Cities Of Refuge

When we start a project, it's pretty important to follow all the way through. This is doubly important when the task is assigned to us by God. Dr. John Akers gives an example of this from the book of Joshua in today's Understanding God's Word.

Division Of The Land

Some passages of the scripture seem to have no purpose other than historical record. Why are they included? Is there any reason to read them other than academic curiosity? In this installment of Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers argues that these verses have immediate, relevant meaning to us today.

The God Of Surprises

God's ways are not our ways, and sometimes we can be caught off guard by His actions. What can we do when God throws us for a loop? Dr. John Akers discusses this problem in today's Understanding God's Word.

Dealing With Failure

Even God's chosen leader, Joshua, encountered failure. It is inevitable that we all fail at one thing or another in this life, even when we do our best. What is the appropriate way for us to deal with this as Christians? Dr. John Akers discusses this question in today's Understanding God's Word.

The Conquest Of Ai

The Hebrews of the Old Testament were commanded by God to destroy all the people of Canaan. Why would God give a command that seems so contradictory to the loving commandments we follow today? Dr. John Akers discusses this question in today's Understanding God's Word.

The Fall Of Jericho

The fall of Jericho is one of the most famous stories in the Bible. It is a compelling historical tale, but how does it apply to our lives today? In this episode of Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers brings this old story to a new light.

Crossing The Jordan

In this installation of our study of the book of Joshua, we reach the story of the crossing of the Jordan River. Dr. John Akers walks us through this most epic of Old Testament events in Understanding God's Word.

The Preparation of Joshua

Sometimes God asks things of us that seem impossible. In today's installment of Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers discusses the example that Joshua set in such a situation.

Looking Back On The Old Testament

In this episode we begin a survey of the Old Testament books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. Dr. John Akers gives an overview of the Old Testament to give us some background before we begin.

Defending From Danger

Dr. John Akers concludes our study of the General Epistles with an overview of the little book of Jude in today's "Understanding God's Word."

Letters From The Elder

Sometimes reading the whole Bible can be so intimidating that we don't read it at all. What can you do when you're overwhelmed by the sheer size of the Bible? Read the short books! Dr. John Akers introduces us to 2nd and 3rd John in this installment of "Understanding God's Word."
