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.

03 Home Is a Place Without Fear

Coming Home - Brookside Campus

Isaiah 41:1-20

From Series: "Coming Home - Brookside Campus"

The holidays are a time when we think about home. For some, home is a place of warm memories. For others, home was a place you couldn’t wait to escape. But all of us have some sense that we aren’t quite at home in the world. One of the many ways the Bible talks about the human experience is the feeling of being away from our true home. The Bible calls this exile. We are all—to use Steinbeck’s turn of phrase—living East of Eden. This Advent we are going to explore our longing for home and look at the hope that the Old Testament book of Isaiah offers that one day we will be able to come home at last.

01 The Real Jesus

Rediscovering Jesus - Downtown Campus

From Series: "Rediscovering Jesus - Downtown Campus"

Jesus of Nazareth. There have been no shortage of opinions offered, books written, responses given to who Jesus was. Some worshipped Him as God. Others thought Him a criminal. The controversy surrounding Jesus followed Him through His life, and it has continued 2,000 years after His death. There is no masking Jesus’ enormous influence on human history. In the midst of all this noise, who was Jesus? Why is He so important to human history? Is Jesus simply someone who agrees, confirms, and approves of everything we already thought and believed? A few decades after the death of Jesus, a man named Luke was wrestling with those questions with his friend, a friend uncertain as to who Jesus was. So Luke set about rediscovering Jesus. He asked Jesus’ friends, he listened to Jesus’ enemies, and worked hard to give us the 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. Luke rediscovered Jesus. He wrote about Jesus, so that we could rediscover Jesus.

06 A Church for the End of the World...Is True

But Jesus is saying that one day the truth will be known. Jesus will return and where we spend and how we spend the remainder of eternity has everything to do with what we believe today. We can either be ruled by false belief and find ourselves at war with Jesus, or we can surrender our false beliefs and conquer with Jesus. While others feast today, we hold fast to hidden manna of which the rest of the world knows nothing. When others are invited to prestigious positions because they promote the world’s values, we hold on to the invitation to feast at Jesus’ banquet at the end of time. When so many are making a name for themselves, we rest content that our name is hidden in Christ’s name to be revealed when He returns. The world is heading for a disastrous end. We on the other hand long to be a church for the end of the world. So may we hold onto Jesus in every way knowing that even in the ordinary the greatest battles are won by faith. ...Is True Revelation 2:12-29 October 27, 2019 SPEAKER: Gabe Coyle

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...
