In his new book, Baptismal River, Pastor Richard Davenport explains that baptismal theology can be seen throughout Scripture. By analyzing the flood, creation, Jesus’ Baptism, and other events in the Bible, he shows how the Bible teaches us what it means to live a baptized life. In this episode, we’ll learn about forgiveness and how crossing the Red Sea connects to Jesus’ command to baptize.
Thy Strong Word, hosted by Rev. Dr. Phil Booe, pastor of St. John Lutheran Church of Luverne, MN, reveals the light of our salvation in Christ through study of God’s Word, breaking our darkness with His redeeming light. Each weekday, two pastors fix our eyes on Jesus by considering Holy Scripture, verse by verse, in order to be strengthened in the Word and be equipped to faithfully serve in our daily vocations.
