For most of 2020, churches in South Africa, and across the world, have had to adjust to a new normal. But church lockdown must eventually give way to church post-lockdown. What will that look like?

Episode 46: Church Leadership

Jesus Christ loved the church and gave himself for it. To love Christ means to love his church. A part of loving the church is understanding the way in which God has designed the church to work. A part of the way the church works is through God-appointed leaders.

In this episode of Table Talk, Tyrell is joined again by Mark Penrith, pastor-teacher of Crystal Park Baptist Church in Benoni, South Africa, as they talk through what the Bible teaches about church leadership.

Episode 39: Public Bible Reading

Table Talk with Tyrell
Episode 39: Public Bible Reading
/

In this episode, Tyrell sits down again with Mark Penrith, pastor-teacher of Crystal Park Baptist Church in Benoni, South Africa. Mark and Tyrell discuss the significance of Bible reading—and particularly public Bible reading in corporate worship.

Paul commanded the public reading of Scripture for corporate worship (1 Timothy 4:13). This practice dates all the way back to Mount Sinai, where Moses gathered the people together and read the Scriptures aloud to them. Joshua did so again when Israel entered the Promised Land and Ezra did so when the Israelites returned from exile in Babylon. Jesus participated in this practice (Luke 4:16–19). It is understandable that Paul would commend this practice.

For most of new covenant history, people did not have easy access to their own Bible, if indeed they could read. The invention of the printing press in the 1500s changed all of that, but for most of church history, people relied on the public reading of Scripture in corporate worship settings for their access to God’s word. This is a practice which has, sadly, been lost in many contemporary churches, but it is one to which we need to return.

Episode 38: The Epistle of James

Episode 38: The Epistle of James
/

In this episode, Tyrell sits down once again with Mark Penrith, pastor-teacher of Crystal Park Baptist Church in Benoni, South Africa. Mark and Tyrell discuss the New Testament epistle of James and its relevance to 21st-century South African Christians.

James is an intensely practical letter. The author leaves us in no doubt as to the kind of obedience that is expected from his readers, and there are few who could read the book without heartfelt conviction.

Herbert F. Stevenson writes of James, “His theme is conduct rather than creed.” Gordon J. Keddie notes, “There is an ethical crispness to James that places the issues relentlessly in the foreground of the mind; James gives a definitive prescription for truly practical Christianity.” Again, Keddie adds that James “is a manual for practical godliness.” John MacArthur observes that “James has been compared to … Proverbs because of its direct, pungent statements on wise living.” Warren Wiersbe gives an interesting statistic: “There are over 50 imperatives in this epistle; James did not suggest, he commanded.” And Derek Tidball summarised it wonderfully: “Here is theology in working man’s clothes.”

Episode 37: Lectures to My Students
/

In this episode, Tyrell sits down with Mark Penrith, pastor-teacher of Crystal Park Baptist Church in Benoni, South Africa. Mark and Tyrell discuss Charles Spurgeon’s famed Lectures to My Students, which is a written selection, originally published in 1869, from his addresses delivered to college students at the Pastors’ College Metropolitan Tabernacle in London.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was born in Kelvedon, Essex, England on 19 June 1834. His father and grandfather were both pastors and, at the age of twenty, he became the pastor of the New Park Street Church in London. The congregation quickly outgrew the building and moved to Exeter Hall. In 1861, the congregation moved to the newly constructed Metropolitan Tabernacle. During his lifetime, he published over 3,500 sermons that filled 63 volumes. His series stands as the largest set of books by a single author in the history of Christianity. During his last years, he suffered severe physical pain from a gout attack. He was growing increasing ill and died on 31 January 1892.

Episode 28: Discipleship

Episode 28: Discipleship
/

Most Christians believe that men are indeed the method of Jesus, but precious few are willing to invest their lives by putting all their eggs in one basket. Believing this people-orientated philosophy and practicing it are entirely different matters. A large problem in Christendom is that we dont want to take the risk or the time to invest in the lives of people, even though this was a fundamental part of Jesus ministry. We fear, that the basket is really a trap to ensnare us.
