S7 Episode 1: To Dwell in Our Midst - Intro and Context
Why study this ancient tent? What does knowing the Tabernacle have to do with our faith on this side of the cross? Everything. From Creation, God's desire was to dwell in the midst of His people. In the middle of the wilderness, God gives Moses a way for God Himself to dwell in the midst of His people: the Tabernacle. This tent is not merely ritual or history or good information. It's essential to understanding our salvation. Our detailed and deliberate God gave us the Tabernacle because one day, He would give us Jesus. In this introductory episode, Erin Warren gives specifics about how this study is organized, tips to help you as you study, plus crucial context information that will help set the lens through which we will study. This podcast is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study. For more information and for a link to buy the book, go to feastingontruth.com/biblestudy.

S6 Episode 14: Way Maker - An Advent Study Through the Book of Hebrews (Hebrews 13)
We did it! Congratulations on finishing Way Maker and our study through the book of Hebrews. This final chapter can feel overwhelming, but this common way to end a letter isn’t a checklist for us to take inventory of our life, at least we shouldn’t start there.

S6 Episode 13: Way Maker - An Advent Study Through the Book of Hebrews (Hebrews 12)
The Shaking - that's what I have called the last couple years. The years have rocked many of us, but the shaking has purpose. As we pursue Jesus, as we run the race with our eyes fixed on Him, we remove the things that hinder us. And nothing tends to bring that out like trials. In Hebrews 12, we find encouragement for how to keep running and why to keep running after Jesus, our Way Maker. This podcast is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

S6 Episode 12: Way Maker - An Advent Study Through the Book of Hebrews (Hebrews 11)
Today we are in Hebrews 11 or as some call it “The Hall of Faith”. We often study this passage in isolation and can sometimes misunderstand what God wants from us when we do. But when we study this passage in the context with the rest of Hebrews, it brings new insight into what it means to hold fast to faith.

S6 Episode 10: Way Maker - An Advent Study Through the Book of Hebrews (Hebrews 9)
Hebrews 9 points us to the truth that Jesus is the more and better sacrifice. He is the more and better Tabernacle. For us in the 21st century, these phrases may not mean much, but to the Jewish readers of this letter, it was a powerful reminder of the finality of Jesus' sacrifice that secured eternal redemption once for all.

S6 Episode 8: Way Maker - An Advent Study Through the Book of Hebrews (Hebrews 7)
In Hebrews 7, the author continues to encourage us: Jesus is better. The promise He makes, what He did on the cross, it is better. But even more so, we get this amazing picture of what it means that Jesus intercedes for us. It's so much more than prayer. This podcast is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

S6 Episode 7: Way Maker - An Advent Study Through the Book of Hebrews (Chapter 6)
In Hebrews 6, the author of Hebrews points to how Jesus is the fulfillment of the covenant God made through Psalm 110:4. And because God cannot lie, this promise, this covenant, this oath of giving Himself gives us a great gift: hope. In this episode, Erin Warren brings clarity to what this hope is and how is anchors us during life's storms and trials. This podcast is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

In Hebrews 5, we see Jesus compared to a high priest named Melchizedek, plus some confusing passages about Jesus' obedience and perfection.

S6 Episode 3: Way Maker - An Advent Study Through the Book of Hebrews (Hebrews 2)
Hebrews 2 starts with a warning: pay close attention to what you have heard. It is because the author knows our propensity to forget. We need to be reminded of the truths of the gospel every day. We need to remember the truth of why Jesus came here in the first place and what a miracle His birth really was. He suffered and intervened on our behalf, making propitiation for our sins and running to our aide when we could not save ourselves.

S5 Episode 11: Stories from the Wilderness - Week 10 (Joshua 3-5)
The Wilderness. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines wilderness as an empty or pathless area or region. The wilderness is uncharted territory. It is the place where we feel lost, not knowing where to go because there is not a path to follow. But, as we will see throughout this study: it was not uncharted territory for the Great I AM, the Creator of the World. He often leads by way of wandering, not the most direct route. He leads in places that feel pathless and empty. Because there are some lessons about God that can be learned in the fertile soil of the wilderness. While the wilderness is often used to describe a hard circumstance in our life, as Christians, it's also a picture of our life on earth: We've been redeemed, saved from slavery to sin and we are bound for the Promised Land, heaven. But in between, we are wandering in a land that is not our home. But God does not leave us here to fend for ourselves, instead, He walks with us, before, and provides for us as we go. This podcast wraps up the Stories from the Wilderness Bible study. Erin Warren teaches through Joshua 3-5 as the Israelites cross the Jordan River and step into the land God promised to give them. They do so with trust and find God continues to go before them. But none of this was for them. The miracles, the provision, the journey: it was all for God to show them His character. It was so that they would know who their God is. It was so that the whole world, all the peoples, us included, would know who God is. And in the end, we see that the God of the Wilderness is the same God in the Promised Land. This podcast is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

The Wilderness. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines wilderness as an empty or pathless area or region. The wilderness is uncharted territory.

