The Best Belated Christmas Gift Ever
During today's conversation on Back Porch Theology we're going to dive into the joy-saturated stories of Anna and Simeon, two geriatric saints who never gave up hope that they'd meet the Messiah before they met their Maker. And we're going to compare and contrast the solo Simeon warbled after meeting 7-week-old baby Jesus with Mary's Magnificat - the gorgeous praise chorus she sang after Gabriel gave her the shock of a lifetime by proclaiming that although she hadn't graduated from high school yet, Yaweh had chosen her to carry the Christ! You're gonna be so stoked when you find out how those two ancient songs reveal the supernaturally comforting Trinitarian-nature of that first Advent! This episode might just help banish your post-Christmas blues better than chips and queso, y'all - which is a huge endorsement coming from me. So please grab a cup of coffee and your Bible - unless you're driving or secretly dragging your Christmas tree to some vacationing neighbor's backyard burn pile, of course - and come hang out on the porch with Alli, Dr. Howard and me!

Back Porch Theology Goes Home-Christian Tour to Israel-March 21-31, 2023

Lisa Harper's Back Porch Theology

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!


My favorite!!

I learn so much from this podcast! I love Lisa Harper and the way she explains Scripture. I hope many people listen in and Holy Spirit would burn that fire of reading the Word and getting to know God in a deeper way! ️

Thank you

I look forward to your podcast every week. I feel like you and Ally and Dr Howard are my friends, even though I'll probably never meet you. You have challenged me and brought new life into the scripture for me. You all can make me laugh and cry in the same episode. I also have the same desires to be all that God has created me to be and to fall more deeply in love with Him as I go about my days.Blessings to you all, Yvonne from Lancaster, Pa
