Advent 2019 Week 2

Our Advent series continues with a deep-dive on the mystery of Immanuel, “God with us.” She Reads Truth’s content director, John Greco, joins Raechel and Amanda as they trace the presence of God through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. What did God’s presence look like in the Old Testament? How does the Christmas story accomplish God’s mission of dwelling with His people? How is “God with us” our true and forever hope?With a little help from their buddies Lewis, Spurgeon, and (Jimmy) Stewart, the trio explores the miracle of the incarnation, the glory of God’s presence, and the promise that we will dwell with the Lord forever. Amanda does some praise-handsing over Isaiah 41, John wonders where Cain and Abel brought their sacrifices, and Raechel can’t help but sing…just a little. Read with Us: This episode corresponds to Week 2 of the She Reads Truth A Thrill of Hope: Advent 2019 reading plan found on the She Reads Truth app and SheReadsTruth.com. Advent 2019 Collection at ShopSheReadsTruth.com Open Your Bibles: (passages referenced in this episode) Isaiah 7:14Genesis 3Genesis 4:1–7Genesis 11:1–9Deuteronomy 32:7–9Genesis 12:1–3; 15:1–6; 17:15–19Isaiah 41:17–20Exodus 31 Kings 6Exodus 25:40; Hebrews 8:5Ezekiel 37:14Exodus 34:29–35Philippians 2:5–8Revelation 21:1–5Other Links: “The Eternal Being, who knows everything and who created the whole universe, became not only a man but (before that) a baby, and before that a foetus inside a woman’s body.

Advent 2019 Week 3

On this episode of the She Reads Truth podcast, founders Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams try to stump She Reads Truth content director, John Greco, with all their Christmas questions. When exactly was Jesus born? Was the “inn” really an inn? Were animals present? What about the wise men? How could Joseph and Mary afford to flee to Egypt? Why do we still have so many questions about a story we’ve known since we were kids? Armed with neon ski caps and cups of coffee, the trio ventures down these and other rabbit trails related to the Christmas story, asking, “What does Scripture actually say?” They find some answers and oddities along the way, and find, once again, that God’s Word only grows richer under the microscope of our honest questions. Read with Us: This episode corresponds to Week 3 of the She Reads Truth A Thrill of Hope: Advent 2019 reading plan found on the She Reads Truth app and SheReadsTruth.com. Advent 2019 Collection at ShopSheReadsTruth.com Additional show notes can be found at shereadstruth.com/podcast/advent-2019-week-3/

From his heaven-born dreams to the depths of prison, all the way to the second highest office in Egypt, God was with Joseph. Kelly and our hosts talk about the power of God to bring goodness from the most trying of circumstances and the sort of faith that would make a dying man ask that his bones be buried in a distant land.Read with Us: This episode corresponds to Week 5 of the She Reads Truth Genesis: Back to the Beginning reading plan found on the She Reads Truth app and SheReadsTruth.com. Shop the Genesis collection at ShopSheReadsTruth.com.Save 15% on our 2020 Lent Collection, His Love Endures when you use the code LENT15. Show notes can be found at shereadstruth.com/podcast/genesis-week-5/

Philippians - Week 1 |Raechel, Amanda, and John are back together to dive into the first week of the SRT Philippians reading plan. They discuss how Paul's encouraging letter to the church at Philippi puts the upside-down nature of God's kingdom on full display: Suffering and joy go hand in hand, death has lost its sting, and every gain is counted as loss when compared to the blessing of knowing Christ.
