Future Drama: Understanding Matthew 17

Matthew 17 contains a three-act play that, taken as a whole, constitutes a three-act drama about the future. In this episode of Ask the Theologian, Dr. Randy White teaches how the Transfiguration, the casting out of the demon from the boy, and the fish with a shekel to pay the Temple tax are all real events that have a deeper prophetic meaning concerning the future. As you watch this episode, you will learn to dig deep in the Word, looking for the clear signs of deeper meaning. Don't be short-changed by [...]

The Kingdom of God

The Kingdom of God is taught hundreds of times in the Scriptures, yet when asked, "What is the Kingdom of God," the answers are all over the map. I am convinced that most theological and practical error today comes from the implications of bad Kingdom theology. This episode of Ask the Theologian  helps straighten out Kingdom theology, and nails down a solid, literal view of the coming Kingdom. Beyond this broadcast, you may also be interested in this five-part recording of an online Bible study. Listen to this audio broadcast below. [...]

The Cry of the Ages

The cry of the human heart was voiced by John in the Revelation when he cried and cried because no one was found worthy to open the book. That cry began in Genesis 3, and it's cry is heard through the pages of the Hebrew Scriptures. As we celebrate Christmas, we rejoice that the cry of the ages has been met in a child born in Bethlehem, laid in a manger, and welcomed by angels. This broadcast will help you understand the story-line of the Old Testament, and help you rejoice [...]

Was Jesus Born December 25?

As you celebrate the birth of Jesus, you will surely hear someone speak about the pagan connections with Christmas, including the date of the celebration: December 25. In this episode of Ask the Theologian, Dr. Randy White proposes that the December 25 date may not be so pagan, but instead may be Biblically accurate. Did Christians adopt the date at random? How did the date become the standard and unquestioned date for the day of the celebration? Who was the "Committee for the setting of the date for Christmas?" Listen to [...]

Principles of Dispensational Biblical Interpretation

We have a Bible that is rich, meaningful, and accurate. How do we make it applicable without misusing the words of Scripture?  We are instructed to "rightly divide the Word of truth" (2 Timothy 3:16). In this episode of Ask the Theologian, Dr. Randy White gives principles of dispensational Biblical interpretation. Dispensationalism is a "hermeneutic," that is, a system of Biblical interpretation. Many confuse dispensationalism with an end-times world-view, but that is really an inaccurate view.  Dispensationalism has as much to do with the book of Genesis as it does the [...]

What is the New Covenant?

Christians are often taught that we are living under the New Covenant. It has been said so many times that it is now an unquestioned theology. This broadcast considers the Biblical basis of the common thinking of the New Covenant, and will cause you to rethink this issue. What does the New Covenant accomplish? Who is the New Covenant for? Are we living in the New Covenant? These questions are asked in this Biblical examination of New Covenant doctrine. This broadcast is available on CD or DVD for $10. To order, [...]

Ouija Boards, Seances, and Occultic Practices

At this time of year, there are a lot of enticements toward the mystery of a Ouija board and the aura of a séance. This broadcast deals with the occult (from a Latin term for “hidden”). The occult is a worship form–worship of that which is concealed. Since God has revealed Himself and His will in the Bible, Christians avoid occultic worship. […]

Will We Be Left Behind?

There is an anti-pretribulation rapture movement in the church today. Many church leaders, with a strong disdain for dispensational theology, are attacking the doctrine of a pre-trib rapture with a new fervor. The anti-rapture movement is growing, and is filled with misinformation. With the latest “Left Behind” movie, questions about and attacks on the rapture are very common. As one who is committed to the pre-tribulation rapture, I am using this episode of Ask the Theologian to address some of the concerns and misinformation from those who are in the anti-rapture movement. […]

Original Sin

The doctrine of original sin is taught as dogma, but the Biblical evidence for the doctrine is not a strong as one may think. Is mankind born guilty of Adam’s sin? Was the virgin birth a requirement for Jesus to be born free from original sin? These are the kinds of questions we are asking in this episode of Ask the Theologian. They are dangerous questions because Original Sin is seen as a doctrine so logical that it should not be questioned. However, good student’s of the Word always “search the Scriptures to see if these things are so” (Acts 17:11). […]
