#81 - Union with Christ w/ Kyle Worley

#81 - Union with Christ w/ Kyle Worley

October 14, 2021

“Union with Christ, our participation in Christ, means that we have been given a new identity that doesn’t just save us from what was. It invites us into what could be. It becomes the grounds of our sanctification and our pursuit of holiness.”

 

Today’s interview is with Kyle Worley, Lead Pastor and Church Planter of Mosaic Church in Richardson, TX and co-host of the Knowing Faith podcast. He graciously talks to us about the doctrine of union with Christ, a foundational reality of the Christian life.

 

Union with Christ definitions:

  • “The intimate, vital, and spiritual union between Christ and His people, in virtue of which He is the source of their life and strength, of their blessedness and salvation.” (Louis Berkhof)
  • Kyle’s baseline definition: “Christians, God’s covenant people, are in Christ Jesus.”

 

Verses on this topic (in episode): Jn. 17; Rom. 5; 6:4-5; Gal. 2:20; Eph. 1:3-14; Heb. 10:14; also covenant language in the OT: Gen. 12; 15; 17; 22; Ex. 20-34; Deuteronomy; etc.

  • the saving of Moses’ life
  • how Moses and Noah were both on an ark
  • Moses growing up
  • how Moses killing the Egyptian was not a sin
  • Moses, Elijah, and Jesus all in the wilderness
  • Moses’ life foreshadowing Israel’s story later in Exodus
  • God’s covenant faithfulness

#78 - Paul as the Opposite of Gilderoy Lockhart (2 Cor. 12)

June 21, 2021

In this episode we discuss 2 Cor. 12, a chapter in the book of 2 Corinthians that is rather well-known for its strong emphasis on Christ’s power being displayed through our weakness. In addition to this theme, we also talk about Paul’s vision, “boasting,” and conflict with his flesh.

In this episode we discuss 2 Cor. 11, the longest chapter in the book of 2 Corinthians. In addition to understanding the foolish boasting discussed, we hope that you are encouraged by the Scripture and our conversation to push forward in the fight against darkness and be willing to endure risk and hardship for the spread of the gospel.

#73 - The Importance of Deuteronomy w/ Dr. Kyong-Jin Lee

May 27, 2021

Today’s interview is with Dr. Kyong-Jin Lee, who is Associate Professor of Old Testament Studies at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA. Dr. Lee talks to us about why Deuteronomy is so important for understanding the rest of the Old Testament, Israel’s relationship with other nations as they show God’s glory to the world, the theme of covenant, and seeing God’s law as a blessing rather than as a barrier or limitation. The entire conversation made Deuteronomy feel immensely practical, helpful, and fruitful for God’s people. We hope you enjoy the conversation!
