Bible Foundations Radio

Welcome To Bible Foundations Radio

This web site is intended to introduce an archive of a radio broadcast which began airing in 1996. Jerry Smyth taught an overview of the Bible using the method called Chronological Bible Teaching as shown in the “Firm Foundations” Sunday School materials. Beginning in Genesis, the lessons build, giving foundational information for clearly understanding the message of the Resurrection.

All 70 lessons of audio can be found on the PODCASTS link above or on the Sermon Audio network:

If your understanding of God’s revelation to man does not have a firm foundation, your faith may look something like the building pictured below when difficulties come your way. These Bible lessons are designed to help you establish Firm Foundations. These lessons build upon each other. This means that listening to the lessons out of sequence could lead to a gap in your understanding of God’s progressive revelation of Himself to mankind. This is not an exhaustive Bible study; the lessons pull together the major themes of the Bible to reveal the key concepts or foundation information.

Is your faith built upon the strong foundation?
Is your faith built upon the strong foundation?

The Story That Matters

Romans 15:20 Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation: 21 But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand.

1Corinthians 3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Hebrews 6:1 ¶ Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. (Note: This foundation must be laid at least once before it can be done “again”.)
