Resurrection


The resurrection of Jesus is the Christian reason for faith, joy, wonder, and hope. The gospel of John reports the resurrection through the eyes of John, Mary, Thomas, and Peter, who embody these responses. The risen Jesus, who walks through walls, fries up fish, and speaks sweetly to His followers, gives His followers a glimpse into their new, glorified bodies. This sermon is the last in the Our Spiritual World Series. It takes great pains (and fifty minutes) to detail the deeper magic of Jesus' triumph over death and ours.

Spiritual Knowledge


Followers of Jesus do not need to divorce reason and faith. A good deal of knowledge supports Christian convictions, including evidential, experimental, and experiential forms of knowing. The Bible itself asserts God has revealed Himself (in various forms and times), and we can know Him relationally. Sadly, many have rejected this knowledge of God, exchanging the Creator for the material world and a false sense of autonomy. This sermon encourages Christ-followers to own what they know and know the One who owns them.
