Hidden Themes in the Bible with Dr. Chip Bennett

Have you ever had an “ah-ha” moment reading a Bible passage that you’ve read many times before? Have you ever noticed a pattern or a theme in the Bible that you didn’t see until someone showed it to you? Is the Bible a plain, one-dimensional text or a much richer revelation— a tapestry woven together by a Divine Mind? Dr. Chip Bennett, Pastor of Grace Community Church in Sarasota, Florida, joins Frank to reveal some of the amazing hidden themes of the Bible.  We say “hidden” because most people today don’t know about them.  But the early church fathers, taking cues from Jesus and Paul, discovered that the scriptures are an integrated tapestry that has common themes spread throughout.   Chip and Frank discuss themes related to the third day, the Bride, the Serpent, the calming of the sea, and others.  Not only will you look at the Bible differently, but you’ll also see another reason why the Bible— written by about 40 authors over 1,500 years— must have a Divine Mind behind it.
