Jeremiah (Program #5) – The Intrinsic Content of Jeremiah

In Hebrews, the New Testament book, the apostle Paul who is the likely writer of Hebrews quotes the prophet Jeremiah. Listen to Hebrews 8:10-11 “For this is the covenant which I will covenant with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will impart My laws into their mind, and on their hearts I will inscribe them; and I will be God to them, and they will be a people to Me.” This marvelous prophecy from the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah revealing the coming new covenant impressed the apostle enough to include it in the New Testament. But this is certainly not the pointer in this Old Testament book to what God in His divine economy has in store for His elect.

Acts (Program #43) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (9)

The Apostle Paul began the second of his great missionary journeys on a contentious note.  A serious dispute aroused between he and Barnabas, his close co-worker and the one who initiated him into the ministry.   The lessons that are seen in this account in Acts chapter 15 hold much help and insight even for us today, if our heart and spirit are open to see and hear God’s speaking from His faithful and holy Word.
