Our friend Mark Scandrette came to town for the weekend, and did an interview with us as a part of our Sunday gathering. This week’s podcast is made up of a short sermon by Kevin, followed by the interview with Mark, and concludes with a targum by Paige Louter, and a song lead by Aaron Craig.
Interview with Mark starts 24 minutes in.
See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead.
And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by cancelling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.
Targum written and read by Paige Louter
