What does Matthew 20 mean?

Remind me to re-listen to this one (or perhaps the following week when Micah moved on to Part 2... But I think it was this one...)


GLIMPSE _ PT 1

Micah Witham

7/31/11

Description:Week 1 of a series called Glimpse where we explore parables of Jesus. This week we unearth the context of Matthew 20 and seek to gain a better understanding of what Jesus was actually saying.

So, what is "Dispensationalism"?

Over on one of my other blogs I have a page that jokingly but honestly lists the things I don't care about -- sports, cars, etc. Maybe I need a page like that here, because when a friend mentioned Dispensationalism in passing I realized that (despite brief study of it in a class one summer) it really wasn't "on my radar" as a topic of interest.

Maybe I can start with:
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dispensationalism

The interesting thing to me is that, unlike the topic of cars or sports, the topic of "God's nature and character" is one that we ought to pursue. Not to the exclusion of other ministries and not as a point of division, but I think one of the spiritual disciplines is a growing interest in and pursuit of God and what He has revealed to us.

So, maybe I should study up on Dispensationalism vs. Covenant Theology vs. whatever else is out there...?
