Dr. John Whitcomb: February 15, 2016

Dr. John Whitcomb provides prophetic details about the Lord Jesus—our great, true prophet and shepherd—and tells how His people find their ultimate comfort, rest and provision in Christ. You will hear that and much more in this edition of “Encounter God’s Truth” from Whitcomb Ministries, where we teach that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. This is the next installment in Part 4 of our series called “Zechariah: The LORD Remembers.” As emphasized by host Wayne Shepherd, we are grateful to bring you this material, which was originally presented live at Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut. As Dr. Whitcomb states, “The good shepherd has to die for the sheep.” Have you received this good shepherd—Jesus Christ—by faith? If not, we urge you to do so today. And if you have, we encourage you to use this broadcast to share the hope of eternal life with others. Thanks for listening to “Encounter God’s Truth”!
