Episode 100 marks the first podcast before a live audience on November 3, 2013 at the Sunday Morning Bible Class at Trinity Lutheran Church – Freistadt, Mequon WI. For this special occasion Dr. Saleska describes the interpretive principle of “Christ in Every Word” and demonstrates the principle in Psalm 1.
The most important day in the worship life of the Old Testament community was “Yom Kippur” – the Day of Atonement. What made the day so important? – And where do we find Christ in in the Day of Atonement? (Here’s a hint – It isn’t hard to do!).
Dr. Saleska introduces the Book of Leviticus, and explains the purpose, practice and nature of the Old Testament sacrificial system.
Everything is in place for the Tabernacle to be constructed, and so it begins. With the worship center in place, the Children of Israel are about to set off for the promised land. What they don’t know is that it will be a 40 year trip! Dr. John Saleska brings the study of Exodus to a conclusion and prepares you for the entrance into the wilderness and the Book of Leviticus.
Dr. Saleska provides more background on Moses and his discussion with God on Mt. Sinai.
By the end of his time on the mountain with God, something strange happens to Moses’ countenance. In Exodus 34 He even begins to wear a veil. Why? Dr. Saleska explains what has happened to Moses in this episode of Christ in Every Word.
We have the most interesting conversation going on in Exodus 33 – Moses speaking with God, and God making promises regarding his “presence” with Moses. Listen as Dr. Saleska explains the nature of this presence, and how we also receive this presence today.
After all that Moses and the Children of Israel had been through, how could this possibly happen? And couldn’t Aaron have come up with a better excuse? Dr. Saleska will explain it all.
In this episode Dr. John Saleska provides the background regarding the “Golden Calf” incident. He raises the question, “How could these people so quickly abandon the God who had brought them out of Egypt?”
Why should the dress of the High Priest be of such importance? What does it say about Jesus Christ and his righteousness with which believers are clothed? And what are the Urim and the Thummin? Dr. Saleska will explain all in this podcast.
Just what is a “Mercy Seat” and why should I want one? This is just one of the issues discussed in this episode as Dr. John Saleska continues to share “Christ in Every Word” from the Book of Exodus.
Listen as Dr. Saleska explains the significance of each of the tabernacle furnishings; the altar, the lavar, the tabel of showbread, the candelabra, the altar of incense, and finally the ark of the covenant with its precious mercy seat.
God is about to give Moses very detailed instructions concerning the construction of the tabernacle, and the furnishing with which it will be supplied. But before God reveals the worship setting for ancient Israel, a few other matters must be handled. Dr. Saleska takes us through this preparation in Podcast 88.
Dr. John Saleska explains the significance of the great banquet at Sinai in Exodus 24 at which the covenant with Israel is confirmed.
