Witnesses of Resurrection

It seemed as though the story of Jesus had finished in tragedy. Betrayed, falsely found guilty, executed on a cross, pronounced dead, buried, hidden behind a stone, and guarded by experienced soldiers… it seemed a long way from the promise of a Messiah. But as Sunday dawned, the most faithful of Jesus’ followers were about to find out that the story had just begun! Pastor Joe helps us witness the resurrection of Jesus.

The Crucifixion

Over the last few weeks we have seen the events around Jesus’ life hurtling Him towards this moment; the moment He is finally crucified. Pastoral Intern Karl Scott helps us navigate the final moments of Jesus’ life and find a stunning and unmissable truth.

Jesus on Trial

Left on His own, Jesus is now thrust on trial before the ruling authorities and examined by the Roman Governor. But as He stands innocent, it will be everyone else whose guilt is truly revealed. Pastor Ben unpacks the injustice of Jesus’ trial.

Down to One

As Jesus walks His disciples through the last few hours they would spend together, He drops a hard word on them. A word they are not prepared to accept. Pastor Joe helps us see a shocking truth about the end of Jesus’ ministry, but a truth that has the power we need to be His followers today.

Extravagant Love

As the last moments of Jesus’ life approaches, He prepares to share one last meal with His disciples. Around this meal two of Jesus’ followers reveal very different attitudes towards Him. Pastor Ben helps us see this difference and know what it means to treasure Jesus with extravagant love.

The End is Near (Part 2)

As Jesus continues to warn His disciples about the great and terrible day of judgment, He uses three vivid images to cement the significance of the coming judgment and inform them how to live as they waited. Pastor Joe helps us feel the weight of what this means for us practically.

The End is Near (Part1)

Many Christians can easily become obsessed with the end times, looking into the scriptures, world events, and the way the world is going to try to crack the code as the when Jesus might return. But this is not where our focus should be. In an epic conversation with His disciples, Jesus outlines how the end will come about. Pastor Joe unpacks this conversation to discover how Jesus would have us live as we await His return.

The False LEaders

Opposition to Jesus from the Pharisees and other religious leaders was starting to rise as He continued to refute their petty attempts to trap Him. But now Jesus turns His attention back on them. In a powerful and punchy teaching session, Jesus pronounces seven woes on the Pharisees. David Evans helps us see the Pharisees’ problems and how we struggle with them as well.

Opposition Rises

As Jesus continues his ministry in the city of Jerusalem, he is confronted by people who are intent on bringing down his ministry. They try to do this by posing three tricky questions for Jesus to decipher. Jesus response is saturated with wisdom and insight defuses their malicious intentions.

The Banquet

The good news about Jesus is a message that speaks of God’s incredible generosity where he invites people from far and wide to partake in his Kingdom. But this does not mean that everyone responds to his invitation. In this passage, Jesus shares a parable which speaks of God’s incredible, indiscriminate grace for those who accept God’s invitation and the result for those who choose to ignore it.
