The CWR Bible Survey -- exploring the book of 2 Samuel
This week we continue our journey through the book of 2 Samuel. David establishes his capital at Jerusalem, bringing new focus to a nation that had lacked cohesion since the time of Joshua. He improves Israel's political and economic status among the surrounding countries. He brings renewal and revival to Israel's worship. Yet through all these accomplishments, we see David as flawed. Join us for this fascinating study!
This week at Christianity Without the Religion - audio-- "Save Us Now!"
Jesus entered Jerusalem for the last time in his earthly ministry to the acclamation of crowds calling "Save us now!" A few days later a crowd in Jerusalem screamed out "Crucify him!"
Next week at Christianity Without the Religion - audio -- "Easter Is Disturbing!"
Easter is a mystery because it transcends our predictable world. The resurrection of Jesus can be disturbing because it insists on a God who is, in Christ, upending and rupturing the natural order of things.
Michael North, our worship leader at CWRa, has recorded his version of the classic Christian hymn "How Great Thou Art." We will begin to air Michael's new arrangement of this all time favorite during our Easter service on April 20 – join us, and tell a friend, about our worldwide online teaching ministry, CWRa (Christianity Without the Religion audio).
New CWR Blog
Among his many other contributions to CWR/PTM, Senior Editor Brad Jersak recently launched a new blog (Christianity Without the Religion Blog—christianitywithoutthereligion.org) available on its own website as well as being linked to and available on www.ptm.og. If you enjoy surfing the web, you can grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ through this new CWR/PTM feature.
PTM/CWR Front Page -- "I Am Making Everything New"
One of the great lines in the Bible that describes the resurrection is of that great stone -- that boulder -- that had been placed in front of the tomb of Jesus so that no one would be able to steal his body, and then claim that he had been resurrected. When the women came to the tomb on Resurrection Sunday, they found that the stone had been rolled back. Such a thing was impossible for man, but with God all things are possible.
