John Whitcomb: February 11, 2019

This week on “Encounter God’s Truth,” Dr. John Whitcomb begins to examine one of the most important topics that we as Christians can ever consider. The question is, which is greater—truth or love? So far in our series on “God’s Truth Circles,” we have seen the model for Biblical disciple-making personified by the Lord Jesus and copied by the Apostle Paul, and this week we will build on that and learn more about the implications of the Great Commission—as given by Christ and re-stated by Paul. Our host Wayne Shepherd also asks Dr. Whitcomb about the School of Tyrannus, where Paul taught his disciples, according to Acts 19:9 and 10. His questions are: What kind of school was this, why did Paul teach there and why was his ministry there so effective? God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! Thanks for listening to it here on “Encounter God’s Truth.”
