Serious Bible study applied to real life. Unlike most sermons, WitW focuses on uncovering the author's original intended meaning and how we know when we've found it.
||Clean03 1 John 2:1-11: Abide in Christ||How should we handle theological disagreements among believers? What issues are so critically important that we should draw a line? And, on what issues should we agree to disagree? John gives us a place to draw the line. Lecture notes: https://www.wedne||2/20/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean02 1 John 1:5-10: God is Light||John begins his summary of the true gospel by saying God is the source of and all life, salvation and holiness.

||Clean01 1 John 1:1-4: The Word of Life||In his preface, John argues the apostles are the only reliable source of information about the way to gain eternal life because they were intimate eye-witnesses to the life, ministry and teaching of Jesus.

||Clean14 2 Peter 3:10-18 The Second coming and what it means for today||Peter concludes the letter by discussing the end of the age, the return of Christ and what that tells us about how we should live now.

||Clean13 2 Peter 3:8-9 Free will and God’s sovereignty||2 Peter 3:8-9 features in the debate over God’s sovereignty and human free will. While this verse does not settle the debate, understanding what Peter means in context teaches us a lot about both good Bible study and the issues in the debate.

||Clean12 2 Peter 3:1-7 The Point of it all||Peter argues that more than anything else we need to find life through forgiveness and to find fulfillment through righteousness. It is this hope that he wants us to remember such that we let it change our lives today. Lecture notes: https://www.wednesd||1/16/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean11 2 Peter 2:17-22 Freedom, slavery and sin||Peter warns that the false teachers are like springs without water, promising freedom but delivering destruction and he warns his readers not be deceived by their empty promises.

||Clean10 2 Peter 2:13-16 Balaam and the false teachers||Continuing his warnings about the false teachers, Peter uses of Balaam from Numbers 22-24. Like Balaam, the false teachers are profiting from causing the people of God to stumble. Lecture notes: https://www.wednesdayintheword.com/2peter10/ Teacher: Kris||12/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean09 2 Peter 2:10-12 Who are the glorious ones and why are they reviled?||In the third major interpretative challenge of 2 Peter 2, we tackle the questions of who are the glorious ones, why would they be reviled and what does Peter want us to learn from this example? #witw #Biblestudy #2peter Lecture notes: https://www.wednes||12/12/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean08 2 Peter 2:5-10 The Certainty of Judgment||The coming judgment of God is not a popular topic today. We prefer to emphasize God's love instead. Yet Peter thought judgment was important enough to include in his final letter, so that would remember it long after he is gone. #witw #Biblestudy #2pete||12/5/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean07 2 Peter 2:4 Does Peter quote Enoch?||Peter and Jude appear to be quoting the book of 1 Enoch, which is part of the psuedepigrapha. Why would they quote it? What does it mean when an apostle quotes from a non-biblical source? I think both Peter and Jude quote 1 Enoch, the way a teacher toda||11/28/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean3 Tips for Bible Study in a "post-truth" world||The Oxford Dictionary defines "post-truth" as "relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief."

||Clean06 2 Peter 2:1-3 Why 2 Peter 2 and Jude are similar||2 Peter 2 begins a new topic: the coming judgment. While the main point of the chapter is fairly clear, the way Peter makes his point presents some interpretative challenges: 1) 2 Peter 2 focuses on judgment -- an unpopular topic for today's American ch||11/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean05 2 Peter 1:12-21 The Prophetic Word||In 2 Peter 1:12-21, Peter asserts the gospel is not a clever philosophy but divine revelation from God.

||Clean04 2 Peter 1:7-11 Brotherly affection & love||In 2 Peter 1:5-11, Peter explains the connection between believing the gospel and pursuing a lifestyle of godliness.

Sound, Gospel-centered teaching
Wednesday in the Word is an excellent source of solid Biblical teaching. I appreciate how each lesson is clear, challenging, and opens my eyes every time to grow in a better understanding of what Jesus Christ has done for me.
How to do Bible Study
Krisan not only illuminates her Bible studies, but she helps listeners learn how to do this for themselves. I'm going to commit to learning how to learn more from the Bible this year!
