Why Did Jesus Leave? (HC:LD18a)

  A Farewell Address in the Upper Room On the night before Jesus went to the cross, He had a lot of things to say to His disciples in the Upper Room. Matthew, Mark and Luke give some of the story like what Jesus said and did, but it is the Gospel of John, written 30 years later, that fills […]

EPIC (for Palm Sunday)

  Chapter 1: The Beginning “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) This is the start of our story. Notice how I said that it’s the start of our story. Not the beginning of The Whole story. Just our part. God is eternal, existing before there was either heaven or earth. So God created the […]

Their agent and their publicist work hard to craft a certain public image for them, and there […]

Introduction to The Apostles Creed (HC:LD7)

Audio: Text: Please open up to Romans 10:9-17 and let’s read it together, and then I have a short video to show you: “…because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and […]

The Nature of Christ (HD:LD6)

Audio: Text: I heard an ad on the radio for the Canadian Legion that started with something like, “Think of all the things you enjoy in life, like summer fun, going out with your family, kissing your kids goodnight. We can take these things for granted because a veteran didn’t. They fought so we could have the freedoms we enjoy […]

A Mighty Mediator (HC: LD5)

Audio: Text: The more I study the Heidelberg Catechism, the more I like it. It appeals to me on so many levels – it’s beautifully written, theologically rich and complex, but is also laid out in such a logical way that it’s very readable and straightforward to follow. I wish that I had been able to go through this, or […]
