God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, sin, faith, forgiveness, Luther, and more are on the table as Mason Van Essen, Kiri Haugen, and Adam Guthmiller discuss each week's upcoming lectionary Bible passage with Luther House of Study's theologians to hear the context in and around Scripture before it's preached in church.

  • My Main Sermon Preparation

    Luther House of Study provides these invaluable resources each week. For years, I have used Luther House as my first source for preparing my sermons each week. The faculty is top notch. If you’re looking for a clear means for “handing over the goods” as the dear Dr. James Nestingen used to say, then this podcast is for you.

  • The Truth will make us free!

    It’s no big secret that the Bible isn’t always easy to understand. The people giving this podcast ask regular people questions for us laypersons. It’s so easy to get confused by the secular worldview. Scripture First removes that confusion. Thanks!!

  • Keep the questions coming Kiri!

    This podcast is how I start my week. I greatly enjoy the text study, and especially appreciate the questions that Kiri is willing to ask. They are typically the questions that all of us have, but are reluctant to voice. Keep it up, it is greatly appreciated. Thank you all for the Work the Lord does through you… we are truly blessed. more

  • Great Podcast

    I love this podcast and it’s one that I listen to every episode. I give 4/5 stars because I personally think it would flow better if the engine/foundation of the podcast wasn’t the students questions. I’d like to hear the teachers teach the text and then the students ask questions as they have them, rather than their questions drive the podcast.
