In today’s episode, Jeff tries something new. He wants you to meet his friend Dr. Edward Sri.
Dr. Sri is a theologian, speaker, author of several bestselling books, and also hosts a podcast. He just authored a brand new book entitled “No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion.” In addition to the book, he went to Israel to film videos that allow you to meditate on Christ’s passion in a much deeper way.
Jeff and Dr. Sri also answer tough questions such as:
If God is going to wipe away our sin, couldn't there have been another way besides crucifixion?
Was Jesus abandoned by the Father when he called out “My God, my God. Why have you forsaken me?”
Did Jesus have second thoughts about dying for our sins when he asked God to “let this cup pass from me?”
Snippet from the Show:
“You will never see God’s love more beautifully shine than in these accounts of Christ’s passion.”
