Our conversations at Bible Jazz are always improvised and sometimes unusual, just like jazz.

Is it possible to be redeemed? (feat. Rev. Dr. Chap Clark)

Question 19 • February 16, 2021 • Chap Clark, Rob Clark, Mike Moffitt

Rev. Dr. Chap Clark joins us to venture through listener emails and question 19: Is there any way to escape God's punishment? What assumptions lie behind this question, and is it the right question to ask? What does it imply about God, and how does Jesus life, death, and resurrection not only help answer it, but also help reframe the question itself?

What is a Dollar Tree...I mean, "Idolatry"?

Question 17 • February 2, 2021 • Amanda Wood, Mike Moffitt

The idea of an "idol" might conjure images of Indiana Jones with a little gold statue, or an '80s rock star, or a popular American TV talent show. But what are idols in the Bible? And are they a threat to the very things they promise to provide?

What is Sin? (feat. Rev. Dr. Jim Mead!)

Question 16 • January 25, 2021 • Jim Mead, Mike Moffitt

Sin -- is it about breaking rules? Is it personal, communal, or both? What does it tell us about ourselves and the character of God?

Since no one can keep the law, what is its purpose?

Question 15 • January 19, 2021 • Mike Moffitt, Aaron Stewart

Did God create us unable to keep his law?

Question 14 • January 11, 2021 • Mike Moffitt, Rob Clark

"You be nice!" (George Costanza from the show, "Seinfeld") But can we? If we're unable to follow God's law, were we created that way? Our answer has deep implications for how we understand the role of our behavior.

A Word from Mike - Spirit of God

What does God require in the sixth, seventh, and eighth commandments?

Question 11 • November 30, 2020 • Mike Moffitt, Randi Downs, Billy Repenning

Billy helps us dive into the complexities of three commandments that otherwise look pretty simple: don't murder, don't commit adultery, don't steal. But are they?
