John Whitcomb: November 7, 2016

We open Part 1 of our final lesson in our study of “Christian Evidences” this week, and its title will tell you much about our focus in this message. It is called, “Truth is Ultimate.”

Our teacher, Dr. John Whitcomb, shows us that there are many things that we may do and provide in ministry and our attempts to witness for others, and these things may be very helpful—even essential. But they are all insufficient unless we base our ministry upon God’s Word—which is infinitely sufficient and, as we proclaim every week here on “Encounter God’s Truth,” it is true from the beginning to the end.

Host Wayne Shepherd introduces our message, which was first presented at Appalachian Bible College in Mount Hope, West Virginia. 

We thank you for listening and sharing this program. May the Lord bless you as you do!

Dr. Whitcomb was born on June 22, 1924, in Washington, DC, to Col. & Mrs. John C. Whitcomb Sr. His early years (age 3 - 6 years) were spent in China. During high school he attended McCallie School in Chattanooga, TN. He spent one year at Princeton University before being drafted into the United States Army, where he served in Europe from 1944 until 1946. After the war he returned to Princeton and earned a degree in history. While at Princeton in February 1943, he came to know the Lord under the guidance of Dr. Donald B. Fullerton and the Princeton Evangelical Fellowship. Dr. Whitcomb entered Grace Theological Seminary as a student in 1948 where he earned a MDiv in 1951, ThM in 1953 and ThD in 1957.
