28 - “Knowing Is Half the Battle”
Aug 15 • 34 min
Whatta ya know? This week we take on a “Heavy Word” for “knowing,” and ask: How important is the difference between what we know and what we think we know? We get an answer when a “mic-drop” moment from a healed blind man leads to a childish moment from…
27 - “Fear Sandwich”
Aug 8 • 28 min
“It was a dark and stormy night…” As we begin part five of our “Here’s Your Sign” series, a moment of life-or-death peril at sea meets one of history’s most fantastic miracles. Starting with what Jesus Said about fear in Luke 12:4-7, we try to understand…
26 - “Eat It!”
Aug 1 • 32 min
Weird episode alert! This week we’re tackling Jesus’ challenging words about eating his body during that Passover meal in Luke 22:19-20. We see similar language after he miraculously feeds 5000 in our “Here’s Your Sign” segment. After sharing a few “Deep…
25 - “What Do You Want?”
Jul 25 • 34 min
What do you want? What Jesus Said to Mary in John 20:14-16 kicks off an episode all about what we’re seeking. We dive into the question he asked a paralytic in part two of our miracles series, “Here’s Your Sign.” And then we take on the “Heavy Words” for…
24 - “Incognito Miracles”
Jul 18 • 32 min
When your child’s illness takes a turn for the worst, how do you cope, and could anything pull you from their bedside? This week, we continue our series on Christ’s miracles, “Here’s Your Sign,” watching as one desperate father runs to Jesus and gets more…
23 - “I Have The Chicken!”
Jul 11 • 33 min
This week we kick off a new series called “Here’s Your Sign,” mining the miracles of Jesus for their insights into the Lord himself. We start with a wedding story about Jesus saving the day! Plus, what Jesus Said in John 12:20-28 has us doing Mad Libs as…
22 - “Hug It Out”
Jul 4 • 35 min
Broken relationships, misunderstandings, hurt feelings. So easy to say “forgive and forget,” but how do we get past a wrong? Throughout this episode we keep coming back to life’s complicated moral debts — like the pain we cause others — so much harder to…
21 - “That’s Bad Advertising”
Jun 27 • 41 min
The ladies have arrived! This week we discover that our wives are better at podcasting than we are, as they join us to discuss the trap of comparing ourselves to others. We begin with what Jesus Said about anxiety in Matthew 6:31-34 and end with a…
20 - “Almost Funny”
Jun 20 • 26 min
Getting to know you, getting to know all about you — this week we’re sharing some of our Favorite Things about the connection between the New and Old Testaments, marriage, parenting, morning rituals, and organization. We look out the window in our Jesus…
19 - “Go Get Her A Sandwich!”
Jun 13 • 30 min
We’re moving beyond the “life hacks” and “tips & tricks” on this episode, talking about productivity from a biblical perspective. We discuss what “Jesus Said” in Luke 13:6-9 about His investment in us, how God will determine when enough is enough, the…
18 - “More Than Enough WiFi”
Jun 6 • 26 min
On this episode, we explore the difference between “enough” and “more, more!” This takes us from what Jesus Said about covetousness in Luke 12:13-15 to what David said about a good night’s sleep in a Psalm 4 edition of Poetry in Motion. From our modern…
17 - “Stop, Collaborate, and Listen!”
