James & Ade’s Daily Bible Study

It has been a LONG time since I’ve had the pleasure of sitting down and writing a post. I miss it. I love writing. More on that at a different time…

In short, one of the reasons I’ve been writing less is that I believe primary information mediums have changed. Podcasts became in the late 2010s what blogs were in the late 2000s. Podcasting is still a rapidly growing field. But I’ve also had a strong desire in recent years to put together a modern, relevant Bible commentary in a format that works for contemporary Christians. And so I’ve been sketching out podcasting plans for the past couple of years. Eventually, what I want to now introduce you to, will be turned into a podcast format.

The goal? A daily Bible Study that is accessible to Christians, able to be leveraged during our many multitasking opportunities throughout the day – in the car, during exercise at the gym, getting ready for bed, etc.

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed my plans ahead a bit, but I’ve already laid out an entire biblical paraphrase. One chapter per day, I want to lay out the 1) WHAT?, 2) What does this MEAN?, and 3) What does this mean FOR ME? of Scripture in three daily devotional thoughts for each chapter. My wife, Adrian, is helping me and trying to keep me on track so that I don’t stray too far into abstract biblical nuances, but stay grounded in matters relevant to Christians in their daily lives.

We’d love for you to come along on this journey with us! Check out the videos below, subscribe to the channel, and stay tuned for the podcast version.

Some examples…

Again, all of the videos, and much more content, including weekly worship services, additional studies, children’s ministry, and worship music can be found at our St. Marcus YouTube Channel.

    Awesome. This is so cool.
    Thanks for pondering how best to share, and of course, for sharing.

    I have been following your bible study from Day 1. I enjoy it very much. I can’t figure out how to leave any questions (utube). I’m wondering why more wasn’t said about Judah (when he was born to Leah) and his connection to the line of the Savior. Was it only after the sins of Reuben, Simeon, and Levi that Judah became in line for the Savior? (What about the sins of David, Solomon, etc?)
    Another observation I had is about when Jacob was successful at breeding sheep…I believe I was once taught that there was actually a scientific reason that the saplings in the drinking water helped in that regard. I’m not sure, but someone that breeds animals could possibly answer that. Or give some sort of an explanation about it.
    Thanks for all you do. It is a very interesting class.

    I started following Bread for Beggars a while back and I noticed your content had stopped coming in. While I enjoy reading work from the other contributors, I always loved the intellectual depth your posts went into. If you ever write a book I’d love to buy a copy. Thanks for bringing a relevant way to interact with the gospel. From Texas.
