The True and Greater Israel

Ancient Grace - sermon series

March 18, 2018

Bible Text: Luke 4:1-13 |

Series:

This sermon is the fifth in our series Ancient Grace.

Where does the story of Jesus start in the Bible? How you answer that question is going to shape the way you read and understand most of your Bible, particularly the Old Testament. The contention of this sermon series, Ancient Grace, is that the whole Bible, even the Old Testament is actually all about Jesus - about God's grace to us in sending us a Saviour to save us from our sin.

In this sermon we consider Jesus' temptation in the wilderness in Luke chapter 4. Cast against the backdrop of Israel's wilderness wanderings in Deuteronomy, and knowing how they fared in their testings there, the obvious question is how will Jesus respond? As we reflect on the tests he faced and the resistance that he offers, we find our answer to the question "Is he really the true and greater Israel?"

The Forsaken Sufferer

Ancient Grace - sermon series

March 11, 2018

Bible Text: Psalm 22:1-31 |

Series:

This sermon is the fourth in our series Ancient Grace.

Where does the story of Jesus start in the Bible? How you answer that question is going to shape the way you read and understand most of your Bible, particularly the Old Testament. The contention of this sermon series, Ancient Grace, is that the whole Bible, even the Old Testament is actually all about Jesus - about God's grace to us in sending us a Saviour to save us from our sin.

Psalm 22 begins with the anguished cry "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" As we listen to the voice of David, and Jesus - who utters these very same words on the cross so many years later - we discover the basis for a strong confidence in God's faithfulness to his children, even when our perceptions tell us otherwise.

One of the prevailing ideas in our culture is that our own autonomy is the secret to our happiness. In Psalm 2 we gain insight into the nature of our world and the nature of our God, as we hear it expose the illusion of absolute autonomy and find hope in the solution it presents for our true happiness.
