John Whitcomb: August 29, 2016

Host Wayne Shepherd takes us back to our very first radio program in this special edition of “Encounter God’s Truth.”

It was a program that was drawn from the book of Acts and entitled, “The Beginning of Something New.” This series was meant to explain the motivation behind our new radio outreach, and you may have expected our speaker, Dr. John Whitcomb, to share his vision for the broadcast in that first message. But—in typical fashion—he jumped right into explaining the powerful section of Scripture that we focused on in Acts 1.

We are currently “Celebrating Five Years of EGT” in a special anniversary series—this week offering thanksgiving for “The Goodness of God.”

Wayne adds a few additional thoughts about our history, and closes the program with a question for Dr. Whitcomb about God the Father’s role in the discussion in Acts 1.

How we rejoice in the opportunity that the Lord has given us for five years—to meet with you weekly and share the message that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end!
