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.

09 A Church for the End of the World...Expects God

What is it that makes Jesus sick to his stomach? It is the pride of self-sufficiency. This is precisely what the church at Laodicea was plagued by. When we seek to depend upon our own strength, wisdom, and accomplishments we not only find ourselves building a life upon a shaky foundation, but we also find ourselves living contrary to how we were designed. Through Jesus, we have, can, and will conquer if we turn from our self-sufficiency and depend on him alone. He is knocking at our door to come in and fellowship with us today. Will we respond? Conquers Revelation 3:14-22 November 17, 2019 Henry Thompson

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...
