Picked back up on our historical narrative at AD 61-63, which was while Paul was in prison in Rome, when James was killed, John was exiled to Patmos, and several of the New Testament books were written. It is also the time when Barnabas was killed by the Jews on the island of Cyprus, and then Mark joined Paul in Rome.

Then and Now
Then and Now: Studying the Past to Shape our Future
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." [George Santayana]
We need to study the past so we will know how to shape our future.
This podcast will look at the history of first century Christianity so we can understand their perspective, make the proper application to us today, let it reshape our thinking, and empower us to guide the Church through its ongoing reform.
So my goal for each of these broadcasts is to do these two things: (1) Look at the historical fulfillments of Bible prophecy in the first century, and then (2) Apply what we learned from that study to build a better worldview that will equip us to go beyond and make a significant impact upon our world for Christ.
We want to take advantage of all the historical material available, to help us understand the Bible better, and then let that better understanding change our lives and equip us to make a positive difference in the world around us.
