In Jeremiah 23:5-6 the Messiah is referred to a “Righteous Branch.” As we continue our investigation of these 16 prophecies, we increasingly see that only a divine being who comes as a human could fulfill these predictions. We’ll also see the Messiah will be one who rides on clouds and comes again, helping to complete the puzzle that reveals Jesus as the Messiah.
Isaiah 53 predicted the suffering servant would be both a ruler, yet humble himself to the point of death. In this session, we’ll look at further details regarding Isaiah 53 that increasingly point to Jesus and only Jesus as the Jewish Messiah.
Isaiah 53 speaks directly regarding the pain the Messiah would endure on behalf of his sheep. Do these details fit the punishment endured by Jesus? In this session, we’ll consider the evidence that connects these prophecies with what took place hundreds of years later in the suffering and death of Jesus upon the cross and discover an astounding number of features that highlight Jesus is the suffering servant.
In this week’s program, we’ll look at some of the prophecies Isaiah provided to give additional details regarding the identity and activities of the Messiah. As we do, we’ll find that Jesus came not only to prove His power, but also to endure pain on our behalf. These humbling predictions are intended to point us toward salvation in the Messiah Jesus and give us courage and boldness to share Him with others.
This week on the John Ankerberg Show, we’ll see how God revealed the Messiah would also come through the line of David and serve as king forever. This would later be emphasized in Matthew 1, in which Jesus is shown as a descendant of both Abraham and David. As we investigate these additional prophecies, you’ll discover much additional information regarding the details that point toward Jesus as the Messiah.
On this week’s program, we will learn that Moses helps to specify the identity even further to one who would be both human and divine. The Messiah would not only be a king; He would be King of kings and Lord of lords. You’ll find more of the amazing evidence pointing toward Jesus as the Messiah in this program and be strengthened in the information to support your faith in Christ.
In this program, Dr. Ankerberg with Dr. Walter Kaiser and Dr. Darrell Bock discuss Old Testament prophecies about the coming Messiah and offer evidence that shows how these earliest prophecies of the Messiah point toward the coming of Jesus. You’ll grow in both your knowledge of Scripture and encouragement in God’s Word as you see the divine plan God has developed since the beginning of Scripture.
Lee Strobel graduated from Yale University with his law degree. And then for 13 years he was the award winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune. But what we are talking about is his story, because he was a skeptic for most of his life. And it took him two years to investigate the claims of Jesus Christ and to know what to do with it. The evidence brought him to faith in Jesus Christ, and what we are talking about today is that evidence. What five “e” words or phrases encapsulate the compelling evidence for Jesus?
In this program, Dr. Ankerberg and guests, Sandra Tanner, Michael Wilder, Dr. Lynn Wilder, will look at some of the basic beliefs regarding God according to Mormon teachings, including stories from John’s guests as former Mormons who explain what life was like and how they turned to biblical Christianity. As we do, we’ll find the answers to some of the questions generally held about Mormons along with a deeper understanding of our own Christian faith.
Should Scripture and science be compatible? Some argue that the focus should only be on God’s Word; other argue science should be the focus. But is there room for both?
Scripture is clear that God did not evolve people; He created them. Each form of life was specifically designed by God on purpose and for a purpose. God specifically created man and woman, Adam and Eve, in His own image, providing for them through their surroundings in the Garden of Eden and extending fellowship to them.
Both Scripture and science point to a time of creation; yet only Scripture declares God is the One who created. Genesis 1 and 2 reveal that He created, what He created, and some details of how and in what order He created. In this session, Dr. Ross discusses some of these aspects of God’s creative work on earth, while Dr. Kaiser’s clips offer additional insight regarding Scripture’s intended meaning of the “days” of creation.
There is much debate regarding the actual “days” of creation in Genesis 1 and 2. Were these 24 hour days, long periods of time, or simply poetry with no reference to time? How do the vast numbers of stars relate to how we understand creation? What is the importance of dark energy? Is there some way in which the Genesis account of creation and the scientific evidence correspond with one another?
Have you ever considered that the skies “shout out” evidence for God? The more scientists learn about the sun, moon, stars, and other components of outer space, the more evidence is found for an Intelligent Designer who created all things.
The Bible affirms that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. As scientists discover the details regarding the universe’s creation, they are finding an enormous level of complexity. This complexity is so far beyond what had been previously expected or known that the information increasingly points to a supernatural Creator of all things rather than a universe evolving over time through chance or random processes.
