John Whitcomb: April 23, 2018

Dr. John Whitcomb concludes his presentation of a concept that he calls “God’s Truth Circles” this week on “Encounter God’s Truth.”

These messages are helping us to understand more about how Jesus and the apostles dealt with people who were at various levels of learning and belief in the truths of Scripture. This gives us a model for knowing how we should approach people today, and it also informs us as to how we are to handle and teach the treasures found in Scripture—or, as Dr. Whitcomb refers to them, “the deep things of God’s precious book, the Bible.”

This is part of our new series called “Basic Biblical Distinctions.” It builds upon the foundational principle that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end.

Host Wayne Shepherd expresses our appreciation to Grace Bible Church in Elkhart, Ind. Dr. Whitcomb preached these messages to that congregation, and we appreciate their help in broadcasting them here on “Encounter God’s Truth.”
