God's Habit Of Picking The Last, First
During today's conversation on Back Porch Theology we're going to explore the miraculously cohesive band of brothers Jesus chose to be His disciples, and how they modeled unity not uniformity. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find a group of men in the Ancient Near East who were more diametrically opposed with regards to cultural views and societal norms. The Hatfields and McCoys might've had more things in common than the original twelve! And in light of Jesus intentionally choosing exactly a dozen raggamuffins to follow Him - which many scholars say is a nod to the orginal twelve tribes - we're heading back to the Old Testament today too to highlight a hapax legomenon (which means a word or expression that's only used once in a linguistic context or entire text) that pretty much proves the adage, "God doesn't always call those who are equipped, but He always equips those He calls!" So please grab a cup of coffee and your Bible - unless you're driving or hollowing out a decorative gourd, of course - and come hang out on the porch with Alli, Dr. Howard and me!

You're invited to hang out on Lisa Harper's back porch and enjoy conversations about all things Jesus, theological anthropology, biblical orthodoxy, Spanx, the merits of Tex-Mex and more!

We believe this podcast will help you dive deeper into God's word, understand that the gospel is great news for everyday life, not just when viewed in the light of eternity, and that God is for us, that He's always been in the process of redeeming our inherent value as imago Dei and restoring us into a vibrant, intimate relationship with Him.

And rest assured, this won't be a one-sided conversation because throughout the podcast, Lisa will be inviting friends, including some brilliant theologians and academics to join her in substantive but decidedly unstuffy segments. So come on, y'all grab some coffee or sweet tea and join us on the back porch!
