hanukkah, light, menorah, winter
In the second part of John 10 the crowd just wants to hear it plainly from the horse's mouth, "Are you the Messiah?" but Jesus tells them "You don't believe anything I tell you but you could at least believe the works I do." They wanted to stone him but he escapes. There's a ton of evidence to back up Jesus' claim but even today, people don't believe. They want to do their own thing without responsibility and so even after weighing the evidence they walk away. Will you do the same?

crowd, good, jesus, shepherd, sin, temple
In John 10 Jesus says He is the good shepherd and he tries to persuade the crowd to be sheep. He tells them a story of a thief that comes over the wall and how the sheep are frightened and run off. But he is the shepherd that comes in the gate and there is peace among the sheep because they know it's the shepherd. David tells us Psalm 23 "the Lord is my shepherd" and he lists some characteristics of the shepherd. Are you going to trust Jesus to be your shepherd are you going to keep trying to do things your way and make a mess of it all?

adultery, compassion, grace, love, mercy, stones, stoning, teaching, temple
Jesus continues to try to explain to people that he is the very Messiah they have been looking for but they just can't get past the idea that they know his family, and since they believe the Messiah will just show up, they don't believe him. And it comes to a boiling point at the end of the chapter as Jesus says two words, "I AM", and they pick up stones to stone him to death. But before the dialogue Jesus displays what we we as christians are to be about as he shows grace and mercy to a woman caught in adultery.

People use Jeremiah 29:11 quiet often but they really have no idea the meaning behind the verse. My goal in this podcast is to give you the context of Jeremiah 29:11 so the next time you use it or see it, you'll truly understand what God was saying!

Jesus is challenged by his (half) brothers to go to the Festival of Shelters and prove himself because they don't believe in him. While there he goes to the temple and teaches showing no fear in the face of those who want him dead.

bread, fish, full, lunchable, saved
We hear this story called the feeding of the 5,000 but that was just the count of the men. In reality, there's more like 10,000 there including women and children. Jesus feeds them with two fish and five loaves of bread. Would that be enough to convince them to believe?

This is my favorite chapter in the New Testament. Jesus, a Jew, walks on Samaritan soil blowing all the religious rules out of the water, has a conversation with a Samaritan woman, and a village is changed because of it!
