John 17:1-5 Moses heard God’s voice coming from the burning bush, “Take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground” (Exodus 3:5). This verse comes to mind as we soak in John 17 over the next two Sundays. This passage allows us to eavesdrop into the personal, […]
John 15:12-17 Join us in John 15.
John 15:1-11 Is being a Christian kind of like yogurt? You know, you can get it with fruit or without fruit. We might have some lively discussions on that topic, each with his own opinion. But, clearly, what really matters is what Jesus said on that important issue. Join us as we listen to what […]
John 14:15-31 Most of us have probably shared in that awkward social experience of being “on the outside looking in.” At some point we’ve all probably had a friend group, a club, or a team that seemed to be so wonderful that we desperately wanted to be a part of it, yet we could never […]
John 14:1-14 It must have seemed as if dark clouds of confusion and uncertainty were looming over the small band of men gathered around Jesus in that upper room.

John 13:1-20 John 13 starts the second “book” in the gospel of John – what some have called the “book of glory.” This section will culminate in Jesus being crucified and then being gloriously resurrected, but it starts on quite a different note. In John 13:1-20, we’ll see Jesus humbling himself by taking a basin […]
John 12:20-36 Join us in John 12:20-36, where we’ll see how the glory of Jesus was seen most clearly in His death upon the cross.
John 12:12-19 The “Triumphal Entry” of Jesus into Jerusalem is probably one of the best know incidents in the life of Christ, maybe superseded only by his birth, death, and resurrection. People across Christendom love celebrating Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter when we recall and even re-enact that day when thousands upon thousands of […]
John 12:1-11 How much is Jesus worth to you? Wait. Don’t answer that question too quickly. Maybe we should think about that for awhile before answering. We’re resuming our journey in the Gospel of John, focusing on John 12:1-11. In this passage you’ll notice the stark contrast between how Mary valued Jesus and how Judas valued […]
