After the resurrection Thomas missed an important meeting, the one where Jesus showed himself to the disciples. Thomas could not believe this story that the other disciples were telling him. Jesus alive? Ridiculous. Thank God for Thomas and his honest doubt.
Here is the movie my son did on this story of Thomas:
In honor of Good Friday the Bible Study Podcast looks at Jesus crucifixion and death from Luke’s account. If you were being tortured to death and every breath was taken and agony and the agony was made worse when you tried to get the breath to talk, what would you talk about? Jesus talks about forgiveness.
The Midianites have invaded Israel because the people turned their back on God and started worshiping other Gods. Gideon is finally convinced that God wants him to rescue his people from the Midianites and raises an army. Just when things are going well God gives Gideon some unexpected feedback. “You have too many men”.
The Midianites have invaded Israel because the people turned their back on God and started worshiping other Gods. God calls Gideon to rescue his people from the invading Midianites. Gideon is not so sure that this sounds like a good idea. Sometimes when we ask “God, why haven’t you done something?”, God replies “Am I not sending you?”.
When last we left our hero Joseph he was unjustly accused and spending time in prison, but the Lord was with him. In this episode we see that God has given Joseph the ability to interpret dreams and how God has uses that ability, as part of a plan that is many years in the making, to save the lives of his family.
Joseph is the favorite son of Israel/Jacob the grandson of Abraham. Everyone knows that Joseph is his father’s favorite son which does not make him popular with his siblings who eventually sell him into slavery. If God is with Joseph, and the bible says he is, why does he end up in prison accused of a crime he did not commit?
Two interesting stories from Abraham’s life. In the first one Abraham barters with God to try and save Sodom and Gomorrah if only he can find some righteous people in the city. In the second one Abraham is tested by God to see if God is more important to him even than his son Isaac.
