Current Show (April 29, 2016):

Discussed by W. Mark Lanier
with Lanier Law Firm www.LanierLawFirm.com

Most Theological Libraries are located just where you would expect – at Christian Seminaries! But one of the largest is located right in NW Houston. Mark Lanier has a FREE Theological Library on his private property that everyone can use, not just those studying at a seminary. Many ministers and pastors have found a great resource and its free to use.

The Mark Lanier Theological Library is home to 100,000 volumes and numerous artifacts, including a Dead Sea Scroll fragment, coins and weapons from the Biblical era, and the largest C.S. Lewis collection in the Southern United States with hand-written letters! Eighteen seminaries and grad schools use the Mark Lanier Theological Library as their principal research source. Many people use the Mark Lanier Theological Library every day – all for FREE!

Mark explains how he was able to acquire such a large volume of Theological books. It wasn’t easy, but it was definitely worth it! They have received volumes from Australia, Israel, Europe, England, Belgium, and Germany, as well as many other places across the US and the world. The Mark Lanier Theological Library is truly amazing and a great place to visit for FREE, even if you don’t need to do any research!

In addition to The Mark Lanier Theological Library, there is also a replica of a Byzantine church from 500 A.D. originally built in Tomarza, Cappadocia (Turkey) on the premises. The Stone Chapel was built using photos of the original church ruins taken in 1909, as well as an analysis of the site by a Harvard student published in 1971. They kept most of the same architecture as the original structure, obviously using a different type of glass for the windows and adding in the modern convenience of air conditioning. BONUS: Listen in as Mark explains why the Stone Chapel is facing east.

Finally, Mark Lanier invites you to join him at the Theological Library on Friday, May 6 from 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm to hear British New Testament Scholar Dr. Simon Gathercole and others in a panel discussion concerning New Testament topics: Was Jesus married, and the Doctrine of Atonement. Then, on Saturday evening, May 7, at 7:00 pm, Dr. Gathercole will present a lecture that is separate from the panel discussion. Both events are FREE to the public, but you must register in order to attend, as seating is limited.

Discussed by Dr. Simon Gathercole
with Lanier Theological Library

Part 1 of 2

Some Jesus skeptics doubt the existence of places like Nazareth and Capernaum. Do they / did they really exist? Does it matter?

Dr. Professor Simon Gathercole is a prominent British New Testament scholar. He is Reader in New Testament at the University of Cambridge and Fellow and Director of Studies in Theology at Fitzwilliam College. Dr. Gathercole will be at the Lanier Theological Library on Saturday night (7pm-9pm) May 7, 2016, for a lecture on "The Journeys of Jesus and Jewish Geography".

Today, he will be giving a pre-view of his lecture in two segments. First, Dr. Gathercole says, “I think it’s important for Christians to recognize that the kind of God we worship is not sort of a spirit up there who doesn’t really have much contact with us.” It’s not just a “feeling inside”. We know God is there through Scripture. Throughout the Bible, God acted and called specific people to go to specific places.

Skeptics often try to downplay the validity of the Bible by saying the writers (especially of the Gospels) just made up the names of the towns. Therefore, they claim that you cannot believe anything in the Bible! During his lecture on Saturday, May 7, Dr. Gathercole will be illustrating the various places, events, and writings which prove Jesus existed.

Listen in as Dr. Gathercole describes more about the proven existence of Jesus and the many cities mentioned in the Bible. Tune in to the next segment as he discusses “atonement.”

Discussed by Dr. Simon Gathercole
with Lanier Theological Library

Dr. Simon Gathercole has been to Israel many times and he is always mesmerized by the discoveries he makes.Having an understanding of Israel gives one insight to the Gospels,” he believes. In this second segment, he explains that many New Testament scholars are unaware of the evidence for Gospel sites. In his research, he has discovered “the commentators won’t refer to the knowledge that we have from elsewhere.” He goes on to say that some scholars even refer to the Gospels as fictional novels! Dr. Gathercole respectfully disagrees.

Dr. Gathercole also believes that atonement is an important aspect of a Christian’s walk with Christ. The English translation for atonement is “reconciliation”; the first five letters are “acts of one”, so the word literally means “two estranged parties becoming one again.” For believers, the “gulf has been bridged by the cross of Jesus and his resurrection”. Man – aren’t you going to sound smart around the water cooler at work with this one! Listen in as Dr. Gathercole expounds on this more deeply in this segment.

Dr. Gathercole’s FREE lecture will equip you with more knowledge about the places which Jesus and the disciples visited and will better explain how the Gospels are true and authentic. He says, “Our friendship with Jesus is not just something which is based on Jesus being in our heart now, but the reconciliation actually happened 2,000 years ago.

It’s not simply enough to know John 3:16 or a handful of other well-known verses. We must truly dig into His Word and soak in the wisdom with the pages. For instance, did you know that there is a real difference between a city, a town, a country side, and a village? This is actually very important and Dr. Gathercole discusses why in this segment.

Discussed by Brent Johnson
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Part 5

Church discipline is an issue that is seldom discussed in modern churches. It is even rarer that people are brought before an entire body in regards to unabashed and unrepentant sins. Brent Johnson gives the Biblical explanation of church discipline in the beginning of this final segment today.

How does church discipline connect to prayer, though? Prayer has been the focus of the lesson this week and is actually an important addition to church discipline. Brent offers several areas which more mature Christians can do a better, more thorough job of discipling those in the church who have strayed.

First, Brent uses James 1:5-8 as the perfect example of how to teach those who are needing assistance in their walk with God. These verses remind us that we should not beg God to help us in a situation if we are not willing to fully commit to the journey. Remember, God already has a plan for your life! You just need to realize what it is and go for it! It all boils down to trusting God in all situations.

Brent also urges us to really focus on our prayers, being more specific in requests and thankful for all He has given us. If you have anxiety about a certain situation, pray about it! Ask God to remove that anxiety from your life. Don’t just pray, asking God to forgive you for reacting in a sinful manner. Ask Him to take that sin away!

Scripture References: Philippians 4:6-7

Mark is leading his 800+ member class into a deeper understanding of God’s Word. Join him next Sunday at Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston.
