He Chose Death (Good Friday)

Two thousand years ago, a man died. And the world was changed. On Good Friday, Justin Fung talks about the significance of Jesus' death on the cross. [John 19:1-37]

Priests, Palms, and Possibilities

We celebrate Palm Sunday (and also close out the first part of our look at John's Gospel) by hearing how Jesus describes who he is. Justin Henry asks what misconceptions we might hold about Jesus. [Matthew 21:1-11; John 5:19-40]

One Healer, Three Responses

Today we see Jesus, for the first time in John's Gospel, heal people, and as we experience Jesus' actions and words through three different perspectives, we realize that things may not be as simple as they seem. Justin Fung brings us the message, in three acts. [John 4:46-5:16]

Boundary-Crossing Love

What would you do if you met someone who knew everything about you? What would you do if they knew it all and love it all? This week in John 4, a woman meets Jesus and discovers that he knows all about her life and her past, and yet displays a love towards her that is pure and caring in a way she's never experienced. As we continue our journey through John, we will see what happens when Jesus crosses social boundaries intended to separate and dehumanize, and matches them with love and invitation to life found in faith. [John 4:1-26]

John the Forerunner

As we meet John the Baptist again, Marisa Stubbs points out a better name for him, one based not on what he does but on his relationship to Jesus: John the Forerunner. [John 3:22-36]

New Birth, New Life

Andrea Ackermann takes us to Jesus' meeting with Nicodemus, one of the religious leaders of the day, and explores what it means to be born from above — to be born of God. [John 3:1-21]

Shame Transformed and Shame Driven Out

In John 2, Jesus attends a wedding and a worship service. In both places, his aim is to replace shame and isolation with honor and embrace. Matthew Watson explores the meaning behind Jesus' miracle of turning water to wine and helps us understand what was at stake when Jesus drove the moneychangers from the temple. [John 2:1-11, 13-22]

Dwelling in the Desert (Ash Wednesday)

As we mark Ash Wednesday and begin the season of Lent, Justin Fung talks about the difficulty of the deserts we find ourselves in — the places of "This is not what I thought life would look like" — and the opportunities that lie there too. [2 Corinthians 5:20b-6:10]

A Question, Two Invitations, and a Promise

This week, we get to meet Jesus for the first time in person in John's Gospel and we hear his first words: "What do you want?", "Come and see," "Follow me," and "You will see more." Lisa Watson talks to us about how these words still have resonance for us today. [John 1:35-51]
