Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph are given center stage through the majority of the book of Genesis. But why? And why is it Christians are told to regard them as their own spiritual descendants? This survey will help us understand these heroes of the faith who "died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth." (Heb. 11:13, ESV)
Dr. David G. Barker
Though many reject Jesus as Lord, still they regard him as a great teacher. Was he? One of Jesus' main teaching tools was the parable, did that tool reveal his lordship or veil it? Are the parables really the quaint stories we remember from children's Bible storybooks? What was the context of the most cutting or perplexing parables? Join us on Sunday Evenings at 5:30 pm as we sing acapella, structure our worship with a psalm, pray for one another, and listen to a sermon. Our spring series is on how the parables from Matthew, Mark, and Luke powerfully preach the Lordship of Christ and the call of the Christian.
Pastor Nicholas Hathaway
Mark's Gospel is the first, the shortest, and the most vivid of the four Gospels. Written in Rome to encourage Gentile Christians during a time of severe persecution, Mark's fast-moving narrative of good news traces Jesus' three-year ministry from His baptism to His death and resurrection. The central theme of Mark's Gospel is "Who is Jesus?".
Who hasn't been hurt by the words of another? Who hasn't regretted something they said? who hasn't had to referee an argument? Who hasn't wanted to talk seriously with a loved one, yet there seems to be no time? Recognizing that words are powerful, Paul Tripp shows us how the gospel transforms the way we communicate. Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Word, is the only hope for our words.