But, as we will see throughout this study: it was not uncharted territory for the Great I AM, the Creator of the World. He often leads by way of wandering, not the most direct route.

But in between, we are wandering in a land that is not our home. But God does not leave us here to fend for ourselves, instead, He walks with us, before, and provides for us as we go. In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Joshua 1-2. Moses has died and the Israelites are on the edge of the Promised Land. God calls Joshua up and tells him that the time has come for him to lead the people over the Jordan River and into the land God promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. God gives Joshua a charge to be strong and courageous and to remember and obey His Word, but He doesn't expect him (or us) to do this on our own. It's His presence with us that makes it possible for us to live out our faith in obedience. And then we get to see this marriage of faith and obedience lived out practically through the life of a woman named Rahab. This podcast is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Deuteronomy 31, 32, & 34. Moses and the Israelites have reached the doorstep of the Promised Land. For forty years, they wandered, but now they are preparing to enter the land promised to their forefathers. But because of his sin, Moses will not be the one leading them. In these chapters, Moses is giving his final instructions. He establishes and esteems Joshua as their new leader. He blesses the tribes and gives them a song to remember to turn back to God. But more than anything, he teaches them the importance of knowing and obeying God's Word. For it is no empty word for you, but your very life. And in the end, God graciously takes Moses up the mountain one final time to meet with Him. He shows Moses the land he will not enter and buries him there. There has never been a man like Moses, but there was a great One coming. His name is Jesus and He was counter worthy of more glory than even Moses. Jesus, our true Savior and Intercessor.

S5 Episode 8: Stories from the Wilderness - Week 7 (Numbers 20-21)
The Wilderness. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines wilderness as an empty or pathless area or region. The wilderness is uncharted territory. It is the place where we feel lost, not knowing where to go because there is not a path to follow. But, as we will see throughout this study: it was not uncharted territory for the Great I AM, the Creator of the World. He often leads by way of wandering, not the most direct route.

But in between, we are wandering in a land that is not our home. But God does not leave us here to fend for ourselves, instead, He walks with us, before, and provides for us as we go. In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches Numbers 20-21. Still grumbling over the lack of water, God gives Moses and Aaron specific instructions on how to bring water from a rock at Meribah. Perhaps in frustration, perhaps in a moment of weakness, Moses makes a grave mistake and takes glory for himself instead giving glory to God. And like the generation before who died in the wilderness, Moses and Aaron too will die in the wilderness. Later, the people grumble over the lack of "good" food and God sends fiery serpents. God again provides a way of salvation after their repentance, a bronze serpent lifted up on a pole. This is about the time I start getting tempted to say "yeah, yeah. They grumble. God punishes. They repent. God relents." Same story. Different Day. But these stories reveal something much greater: hearts that go astray and do not know His Ways. The questions raised this week are one that should pierce our own hearts. Where am I taking glory from God? What does He provide that I call worthless? Am I keeping Him n the proper high and lifted up place in my life? Both of these stories point us to a perfect Deliverer: the Son who will one day perfectly usher from the wilderness of earth into Heaven... one who will be lifted up and all who look on Him (and choose belief) will find not life for now, but life for eternity.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Numbers 13-14. I wish they were happy chapters with a happy ending and a pretty little bow. But these chapters are sad. Moses sends 12 spies into the Promised Land. When they return, ten give a mixed report: the land is good, but the people are too strong. And on the doorstep of the Promised Land, the people lock eyes on their enemy instead of their God. The consequences are great. This week, begs us to look at our own lives and ask where we are allowing unbelief to cloud our perception of God, His Word, and His unchanging character.

