In 1979, Israeli archaeologist Gabriel Barkay peered into the semi-darkness of an ancient burial cave in the heart of Jerusalem. What he saw caused his heart to race with excitement. He had entered a long-lost world never intended to be seen by human eyes. Surrounding him were dozens of grinning skeletons – ancient Israelites, dead for thousands of years. And there was treasure, fabulous treasure, including two silver scrolls that carried an important message for us today.
This program is part of a series on the Beatitudes presented by Jesus in Matthew 5. In this episode, we will look at what Jesus meant when He taught, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of God.” The life of Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States of America, is a wonderful example of a life of service. “Poverty of spirit” is the first and foundation of all of the Beatitudes. When we live humbly before God, our lives will be filled with compassion and empathy for others.
Captain Matthew Flinders RN is credited with naming Australia. He is also the first man to have circumnavigated the continent with the help of Aboriginal leader Bungaree and the crew of HM sloop Investigator.

In January 2019, archaeologists excavating a site just behind London’s Euston Station discovered Flinders’ coffin and his remains. It was a ground-breaking discovery that offered scientists the opportunity to learn more about this extraordinary man and his life. This week we take a look at the life and times of this illustrious naval explorer, a man who will go down in history as one of the world’s greatest explorers.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a brain like Einstein? To be able to create complex theories and formulas that could change the world in some remarkable way? As important as IQ is, it turns out that IQ tests are notoriously bad at determining someone’s success or failure in life, and that scoring a high EQ – or emotional quotient – is a better indicator for success.

This program is part of a series on the Beatitudes of Jesus. In this episode, we will look at what Jesus meant when he taught, “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.” This teaching will be illustrated by the Charlie Brown episode in World War II, in which a German fighter ace spared a stricken American B-17 bomber and saved the lives of its crew. In the Bible, mercy is a central quality of the character of God, demonstrated through Jesus Christ, and a key character trait of his people. Mercy doesn’t come naturally to human beings; however, when we understand the mercy that God has shown to us, we can be more merciful toward others.
In March 2018, Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia collapsed onto a public bench in the English town of Salisbury. They were behaving erratically and weaving in and out of consciousness like someone who had taken an overdose of drugs. They were hospitalised and placed under deep sedation in a critical condition. Investigations revealed that Skripal was a Russian double agent who had been recruited to work for MI6, the British Secret Intelligence Service. Watch our program this week and learn more about this Russian spy’s story.
At 7pm on the 26th of May 1940, a short signal was transmitted from the dynamo room in Dover Castle. The message simply stated, “Operation Dynamo is to commence”. A few minutes later, a small flotilla of ships slipped out of Dover and began the treacherous but relatively short crossing over the English Channel, arriving at Dunkirk. When the sailors on board the vessels drew close to the shore, they were greeted with an unprecedented sight; thousands of soldiers, wearing their dark inky green uniforms, huddled on the beaches or milled in the water. All of them were gazing towards the horizon; all of them were waiting for hope. Join us this week as we take a look at the amazing story of the evacuation of Dunkirk.
Considered the pinnacle of human achievement at the time, the RMS Titanic departed from London for New York on April 12, 1912. What was meant to be a 7-day journey came to an abrupt and tragic end when the luxurious ship struck an iceberg, 640 km from land. Isidor and Ida Straus, the co-owners of the Macy’s department store, in New York, died on board the RMS Titanic when it sunk on the night of April 15, 1912. Their love still inspires us, and it gives us a glimpse of the highest form of love – God’s love.
This program is part of a series on the Beatitudes of Jesus. In this episode, we look at what Jesus meant when He said, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.” Do we hunger and thirst for righteousness today?

In a sense, the world seems to be getting smaller because we now know more about it. So it is with the brain.
