The Treasure and the Pearl (161)

May 30, 2023

In Episode 161, we revisit a special sermon I preached a few weeks ago. Prepare to dive into divine wisdom as we bring the profound parables of the hidden treasure and the Pearl of Great Price to life, told by none other than Jesus himself.

We also shed light on the surprising and beautiful facets of John's identity, a revelation that promises to add another layer of understanding to our religious discourse. Let us delve into the surprising yet wonderful aspects of John's identity - a revelation you won't want to miss.

Tune in now, and let’s go bigger, better, and deeper!