Does Genesis 1 reflect what science has recently discovered about the creation of the universe? In this session Dr. Hugh Ross shows this is increasingly the case. As astronomers look back at the timing and intricate details of the galaxies, the evidence is growing to show the universe had a beginning, followed by the creation of planet earth in such a way that coincides with the opening verses of Genesis 1.
Do the Bible’s opening words “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” offer a scientifically accurate view of the universe? Astronomer Dr. Hugh Ross reveals in this session that the evidence increasingly points toward a beginning of all space, matter, time, and energy in a way that affirms this biblical conviction.
In this program, we’ll take a look at some of the latest discoveries that have scientists of all backgrounds speaking of a clear beginning to the universe that opens anew the discussion of the God of the Bible. As we do, you’ll discover fascinating new insight regarding God’s Word and how it can apply to your life today.
In this session, we’ll hear how Ken Tada, husband of Joni Eareckson Tada, and Cindy Easley, wife of Dr. Michael Easley adjusted to the initial adjustments of becoming a caregiver and the challenges faced in the process.Together, these two couples provide years of experience and biblical wisdom vital to encourage those who serve in caregiving roles.
In this week’s John Ankerberg Show with guests, Joni and Ken Tada and Michael and Cindy Easley, we’ll take time to discuss how to end well in caregiving. Whether you are in the position of facing the upcoming death of your loved one or have recently encountered the loss of someone, you’ll find that Scripture offers much to help.
After the initial shock of a diagnosis or bad news in our lives, there is the ongoing realization of its impact. In this session, called “The Duration,” Dr. Michael Easley and Joni Eareckson Tada share some of the ways they have dealt with the tedious and often-painful experiences associated with the daily grind of chronic pain and disability.
In this special Easter presentation of the John Ankerberg Show, Dr. John Ankerberg along with some of the world’s foremost archaeologists and scholars, explore the four fundamental historical facts that prove Jesus rose from the dead. Almost all secular as well as Christian scholars agree to the historical accuracy of these facts, providing convincing evidence for the resurrection.
Dr. Erwin Lutzer, Dr. David Jeremiah, Lee Strobel, Dr. N. T. Wright, Dr. Hugh Ross and others, along with Morgan Jackson and Steve Steele join Dr. John Ankerberg to explain the Great Commission, and how modern technology is providing access to God’s Word in amazing new ways.
This week on the John Ankerberg Show, Dr. Ankerberg discusses how to reach the Muslim world for Christ. Guests Dr. Emir Caner and Dr. Ergun Caner along with best-selling author, Tom Doyle, explain how Jesus is making Himself known throughout North Africa and the Middle East.
Today you will hear Dr. John MacArthur, the late Dr. D. James Kennedy and Dr. R. C. Sproul answer questions about a topic that concerns many of our viewers all over the world. Why is it that the two largest representatives of the Christian faith, namely the Roman Catholic Church and Evangelical Protestants give completely different answers to the questions: How does a person become a Christian? And on what basis does God promise to forgive a person of their sins?
Lee Strobel joins Dr. John Ankerberg to answer the question, did Jesus ever claim to be the Son of God. Also, in this program, Joni Eareckson Tada and Dr. Michael Easley explain how God helps us when we suffer.
What are 5 crucial issues facing the world today? What are the topics that are critical in every culture? Featuring a program from each of our series examining The Evidence for Jesus’ Resurrection, Are Mormons Christians, Trapped Behind the Veil of Islam, God’s Help When You Suffer and Protestants and Catholics: Do They Now Agree?, Dr. Ankerberg explores these issues in depth. Guests include: Lee Strobel, Sandra Tanner, Emir and Ergun Caner, Joni Eareckson Tada, Dr. Michael Easley, Dr. John MacArthur, the late Dr. D. James Kennedy and Dr. R. C. Sproul.
Scholars often speak of the Rapture as an “imminent” event, but what does this mean? In this week’s John Ankerberg Show, the discussion will focus on this important term that describes the teaching of the Rapture happening at “any moment” along with the biblical passages that emphasize this aspect of the Rapture.
In this program, Dr. John Ankerberg and his guests, Dr. Renald Showers and Dr. Jimmy DeYoung, discuss the differences between the times when the Rapture and Second Coming will occur. We hope you’ll be encouraged by this program to live each day with a life devoted to the Lord and committed to sharing Him with others.
The Bible is clear that there will be certain signs that take place during the last days. However, the signs described are different in the passages that take place at the Rapture and at the Second Coming. At the Rapture, no signs must first take place. At the Second Coming, there will be many. In this program, guests Dr. Renald Showers and Dr. Jimmy DeYoung along with Dr. John Ankerberg look at the fifth difference between these two events—a difference between the number of signs that are given for each event—and why this difference matters.
