Discipleship & Discipline

WHI Classic • While many churches in our day emphasize convenience and comfortability, one of the key ingredients to a life of lasting discipleship is actually discipline. In other words, like marriage or excelling in a particular career path, being a Christian is not always fun, but often involves hard work, faithfulness and perseverance. We also need faithful shepherds to come along side us, to feed and care for us as we make our way through Vanity Fair on our way to the Celestial City (originally aired 02-19-17). __________ Support the classics and for a donation of any amount receive a link to download our classic series “Understanding Scripture” – whitehorseinn.org/whiclassics. __________ To receive our free INNtro kit which includes the current issue of Modern Reformation magazine and our most recent set of extended-length White Horse Inn CDs, go to whitehorseinn.org/kit.

Coming to Grips with the God of the Old Testament 2

Martin Luther once noted that in numerous passages throughout the Old Testament, it’s appropriate to “interpret the name Yahweh to refer to our Lord Jesus Christ.” So how can this insight change the way we read and interpret a book like Genesis? On this episode, Shane Rosenthal continues his conversation with Dr. Thomas Egger, president of Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, and together they discuss how so many of the themes introduced in the Bible’s first book are ultimately resolved in the person and work of Jesus Christ.

From Doxology to Discipleship

WHI Classic: How does a life of discipleship flow out of doxology and worship? First, we need to remind ourselves once again that worship is the natural response to encountering the God of Scripture. Once we have been captivated by his mercy and kindness to us in Christ, we not only offer him praise and adoration, but we also give him our very selves, for we are now no longer our own, but have been bought with a price (1Cor 6:19-20). On this program the hosts discuss what it means to become true and lasting disciples of Jesus Christ (originally aired 02-12-17). __________ Get our collection, The Spirit of the Age: Challenging the Alternative Gospels of Our Time.

Coming to Grips with the God of the Old Testament 1

What are we to make of the God who is presented in Genesis and other Old Testament texts? According to popular atheists such as Richard Dawkins, this God is a judgmental, homophobic, racist, misogynistic, ethnic cleanser. So, is this an accurate representation of the God of Israel, or a completely distorted caricature? Shane Rosenthal discusses these and other important issues with Dr. Thomas J. Egger, professor of Exegetical Theology and President of Concordia Seminary in St. Louis. __________ Sign up for our newsletter and receive our free digital download collection on Justification – whitehorseinn.org/newsletter. __________ Get our collection, The Spirit of the Age: Challenging the Alternative Gospels of Our Time.

A Life of Doxology & Praise

WHI Classic • As contemporary Christians have become increasingly detached from both the drama of Scripture and its doctrinal significance, our praise has shifted from a focus on God and his glory to our individual worship experiences. We are not only called to gather once a week to sing God’s praises and to receive his good gifts, but throughout the rest of the week (and the rest of our lives as well), we are called to be loving, generous and hospitable to others, not in order to be saved, but in grateful response to all that God has done for us in Christ. The hosts will discuss these and other issues related to worship and doxology (originally aired 02-05-17). __________ Support the classics and for a donation of any amount receive a link to download our classic series “Understanding Scripture” – whitehorseinn.org/whiclassics. __________ If you would like to lead a bible study or want a reliable resource to help you study the Bible on your own, consider using Core Bible Studies.

The Search for the Historical Joseph

On last week’s episode, John Lennox argued that the story of Joseph is one of the most moving accounts in all the world’s literature. But is this famous narrative just a beautiful rags to riches tale, or is there any evidence that Joseph was a real historical figure who became prime minister of Egypt during the time of a great famine? Shane Rosenthal discusses this question with Egyptologist David Rohl, author of numerous books including, Exodus: Myth or History? __________ If you would like to listen to the interview we recorded with Dr. Rohl last year, for a limited time we’re making that episode available on our website.

From Doctrine to Doxology

WHI Classic • How should we respond to the announcement of God’s redemptive mission to seek and save the lost, or to the doctrinal implications of Christ’s atoning death and his resurrection from the dead? On this program, the hosts will move from the drama and the doctrine to a discussion of doxology, or worship. What is the appropriate response to the good news of the gospel, and what patterns of living should flow out of an understanding of God’s grace in Christ? As with doctrine, we cannot escape worship. The question is to whom or to what we will be devoted (originally aired 01-29-17). __________ Get our collection, The Spirit of the Age: Challenging the Alternative Gospels of Our Time.

John Lennox on the Story of Joseph

According to Oxford mathematician John Lennox, the account of Joseph’s rise to power in the latter part of Genesis, which leads to the climactic moment in which he reveals himself to his brothers and publicly forgives them, “is one of the most moving scenes in all the world’s literature.” On this episode, Shane Rosenthal talks with professor Lennox about the implications of this amazing story, as well as other important scenes from the book of Genesis which he has written about in his book, Joseph: A Story of Love, Hate, Slavery, Power and Forgiveness. __________ Get our collection, The Spirit of the Age: Challenging the Alternative Gospels of Our Time.

How Our Beliefs Shape Us

WHI Classic • According to the doctrines of nihilism, nothing at all is sacred. In fact, nothing really matters except that which gives momentary pleasure or excitement. Christianity, on the other hand, starts with a completely different premise. This world is God’s world, and everything we do matters. So what are the implications of these two views? Do ideas like these just float around in a person’s head, or do these beliefs shape us in ways we can’t even comprehend (originally aired 1-22-17)? __________ Become a partner and you will receive all of the White Horse Inn extended episodes, access to our extensive archive as well as a subscription to our magazine, Modern Reformation.

The Gospel of God’s Weakness

As mentioned on last week’s program, most commentators tend to argue that Genesis 32 is about Jacob’s refusing to let go of God until he received his desired blessing, which of course is something that all believers should strive to do as well. Or is it? On this episode, the hosts continue to explore the idea that Jacob was literally “in the dark” about his assailant’s identity and may even have thought he was fighting his own brother, Esau. If so, this would indicate that he was still trying to secure the blessing of firstborn status by his own efforts. So what’s the ultimate point of this passage, and how does it relate to the Gospel in Genesis? Tune in to find out as Shane Rosenthal continues his conversation with Matt Foreman and Doug Van Dorn. __________ Become a partner and you will receive all of the White Horse Inn extended episodes, access to our extensive archive as well as a subscription to our magazine, Modern Reformation.
