Ep 117: The Pessimistic Perception of Pastoral Ministry

On this episode of the Ephesiology Podcast, Andrew, Matt, and Michael discuss a recent survey revealing that the majority of US pastors believe people in their congregations lack commitment. At the core of the survey is the gap between the pulpit and the pew. It’s reminiscent of the classic story of the monkey and the fish. Join our podcasters as they discuss the importance for pastors to understand their congregation and the need for the church to reorient herself to a cathartic, analytic, and catalytic paradigm.

Ep 115: Theological Education for the Church

On this episode of the Ephesiology Podcast, Andrew, Matt, and Michael are joined by Dr. Scott Manor, president of Knox Theological Seminary to discuss theological education and the church. Accessibility is one of the major issues confronting seminaries around the country. Innovative seminaries are stepping away from the traditional campus model and taking seminary to the church. Additionally, innovative seminaries do not only prepare pastors for the pulpit, but they also equip all people-plumbers, electricians, educators, doctors-to be leaders in their communities and churches.

Ep 114: Church Planters and Theological Education

On this episode of the Ephesiology Podcast, we begin a multi-part series on theological education. In part one, we focus in on church planters and theological education. While enrollment in theological education is at an all-time high, according to the Association of Theological Schools, the question remains whether or not seminary is still relevant. We believe it is, and the seminaries that will lead into the future will be accessible from the church planters place of ministry, affordable so the church planters doesn’t go into debt, and relevant to the church planters ministry context.

Ep 5: End a Theological Famine

There’s a famine in the land. It’s not the kind of famine we usually associate with the needs in the majority world. It’s a theological famine depriving church leaders and pastors from theological instruction that can help them mature biblically sound disciples, develop New Testament leaders, and multiple theologically orthodox churches. Listen to more on the 10-minute Ephesiologist with Dr. Michael T.

Ep 91: The Completion of God’s Mission

What is the new heaven and new earth? Join our final episode as we conclude with the exciting completion of God’s mission. Throughout Revelation, we’ve seen God’s remarkable patience, as well as His continual pursuit of relationships with people. He’s given warnings and admonitions. So, it is no surprise that John reveals the place where God will “wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for he former things have passed away” (Rev 21:4).

We continue our series on the Book of Revelation with a discussion about the two witnesses and the beast from the bottomless pit (Rev 11).

Join us this week on the Ephesiology Podcast as Dr. Feiser, Dr. Harris, and Dr. Cooper discuss what seal 5 reveals about Jesus’ disciples.

Ep 82: Jesus is Worthy

The portrait that John paints in the book of Revelation often appears strange and unusual to the modern reader. The living creatures with multiple eyes and wings surrounding the throne can become a distraction from the real scope of Revelation 4 and 5. On today’s podcast, Dr. Harris, Dr. Feiser, and Dr. Cooper dive into the imagery of these two notable chapters and draw our attention to the genuine worship of Jesus. We’ll discover the theocentric and missiological themes highlighted in these chapters and so prevalent through the book. Ultimately, chapters 4 and 5 focus on the throne and the worship of Jesus.

Ep 79: Interpreting Revelation

Revelation is one of the most difficult books in the Bible to interpret and it is also one of the most abused and ignored books of the Bible. In this first session on our series focused on rediscovering Jesus through Revelation, Dr. Feiser, Dr. Harris, and Dr. Cooper discuss four interpretative strategies used to understand Revelation: Historicist, Idealist, Preterist, and Futurist.
