The Once For All Sacrifice

Sermon Series: Jesus is Better - Studies in Hebrews

March 1, 2020

Bible Text: Hebrews 10:1-18 |

Series:

The big point over the last few chapters has been that Jesus is our great high priest. The author has been emphasising the fact that Jesus is the one who truly intercedes between God and humanity and that He is superior to the priests who come before him in the Old Testament because he brings a superior offering. The offerings of the Old Testament were not sufficient to truly clear the conscience of the worshiper, but Jesus does. He deals with sin once and for all. Here, in Hebrews chapter 10, the author zooms in on this particular feature of Christ's priesthood.

Listen in as we consider Hebrews 10's description of the problem of guilt and the solution of sacrifice.

The True Tabernacle – The True Sacrifice

Sermon Series: Jesus is Better - Studies in Hebrews

February 23, 2020

Bible Text: Hebrews 9:1-28 |

Series:

One of the main themes in the book of Hebrews is that the rituals and practices of the Old Covenant are just a shadow of the reality that is in Jesus Christ. They had deep significance and meaning but they pointed forward beyond themselves to a greater reality - the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In this sermon we consider this idea of shadow and reality using the Tabernacle described in Hebrews 9 as our case study.

Marriage

Sermon Serires: Sex in the City

November 18, 2018

Bible Text: Genesis 2:15-25 |

Series:

It's almost impossible to talk about "a theology of sex" without talking about "a theology of marriage". In Scripture sex and marriage are intimately intertwined. In this sermon we explore what the Bible says about marriage and then draw out some key implications for sexual ethics and theology.

The Passover Lamb

Ancient Grace - sermon series

February 25, 2018

Bible Text: Exodus 12:1-13 |

Series:

This sermon is the second 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 Exodus 12, we see how God's saving provision for his people on that first Passover night points us to the cross of Jesus Christ.

The Disciple

July 31, 2016

Bible Text: Romans 12:1-2 |

Series:

In this series we're trying to answer one question: What is a complete Christian? We ask this question because we want to ensure that we're heading in the right direction in our spirituality as we pursue a balanced and mature understanding and expression of our faith as Christians.

In this sermon we study Romans 12:1-2 as we look at what it means to be a disciple.
