Lesser Known Personalities of the Bible

Finding Big Truth In Small Stories

6 Parts | By:

Most people have heard of the disciples. Many of us are familiar with stories of Moses, David and certainly Jesus. But what about those people in the background of Scripture?

In this series, Ed Young looks at some seemingly insignificant characters and shows us their significance. He brings them from the background of the Bible to the foreground of our minds. Because although they don’t receive a lot of ink in the Bible, these unknown personalities have a lot to teach us about the way God wants us to live.

Pace Hartfield’s message is not included on the CD or DVD.

    Reaping What You Sew

    The Bible is peppered with stories of lesser known people. But those stories are much more than filler text. They are full of lessons for us today. In this message, Ed Young looks at a character named Adoni-Bezek. And as Ed unveils this story found in Judges, we see that what we do through our words and actions, good or bad, often determines what we experience in our lives.

    OMLWSWD?

    Oh My Lord What Shall We Do?

    The servant stood on the wall and surveyed the landscape. Everywhere he turned, the enemy was bearing down. In his eyes, defeat was imminent. How often do we find ourselves in that situation? When we take a panoramic view of our surroundings, we assume the only thing that awaits us is destruction. Yet, as we find out in this message by Ed Young, when we send the same message of Elisha's servant, God will give us the clarity and vision to see his strength. And he will help us overcome any situation we face.

    Whoever, Whenever

    Speaker John Cross Explains Your Potential Despite Your Past

    Throughout Scripture, we encounter stories of men and women used by God to do incredible things. Some of the stories are familiar, some are relatively unknown. But no matter what story we read in the pages of the Bible or who we encounter, one thing is true. God is the author of it all. In this message by guest speaker John Cross, we once again discover that God is the ultimate author. And we see that he can and will equip whoever, whenever - even those people of questionable backgrounds and reputations - to deliver his message of hope and possibility to the world.

    Bad Hair Day

    How Pride Destroyed Absalom

    Pride is one of the most sinister forces we can face. It can take hold of our lives, lead us down a dangerous path and entangle us in a snare of lies and deception. And in the life of Absalom, David's son, pride ultimately led to his destruction. But there's a way to avoid that fate in our own lives. And as Ed Young shows us in this message, if we can keep our ego in check we will avoid the trap. Instead, we'll continue heading down the path God has for us. And we'll experience the most out of life.

    Pour it Out

    Speaker Pace Hartfield Reminds Us That We Are Called To Pour Out Love

    Sprinkled throughout the pages of Scripture are stories of men and women who demonstrate amazing faith. Yet, many of these stories go unnoticed. And many of the lessons go unlearned. But in this message by guest speaker Pace Hartfield, we take a look at one of the most powerful stories of faith by one of the most unknown and unrecognizable characters in the New Testament. And we see through a woman who sat at Jesus' feet that faith poured out produces an excess of love that can change everything.
