I haven’t done Church Sundays posts in a while but I thought it would be good to ask:

Good Friday and Easter (Resurrection Sunday) is around the corner. I think this would be appropriate.
Here is a four part audio series titled “The Scriptural Road of Emmaus” which covers Messianic Types and Prophecies found in the Old Testament:
The title of the series is playing on the account of the two disciples walking with Jesus on the road to Emmaus recorded in Luke 24 in which Jesus gives a study on the Old Testament predicting the Messiah.
Note: The last one is bi-lingual, it is preached in English but has another language that it’s being interpreted into.
As I have said previously in this blog, I believe Presuppositional apologetics’ stress on being biblical in approaching apologetics is a good thing; and like other Presuppostionalists I would agree that the Christian apologist must be Biblical in one’s worldview, epistemology and philosophy of evidence, etc. But I would also say that it’s important for the Presuppositionalists to know their Bibles well enough in particular with their Old Testament: so that they can marshal Messianic Prophecies! Afterall, Old Testament Messianic prophecies are the evidences that God has given directly in His Word pointing to and predicting the Messiah’s life and ministry that Jesus Christ has fulfilled. It would be ironic for the apologist who stress so much about being Biblical to end up being weak in the Evidences that God’s direct special revelation has given. That of course is not to downplay the importance of being conscious of the philosophy of evidence and presuppositions when dialoguing since these are not neutral (Presuppositionalists’ point) nor does that mean we should not master the actual details of the facts of Jesus’ life and ministry (often, the traditional Evidentialist’s big focus). But if we believe it’s the hearing of God’s Word that produces faith then we best master it to expose His Word to those whom we are evangelizing and giving a defense towards.
Plus there is something about incorporating and studying Messianic prophecies that makes one’s apologetics doxological since it’s centered on Christ!
More than a commercialized and materialistic Valentines, I thought it’s good for the Christian to focus back on a God-centered understanding of marital love.
I have listening to Joe Morecraft’s sermons on Christian Marriage and I am currently on the fifth sermon.
Thought I shared them with you, for something to listen to after Valentines Day if you are married, or soon to be married =)
A very good sermon, I’ve enjoyed it and though many people come on Veritas Domain largely through apologetics search and come back for the apologetics materials, I think it is important not to forget the pastoral side in addressing unbelief.

Don Green, a pastor at Grace Community Church, has preached many times through the book of Habakkuk.
In light of the events during the time of this post (Japan’s Tsunami), and this blog’s niche of Bible, worldviews and apologetics, I think it is appropriate that the Word of God is also faithfully taught concerning the theme of suffering and trusting in God in tough times.
Here’s a four part series he’s done several years back:
