John Whitcomb: November 4, 2019

Special guest teacher Dr. Andy Woods returns to “Encounter God’s Truth” this week to conclude his study of “The Reformers and Bible Prophecy.” Dr. Woods will explain how God used the Reformers to reclaim the tools that ultimately brought greater clarity and a more accurate understanding of Bible prophecy than even they themselves had in their own lifetimes. This began with the Reformers first restoring some major areas of Biblical understanding. Host Wayne Shepherd also asks Dr. Woods to elaborate on the single most important rediscovery that the Reformers made—which others could use to restore Biblical teaching in the centuries that followed. God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! The Reformers returned this line of thinking to the church, starting with the launch of the Reformation on October 31, 1517, and we continue to uphold this conviction on this weekly Bible-teaching outreach of Whitcomb Ministries. Thanks for joining us on this special Reformation edition of our program!
