Episode 88 | This Is the New Testament | Released August 9, 2021 | Special guest: Jess Thompson

For the fourth week of This Is the New Testament, our hosts talk with friend, author, and conference speaker, Jess Thompson. Surveying the books of 2 Timothy through James, the three discuss the joy of peach crumble, the many ways we can come alongside other women, and how our ultimate goal is not just knowing the Bible but knowing Christ through the Bible. Join Raechel and Amanda as they rejoice in the repeating patterns of God’s love and kindness in our lives as we seek to live for Him.
