Episode 22: From the Earth Up—Synoptic Portrait of Christ

To the Christian, doctrine is unavoidable. Ours is never a choice between doctrine and no doctrine, but between sound doctrine and false doctrine. This is nowhere more urgent than when we are talking about the Christ, who is the object of our faith.

Episode 22: From the Earth Up—Synoptic Portrait of Christ


Today on Table Talk with Tyrell,@Tyrell Haag joined by professor Darrel Bock, Executive Director of Cultural Engagement at The Hendricks Center and Senior Research Professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. We are discussing "Jesus from the Earth Up". How do you explain Jesus to someone who starts with no biblical background, using the synoptics as a base? The Synoptics work differently than John’s gospel – the synoptics progressively reveal who Jesus is,and what he came to do,from the earth up.#657AM#729AM
