Jan 4 A Message Unchained
Visit the depths of the Mamertine Prison and the great monuments of ancient Rome with Pastor Finley as he explores one of the great mysteries of history. How did individuals with the least amount of political power or social status—those stuck in the dungeons or fleeing to the catacombs—prove stronger than all the might and power of the Caesars? The answer shows us how the world can be rebuilt through grace.

To all God's beloved in Rome, who are called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 1:7.

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from law, although the law and the prophets bear witness to it,
the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction; since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, they are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, Romans 3:21-24

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer every one. Colossians 4:6

Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in our hope of sharing the glory of God. Romans 5:1-2

Jan 11 Two Kinds of Power
Peter Waldo and Innocent III were two men who desperately wanted to reform the church. But while one created a movement that enlightened much of Europe with the gospel, the other carried the blood of thousands on his hands. Their two different pursuits of power present us with critical choices today. This program demonstrates the importance of what we have to share.

Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." Matthew 19:21.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age." Matthew 28:19-20

Preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching. 2 Timothy 4:2

See, I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant."  Jeremiah 1:10

For the grace of God has appeared for the salvation of all men, Titus 2:11

The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness, but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Jan 18 Which Picture of Jesus?
For centuries, the Shroud of Turin has provoked debate about what Jesus really looked like. Back in the Middle Ages, one group of people claimed to know. The Waldenses, as they were called, offered up a picture of who Jesus was as a person—a picture they had put together from a document most people did not have access to—a document the church kept locked away. This program reveals the secret behind their unforgettable picture of Jesus.

The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple; Psalm19:7

So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes by the preaching of Christ. Romans 10:17

Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures. James 1:18

May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiph'orus, for he often refreshed me; he was not ashamed of my chains, but when he arrived in Rome he searched for me eagerly and found me-- 2 Timothy 1:16-17

but whoever keeps his word, in him truly love for God is perfected. By this we may be sure that we are in him: 1 John 2:5

But he answered, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'" Matthew 4:4

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22

Jan 25 A Dance With Death
During the Middle Ages, many believers found themselves bound to a grim dance with death by a system of penance. They tried to outmaneuver the Grim Reaper by engaging in fasts and pilgrimages that could decrease their time in purgatory. However, another group living during the Dark Ages discovered a much better way to escape human mortality. Discover how the hope they found can enlighten the journey for each one of us.

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God-- not because of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9.

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

He who believes in the Son has eternal life; he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God rests upon him. John 3:36

And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 1 John 5:11