In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Exodus 33-34 & Numbers 9.  After breaking the covenant, the people of Israel mourn the consequences of their sin: God will no longer go with them. But Moses, intercedes on behalf of the people. These passages may be the most important in all Scripture when it comes to God's character because this is where God reveals His Name and His character with His own words and shows His merciful response to our sin. Despite our unfaithfulness, God remains faithful and true, and in His grace, cuts a new covenant with the people of Israel. AW Tozer said What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. This week beckons us to respond in humility, worship, and confession at the revelation of His Name and His character. This podcast is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

But in between, we are wandering in a land that is not our home. But God does not leave us here to fend for ourselves, instead, He walks with us, before, and provides for us as we go. In this podcast, Erin H. Warren teaches through Exodus 19. 20, & 32. As Moses and the people near Mt. Sinai, God tells them He is going to come down. He gives them a command to consecrate themselves and boundaries for their protection. Yahweh comes to make a covenant with His people and gives them ten words that will define their relationship. But the people are afraid and pull back in fear. But Moses, with reverence and a "fear of God", draws near to God up the mountain. While Moses meets with God, the people grow impatient, asking Aaron for a new god, a new mediator. Aaron fashions a golden calf and allows the people to break loose. Moses, upset over the quickly broken covenant, shattered the stone tablets and exacts justice for the sins of the people. The truth is the law was never meant to save us. No one can perfectly uphold the law. Instead it merely reveals our sinfulness. But this marriage ceremony between God and His people was a shadow of the new and better covenant God would make one day, through His Son, Jesus Christ. Because of His interceding on our behalf and His ability to perfectly uphold the law, thus becoming the spotless sacrificial Lamb, we can draw near to God.

But in between, we are wandering in a land that is not our home. But God does not leave us here to fend for ourselves, instead, He walks with us, before, and provides for us as we go. In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches through Exodus 16-17 (The Manna, Water from the Rock, Defeat of the Amalekites). The miraculous bread from heaven was not only provision to fill their empty stomachs, but a picture that points us to the True Bread that would one day come from Heaven, not for our earthly sustainment, but our eternal satisfaction. This passage also establishes the Sabbath, a day of rest that would set apart His people from world and an act of trust in God's character. As the Israelites come to Rephidim, they are once again thirsty and God meets their need on the Mountain of God despite their testing of Him. As Moses strikes the rock, water flows and reminds the people that their God has not left them. While there, the Amalekites (descendants of Esau) come to fight. Joshua and the Israelites prevail as long as Moses' arms are raised. With the help of Aaron and Hur, his arms remain raised bringing victory to the Israelites. There Moses builds an altar and calls God Yahweh Nissi - the Lord is my Banner, bringing hope, victory and refuge for His people.

He leads in places that feel pathless and empty. Because there are some lessons about God that can be learned in the fertile soil of the wilderness. While the wilderness is often used to describe a hard circumstance in our life, as Christians, it's also a picture of our life on earth: We've been redeemed, saved from slavery to sin and we are bound for the Promised Land, heaven. But in between, we are wandering in a land that is not our home. But God does not leave us here to fend for ourselves, instead, He walks with us, before, and provides for us as we go. In this podcast, Erin Warren teaches on Exodus 14-15. In Exodus 14, the Israelites experience one of the greatest and most well-known miracles in all of the Bible: the crossing of the Red Sea. While we love to make this a story of miraculous rescue and use it to show how God miraculously can also rescue us from the seemingly "no way out" circumstances, we must continue to remember this is a story about God's character. And His call to us in this story is not to sit and watch but hear and move.  We learn that where we look matters, and the result of this miracle leads the people of God toward belief and worship. But we are most vulnerable to the attacks of the enemy when we are rejoicing in victory. In Exodus 15, we see a song of praise melt into shouts of complaint at Marah. The people are thirsty, but God is after our hearts. He provides not only sweet water, but a place of refreshment and rest. Both stories point us to the only source of our salvation: Jesus. We must continue to lock eyes on our Savior before us and not the circumstances around us. This video is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

S5 Episode 2: Stories from the Wilderness - Week 1 (Exodus 12-13)
The Wilderness. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines wilderness as an empty or pathless area or region. The wilderness is uncharted territory. It is the place where we feel lost, not knowing where to go because there is not a path to follow. But, as we will see throughout this study: it was not uncharted territory for the Great I AM, the Creator of the World. He often leads by way of wandering, not the most direct route. He leads in places that feel pathless and empty. Because there are some lessons about God that can be learned in the fertile soil of the wilderness. While the wilderness is often used to describe a hard circumstance in our life, as Christians, it's also a picture of our life on earth: We've been redeemed, saved from slavery to sin and we are bound for the Promised Land, heaven. But in between, we are wandering in a land that is not our home. But God does not leave us here to fend for ourselves, instead, He walks with us, before, and provides for us as we go. In this video, Erin Warren teaches on Exodus 12 and 13 (The Passover, the Exodus, the Pillar of Cloud, and the Pillar of Fire). After nine consecutive plagues and nine negative answers from Pharaoh, God gives one final act of judgement in the plague of the death of the firstborn. But, God would provide a way for His people, the people of Israel, to escape the plague. The way because a feast of remembrance: the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. In the wake of tragedy, Pharaoh and the Egyptians force the Israelites out in the middle of the night, with a special provision provided by God. God leads the people not on the short route, but purposely by way of the wilderness. He does not leave them there alone. Through the stories in Exodus 12-13, God miraculously proves His character as He births a nation. This video is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

