Podcast #33: How Did We Come to Know the Good News of Jesus Christ?

Welcome to the 33rd edition of the Making the Word Known podcast!

In this edition Ethan continues discussing the class on Telling the Good News of Jesus Christ as taught in the Venice church of Christ. He discusses the importance of knowing how we came to learn of the Good News of Jesus Christ so that we are more effective in telling others.

– Witness is a prevalent theme throughout the preaching of the Gospel
– All of us believe in Christ based on Apostolic witness and testimony
– Testifying is not “telling them what God has done in your life”; we must bear witness to the Apostolic witness regarding what God has done through Jesus (cf. John 20:30-31).
– We must know from where we have learned the Gospel so that we can simultaneously (a) be aware of our own biases, emphases, reactions, etc., and (b) be able to empathize with those with whom we share the Gospel.
