Strength to Strength welcomed John D. Martin to discuss what Jesus intended for his followers in relation to finances.
Using the Sermon on the Mount as his text, he explores the difficult words of Jesus. Can we make sense of these passages without dodging its plainest meaning?
An interactive question-and-answer period follows.
John D. Martin is an itinerant Bible teacher with interests in a diversity of Christian topics including church history, economics, music, and church as community. He compiled the hymnbook Hymns of the Church.
One of John’s passions is to help people see that the main theme of Scripture is not the “scarlet thread” of Jesus’ atonement, but rather the Kingdom of God; our salvation is a means to and end, the end being the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom is intended to demonstrate the excellence of God’s character and his manifold wisdom, and this theme runs through the entire Bible.
He lives in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania and is a part of Shippensburg Christian Fellowship.