The Wilderness. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines wilderness as an empty or pathless area or region. The wilderness is uncharted territory. It is the place where we feel lost, not knowing where to go because there is not a path to follow. But, as we will see throughout this study: it was not uncharted territory for the Great I AM, the Creator of the World. He often leads by way of wandering, not the most direct route.

But in between, we are wandering in a land that is not our home. But God does not leave us here to fend for ourselves, instead, He walks with us, before, and provides for us as we go. In this video, Erin Warren sets up the Stories from the Wilderness study, including how to use the study book and the study format. She also discusses the important context information to help set the lens through which we will study (who wrote it, what's going on in history at that time, etc) and recaps Genesis 46-50 and Exodus 1-11 to lay the groundwork for our first week of study. This is often story we see as a list of what not to do. We judge the Israelites harshly for the way they continue to complain and question. But this is not their story. It's the story of God, the Redeemer and Faithful One, and throughout the coming weeks, we will see Him reveal and prove His character over and over and over again. We will see that the God of the Promised Land is the same God in the Wilderness. This video is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

TRAILER: Season 5 - Stories from the Wilderness
The wilderness. It is a place that feels hard, empty, lifeless and pathless, and it often leaves us with questions about who God is. But while we see a place that is worthless, confusing, and chaotic, God sees a place to display His power. Time and time again throughout Scripture, God takes the worthless, seemingly wasteful, confusing, chaotic, and empty places and uses them as a backdrop to prove His character, draw us in, and display His glory. This 11-week study follows the narrative of the wilderness story through parts of Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy and Joshua and focuses on the character of the One who led them there. It designed to help you: Release the bonds of a “perfect quiet time” to find deeper, richer time in the Word Build confidence as you learn how to study the Bible first-hand Discover truths about God and His character Grow in your faith and knowledge in a way that produces life change There are some lessons about God that can only be learned in the fertile soil of the wilderness, and we will see that the God of the Promised Land is the same God in the Wilderness.

S4 Episode 8: Light & Life: A Study of Psalm 119 - Week 8
Psalm 119:153-176 (Resh, Sin & Shin, Taw) continues to builds on previous stanzas. We have seen a growth of passion and depth of maturity develop throughout the Psalm, and it brings us to the final (and somewhat unexpected) end this week. But through it all, the Psalmist continues to show how knowing God’s Word (and knowing it is true and eternal) brings life even when faced with affliction. Knowing God’s Word brings abundant peace, keeps us from stumbling, and results in complete worship. And we can humble ourselves before our Great Shepherd. His Word is Light & Life.

S4 Episode 7: Light & Life: A Study of Psalm 119 - Week 7
In Psalm 119:129-152 (Pe, Tsadhe, & Qoph), we see a maturing, a life that is steadily step by step, day by day, following after God. He continues to see God’s Word as guide, a light that gives understanding and exposes our sin. He has a right view of God, and our view of His character shapes our response to His Word. Finally, he prays. But at the end of it, it's about the nearness of God and a life lived in long obedience in the direction of His Word. It builds a firm and secure foundation - one that never changes and remains pure and blameless for all eternity. This podcast is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

S4 Episode 6: Light & Life: A Study of Psalm 119 - Week 6
In Psalm 119:105-128 (Nun, Samekh, Ayin), we see the Psalmist (most likely David) point again and again to His steadfast pursuit of God’s Word - to know it, to understand it, to seek the One who wrote it. He knows the benefit of a life that does not walk away from the Word. Even when his timeline doesn’t match God’s, it is His reverence and awe and Holy fear that keeps him following God. He holds both grace and truth, forgiveness and justice in his hands as he walks through life. And the result is a life that focuses on the eternal. He loves God’s commands, and that leads to a life that loves truth and a life that hates any other way. This podcast is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

