Episode 555 Show Notes
From the Show
The scriptures are clear that life begins at conception. Even in the womb God is at work in us. Think of the story of John the baptist in Elizabeth’s womb. Mary goes to meet Elizabeth early in the Gospels, and we read that John leapt in Elizabeth’s womb. It is as if John, in the womb, is able to recognize the presence of Jesus Christ.
Questions in this Episode
1. What book of the Bible should I introduce to the youth group that I am a leader in?
2. I know as a Christian we should read the bible ourselves but what do you do when you’re scared that you will interpret it wrong? What do you do when you have trouble navigating your bible for answers as well?
3. Did Jesus mean for us to repeat the words of the Lord’s Prayer, or is the Lord’s Prayer merely a guideline for the things we ought to pray about?
4. I have encountered people who accuse Christians of not knowing their Bible when they are pro-life “because Exodus 21:22 only calls for a fine if a baby is aborted” — obviously they are mistaken in interpreting “miscarriage” as being anywhere equivalent with abortion. But my question is: in the Hebrew, is there grounds for some of these Bible translators to use the word “miscarriage” instead of something like “premature birth” — as translations like the NASB do?
