SORT BY Relevancy
In this episode of Ask the Theologian, Dr. Randy White will explain the Hanukkah celebration that has been taking place among Jews for over 2,100 years. Scripture tells us that Jesus went to Jerusalem at the Hanukkah celebration. Why do Jews celebrate? What are they celebrating? Can Christians join in the celebration? In addition to this, we will take your calls and questions.
In this episode of Ask the Theologian, Paul Scharf fills in for Dr. Randy White, and will take your calls on Christmas prophecies, activities and celebrations... and all things Christmas!
Paul Scharf is editor in chief of Dispensational Publisihing House, Inc. As a basis for our discussion today, we will consider some recent topics that have been covered in our blog at DispensationalPublishing.com. Specifically, Scharf will look at the early chapters of Isaiah and the great prophecies that he offered regarding the coming of our Savior and Messiah—Christ Jesus the Lord.
We pray that you will have a very meaningful and memorable Christmas season—and we trust that today's program will enhance its significance for you. We would love to add your comments and questions on these subjects to our program this week.

Today's Ask the Theologian covers two topics -
Since Exodus 24:9-11 talks about seeing God, how can it say they saw God since no one has ever seen Him?
John the Baptist was asked if he was Elijah and he denied it (John 1:21), yet in Matthew 17:11-13, Jesus says that Elijah has already come and that he was John the Baptist. How do these go together?
Reflections of 25 Years
Recently Dr. Randy White experienced a milestone when he resigned from his pastorate at the First Baptist Church of Katy, Tex., where he had served since 2003, to pursue new ministry opportunities that he will be sharing much more about in the near future.
He and his wife Shelley have moved to Taos, N.M., where Dr. White is now pastoring the First Baptist Church there, and he also continues to expand his outreach through Randy White Ministries.
As he looks back on 12 years in Katy and 25 years of pastoral ministry, Dr. White has been writing a series of articles sharing some of the lessons he has learned and insights he has gained during the past quarter-century.
On today’s edition of Ask the Theologian, Dr. White will walk the listeners through some of the most important of these reflections. Here is a list of the topics we will cover:
Sometimes we need to re-learn the things we thought we knew in our youth.
There is a difference between growing a crowd and growing a church.
Believe it or not, churches can become too big.
There are actually advantages to participating in a smaller church.
We can become so busy in ministry that we sometimes begin to neglect the Bible itself.
It is important that a pastor focus on preaching—as opposed to leading.
The pastor’s title matters.
The more you get to know about a church, the more you know that it has problems.
Most church problems spring from very simple issues.
Boring is not always bad, but truth is ultimate.
Boredom is not the sin, but disregarding boring truth is the sin.
In that light, we have a new series on dispensationalism beginning on Wednesday night.
Each Tuesday at 4:00PM Central Dr. Randy White answers your theological questions.

Does Romans 11 teach us that it is possible to fall away from our salvation or does it explain the role of Israel in the process of bringing salvation to the Gentiles?
What language did Jesus speak during his time on earth?
Comments on God's providence.
Most Christians today view Paul the Apostle as a new Apostle, but in the same class as the 12 appointed by Jesus in His earthly ministry. In this broadcast, Dr. Randy White shares how this is an incorrect view has brought incorrect and almost disastrous doctrinal consequences.
Today is Open Line Tuesday! Start the new year with a theological, doctrinal, or worldview question.
Dr. Randy White has been a pastor for 25 years, teaches many online Bible studies, and is the founder and CEO of Dispensational Publishing House, Inc.
Your question may be about a particular passage of Scripture, an interpretation of Scripture, a doctrinal belief, a church practice, or anything related to Christianity.
Yesterday was "Holocaust Remembrance Day" or Yom HaShoah. It is a day in which Israeli citizens literally halt everything they are doing so that they will never forget the events of the Nazi-led Holocaust. TODAY on our live internet radio program, you will have the opportunity to hear me interview Ira B. Wise, whose parents had an amazing story of survival, while his grandparents and all his aunts and uncles died in the Holocaust.
