New Life at the Pool - Healing followed by some radical claims

Sun, 11/17/2019 - 11:00
Gospel of John Part 9  (John 5) How might you be like the man at the pool? Most of those who have studied this chapter see it as disorganized and repetetive, but in fact there is a beautiful logic to Jesus’ reasoning.

A Challenging Story about the Journey of Faith

Sun, 11/10/2019 - 11:00
Gospel of John Part 8  (John 4:43–54) Even if you are a Christian, there are some deep challenges in this story. Jesus wants to keep moving you along the journey until you really know who he is, and act accordingly.

The Woman at the Well - Jesus Sees your Deepest Need

Sun, 11/03/2019 - 11:00
Gospel of John Part 7  (John 4:1–42) There’s a lot more to this story than meets the eye, from why she misunderstood Jesus, to connections with several other well-encounters in the Bible, and finally all the talk about food at the end being a clue to what really satisfies us.

God’s Love for Humanity

Sun, 10/20/2019 - 12:00
Gospel of John Part 6  (John 3:16–36) John 3:16 is probably the best known verse in the Bible, but it has a hidden depth and richness that makes it (and the rest of the passage) well worth studying.

Born from Above

Sun, 10/13/2019 - 12:00
Gospel of John Part 5  (John 3:1–15) Jesus challenged Nicodemus to think outside his religious box. In a similar way he challenges us, not to live ordinary lives limited by the expectations of this world, but to embrace the amazing reality of the age to come, now in the present.

Anger and Love in the Temple

Sun, 10/06/2019 - 12:00
Gospel of John Part 4  (John 2:12–25) What exactly made Jesus so angry? Why did he gave such a strange answer to the Pharisees? When we can truly resonate with Jesus’ anger and feel his love, we can get what this story is all about.

A Different Take on turning Water into Wine

Sun, 09/29/2019 - 12:00
Gospel of John Part 3  (John 2:1–11) Why does Jesus answer Mary in such an odd way? It is almost rude and seems very out of character. Yet it turns out that this answer is what unlocks the challenge to us in the story.

Audio problem fixed: Why the very first believers were so drawn to Jesus

Tue, 09/17/2019 - 12:00
Gospel of John Part 2  (John 1:19–51) Before Jesus even started doing miracles, John is very interested in the impact he had on people. Some people didn’t care, but others were drawn to him powerfully. We can engage with Jesus today like those those first followers did.

The extraordinary poem hidden in the first 18 verses of John

Sun, 09/08/2019 - 12:00
Gospel of John Part 1  (John 1:1–18) -Be impacted by the power and the beauty of this painting of Jesus at the beginning of John. My Jesus, God from all eternity, came down to earth as a human so that I might have new life.

The Temple, from Eden to Revelation

Sun, 09/01/2019 - 12:00
(Rev 21:1–22:5)
  • There are amazing connections between Eden, the Temple, Jesus’ teaching, and the book of Revelation.
  • Our understanding of parts of the Bible will come into sharper focus if we get these themes and connections.
  • Grasping the power of the temple imagery throughout the Bible will impact our own lives and mission.

A Psalm that will change your life

Sun, 08/25/2019 - 12:00
(Psalm 90) Psalm 90 starts out as one of the most depressing scriptures: “You live 70 yrs and die. If you live to 80 it will just be pain, and so on…” But by an extraordinary twist, which you need the handout to really see, everything is turned on its head. Make sure you view the handout here:

The End of the World and the Age to Come

Sun, 08/04/2019 - 12:00
Foundations of our Faith Part 8 (Matthew 24 25) We answer 12 common questions about the events leading up to Christ’s return, the day of judgement, and the age to come, with a focus on Matthew 24 25. We then consider what the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins really means, and how it challenges us.

Making an Effort to Rest

Sun, 07/28/2019 - 12:00
(Hebrews 3 4) It sounds like a contradiction when we are told: “Let us therefore make every effort to enter that rest” (Heb 4:11). But actually it is not, it is one of the keys to a fruitful, productive and stress-free life.

Jesus’ Design for the Christian Life

Sun, 07/21/2019 - 12:00
Foundations of our Faith Part 7 (John 17:14–26) In his last words to his disciples before he died, Jesus laid out for them a plan. In a few words he summarized what a Christian life should look like from beginning to end. Here, perhaps more than anywhere else in Scripture, we have a concise vision for our life’s goals and destiny.
