Mornings w Carmen 4-16-2019 hour 2: a doctor examines the crucifixion and Phil Joel on Redwoods and Whales

(I don’t know what happened to this post but yes, there was an hour 2 in yesterday’s show! Here it is!)

Dr. David Stevens shares the truth about what happened to Jesus following his arrest, up to and through the crucifixion. It is, literally, excruciating. Difficult to listen to and imagine? Yes. But we are mindful that in so doing He bore our sins.

A few takeaways: You can only speak when exhaling which makes the 7 things Jesus said from the cross all the more extraordinary. To get enough breath to speak at that point would have been torturous.

  • Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing. Luke 23:34. …
  • Today you will be with me in paradise. Luke 23:43. …
  • Behold your son: behold your mother. …
  • My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? …
  • I thirst. …
  • It is finished. …
  • Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

Carmen’s friend Dr. Alex Metherell has written this piece on the same topic.  (Hint: Click through until you actually arrive at the pdf)

 

Phil Joel, of Newsboys United, joins Carmen for a refreshing conversation about personal revival and real life in Christ. No more half-life, this is the real deal! The book is Redwoods and Whales: Becoming who you actually are –  and Phil joined Carmen on the book’s launch day!

Here’s the question for you: today, could you take a single step in the right direction? Could you – would you – take a single step in the direction of God? If you would, God would draw near to you! What a promise – what a life!
