Part 7: Live in a Way That Begs the Question

Podcast cover
Read more

From the series "Preaching The Gospel." Our fifth and final best practice for preaching the gospel is to simply bear witness: to live in a way that begs the question. Most of “evangelism” in the early church was simply people living a radically different and deeply good life, and scores of people being drawn into the beauty of the gospel. Millions found Jesus so compelling they were willing to die for him. Do we?

Part 4: Recognizing Where God is Already Working and Joining In

Podcast cover

Part 3: Practice Hospitality

Podcast cover
Read more

From the series "Preaching The Gospel." Jesus “came eating and drinking.” If he had a “method of evangelism,” that was it: eat a meal with people far from God. And all through the New Testament, apprentices of Jesus are commanded to follow his example through the practice of hospitality. Something as radically ordinary and setting a table can create space for people far from God to experience the Father’s warm welcome into his family.

Part 2: The Four American Gospels

Podcast cover
Read more

From the series "Preaching The Gospel." The word “gospel” means different things to different people in the American church, and many of them are misunderstandings of the gospel of Jesus. At their worst, these misunderstandings are obstacles to a life of discipleship. In this teaching we compare and contrast the four American gospels with Jesus’ gospel.

From the series "Preaching The Gospel." We kick off our practice of Preaching the Gospel with an honest conversation about why our generation is emotionally triggered by the idea of “evangelism,” as well as the possibility that part of the reason is because we’ve misunderstood what the gospel even is.

From the series "Gospel of Matthew." God’s people spent centuries living under the oppression of empires, waiting for Him to rescue them and set the world straight. Finally, God seems to begin that work. Jesus arrives proclaiming that God’s Kingdom is finally coming through Him and people are convinced. They put their hope in Jesus but then Rome kills Him. Days later, two stories begin to circulate. Some of those in power say that Jesus’ corpse had been stolen, but a woman claims that she saw Jesus back from the dead. Which story will you trust?
