TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

Welcome to 2021. We're kicking off the New Year with two of our favorite and most popular episodes.  Our guest is Jon Benzinger, Lead Pastor at Redeemer Bible in Gilbert, AZ.  He's done extensive study on the multiple lines of evidence for the reliability and trustworthiness of the Bible. Jon is an excellent communicator and engaged with Lynn and me with authenticity and clarity.  He has an incredible heart for people, especially the predominant demographics in Gilbert -- Hispanics, retirees, and Mormons.
The question of why we can trust the Bible, and just as importantly, why we should live consistently with what the Bible teaches, made for a fun and fast-paced conversation with Jon.  Lynn and I were encouraged and inspired by this episode and we are excited we get to kick off the 2021 podcast season by sharing it with you.   Happy New Year!

Note: This podcast originally aired as Episode #069.
