IBR Ep 21- Growing in Wisdom
Our #1 priority is to bear the image of God well. Often times we are faced with difficult decisions. The constant push and pull of waiting on God verses taking steps that God can bless can be a daunting and tiring existence. What happens if we then make a misstep and it seems that everything is falling in around us? How are we to think about these things? In this week’s episode, we again turn to the life of Abram and see how he, in his new calling to represent God to the nations, deals with disappointment and mistakes.

    Leviticus- Why It’s Important to All Believers
    Possibly the least read, yet most misunderstood book of Scripture, the book of Leviticus can be viewed as the foundational book for understanding how we are to approach our Holy God. We hope you enjoy this conversation about the importance of Leviticus and you are provoked to prayer and study.

    IBR Ep 20- God’s Reputation: The Believer’s Highest Priority
    This week we’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled series on Genesis. This episode is devoted to addressing our responsibility as believers in this tumultuous time. If we are called the children of God, then we no longer represent ourselves. We now bear His Name, even in times of crisis, upheaval, confusion, and tragedy. What does that mean and what does that look like? As His children, representing our Creator is our greatest responsibility.

    God’s Reputation: The Believer’s Highest Priority
    One of the most common things we've heard recently is that we are in "unprecedented" times. But are we really? As we look through our Bibles, the pages are filled with plagues, wars, and crises. The times of upheaval recorded in our Scriptures far outweigh the recordings of peace. Is this on purposed? What are we supposed to be learning about hard times as we read our Bibles? The Biblical agenda is to teach us how to keep the main thing the main thing.

    IBR Ep 19- Abram’s Journey Begins
    When we met Abram, we met a man who was more concerned about the name of others than his own. This week, we see some striking similarities between Abram and Adam. How does God speak to Abram? How does Abram follow? What does this tell us about what it means to bear God's image?

    IBR Ep 18- Why Abram?
    Of course we all know the grand stories of father Abraham, but have you ever asked yourself, "Why Abram?" As we read the Biblical narrative, we know that we are expecting a seed that will undo what was done in Gan Eden and restore us to the Ets Chaim. Out of the chaos of the Tower of Babel, a man named Abram is called to partner with God, to represent Him to the world, to bring His blessing on humanity, to be a new Adam. But why Abram? Tucked away in a small segment of a genealogy we have a fascinating clue.

    IBR Ep 17- The Tower of Babel
    Moving on from Noah and the Flood, we find ourselves at an obscure story...the Tower of Babel. There is much speculation surrounding languages, ethnicities, and races that all stem from wrestling with the Tower of Babel story. Is there something else here? Why is this story here? What can we see from our re-reading of Genesis that breathes new life into this narrative?

    IBR Ep 16- Noah, The Promised Seed?
    In this week’s episode, we continue our walk through the flood narrative and the story of Noah. Noah’s story is full of Eden imagery, including chaotic water, trees, mountain tops, and priestly functions. The Flood narrative is not a story of cosmic destruction by the hands of a blood thirsty God. Rather, it is the beautiful recreation & reordering of God’s sacred space, where He chooses to dwell with His creation. Is Noah the promised seed of Adam & Chavah that will crush the serpent’s head? Is Noah the one who will bring the full blessing of the Kingdom of God to the earth and restore Eden? Let’s find out together!

    As we have walked from the Garden, we have been looking for the seed promised to Chavah. As we look at the life a Avram, we learn about what it means to be a partner with God in the restoration process. That relationship is one built on trust. And for there to be trust, we have to be tested. Today we will continue looking at Avram's tests including his final, largest test, the Akeida.

    In this episode, we are going to look at the story of Noah. Since Adam & Chavah’s exile from the garden, Chavah was promised a seed that would crush the serpent’s head, bringing restoration of mankind back to the Garden. As we look at Noah’s story in a different light, we begin to see the patterns and themes of Genesis emerging once again. What message should we be getting from the story of Noah? This episode is a beginning of the discussion of the restoration through Noah.

    This week, Kyle and Joe wrap up their three week discussion on the theme of exile and hope in the Biblical narrative. We are devoting this episode to exile language in the Gospels. Over the last couple of weeks, we have developed an “exile vocabulary” that will enable to read the words of Yeshua Messiah on a whole new level. Yeshua’s words and interactions throughout the Gospels are not haphazard, but are very specific and full of purpose as He harkens back to the words of the Nevi’im (Prophets) and begins the restoration back from exile.

    If you have followed our discussion on Genesis the last several weeks, you are aware that we have been asking different questions of Genesis in search of better answers. the question you may be asking is...so what? Why do these questions matter? Why does looking at the Scripture in ancient near eastern context matter. This next series of talks deals with exactly that question.

    IBR Ep 11- Exile and Death
    When thinking through the main ideas and themes of Scripture, most don’t consider the theme of exile as a major Biblical idea. However, beginning in Genesis, woven through the whole of the Hebrew Bible, and throughout the New Testament, the theme of exile can be seen as the lens through which the Scriptures were written and interpreted. What is exile and death in a Biblical sense? Is the Bible and its Hebrew writers concerned with physical death or something different? What does exile have to do with death? We will tackle these fascinating topics in today’s episode.

    As we continue our journey through the beginning chapters of Genesis, we come to the climax of the Garden narrative. Adam and Eve are banished from the Tree of Life and sent away as a result of their disobedience and disloyalty to HaShem’s instructions. Today, we’re going to begin looking at the over-arching theme of exile that begins here in the opening chapters of the Scriptures.

    Today, we are going to look at the theme in Scripture of death and exile. This is not something most Christians think about as a major part of the Biblical story, yet it is a concept that completely shapes the entire story, beginning in and looking back to Genesis. Ultimately, this concept takes us all the way through the book of Revelation.

    IBR Ep 9- Two Trees and Forbidden Fruit
    Shalom everyone. In this episode, we continue our walk through the first few chapters of Genesis by picking up where we left off in last week's discussion. Genesis 2 & 3 provide some interesting reading in the form of a talking snake, trees, and some sort of forbidden fruit. Are we expected to read this as a Snow White type of story, where Adam and Eve eat of a magical apple thereby transforming their once immortal and perfect make up into a sin-sick creature? What type of "fruit" was eaten or does it even matter? Is there a bigger story being communicated here? All this and more in today's episode.

    Haunkkah Part 2- We’re the Temple?
    In 1 Corinthians, Paul tells us that we are the Temple. How does the Maccabean revolt and the celebration of Hanukkah shed light on what it means to be the Temple. After all, the story of Hanukkah is a story of the Temple. We indeed are the Temple. That being said, it is necessary that we understand our responsibility representing God in this world. That starts with being an appropriate corporate body wherein His presence can be at home.

    IBR Ep 8- A Talking Snake?
    As we move through the first few chapters of Genesis, we find ourselves suddenly confronted with "the serpent" in chapter 3. The serpent has no introduction or back story, it simply shows up. Although there are many opinions as to who or what the serpent was, we may find it profitable to ask what the initial and ancient hearers may have understood it to be. Join the conversation as we discuss the serpent...a talking snake or something else?
