Episode 48: Through Gates of Splendor

On 8 January, 1956, five Christian missionaries were martyred by members of the Huaorani people as they sought to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the Ecuadorian rain forest. Elisabeth Elliot, wife of Jim, one of the martyred missionaries, tells the story in her book Through Gates of Splendor.

In this episode of Table Talk, Tyrell is joined by Josh Mack, pastor-teacher of Living Hope Church in Pretoria, to talk about the story of the martyred missionary and their legacy.

Episode 44: World Evangelisation

Table Talk with Tyrell
Episode 44: World Evangelisation
/

After his resurrection, and before he ascended to heaven, Jesus left his disciples, and the church, with one Great Commission: to make disciples of Jesus Christ in all nations (Matthew 28:18–20). By the power of the Spirit, the gospel has reached to all corners of the globe, yet much work remains to be done. The church must take seriously its responsibility to fulfil this commission.

In this episode of Table talk, Tyrell is joined by Desmond Henry, director of global evangelism networks of the Luis Palau Association to talk about world evangelisation.

Episode 4: Missions

Table Talk with Tyrell
Episode 4: Missions
/

Missions is the church’s sending out of missionaries (the sent ones) to pioneer the church among peoples who otherwise have no access of the gospel. By studying the apostles’ work in the New Testament, we learn that missionaries are focused on evangelising, planting churches, establishing elders in the churches, setting the churches in order, and remaining in contact with churches to offer guidance.
