Most Christians have a desire to know and understand the Bible better, but what if their study and research only provides you with half the information you need?
'Foundations' is about filling in the gaps with the information most people miss or are unaware of. The truth is that over time words, definitions and culture changes in dramatic ways and applying present day understanding and meanings to words, phrases and events, can lead to very different conclusions. By learning about the Jewish and Hebrew culture that the Bible was set in and the environment, traditions and understandings of the people whom God chose to write down His Word, we can gain a bigger, deeper and richer understanding of God's Word that we love so much.
You can tune in at 1:10pm and 10:45pm every Monday to Friday.
Also available on podcast and the notes will also be online as well.
Most important to Mandy is her husband Ian of almost 34yrs, her 3 gorgeous sons, 2 beautiful daughters-in-law, 2 precious grandchildren, her spotty Dalmatian and her 8 feathered friends.
Mandy's been involved in Christian media since 1993 at Rhema FM in Port Macquarie, NSW and at Vision since 2000, where she is currently the evening host of Night Vision.
Mandy has a deep love for the Bible, the nation and people of Israel and particularly a love for the Word of God. One of her greatest joys is co-leading biannual Biblical tours to Israel with Ian.
Mandy's deep love for the Word of God and for Israel come together in her personal desire to encourage other believers to explore and appreciate the Jewish roots of their Christian faith and to develop a love for God's Word, His land and His people.
On our last program we began looking at what it means to walk in the dust of our Rabbi and we took a look at the difference between the Greek and Hebrew mindsets. Because the Hebrew mindset is primarily practical, physical and literal, it’s important that we understand the correct context of the Bible and …Read More
We began in our previous program to look at what it means to walk in the dust of our Rabbi, we learned a little bit about how without the understand of the Jewish cultural context of Jesus day or the setting that the Bible was written in, we can easily put our own spin on …Read More
Throughout the centuries different countries have pictured Jesus through the lens of their own culture. An artist in Peru would paint Him with dark braided hair and a poncho with a Peruvian face, while artists in Europe have painted Him with blond hair and blue eyes and the Ethiopians portray Him as a tall black …Read More
On the last program we learned about the painting of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting, the Last Supper, and how it took 22 years for a restoration work to be done on it. The end result was a picture that looked very different but still the same. The errors were fixed, the colours were bright and …Read More
Before we get into the subject of Living Water, I want to give another analogy to emphasise why the Jewish or Hebrew foundations of our faith are so important. Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’ was painted in 1498 and over the centuries it fell into a terrible state. Some of the paint was flaking off …Read More
