Ravi Zacharias, a world-reknowned Christian apologist, philosopher, and evangelist, discusses courtship and marriage. Students in early high school benefit from this counsel as they approach decisions about dating and long-lasting relationships.
This podcast goes very well with the students' reading of The Taming of the Shrew. It is a Christian response to the issue of choosing a marriage partner. Students can contrast this message with the Shrew's response, and our own culture's evaluation of the marriage process.
Part I: Marriage should last a lifetime – but why doesn’t it these days? What does it take to make a relationship stand the test of time? Join us for the answers as we look at the story of Isaac and Rebekah, with author and apologist, Ravi Zacharias.
Part II: In Part I, Ravi shared how Abraham sent Eliezer to seek out a wife for his son Isaac, and how God brought Eliezer to a beautiful and kind young woman by the name of In Part II, we hear some thoughts about selecting a mate that might seem strange to Western culture – and might even make you uncomfortable - but they’re true just the same.
Part III: When you look for qualities in a spouse – what strikes you as being most important? Intelligence? Beauty? Character? Ravi Zacharias has been presenting a message about the union of two remarkable people from the Old Testament – Isaac and Rebekah. The attribute that Ravi looks at today is a simple one that might not even come to mind when we look for a mate – but we certainly notice when it’s not there!
Part IV: Everywhere we turn in our society, we are bombarded by sensuality. In the midst of this overwhelming saturation, how can we possibly keep ourselves pure? How can we guard against falling into temptation? In Part IV, Ravi offers good wisdom on how to deal with those pressures, and how we can stay pure in an impure world.
Part V: Ravi Zacharias has been presenting a message taken from the Biblical account of Isaac and Rebekah, and showed how God’s hand orchestrated their relationship. As we’ve learned, God wants us to get to know HIM first, to have a relationship with Him, before we find our mate.
