About the show

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.
