Ezekiel and Jesus

Ezekiel and Jesus

There’s so much in Ezekiel’s prophecies which anticipate Jesus. We focus on 3 components:

  1. A New Temple

  2. A New People

  3. A New Shepherd

Identity, Ethics, and Mission (1 Peter 2:9-12)

Identity, Ethics, and Mission (1 Peter 2:9-12)

1 Peter 2 walks us through answers to a progression of questions: Who are we? How did we become who we are? How will this identity play out in our daily life? How will we impact others?

A People for God's Own Possession (1 Peter 2:4-12)

A People for God's Own Possession (1 Peter 2:4-12)

1 Peter 2 has some of the most potent language about the people of God in the entire Bible. We explore 5 designations for God's people and the meaning that each of them carry.

A Bruised Reed and a Smoking Wick (Isaiah 42:1-4)

A Bruised Reed and a Smoking Wick (Isaiah 42:1-4)

In anticipation of the mission of Jesus the Messiah, Isaiah describes the gentle care for people who are compared to bruised reeds and smoking wicks. We explore the meaning of these metaphors and how they relate to our mission to all people - even the fragile ones.