S4 Episode 5: Light & Life: A Study of Psalm 119 - Week 5
In Psalm 119:81-104 (Kaph, Lamedh, & Mem), the psalmist reaches his most desperate point. The plea for his life, for justice, and for saving mark the middle point of this poem. Yet, he still clings to God’s Word. As we move into the second half, the script flips and we see an incredible picture of Creator God, the One who established this earth and keeps it in motion and holds it together. And if He can hold this world together, He can hold you together in your hardship, trials, and affliction. What a picture of the God who not only walks with us through suffering, but preserves our souls in the midst of it too. This podcast is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

S4 Episode 4: Light & Life: A Study of Psalm 119 - Week 4
In Psalm 119:57-80 (Heth, Teth, and Yodh), we see a common theme: I’m not enough without God. And He can be trusted, even when we are smeared with lies or walking through affliction. We often ask “Why is this happening?” Or “Why do bad things happen to good people?” But God uses suffering. Suffering leads us to God, and there are some lessons about God we can only learn in the fertile soil of suffering. We get the choice: we can run away from the One who has all we need or we choose to trust Him, lean into Him, and allow Him to teach us the truth of who He is through His Word.

S4 Episode 3: Light & Life: A Study of Psalm 119 - Week 3
In this week’s study of Psalm 119, we read through He, Waw, and Zayin. We see an incredible prayer that points us to what God can do in our lives when we humbly approach His Word and ask for God to show us more His character. No matter what affliction, trial, hardship, darkness we are facing, He is there: the God of ALL comfort, the God of Truth, the One who steadfastly loves us. Studying through the lens of who God is in Psalm 119 is firmly rooting us in Truth, so that when these trials come, we can be ready to answer the enemy with the truth of who God is.

Our first full week of study was an incredible one. We start with a young man, eager and ready to learn but move toward a man who is desperate for God to reveal Himself while he is in the midst of hard circumstances. This week really challenged me in how I respond to God and the cries of my own heart when faced with trials. God’s Word brings life and so much more, and our gracious God is faithful to answer to the prayer “Show me more of you.” This video is a companion to the Feasting on Truth Women’s Bible study.

S4 Episode 1: Light & Life: A Study of Psalm 119 - Week 1
Psalm 119 tells us that the unfolding of His Word gives light (v. 130) and by it, we have life (v. 93). Light & Life. In this first session, Erin Warren shares the context and background for Psalm 119 and walks through the first stanza (verses 1-8) as an example of how this study works. We often think of the Law of the Old Testament as obsolete, but obedience of His Word matters. Because Jesus perfectly obeyed the Law, as we are becoming more like Jesus, we also move toward obedience. This video is part of the Feasting on Truth Women's Bible study.

S3 Episode 11: The Gospel of John - Chapter 21
We did it! We made it through the entire Gospel of John. Chapter 21 is widely considered an epilogue to this book. John has cultivated these stories to lead us to belief. But what now? What do we do once we know Jesus is Messiah and Son of God? We can often over interpret this passage, but the call Jesus gives us here is really quite simple.

S3 Episode 10: The Gospel of John - Chapter 20
HE IS RISEN! In chapter 20, John brings to the pinnacle of the story: death did not win. The grave is defeated and we no longer fear. Jesus is alive! And with this seventh and final sign, He forever proves that He is who He says He is. He is the Christ, the Son of God and believing in Him brings life. As word spreads of the empty tomb, doubts and confusion rise. But Jesus tenderly and deliberately meets with His disciples and leads them back to Himself. And John concludes this passage with his purpose for writing it all down: so you will believe. He leads us again to that point where we must decide for ourselves.

S3 Episode 9: The Gospel of John - Chapter 19
John 19 is one I wish somedays I could skip. I want to jump right to the Resurrection and the light and the joy of that Sunday morning. It’s hard right from verse one to read in detail what our Jesus suffered. But as Matthew Henry says, "It is good for every one with faith, to behold Christ Jesus in his sufferings. Behold him, and love him; be still looking unto Jesus.” As Jesus hangs on that cross, He does something we could never do for ourselves. And through His death, it is finished. His death paid a debt that we could cover and purchased for us a freedom more than just forgiveness of sins or heaven. He became the Way Maker. This chapter, like Chapter 18, held so many little details I had never seen before. It’s what I love about this format of Bible study. The slow reading of Scripture allows it to marinate in our hearts and minds.

S3 Episode 8: The Gospel of John - Chapter 18
This week we are in John 18 and as we move not only toward the cross in Scripture, we are moving toward Easter on the calendar. I love this holiday and it’s a good time to reflect and remember what Jesus’ sacrifice accomplished. Studying John has forever marked my faith in Him and that’s John’s intent: that you would believe Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God and that you would have life in His name. I felt like I was reading this passage for the first time - there were so many details in this passage I never noticed before (including a little dig at Peter) and I know I’ve read these passages over and over. That’s what I love about studying Scripture this way and slowly studying. There is so much irony in this passage today, and we see again John lead to the decision point: will we believe? Or will we choose our own way? This video is a companion teaching to the Feasting on Truth women's Bible study. For more information, go to www.feastingontruth.com/biblestudy.

