Storytellers have fantasized for centuries about time travel—the chance to go back and alter the course of history. To right wrongs. To enlighten the misled. So is there any way to change the past? Today’s guest has an intriguing answer—join him for Home School Heartbeat with host Mike Smith.

Mike Smith:
Dr. James Stobaugh has been with us this week to discuss how we study history. Jim, as we wrap up the week, would you talk about how Christianity impacts our understanding of history?

James Stobaugh:
Well, after everything is said and done, historians are only studying the past. Theories about the past come and go. Historians will debate about history, but they could never change history. Only God can change history. When we are reborn in Christ, our present, our future, and yes, even our past, is changed. History is literally rewritten—by the power of the Holy Spirit, we are new creations. And my prayer for all of your listeners is that you know this God who can change history, even our history, no matter what it is, what it will be, is in His hands, and in your future, can be His future for you.

Mike:
There is tremendous hope for us in understanding how God is able to redeem history through the work of Jesus Christ. Jim, thank you for bringing this message to our listeners today! Until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
