Rank #6: The Apocalyptic Paul - KR 27

What happened when Jesus came to Earth?

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

Podcast cover
Read more
In our quest to renew the church, Christians have walked through seeker-friendly, emergent, missional, and other movements to develop new expressions of the body of Christ. Now in the post-Christian world in North America we're asking the question again: Is there a way to be the church that engages the world, not by judgment nor accommodation but by becoming the good news in our culture?

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

Podcast cover

Stories have power.

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

Podcast cover
Read more
When God calls His people into mission He doesn’t call individuals, rather He calls a community.

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.

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.
