  • Episode 31 - God's Four Part Story - Chapter 3: Redemption
  • Our summer series continues as Kyle, Linda, and Matt take a look at Chapter 3 of God's Four Part Story - Redemption. We answer the question, "What is the Gospel?" and discuss various ways we can encounter and teach the truths of the redemption to our students. How do we walk along students and encourage them to realize Jesus as their savior, first and foremost, rather than as just an example to follow? Matt helps us understand redemption as Jesus "buying us back" from sin because he delights to have a relationship with us.
