With a desire to see a new generation love the Word of God and the God of the Word, the Into Your Bible podcast with Nate Bramsen was launched in May of 2022. Following verse-by-verse exposition, this Bible study program features a new episode every other Monday. Currently, the Book of Exodus is being studied. It is available in video format on YouTube (@intoyourbible) or through audio podcast format on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, etc. Though this podcast was initially launched to inspire the younger generation to dive into God’s Word, it is appropriate for every disciple of Christ—whether individually or in small groups, and Sunday school classes.
Living in an age where many want truth to be relative stating “that’s my truth” or “that’s your truth,” the Word of God declares a drastically different message. John 17:17 declares “Your Word is Truth”—truth that “will set you free” (John 8:32).
Consequently, this podcast has three aims for every episode. First, our primary aim is to STICK TO THE SCRIPTURES. This is not to say we do not use illustrations, quotes, and insights from others, but in the end, this is a Bible study where we want to ask the question, “What does the text say?” and “How does it fit into the big picture of Scripture?” Thus, we want to understand the passage in the context of the biblical language, geography, and culture.
Second, our desire is to SEE THE SAVIOR. The Greeks said to Philip, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus!” (John 12:21). This too, is our longing. When Jesus walked alongside the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, the Word says that “beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself” (Luke 24:27). Again, in John 5:39-40, Jesus told a group of Jews, “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.” In every podcast of Into Your Bible, it is of utmost priority to see the beauties of our Savior in the passage.
Finally, there is a need to SUBMIT TO THE SPIRIT. Into Your Bible is not about a mere intellectual pursuit, but about true intimacy with the Lord. In each podcast, the question is asked, “How should we respond to the Word?” This is not primarily about knowing more about God, though we hope that happens. Rather, this is about knowing God. The Lord Jesus said in John 14:21, “Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”
May this podcast be a conduit of blessing to saints who love the Lord Jesus and the vehicle to introduce the lost to the beauty of our Savior. As we close every podcast, our prayer is that in this ministry, a new generation will come to love the Word of God and the God of the Word.
