The Spiritual Gospel. Week 38 (October 26, 2019)

We have reached the end of the first “major” section of the Gospel of John — the book of signs. It’s a bit of review, a bit of summary, a bit of a challenge, and as the curtains close, we are left with a decision to make.

The Spiritual Gospel. Week 37 (October 20, 2019)

This week, Josh unloads FIVE preaching points from John’s “version” of the Gethsemane story. (I mean, it’s not really the same as Jesus praying in the Garden, but he’s “troubled.”) Get ready for super practical.

The Spiritual Gospel. Week 36. The Triumphal Entry … Again

This sermon has *everything*: a manuscript, 17 minute description of all the fun stuff that we “aren’t talking about,” some practical stuff for people just barely holding on, and hope.

Jesus is the peaceful King, who comes to give life.

The Spiritual Gospel. Mini-Series. Stories of Anointing (October 6, 2019)

The Spiritual Gospel. Mini-Series. Stories of Anointing (Suzi Peterson)

So, this isn’t technically part of our series on John, but it’s linked. All four Gospels include a story of a woman anointing Jesus with a precious ointment. This is Luke’s version. Next week, we’ll look at John’s version. (Spoiler: They are different.)
