A King Like No Other

 Tim Keller writes that "Jesus's life, death and resurrection form the central event of cosmic and human history as well as the central organising principle of our own lives. Said another way, the whole story of the world - and of how we fit into it - is most clearly understood through a careful, direct look at the story of Jesus" (King's Cross).
The aim of this series is to enable us to take a careful, direct look at Jesus in the pages of Mark's Gospel, so we can better understand his supreme significance in history, and the need to keep him central to our lives.

Past Series

Matt Leach - 23/03/2015
When we celebrate communion we retell the greatest story in history – the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Matt looks at the significance of the event of the Last Supper and it’s implication for God’s people individually and as a family together.

Extravagant Devotion To The King
Jem Bunce - 08/03/2015
Jem Bunce from our sister church Blaze in Newquay explains how extravagant worship to Jesus cause reactions of disapproval in His day, as it does today. But one day it will be universally accepted.

Out With The Old
Andrew Sampson - 01/03/2015
Jesus will not allow us to accommodate him into our old lives. He calls us to an entirely new way to live. Andrew Sampson examines the contrast between the self-interest of the religious scribes and the total sacrifice of the poor widow to explain what being part of God’s kingdom is all about.

(Apologies for the quality of the audio - technical hitch on this one)

The Parable of the Tenants
Matt Leach - 08/02/2015
Relevant for then and relevant for now this story packs a punch far above the weight of it's few verses. Extra details and a crunch of gears just help to make us wonder what Jesus was talking about. Matt endeavours to explain the significance.

Jesus and the Temple
Andrew Sampson - 01/02/2015
When Jesus entered the Jerusalem temple during the Jewish festival of Passover, he overturned the money-changers' tables and drove out those who were buying and selling there. Why did he do it? Andrew Sampson explains how Jesus' protest spoke of God's judgement on His people and His intention to replace the temple with something better, namely Jesus' perfect sacrifice. How shall we respond?

There's No Commandment Greater Than These
Tom Beaumont - 26/01/2015
What's love got to do with it? Everything, according to Jesus. Beau takes us through the two greatest commandments and explores how loving God wholeheartedly frees us from self-interest, and empowers us to love others in a practical way.
