed the most important aspect of the Christian faith. Jesus was raised from the dead. All other major religions have a founder who is dead. But the tomb of Jesus is empty.
