Helping People Rediscover the Wonder of Scripture

For some time now, I’ve wanted to record a new series to help people sort through the truth of Scripture inside a relationship with the Loving Father that would be a companion to Transitions already on the website. I’m finally going to be able to do it this May in the Indianapolis area. Since we will be recording this for audio and DVD distribution, we need to do it at a TV studio. As uncomfortable as I am with doing something like this, I feel the resource is important for people who want to be engage the reality of God in the Bible.

Confusion abounds about the Bible and what it says about God. Is he a demanding deity, or a tender Abba? How do we reconcile the Old and New Testament depictions of God and come away from reading the Bible inspired to greater trust in the Father rather than condemned in our failures? Many have given up reading Scripture because they are either intimidated by its content or confused about how to interpret it. By looking at the whole of Scripture through the revelation of Jesus we can see that it was never intended to be a book of rules, but an unfolding story to show us who God is and how he thinks. In this series Wayne Jacobsen wants to help you read the Bible through the lens of Jesus that not only makes it easier to understand, but also resolves the seeming inconsistencies in its message and content. For 40 years Wayne has been a student of Scripture mining it for wisdom, encouragement, and insights that helped him follow God more accurately and hopes you will find the same treasure in its pages.

Recording sessions have been scheduled in Anderson, IN as follows:

• Thursday, May 12, 6:15 -9:30 pm

• Friday, May 13, 6:15 – 9:30 pm

• Saturday, May 14: 8:45 am – 1:00 pm

Since space is limited registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be no charge but we need a firm commitment so as not to rob someone else from coming. Because we are recording this will be a more formal environment, where we need people on-time and ready to go. If you would like to participate on one or all of these opportunities, you will need to sign up with Sara and receive location details from her.

    Blessing indeed on this time of recording.

    We need materials like this so that people can come to the scriptures with fresh eyes.

    Currently I am re-reading Baxter Kruger’s little book “Home” that focusses on the amazing relationship between the Father and Son by the Spirit in the Trinity and how through Jesus we are INCLUDED in this relationship – adopted into it! Material like this changes the way you read scripture.

    I often wonder what it would have been like to join the two people walking to Emmaus as Jesus “explained to them what was said in all the Scripture concerning himself.” Lk 24:27

    Actually as I have come to know Him better the Scriptures have been transformed for me.

    I pray that these recordings may indeed be used by the Spirit for many others to meet Jesus in a new way as they read the Scriptures too.

    Blessings again!!!!

    Yea, Wayne! I am so excited about this resource! Where I am in my journey is at the point of discounting the bible altogether, and yet, how can I?

    I say things like, “but Paul said this, and Jesus said this”- pitting the two against each other. I have thrown out my ideology of “inerrant scripture,” and it is leading me down paths I never thought I’d go. At the beginning of finding you & Brad I was desperate for a little more of how you interpreted the Bible, but you always say that you dislike very much for people to ask, “well what do Brad & Wayne think about it?” 😉

    Anyhow, I’m thrilled you’re being lead to do something like this for the common good. You and Brad have been a stalwart stepping stone on my journey. Many thanks.

    Interesting to hear of a couple of others from South Australia! The internet has made the world a more connected place in many ways.

    I live at One Tree Hill – just East of Elizabeth. If we go to Tea Tree Plaza we generally go through Greenwith!

    If either of you want to contact me you are welcome to at rwcon@chariot.net.au.

    Wayne, I am so excited to be a part of these sessions. Even though I have listened to many of your podcasts & teaching where you’ve touched on this topic I still have questions and hunger to go deeper.

    I can’t wait to listen to this. I asked God to help me understand who he is from the bible, i think this will be the answer. I loved Transitions and was a great help. Thank you.
