Bible Talks from John



Fallen Hero Restored

Preached on April 19, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 21

The book of John finishes with this incredible interaction between the resurrected Jesus, and his failed disciple Peter. As he restores him and reinstates him, we see the powerful mercy and grace God offers us all. In doing so, we can have complete trust in the eyewitness accounts of Jesus and trust what they say about who he is and what he has done.


After Easter… What Next?

Preached on April 19, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 21:15-23

Jesus rose. So what? John writes one more chapter to answer that question. In Peter, we’ll see how Jesus not only offers forgiveness but also his invitation to follow.


He Is Risen – Resurrection Sunday

Preached on April 12, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 20:1–29

Jesus told his disciples that he’d rise from the dead, but they didn’t seem to believe it until this moment, Thomas being the last to see. Then, from the biggest critic comes the clearest confession of Jesus’ identity in scripture, ‘My Lord and my God’. The resurrection of Jesus brings us to see his true identity – he not simply Lord and God, but died and rose again so he could be my Lord, and my God. It’s our prayer this Easter Sunday that you would come to this same realisation.

Jesus Alive: Fact or Fiction

Preached on April 12, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 20:19-31

From Thomas the greatest cynic filled 100% disbelief comes the greatest confession of Christ as Lord and God.


Everyone On The Side Of Truth Listens To Me

Preached on April 10, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 19

Jesus was clear to Pontius Pilate and to us that “everyone on the side of Truth listens me.” For truth is a person and that person is our Lord Jesus.


Gods Power Present In Jesus

Preached on April 5, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 18

The Apostle John has written this biography of Jesus so that we’d believe that he was the Saviour of the world and the divine Son of God. In this passage – Ch. 18 – John does this by showing us the raw power of Jesus, especially in contrast to the weakness of the men around him. We see why Jesus is worth trusting and why it was absolutely necessary that God’s Soon was the Saviour of the world.

Fighting A Friend

Preached on April 5, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 18

Why do we fight God? Jesus was deliberate in getting arrested, and determined to use His divine power to go to the cross and save us.


Inside Gods Heart

Preached on March 29, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 17

After spending all night with his disciples, Jesus now lifts his eyes and prays to his Father who is in heaven. In this passage, we get the privilege of hearing God the Son speak to his Father to hear what was on his heart just hours before his death. Although it shouldn’t surprise us, what we hear on Jesus’ lips is what is in his heart, and there we find his Father’s glory, his disciples, and us.


Jesus’ Farewell Prayer

Preached on March 29, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 17

Jesus prays for himself, for the 11 apostles, and most wonderfully for us 2000 years later. His big prayer point is that we would be one in love and truth so that the world may know that Jesus is heaven sent.


From Grief To Joy

Preached on March 22, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: John 16:16-33

As Jesus prepares his disciples for his arrest and death, he comforts them with news of joy that will overcome their grief. In fact it will be a divine joy, anchored in Jesus, perfect for a world feeling shaken by anxiety and fear.