May 30 • 37 min
Keeping it light this week, we’re just trying to answer all of life’s biggest questions! What’s my purpose? Why does the universe exist? What’s God’s big, eternal plan? Fortunately, Paul has given us a window into “the heavenly places” in the book of…
16 - “We’re No Strangers To Love”
May 23 • 43 min
This week we take on some of the obstacles that keep us from fulfilling our two most basic purposes: loving God and others. We discuss the temptation to “hole up” away from the world, the difficulty of saying “no” to the demands and distractions of our…
15 - “Cotton Candy and Cake Icing”
May 16 • 37 min
This week, what Jesus said in Luke 15:4-7 reminds us of the night we went searching the neighborhood for a dog. And what Paul says in Philippians 4 teaches us to avoid staring at “Medusa.” Join us we journey through the book of Philippians and consider…
14 - “A Dinghy and the Lion’s Den”
May 9 • 31 min
Continuing our Fruit series, we look at the commanding words of Jesus over the wind and waves from Mark 4:37-40, the “exile ethic” of men like Daniel, the strength of a well-built wall, and the dangers of drinking coffee in a room that’s on fire. We’re…
13 - “Mental Mentos”
May 2 • 39 min
As we continue our Fruit series, this week’s theme is “Patience.” Or, “How to Avoid Living Like a Can of Shaken Soda.” Or, as we discuss in our Jesus Said segment in Matthew 16:22-23, “Just Because Jesus Called You Satan, Doesn’t Mean He Has Given Up On…
12 - “Be Kind, Rewind”
Apr 25 • 32 min
On this episode, we ask “What’s the Deal” with John’s doubts and wonder what our bodies will be like in the resurrection. We try to figure out how to choose between two good things as we continue our Fruit of the Spirit series, and something Jesus Said in…
11 - “The Goggles of Faith”
Apr 18 • 38 min
This week, we’re rethinking “faith” and “faithfulness” as we continue through the Fruit of the Spirit series. What Jesus Said in Luke 12:42-48 raises the question, “Who am I when no one’s looking?” And some “Deep Thoughts” from the Minor Prophets take us…
10 - “Fighter Jets of Gentleness”
Apr 11 • 36 min
This week we discuss how warhorses are like fighter jets and how beagles are like Moses. We talk about “Selah,” superscriptions, and the source of salvation as we set the third psalm “in Motion.” And we continue our Fruit of the Spirit series with a…
9 - “The Pull of Double Chocolate Chip”
Apr 4 • 42 min
What is the value of weakness? What’s the problem with the term self-control? And why do we all occasionally find ourselves holding a tub of ice cream when we should probably have skipped dessert? This week we begin a series on the fruit of the Spirit and…
8 - “Break The Record”
Mar 28 • 37 min
This week we discuss some perplexing questions about prayer in a new segment we call “What’s The Deal With That?” Bryan asks what we mean when we say “prayer works” and Ryan asks why we pray if God already has a plan for the future. As always, we start…
7 - “A Goopy Kind of Love?”
Mar 21 • 39 min
This week we put the spotlight on marriage, from Jesus’ authoritative words on the union to practical wisdom we’ve learned (sometimes the hard way) through the years. We also contemplate some “deeeep thoughts” on what God is doing between a husband and…
6 - “Kiss The Son”
Mar 14 • 42 min
This week we set “Poetry in Motion” with the second psalm, and if you’ve ever watched the news with amazed discouragement, you can probably relate to its picture of a turbulent world beneath the sure throne of God. Plus, Bryan explains two words Jesus…
5 - “Contagious”
Mar 7 • 40 min
Movies that quote word-for-word from the gospels. Beautifully handcrafted leather-bound Bibles. Singing the Psalter, Bonhoeffer, and more. These are a few of our favorite things! Join us as we discuss what Jesus saw in the mass of humanity in Matthew…
4 - “Fully Infused”
Feb 28 • 39 min
When most people think of meditation, they think of someone cross-legged on a mountain saying, “Ommm.” The Bible draws us into a different kind of meditation altogether, so in a new segment called “Poetry in Motion,” we go to the first psalm to explore…
3 - “The First Century Person Inside My Brain”
Feb 21 • 36 min
Exorcisms, Exodus, and excess baggage … we cover the gamut this week, examining servant leadership from John 13:12-15, diving into some “Deep Thoughts” and challenging each other to shed some spiritual “weight.”
2 - “As Was His Custom”
Feb 14 • 40 min
This week we’re all about habits! How do you get a good habit to stick, why is a sin habit so hard to shake, and what kind of habits did Jesus have? We’ve had habits on the brain lately as we both have been reading James Clear’s new book, so we’re…
1 - “In Development”
Feb 7 • 22 min
Welcome to the inaugural episode of the Bible Geeks podcast. We’re starting from square one by introducing ourselves and laying out our vision for the show. We also discuss the childlike response that Jesus demands of us in order to receive the kingdom of…
