Covenant Jesus: God going for the heart

Jeremiah 31:31-34

We will recap the previous covenants that bring us to the new covenant with God, though Jesus.  We will see how God’s grace and forgiveness has always been extensive; but how now, though Jesus, God restores the heart.

The Great Pioneers

Matthew 17:1-13

On the Mount of Transfiguration, we find Moses and Elijah visiting with Jesus.  Each one of these great men passed on their spirit to their successors, who then went on and did even greater things. Moses - Joshua;  Elijah - Elisha;  Jesus - the Church.

Who is Jesus?

Mark 1:21-28

The words and deeds of Jesus carried an authority that left people simply amazed.  Jesus fully expects us to carry authority in his name.  We will wrestle with the question: do we live and walk in the authority of Jesus?

The Gospel According to Israel

Mark 1:14-20

What is the gospel?  Today we explore how the gospel cannot be limited to a statement; but rather, comes to us through story.  We hear the gospel through how the story of Jesus meets the yearning inherent in the story of Israel.

A New King in Town

Matthew 2:1-12

On this Epiphany Sunday, we see how God manifests his Son as the king who lifts up the lowly. To follow this king, is to dethrone other “kings”, including yourself, and to lift up the lowly.