In John 17, Jesus prays not only over His disciples, but over all who would come to faith in Jesus Christ. That's us! This prayer gives us an incredible picture of Jesus and what He does for us. In the midst of sorrow and fear, He reassures them (and us) that they are Kept, Guarded, Sanctified, One and Glory Bearers.

He tenderly and patiently guiding their sorrow filled hearts toward joy and promises peace, even in the midst of the hardships that are coming.

S3 Episode 5: The Gospel of John - Chapter 15
This passage is a favorite among Christians: Jesus' call for us to abide. As Jesus walks closer to the cross, He continues His charge to His disciples, but not without reminding them again the only way to love and do as He did is to remain connected to the True Vine. Abiding is not another activity or "to do;" it's an invitation. This podcast is a companion teaching to the Feasting on Truth women's Bible study.

S3 Episode 4: The Gospel of John - Chapter 14
If I could use one word to describe John 14 it would "radical." As Jesus continues preparing and encouraging His disciples at the Last Supper, He takes their religion and flips it on its head, not only changing the way they relate to God, but also promising them His presence in a way "common men" had never experienced before. It's radical love. This podcast is a companion teaching to the Feasting on Truth Bible Study for women. You can find more information at www.feastingontruth.com/biblestudy.

In John 13, we move into what is often called "The Last Supper". John dedicates five chapters to this night as Jesus gives His final encouragement and instruction to the eleven disciples. And He starts with love: first He models it, then He calls them to do it. But the secret to being able to love one another may not be what you think.

Chapter 12 of the Gospel of John is a full one! With fifty verses and several stories, it can seem overwhelming. But as Jesus approaches "the hour" and if we keep John's intent for writing this book in mind, we will see a thread leading us not only to the cross, but pointing us to belief in Jesus as King, Messiah, and Son of God. This chapter also causes us to ask some hard questions of ourselves as we reflect on what it means to follow Him. This podcast is a companion teaching to the Feasting on Truth Bible Study for women.

S3 Episode 1: The Gospel of John - Chapter 11
While Martha gets a bad rap, here John points to her solid faith, and Jesus speaks His fifth I AM Statement to this grieving sister: I AM the Resurrection and the Life. Jesus knows going to Bethany will ultimately lead to His death, but He goes willingly to lay down His life for His friend (as He said He would in John 10). The result of this miracle brings great glory to God but also sets in motion a string of events that will eventually lead to Jesus’ death.

The Shaking - that's what I have called 2020. It's a year that has rocked many of us, but the shaking has purpose. As we pursue Jesus, as we run the race with our eyes fixed on Him, we remove the things that hinder us. And nothing tends to bring that out like trials. In Hebrews 12, we find encouragement for how to keep running and why to keep running after Jesus, our Way Maker.

But even more so, we get this amazing picture of what it means that Jesus intercedes for us. It's so much more than prayer.

S2 Episode 7: Way Maker - Hebrews 6
In Hebrews 6, the author of Hebrews points to how Jesus is the fulfillment of the covenant God made through Psalm 110:4. And because God cannot lie, this promise, this covenant, this oath of giving Himself gives us a great gift: hope. In this episode, Erin Warren brings clarity to what this hope is and how is anchors us during life's storms and trials.

S2 Episode 6: Way Maker - Hebrews 5
In Hebrews 5, we see Jesus compared to a high priest named Melchizedek, plus some confusing passages about Jesus' obedience and perfection. But further cultural study helps us better understand not only the model Jesus gave us for suffering, but also how He is the more and better Melchizedek.

S2 Episode 5: Way Maker - Hebrews 4
These verses in Hebrews 4 have been some of the most comforting as I've walked through trials over the last few years. We not only have a Savior who left His throne, became our intermediary, and paid the price of our sin, but He is able to sympathize with us and hold us together during life's storms. And the author of Hebrews encourages us again: don't let go of that. Hold fast to that.

S2 Episode 4: Way Maker - Hebrews 3
In Hebrews 3, the author is calling us to "consider Jesus" - not just think about following Him, but rather to set our focus on Jesus. Not just one time, but every day. The Gospel is a daily choice; we must constantly turn our minds to Jesus, to remember Who He is and why He came. The author of Hebrews continues to push us toward the idea that Jesus is better than any other choice and he does that in passage through a comparison to one of the greatest men in the Jewish faith: Moses.

