Join us this week at Matthew Whipple preaches on Luke 1:26-45.

Jesus Son of Joseph, Son of David, Son of Jesse

December 24, 2015

Christmas Eve 2015

Luke 2:1-21

Have you ever considered what it has taken for God to succeed in bringing His Church into existence? For sure when considering an answer, the average Christian is going to go to the cross and point out that the death of Christ is a staggering cost to bring the race from cosmic estrangement to being called the family of God. And for sure, we ought to go to the cross when considering the cost God had to pay to form His church. But going to the cross without considering the massive steps that lead to this world-changing event is kind of like attending the funeral of a man with 30 grand children and not recognizing that he was a married man with a family- something is missing. 

When we trace the roots of the nation of Israel, from Abraham to Moses, from Joshua to the Judges, from Saul to David, from the Kings to the prophets, and from the exile to the birth of Christ laying in a manger, we get a rich view of salvation history that can help us to see how very tenacious the Living God is and the extent to which His love has spanned the centuries in order to secure a family. That makes the cross a wonder to behold and the empty tomb a staggering triumph.

Join us this Advent as we look back into the Bible to trace the promise of Jesus, The Righteous Branch.

Jubilee Sermon Series: Shabbat

November 22, 2015

Matthew 12:1-13

From the composition of songs to the food we create, rest is a requirement for a good life. We rest the land and it flourishes. We rest our bodies and they thrive. In Matthew 12, Jesus declares that he is the Lord of the Sabbath; then he heals someone. Further, according to the Bible, and common sense, true rest is not just a private affair. Instead, it requires the consent of a whole society and is therefore commanded in the law as a basic moral requirement for all mankind.

In this week's film we will explore the need to include rest both in the music we love and within the relationships we love, we will discover that the Sabbath day is a moral requirement that we should love and embrace as a way of bringing healing into the world.  View the video here: https://vimeo.com/146333023

Jubilee Sermon Series: Shalom

November 15, 2015

Matthew 25:31-46

When God placed Adam and Eve in the garden, his goal for humanity was to have mankind offer his work in service to others as service to God. Our individual work matters. But, Adam alone in a garden would not make a city. Instead, it was God’s intention in the beginning to interweave His work with ours so that the world would flourish. The biblical word we use to describe this reality is shalom or peace. And, rather than “peace” being a word of resigned tolerance, biblical peace connotes God’s ideal for how we steward our combined work as creatures made in his image. The parable of the sheep and the goats contrasts how our work will be judged by Jesus as either work done in service to others as service unto God or our work done in service unto ourselves.

This week's film will unravel the intricate beauty of how God’s plan for the world can be seen in a couple making a simple sandwich as work done in service to others as service unto God. View the video here: https://vimeo.com/145462840

Jubilee Sermon Series: Shekel

November 08, 2015

Luke 10:25-37

When we think of the Good Samaritan, we often think of his compassion. However, the Good Samaritan combined compassion with capacity (wealth) in order to care for his neighbor. From thinking that non-profit work is morally superior to for-profit business, to thinking that money is bad, we often have an incorrect understanding of what the Bible requires of us in loving our neighbors.

According to Jesus, to truly care for others we need to combine capacity and compassion.

This week's sermon began with a film created for this series, you can hear the audio in the recording or view the video below. This film will explore how capacity and compassion equal care by exploring the Parable of the good Samaritan with the everyday challenge of two children who set out to love their neighbor. https://vimeo.com/145176431

Jubilee Sermon Series: Shekel, Shalom, Shabot

November 01, 2015

Luke 4:14-30

In the Old Testament, God presented His people with the Jubilee. It was a set of practices designed to correct the effects of the fall by allowing the Israelites to recover from financial loss, relational breakdown, and exhaustion. Tragically, because of their waywardness, the Jubilee of God remained largely just a concept in the Old Testament. But, Jubilee is still a vital element of God’s story because in the coming of Christ, it was finally put into effect. In fact, the whole New Testament is chock full of examples of the ways in which Christ’s death, resurrection and ascension reverse the effects of the fall, especially in the ways we deal with our money, our relationships and our rest. The Jubilee of God allows us to work toward the way things should be rather than being resigned to the way things are.

Transcending Chaos: Testimony Sundy

October 25, 2015

Psalms 56

The sea represented Utter Chaos in the ancient world.  Other near-East religions account gods battling the sea (Yam, TiamatApepVritraTyphon, etc.).  Christian Scripture accounts Christ not battling, but walking on the sea: transcending it, commanding it, and calling us to do the same.  Likewise, David juxtaposes his relationship of utter chaos in the world with confident tranquility in his God.  Join us as we explore the continuing work of our chaos-transcending God in our seminarian's life, Kevin Chung, on testimony Sunday.
