Welcome to episode 99 of The Grace Cafe Podcast. This episode is centered around the question, “Did the Father Pour His Wrath on Jesus at the Cross and abandon Him there?” Our friends Greg and Kim join us via Zoom and asked us this question. During our conversation, a couple other questions arose related to it: “Did Jesus descend into hell when he died?” and “What is baptism for the dead?”

062 | Identity Theft: Forgetting Who We Are In Jesus

Welcome to episode 62 of the Grace Cafe Podcast. Let’s talk about identity theft. Not the kind we hear about in the media where our credit cards and personal information get stolen, but another kind of identity theft. Let’s talk about who we are in Jesus and what happens when someone (or even ourselves) steals that from us. Let’s talk about what happens when we forget our identity in Jesus and all that is ours in him and we look instead to our own failed performance and start to believe that’s what define us.

We also spend a few minutes in Hebrews chapter 6 to remind ourselves of the certainty of the gospel and how our hope is anchored in God himself who cannot lie.