S2 Episode 3: Way Maker - Hebrews 2
While Hebrews 1 focuses heavily on Jesus as Fully God, in the second chapter He establishes Jesus as Fully Man. And not just any man: one who suffered yet was perfect. And it was His sacrifice as our High Priest that was necessary to satisfy the wrath of God, forever defeating not only death, but the one who holds the power of death. As a result, we no longer are slaves to fear and sin. As the author of Hebrews reminds us: this is a message for every day. Not just a decision we make one day to follow Jesus, but we must continually remember.

S2 Episode 2: Way Maker - Hebrews 1
While many letters written during the first century start with the author of the letter as a way to establish their authority, Hebrews starts with Jesus. It's as if he is saying "It's not about me; it's about Jesus." The author of Hebrews gives us this power-packed picture of Who Jesus is and why He is worth following. He leaves no question: Jesus is God the Son and His place and His authority are above all. In this companion teaching to the Feasting on Truth Bible study titled Way Maker, Erin H. Warren explains the character of Jesus found in this passage and also gives the background information that helps us understand how Jesus became the Way Maker, making purification for sins, and sitting down at the right hand of the Father.

S2 Episode 1: Way Maker - Intro and Context
Christmas is finally here!

This Advent, Feasting On Truth is going through the book of Hebrews with the focus on Jesus as the Way Maker.

Bonus Episode 1: From Death to Life - Truths About God's Restoration
In this Flashback Bonus Episode, I share a message from Christmas 2018. God gave me the word Restore that year – I thought “Yes – Joel 2:25 – I will restore the years the locust ate.” But I quickly learned that restoration doesn’t mean getting back all the things you lost. It means stripping, sanding, abrasion – think more like restoring an antique table. The Greek definition of the word restore is “to adjust down to fully functioning.” That year I learned restoration isn't additive. Over and over, God brought Ezekiel 37 to mind. That is how I felt most of that year: I felt like that valley of dry bones – out in the desert. But God is not bound time and location. Our life’s circumstances do not limit God. He can move in any situation at any time. Here are four truths from Ezekiel 37:1-14 about God's Restoration that I think will encourage you today in the midst of 2020.

Episode 11: The Gospel of John - Chapter 10
In John 10, Jesus not only makes two “I AM” statements, but arguably His boldest, most clear statements about Himself. While we can got lost in the language and imagery of this chapter, at the heart, it’s a story comparing our Good Shepherd, to ones who failed to shepherd well. This week closes our study for the Fall but also this particular section where John puts together a collection of stories to show how the Jewish Feasts and Festivals point us to Jesus. The first section of this chapter take place at the end of the Feast of Tabernacles; while the second occurs during the Feast of Dedication, or Hanukkah.

Episode 10: The Gospel of John - Chapter 9
Jesus has just claimed that He is the Light of the World and that whoever believes in Him will never walk in darkness. Then in John 9, He does a miracle that literally shows what He does for us: how He makes the blind to see, not just physically, but spiritually as well. John continues to point to Jesus as Messiah and that He is fully God. This chapter is rich with symbolism! While the religious leaders continue to question, ignoring truth, we see this man, who walked in literal darkness, go from blind to seeing. Not only does he behold light, but He beholds the True Light. This podcast is a companion to the women’s Feasting on Truth Bible study. For more information, go to FeastingOnTruth.com/BibleStudy.

Episode 9: The Gospel of John - Chapter 8
In John 8, Jesus makes His second “I AM” statement: I am the Light of the World. He says these words on the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles, and once again, uses an imperfect, insufficient earthly example of how He fulfills for eternity. But we also see His kindness and tenderness toward a woman caught in her sin. It’s a beautiful picture of how He responds to us as well. And then again, we see the religious leaders debating with Jesus about who He really is. They kept missing it, and John continues to point us to the truth: Jesus is Messiah, sent from God, to save us all. Jesus is truth.

Episode 8: The Gospel of John - Chapter 7
In John 7, all of Jewish people have converged in Jerusalem for the fall feast: the Feast of Tabernacles. This jubilant celebration was one of the most joyous times in Jewish year. And it is here, in the midst of this elation, that Jesus stands up for all to hear and makes a bold claim. It’s one we heard Him make in a private conversation at a well in Samaria; now He proclaims it for all to hear: He is the source of Living Water. He shows them how this feast is picture of Him, their Messiah. This podcast is a companion teaching for the Feasting On Truth Bible study.

