A Lamenting King

Luke 19:28-44

In this passage we encounter a publicly lamenting Jesus. When we really consider the scene, it makes us uncomfortable. Isn't an important public (even royal!) figure supposed to "maintain his composure"? To "keep it together"? But what if Jesus and other ancient Hebrew people have some important to teach us about what it means to be human? Something that we as modern people might be missing out on?

A Poor Jesus

Matthew 8:18-22

Never before in history has the modern church been more out of touch with the simple fact that Jesus was a poor man. We live as the most privileged people in the most privileged country in the history of the world. So what do we do with that? And what can the poverty of Jesus teach us? Listen in as we explore this and more.


The Hunger of Jesus

Matthew 4:1-11

As we begin both the Lenten season and a new sermon series called "The Humanity of Jesus," we encounter a familiar but strange passage about Jesus's meeting with the devil in the wilderness. As we examine the ways in which Jesus operates, we discover some important fundamental realities about our humanity, and an important way we miss out on living fully as humans. Listen in to find out how you can experience God in deeper ways this Lent.

The Vine

John 15:1-11

As we close out our series, we explore a vivid and rich passage that brings both a lot of comfort and a lot of conviction. Jesus tells us we are his and to "abide" in him. He also says that if we don't, we'll run the risk of being "cut off and burned." Pretty drastic.

Listen in as we explore how our usefulness in this world hinges on how well we understand what it means to abide in Jesus.

The Way The Truth The Life

John 14:1-14

Jesus said he is the way, the truth, and the life -- the only way to the Father is through him. For his followers 2,000 years ago, this was a difficult saying, and the same can be said for anyone looking to follow Jesus today -- much less anyone looking over the fence at Christianity. 

Join us as we unpack what this means, and find how this "I Am" statement from Jesus is more inviting than we could ever imagine.
