John: Pride & Prejudice

John 7:40-52 There’s a difference between arrogance and confidence. God wants to destroy the one and build the other in its place. This Sunday, we’ll be looking together at John 7:40-8:12, where we’ll see Christ squashing the arrogance of the Jewish leaders of His day, most of whom people would never have dared to confront. And […]

Easter 2018: The Firstfruits

1 Corinthians 15:20 We may be tempted to think that the Easter story of Christ’s death and resurrection is a historical narrative with little to do with us.

John, whose gospel we’ve been working through in recent months, seems to have intentionally included stories in his record of Christ’s life that were not […]
