Episode 93: Pondering Peter (Part 1)

Oh, Peter. Many of us find it easy to identify with this imperfect apostle. He was impetuous, among other things, and often spoke first and thought later. Yet the Lord loved Peter and used him mightily for His kingdom. Let’s open our Bibles, ladies, and take some time to ponder Peter. 

Episode 91: Behold the Lamb!

With this week being the annual celebration of Christ’s death and resurrection, it seemed appropriate for us to focus this episode on one of the greatest statements in the New Testament:

The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29)

Listen in as we discuss the great truth that our Good Shepherd is also the Lamb of God.

Episode 90: The Good Shepherd

Jesus is the Good Shepherd. Is there any picture more comforting? In this episode of Equipping Eve, we’ll open our Bibles and see exactly what Jesus meant by this great “I Am” statement, and in the process, we’ll see exactly what a good shepherd looks like.

Episode 88: They Had Been With Jesus

In Acts 4:13, we are told of Peter and John that it was clear “they had been with Jesus.” Is this true of us? Is this true of those from whom we are learning? What did Jesus look like, and what implications does this have on our lives?

Episode 85: Joy to the World

It's Christmastime, which means we’re celebrating the first advent of Christ. But the fact that there’s a “first” advent implies a second, and that event—the second coming of Christ—is something all Christians should be eagerly anticipating!

Episode 82: Not Seen, But Loved

Remember “Doubting Thomas,” who insisted on seeing the resurrected Christ before believing that He was alive? When Jesus appeared to Thomas, He said to him, “Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.” We love Christ even though we haven’t seen Him, but we can still know what He looks like by studying His marvelous attributes as found in the Bible. Join Erin for an all-too-quick glimpse at who our Savior really is.

Episode 40: The Cross of Christ

It’s easy for Christians to become complacent in matters of “familiar” theology, but we must never tire of considering Christ and His work. So let’s talk about the cross. What is it, and why is it so important to Christians?

Episode 30: Simeon's Psalm

Mary and Joseph. The angels. The shepherds. The wise men. The innkeeper. And of course, the baby Jesus. These are the people we think of when we remember the Christmas story as told in the gospels. But there is another important character introduced in the early days of the life of Christ who often seems forgotten. Open your Bibles to Luke 2 and join Erin in a study of Simeon's psalm.

Jesus is God? Man? Jesus is the God-man. During the Christmas season especially, the doctrine of the incarnation is at the forefront of the minds of most Christians. We sing, "Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; Hail the incarnate Deity," but how can we better understand this central doctrine of Christianity? A study of the incarnation of Christ will deepen your praise, wonder, and worship of the mighty king Jesus.
