The Big Book–Cover to Cover: Judges

We've moved through the Pentateuch (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy) and into the Historical Books. If you missed our study of Joshua, listen and review Show Notes Here. Today, we're looking at Judges, which has often been referred to as the darkest days in Israel's history. Judges is a tectonic shift in the storyline, as we look at a generation who doesn't know God.

The Big Book–Cover to Cover: Joshua

We’ve covered the Pentateuch and if there’s a takeaway I want to make sure you have, it’s that it’s a corpus of literature, not five individual books. So often we think of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy as 5 books – but there’s a continuity that carries through each one: Genesis: The beginning of creation Exodus: Redemption from slavery, consecration for worship Leviticus: Holiness to the Lord Numbers: Understanding the allotments and order God has given for the Levitical priests Deuteronomy: The second law-giving and recap of the Hebrews' history. Today we move from the Pentateuch to the Historical Books, beginning with Joshua. To read Show Notes from this episode, visit: http://michaelincontext.com/cover-to-cover-joshua

Bonus Episode: Understanding God's Word with Dr. Tom Constable

One of my goals for the big book cover to cover study was to emphasize some of the things that maybe are key to a book, but are not necessarily addressed as you've listened to the podcast. Today I'm thrilled to have Dr. Constable here and to answer some of my questions and to talk about the creation of his outlines, which are available to us online for free. You can find links to Dr. Constable's outlines in our Show Notes: https://michaelincontext.com/understanding-gods-word-tom-constable

Bonus Episode: Understanding God's Word with Dr. Tom Constable

The Big Book–Cover to Cover: Deuteronomy

Moses leads his people as far as he will be allowed to go toward the Promised Land and is buried by God in the book of Deuteronomy. This book is much more than a second-telling of the law. It's a recounting of Israel's history and an underscoring of who God is, and what He's promised. Join us as we look today to the fifth and final chapter of the Pentateuch.

Bonus Episode: Reading Numbers Like a Historian, with Dr. Mark Chavalas

Joining us today is historian and professorDr. Mark Chavalas. His research over the past decade has focused on inter-connections between ancient Mesopotamia along areas as Anatoly, Iran, Egypt, Palestine, etc. And what he brings to the table is a focus from a bronze-Syrian age to the third millennium. And all that means to me is: How do we think about the Old Testament from a Syrian-Babylonian perspective? How does a Historian read this text? Join us as Dr. Chavalas helps us to make sense of this book we call Numbers. To read the Show Notes from this episode, visit: https://michaelincontext.com/numbers-historian/

Bonus Episode: Reading Numbers Like a Historian, with Dr. Mark Chavalas

The Big Book–Cover to Cover: Numbers

Years ago Cindy and I visited the church we had attended in college and heard Dr. Waltke. As he was preparing to teach, he warned he would be reading a lengthy passage of Scripture and encouraged us: "While I have been nervous about this reading, I want you to remember, ...this is a page of the Word of God and it deserves our attention." As we dive in to an overview of the book of Numbers, let's be reminded that this is the Word of God. Join us as we look at this important journey of the Israelites through the wilderness.

Bonus Episode: Modern-Day Sabbath with Jody Capehart

As we saw last week, Leviticus - though often approached with dread - offered its first recipients a welcome reprieve and freedom. The Law revealed all that was needed to know how to worship a holy God. It’s not just formalism. It’s holiness. Jody Capehart joins us in this episode to help us see how Christ is reflected in the festivals decreed by the Lord in Leviticus, and invites us to incorporate rest into our upcoming holiday season. Jody Capehart is an educator at heart and is known as "The School Whisperer" as she encourages, equips, and empowers teachers, students, and parents. Jody founded a number of Christian, classical schools and served as a Head of School for 45 years. Jody served as a minister to children for 8 years. Jody is an author of 15 books on education and parenting including international translations. Many thanks to Jody for sharing her wisdom and her time with us!

Bonus Episode: Modern-Day Sabbath with Jody Capehart

The Big Book–Cover to Cover: Leviticus

To the first recipients, Leviticus offered freedom from the burden of the Law through instruction for confession and worship. The Pentateuch––the first five books of the Bible––is a whole in five parts. We might even say it's one book with five chapters, and Leviticus is one of them. Leviticus is a trip-up for a lot of us. It's the shortest "chapter" in the Pentateuch literature, and even still, we sometimes approach it with dread. We tend to look upon the law as overwhelming if we think we are to measure up to it; but we look to the Lord with awe and wonder when we realize He was the one and only perfect sacrifice and the fulfillment of the Law. Join us today as we look at this important book. To review our Show Notes for this episode, visit:

The Big Book–Cover to Cover: Exodus

It may be a surprise when we realize that technically only about two chapters of Exodus (Exodus 13:17-Exodus 15:21) deal with the "Exodus proper." So, there is much more for us in these 40 chapters. We're continuing our over-view study of the Scriptures by looking at each book week by week. Join us today as Michael teaches about Exodus.
