Easter: Fake News or Good News?

How do we know the truth about a report we hear? Whether it is on the TV, in the papers or on social media? In the rush to get the scoop, lies and half-truths mascaraed as news. Some people see the resurrection of Jesus like that. Fake news, concocted because people need something to believe. Even some Christians think that we are asked to believe entirely on the basis of blind faith rather than evidence. This is not the case. Chris offers three types of evidence: Historical, Psychological and Experiential.

The Message of the Cross

In this series our aim is not to come up with clever theories about the cross but to reap its benefits, live its life and proclaim its gospel. Chris aims to inspire us to discover again the wonder and power of the cross of Christ. In the first talk he focusses on the revelation which the cross brings about who we are, who God is and how we can be reconciled.

The Sabbath

Peter Finnis preaches on Matthew 11 vs 28 – 12 vs 14 and Jesus’ attitude towards the Sabbath.

In contrast to the Old Testament Sabbath and the views of the Pharisees, we learn that Sabbath rest is wholeness and well-being in our whole lives, to be found only in Jesus when we walk alongside Him. Sabbath rest for the people of God is to submit our efforts and our work to Him – to enter God’s rest in order to rest from our own work.

Our lives surrendered to Christ brings rest and what follows is Christ’s work in us.

“Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in God”

Holy Spirit in Jesus

Jesus’ birth, teaching, power, sacrificial death and resurrection were all the result of the work of the Spirit. Jesus told the disciples that because He lived with them the Spirit lived with them and would one day live in them. Having reflected on what the life and teaching of Jesus reveal about Holy Spirit, Chris outlines how we are seeking to respond as a church.
