This weekend, we turn to Jesus Himself as the Christ, the One promised from the beginning. Every page of the Bible, every story it contains points to Jesus as the One who will defeat sin and the grave. If we are going to rightly understand Scripture, we must interpret it through the lens of the cross. The title of this week’s message is “ANOINTED.”
This weekend’s message is critical to our understanding of discipleship. Having examined each of the facets of discipleship through our acronym WATER and the obstacles connected to each one, we turn out attention to how to practically implement these strategies into our lives. In Paul’s second letter to Timothy, he encourages the young pastor to put into practice the things he has learned and help others to grow spiritually. The title of our message this weekend is “DISCIPLESHIP: PATHWAYS.”
This weekend, we come to the third letter of the acronym WATER, which stands for “Together.” In the book of Acts, the believers were united by a common purpose and desire to see the gospel spread to the nations. Their unity made them stand out from those around them and drew people to the truth of who Jesus is and what He accomplished. The title of this week’s message is “DISCIPLESHIP 3: TOGETHER.”
Many times in Scripture, the church is compared to a body. It is composed of many members with different functions that work together for the good of the whole. The same should be true of the church, especially where men are concerned. Becoming spiritually mature isn’t just learning more about God; it’s about stepping up to lead by serving.
In this message titled “Comfort and Joy” we will learn how Moses reassured the children of Israel that after his death God will send a new leader who will bring comfort and joy to them.
We are trying to understand what Jesus meant when He told His opponents “Moses wrote about Me.” The question is – how and where did Moses mention Jesus? Another clue is found in John 1:12-14 where Jesus is described as coming down to dwell among us and allowing us to see His glory and His grace. Did you know that this was “GOD’S CALLING CARD” in the Old Testament, especially Exodus 34:5-7?
In this episode, Pastor Abidan Shah focuses on first century techniques for interpreting Scripture. He addresses the three schools of thought related to biblical interpretation and how these are utilized today.
It is easy to praise God when things are going great but it is very hard to praise Him when they’re not.

In this third episode of Hoi Polloi, Abidan Shah interviews Dr. Maurice A. Robinson, a noted New Testament textual critic and Research Professor at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Robinson is the co-editor of the "The New Testament in the Original Greek: Byzantine Textform" and many other books and articles. In 2014, he was awarded a Festschrift by his friends and students for all his contributions in the field. In this interview we will chat with him about his reflection over the past four decades in New Testament Textual Criticism.
