My dear listeners, there is a dual purpose in the creation of this podcast. The first purpose is to set forth the nature of the book, THE JESUS YOU NEED TO KNOW. Through interviews with the author, yours truly, we intend to manifest the purpose and the person of this writing.
It is odd but sometimes true that in teaching Christianity, it is possible to miss the person upon which it is being built. Christianity, as a religion, is nothing apart from Jesus Christ. The stated purpose of the Bible, as stated in the first letter of John, is that those who believe in Christ might know they have eternal life (1 John 5:13). Jesus said, "This is eternal life, that they might know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent" (John 17:3).
Furthermore, the calling of Jesus's disciples is to disciple others. The best way to disciple is to point them in the direction of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is done best through first-hand knowledge of the Bible, and being taught by those who know Him well. THE JESUS YOU NEED TO KNOW was written to point people to Jesus. Naturally, I want people to read about Jesus and that others may use the tool I created to do the same.
The reason for the podcast, THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW, is to teach others about the Biblical nature of the Church and in particular, discipleship. Two types of podcasts can be heard during our start-up, one is interviews about my book, and the others are about the nature of the Church and discipleship.
May you be blessed in the listening, and please feel free to contact me at any time.
