John Whitcomb: March 16, 2020

In Luke 24, we find the record of the Lord Jesus expounding the Old Testament Scriptures—from Genesis all the way to Malachi—and pointing to Himself as the fulfillment of all that is found in them by way of prophecy. On this week’s edition of “Encounter God’s Truth,” we hear the classic Bible teaching of theologian Dr. John Whitcomb, who echoed this theme as he traced more of the Old Testament lessons that Christ would have appealed to on that first resurrection day. In this amazing passage, Christ speaks to the disciples on the road to Emmaus, explaining why it is so vital that each of us have a personal encounter with God’s truth. We trust that this broadcast will likewise stir you in your relationship with the Lord. Dr. Whitcomb also addressed new Christians, sharing insights as to how they might begin to seriously study the Bible. With host Wayne Shepherd, Whitcomb Ministries comes to you each week on “Encounter God’s Truth”—encouraging you to listen, because God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end!
