Rank #6: The Apocalyptic Paul - KR 27
The Apocalyptic Paul camp suggests Jesus’ coming was a sudden disruptive in breaking of God’s redemptive plan at the cosmic level. They claim Jesus’ coming completely shatters all that we know about God and defines the revelation of God. In this episode, Scot breaks down how this camp of Pauline study arose and it’s significance for the Church today.

Rank #7: Faithful Presence: A Conversation with David Fitch - KR 29
In this episode of Kingdom Roots, Scot has a conversation with noted pastor, scholar, and his friend David Fitch about his new book, Faithful Presence. In Faithful Presence, David gives a new vision for the witness of the church in the world. He argues that we have lost the intent and practice of the sacramental ways of the historic church, but those ways can be rediscovered if the church goes back to the practices that anchored the church from its birth.

Rank #8: The Barren Fig Tree: A Parable of Jesus (Luke 13:6-9) - KR 42
No matter what you think about Jesus, no one can deny that he was a master storyteller. Jesus’ stories or parables were used to invite listeners to imagine a world saturated in Kingdom living. These stories inspire, disrupt, and sometimes even trick us into understanding the truth.
In this episode Scot and Chaz have a conversation with Scott Reed about the Parable of the Barren Fig Tree. This parable shocks the listener into hearing some important truths when it comes to God’s judgment and justice.

Rank #10: Paul and His Missionary Friends (Part 2)- KR 22
Paul exemplifies this reality with his missionary friends. These friends are indispensable to how God used Paul to bring the kingdom to take root in the 1st Century world. Some of Paul’s closest missionary friends included Priscilla and Aquila who provide a beautiful example of an entire household doing ministry together. Epaphras is another great example of how Paul befriended a nonbeliever, led them into a relationship with Jesus, and sent them out to do ministry.

Rank #15: Did Jesus Preach the Gospel? (Q Ideas Conference) - KR 118
If all the words mean the same thing, they mean nothing. Occasionally words risk losing their meaning because they get stretched to cover too many concepts. In this talk, Scot contends that the gospel is one of those words that has stretched to become something that is not described in the New Testament. What is the gospel and is it possible that Jesus couldn’t have preached the gospel?

Rank #19: The King Jesus Gospel (Pepperdine Bible Lectures) - KR 78
Sign up for the Taste of Northern here: https://goo.gl/3meQcP
Contemporary evangelicals have built a "salvation culture" but not a "gospel culture." Evangelicals have reduced the gospel to the message of personal salvation. Scot makes a plea for us to recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh.

Rank #20: Jesus Creed (Part 1) - KR 89
When an expert in the law asked Jesus for the greatest commandment, Jesus responded with the Shema, the ancient Jewish creed that commands Israel to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength. But the next part of Jesus' answer would change the course of history. Jesus amended the Shema, giving his followers a new creed for life: to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, but also to love others as themselves. Discover how the Jesus Creed of love for God and others can transform your life
