John Whitcomb: March 30, 2020

This week on “Encounter God’s Truth,” we turn once again to the classic Bible teaching of author and theologian Dr. John Whitcomb. We hear him open to the Minor Prophets and provide more Old Testament background to Christ’s presentation in Luke 24, which was first shared on the road to Emmaus. His message goes on to apply this vital Biblical truth to each of us, explaining why every listener must have a dynamic encounter with God’s truth. You see, like the disciples who met Christ on that road following His resurrection, we must also appropriate God’s promises in our personal lives. Following the lesson, host Wayne Shepherd shares Dr. Whitcomb’s answer to a question as to how we can counter the lack of interest in serious Bible study that appears to be growing in our time. Thanks for listening to “Encounter God’s Truth”! Each week we build our faith solely upon God’s Word—which is true from the beginning to the end.
