What is the Doctrine of the Hypostatic Union of Christ? Is this something vital for all Christians to understand, or is it only important for Pastors and Seminary students?

Did you know that the Christians throughout church history have fought for, and even died for, the clarity and truth of this most important doctrine? In fact, it has been correctly said that this doctrine has sailed down to us on a sea of blood; the blood of faithful martyrs who truly understood the vital importance for ALL Christians to understand the Doctrine of the Hypostatic Union of Christ!!

A new novel out is called “The Shroud Conspiracy” by John Heubusch. The Shroud of Turin is THE most studied ancient religious artifact in the history of the world. Several of the experiments conducted on the Shroud involve technologies that have only been invented in the last 2 generations or so. Virtually all the experiments point to its authenticity as the burial cloth of Jesus Christ, except the 1988 carbon dating, which pointed to a date in the Middle Ages. Before the announcements were made from the carbon dating, Dr. Alan Whanger, now retired professor from Duke Medical School, and ardent scientist studying the Shroud, warned that the results were going to turn out bad because they had a sample (divided into 3) from a rewoven part of the Shroud. Dr. Alan Whanger joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the Shroud of Turin. www.shroudcouncil.org

Here is a controversial thesis; and by my own admission, I am not a qualified scholar to rightly judge whether it is accurate or not. However, in the interest of letting this idea get a fair hearing, I decided to proceed with this interview. Robert Bowie Johnson is a graduate of West Point, and through his extensive research on ancient Greece, he is convinced that the pantheon of gods from ancient Greece are actually corrupted versions of biblical narratives. So that Zeus is patterned after Adam, Hera after Eve, Hephaistos after Cain, Ares after Seth, Nereus after Noah, Herakles after Nimrod, Athena after Naamah, etc. Johnson has written a few books on this subject that are beautifully illustrated, including “Genesis Characters and Events in Ancient Greek Art.” It is fascinating to see undeniably clear images in Greek art of a woman encountering the ancient serpent. Robert Bowie Johnson joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to explain the thesis of his book. www.solvinglight.com

Todd Akin is no stranger to controversy. He’s a former US Congressman from Missouri (St. Louis area), who ran for the senate in 2012 and made a terrible verbal blooper on a hostile television program on the subject of abortion. This caused his career to effectively end. He has written a book, telling his side of the story: “Firing Back: Taking on the Party Bosses and Media Elite to Protect Our Faith and Freedom.” Todd Akin joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the double standard of the media. Someone like Joe Biden could commit a verbal gaffe a few times a year and slide right by, but not a conservative. Note: Jerry Newcombe first interviewed Todd Akin in his home in 1992, when he was a state representative for the Show Me state. (People can order his book at todd@akin.org)
