Years ago I heard one of my mentors, Evan Wickham, use a phrase I found compelling. He said: “Jesus is what God has to say.” It was powerful and it stuck with me. Over the years I’ve been mulling over this phrase and thinking about how it intersects with one of the debates that’s being had within Christianity about the concept of “the word of God.”
Some people insist the Bible is the word of God. Still others insist, no Jesus is the Word of God. Where does the truth lie?
That’s the question we are going to dive into today.
On this episode I’m joined by that same mentor I learned the phrase “Jesus Is what God has to say” from: my former youth pastor and good friend, Evan Wickham. I know you’re going to be blessed to hear from Evan today. If you don’t know him, he’s a worship leader, Husband and father of 5 kids, a graduate of western seminary, and a church planting pastor who leads Park Hill Church in San Diego.
I can’t speak more highly of the guy. He’s been one of the people in my life who has challenged me and inspired me to follow Jesus the most. He’s always encouraged me to dive deep, not shy away from tough questions, and has always pointed me back to Christ. In fact, if it wasn’t for the ways he impacted me over the years, this show and ministry of GoodLion probably wouldn’t exist!
With all that said, I know you’re going to enjoy todays episode as we explore the concept of the “Word of God”, and ask who, or what, is the Word of God? We get deep. We get Biblical. I know that I learned a lot, and I hope you do too.
I hope this conversation between a teacher and his former student blesses you, encourages you, challenges you, and surprises you.