Episode 7: The Gospel of John - Chapter 6
John Chapter 6 is a long one! Honestly, this chapter could be a study on its own. But these 71 verses give us such a picture of Jesus as our sustaining life-giver. I love how John juxtaposes these three stories together: the Feeding of the 5,000, Jesus walking on water, and His teaching in Galilee that He is the Bread of Life. It gives us this beautiful picture of how Jesus is the more and better manna and the fulfillment of Passover. This podcast is a companion teaching to the Feasting on Truth Bible study through the Gospel of John. For more information, go to www.FeastingonTruth.com/biblestudy.

SPECIFIC QUESTIONS FOR CHAPTER 6: How is Jesus the fulfillment of Passover? (Refer to Exodus 12 if you need more insight) How is Jesus the more and better manna? (Refer to Exodus 16 if you need more insight) What does it mean that Jesus is the Bread of Life? (Relying heavily on the cultural understanding of bread) How is Jesus our essential nourishment and sustenance for life? What are the things we often turn to to satisfy us temporarily?

Episode 6: The Gospel of John - Chapter 5
John 5 marks the start of a new section of stories, but John continues to point us to Jesus as Messiah. In this passage, we see Jesus talking about the Sabbath, but even more so: how He and the Father are one. It can be confusing and hard to understand, but the heart of Jesus’ words again point us to this: Jesus is True. Jesus is God. And He came bring to life. For more information on this Bible study, go to FeastingOnTruth.com/biblestudy. This week, I mentioned Stacey Thacker’s new book which released this week! I cannot say enough about this book. It combines two of my favorite things: God’s Word and prayer. Go to staceythacker.com/threadbare-prayer for more information.

What characteristics of God are displayed in this passage? What did God draw your attention to this week? SPECIFIC QUESTIONS FOR CHAPTER 5: Read Matthew 11:25-30, 12:14 - What is this rest Jesus is talking about here? How is Jesus the Lord of the Sabbath? How does His coming redefine Sabbath? How should we treat Sabbath? To help: Jesus is releasing them from the ritual and law of Sabbath - true rest for our souls is found in knowing our eternity is secure in Him - not in a works-based faith, but in grace and forgiveness. We do not have to carry that burden anymore. That then should affect how we Sabbath, why we Sabbath, and how we walk this out in day-to-day trust of Him. Jesus continually puts people (healing people, reconciling people) over tradition and ritual. Where do we tend to put tradition (things that are religious in nature but not in scripture) over caring for and reconciling people to Him? Or what do we prioritize over God Himself? Read Hebrews 2:1 - What is the difference between His Word abiding in us and us drifting? How do we protect ourselves from this happening? WHAT IS OUR RESPONSE? Our response isn’t always a “to do” - How is God calling you to respond to these truths this week? Because God (or Jesus) is __________, I can _________.

Episode 5: The Gospel of John - Chapter 4
In John Chapter 4, we read about Jesus' conversation with a Samaritan woman, a woman who had no hope of fitting in or belonging, a woman who was desperate, a woman looking for earthly satisfaction. Yet Jesus, putting aside cultural rules, met her and made the greatest statement about Himself. We also see the power and truth of His Word in a miracle, the saving of a young boy's life. One conversation, face-to-face; one sign, performed at a distance. Both both us to our Messiah.

Episode 4: The Gospel of John - Chapter 3
John Chapter 3 contains the world's most famous Bible verse, but studying John 3:16 in context provides a deeper insight. This story is the gospel, yes, but it's a powerful picture of what Jesus' coming meant. The visual Jesus gives of Moses lifting the serpent in the wilderness, the comparison of darkness and light, and John the Baptist's well-known words of Jesus all point us to the truth of Who Jesus is: Messiah, Savior, Sovereign, Life, and Light.  For more information on this Bible study, go to FeastingOnTruth.com/BibleStudy.

Episode 2: The Gospel of John - Chapter 1
John Chapter 1 is packed with truths about who Jesus is. Remember, John is writing with the intent on showcasing the deity of Jesus and we see him doing that right out of the gate. There are three main sections to this passage this week, but each one has the same purpose: declaring Jesus as God.  Here are links mentioned in today's episode: Bible Project Videos on John: VIDEO 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-2e9mMf7E8&t=180s VIDEO 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUfh_wOsauk For more information on the Bible study, visit www.FeastingOnTruth.com/biblestudy To purchase the Feasting on Truth Inductive Bible Study Journal on Amazon, click here. ----- GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: What does this passage say?
