I have a very special guest here in the camper today. I will introduce you to here in just a minute, but before we get into today’s topic I have a couple of special requests to make of you.
First, I want to thank you for being such an awesome audience. Your notes and words of encouragement mean more to me than you could possibly know. With that in mind, would you share this podcast with your network? The only way I have of expanding this show is by word of mouth. We have no such thing as a marketing budget. So, if you would let your family and friends, or your FB and Twitter network know about this radio show, it would mean the world to me. And hopefully they will get some benefit from listening.
Also, and I’m truly excited to share this, Brittan and I are going to Scotland for the month of October. We will be preaching in congregations, visiting with pastors, elders, ministry leaders, Govt. workers, social agencies, business leaders and more to nail down the direction of our long term ministry goals for our ministry, ‘Scotland Rising.’ But….we need your help to get there. Including plane tickets, we need about $7500 to make the trip happen. Would you consider a one time donation towards this vision trip? To make it easier to donate, we have created a Crowd Rise campaign. The url for that is http://tinyurl.com/hjujgeo. I will include the link in the show notes. All the information is on the campaign page. If you want more information, or would rather donate by check, ping me by email or Twitter.
Ok, thanks for prayerfully considering those requests. Now, back to business. This week, we’re looking at the second letter of John, better known as 2nd John.
I have always found 2 John to be fascinating. There are some interesting messages in those 13 verses that make up this book. It only takes a couple minutes to read and you can brag to your friends that you read a whole book of the Bible today!
As I mentioned earlier, I have a very special guest in studio with me today. This is episode 39 and this is my first guest. Shame on me. My guest is absolutely awesome, but I confess I have a natural bias, because she is also my wife, Brittan.
Brittan and I cover a variety of topics including who 2nd John is addressed to, the nature of truth, False Teachers and Gnosticism. It was fun having her in the studio. I hope you enjoy it.
Next week I’ll be taking a look at 3rd John. Wow, we’re nearly finished with the New Testament. Amazing.
