The Book of Revelation – Part 5

Chapter 5: A Scroll & Seals

revelation-part-5In Episode 45 we continue our new series on the Book of Revelation.

Your hosts, Rob and Bob, continue to discuss the Book of Revelation chapter 5.

The second vision of the Book of Revelation brings us into the throne room of God where all the realms of creation both in heaven and on earth do nothing but give glory to God day and night. John sees a continual and repetitious act of all of creation demonstrating its reverence for their Creator. They cry out glory, glory, glory to Him who was and is and is to come. And as the elders fall off of their thrones prostrate before the throne they cast their crown before the throne demonstrating that though the church reigns with Christ we are humble before the slain Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. As we work our way through the vision questions remain.  What does the scroll and the seals mean?  Why does John weep and what role is Christ taking upon Himself?

We will discuss these and other questions today on Theology Simply Profound.

The Olivet Discourse

The Temple and Tomorrow

TSP Episode 038Episode 38 deals with Jesus’ teachings to his disciples in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 commonly called the Olivet Discourse.

Your hosts, Rob and Bob, following up on their series considering Dispensationalism and jump right into a familiar, but often times misunderstood portion of God’s word.

Why is this passage so important to Dispensationalists? Why is their approach to it inadequate? What is Jesus talking about? Why is the Temple so central to Jesus teaching here? And why would the disciples be concerned about the Temple? Why would the destruction of the Temple be so devastating to the disciples?  When would these things take place and how does this affect Christians today? How do Reformed folk understand this passage as a whole?

We will discuss these and other questions today on Theology Simply Profound.

the millenniumIn episode 36, your hosts Rob and Bob continue to discuss Dispensational Theology. In this episode, the Dispensation of the Kingdom. This is part 2 of our discussion of the Millennium.

In Dispensationalism, what is the purpose of the Millennium? If Christ is not currently seated as a King, how does God rule today or does he? Why does the Temple have to be rebuilt? And what will actually happen in the Temple? According to Dispensationalists, will there be animal sacrifices? And, what does the prophet Ezekiel have to do with all of this?

We’ll discuss these and other related questions in this episode of Theology Simply Profound.

Dispensationalism – Part 10

The Tribulation

In episode 34Dispensationalism.10, your hosts Rob and Bob, continue their discussion about Dispensational Theology. In this episode we discuss the topic of the Tribulation.

What is the Tribulation? Why the Tribulation? What’s its purpose? What is going to happen during the Tribulation? Is it Biblical? Why is the Book of Daniel highlighted so much in this conversation? Is it really meant to interpret the Book of Revelation? That sounds backwards to Reformed ears.

In yet another longer than typical episode (sorry but there’s a lot to talk about), we’ll discuss these and other related questions in this episode of Theology Simply Profound.

The Rapture

Dispensationalism.09In episode 33, your hosts Rob and Bob, continue their discussion about Dispensationalism. On this episode we discuss the very important topic of the Rapture.

What is the Rapture? Why is the Rapture so very important to contemporary Dispensationalists? Is the Rapture found in the Bible? If so, why don’t Reformed and Covenantal Christians believe in the Rapture like Dispensationalists? Or do we?

In this longer than typical episode (sorry about that), we’ll discuss these and other related questions in this episode of Theology Simply Profound.

What is Replacement Theology? Why is the Dispensation of Grace also known as the Church Age? How does the church relate to Israel of old? Why do Dispensationalists fear Covenantal & Reformed Theology? Why do Dispensationalists think that Covenant & Reformed folk are anti-semitic?

We’ll discuss these and other related questions in this episode of Theology Simply Profound.
