    "Hold fast to the traditions you were taught..." 2 Thessalonians 2:15 - Marcus Grodi and Mike Peters

    In this episode, Marcus Grodi and former Evangelical campus minister Mike Peters look at 2 Thessalonians 2:15, where St. Paul admonishes his readers to stay true to the things he has told them about the Gospel. Mike shares how the Bible translations he used in his campus ministry rendered that verse, and how understanding the original intent of Paul's writing helped him better understand the difference between the kind of tradition condemned by St. Paul, and the kind of tradition to which St. Paul urged Christians to hold fast.

    "I never knew you..." Matthew 7:21-23 - Marcus Grodi and Dr. Leroy Huizenga

    Marcus Grodi welcomes Dr. Leroy Huizenga from the University of Mary to the program, as they take a look at Matthew 7:21-23 and Jesus' teaching about true and false disciples. They dig into the way the Sermon on the Mount is organized, and unpack the more apocalyptic sayings of Our Lord that characterize the final section of this lengthy teaching. What does it mean when Jesus tells his audience, in haunting fashion, that at the end of time, some will hear him say, "I never knew you?"

    We interrupt this program... Mark 5:21-43 - Marcus Grodi

    Recently, the Gospel reading for Mass included an important, unanticipated “interruption” in the life of Christ — actually a Russian nesting doll-like series of interruptions. Twice the Apostle John exclaimed that there were many more signs and wonders that Jesus did than could be contained in his or any of the Gospels. So why was it that Matthew, Mark, and Luke all felt that this interruption within an interruption within an interruption was so important they each included it in their short accounts of Jesus’ life?

    2 Corinthians 7:1 and the Fear of God - Marcus Grodi and Paul Thigpen

    In this episode, Marcus Grodi and Dr. Paul Thigpen discuss the concept of the Fear of God, a gift of the Holy Spirit, in the context of the clerical abuse scandals in the Church. How do we maintain a reverence and awe of the Lord that compels us to act in love and fidelity when so many influences in our lives lead us to laziness and apathy? They also look at the letter of St. Clement of Rome to the Corinthians, which was written only a short time later, to better understand how Church leaders addressed a particular crisis in a particular community.

    With Jesus or Against Him? Luke 9:50 and 11:23 - Jim Anderson

    Jim Anderson, CHNetwork's manager of clergy converts to Catholicism, joins Marcus Grodi to discuss a perplexing set of teachings from Jesus. In Luke 9:50, Jesus says "he that is not against you is for you," but then in Luke 11:23, Jesus says "he who is not with me is against me."  So which is it?  Are those outside the Church to be considered adversaries, or allies, or does it all depend on the context? Jim and Marcus look at the situations Jesus is referring to in these two passages, and try to get at what Our Lord is trying to teach us.
