Rediscovering Jesus
Who was Jesus?

There have been no shortage of opinions offered, books written, responses given to this question. Some worshiped Him as God. Others thought Him a criminal. Controversy followed Him throughout His life, and has continued 2,000 years after His death.

A few decades after the events of Jesus’ life on earth, a man named Luke wrote a detailed account for a friend–rediscovering Jesus. He asked questions of eyewitnesses, he listened to Jesus’ enemies, and worked hard to give an account of just who Jesus really was.

Luke was convinced Jesus had good news for us. Life changing news. Rest for the anxious. Healing for the broken. Freedom for the trapped. He wrote about Jesus, so that we could rediscover Jesus too.

05 A Church for the End of the World...Is Uncompromising

Revelation: A Church for the End of the World - Olathe Campus

Jesus is not the paranoid and cynical parent that says “You better be good and obey me or else.” Instead, Jesus is the loving and heartbroken parent who says “I see that your heart is being drawn away from me and I want you to return to me because I love you.” For those who have sought to discern the lies, endure the costs, and hold fast to Jesus, they receive the sweet promise that Christ has come not to add to our burdens but to remove our burdens. Amen! This is the good news of this terrifying letter. That while compromising with Jesus gets us nothing, those who give their lives to Him and seek first his kingdom receive the blessing of their burdens removed, their sins forgiven, their victories won, and their place with Christ the king forever. Friends, there are many things to compromise on in life. Don’t let Jesus be one of them.

From Series: "Revelation: A Church for the End of the World - Olathe Campus"

The world is changing. Technological progress has led to amazing developments - we can access anything, anywhere, or anyone in the world with the device in our pockets. We are filled with confidence that we will make a better future for ourselves. That we have no limits. The kingdom is right around the corner… At the same time, fewer and fewer people are attending church in the US. People who grew up in church are leaving, disengaging. Belief in a kingdom we can make for ourselves is strong, but it is a kingdom without a King. What is the church to be in this cultural moment? Join us as we go to an ancient source, the book of Revelation, 7 letters written by Jesus to the church of the 1st century that provide the way forward for the church of today. A church for the end of the world...
