The Genealogy Of Jesus

A Place For Everyone!

Gavin Rodgers | Sun, 3rd Oct 2021

As we start our brand new series looking at Matthew's Gospel we are presented with a description of Jesus' family tree in Matthew 1. Forty-two generations, name after name after name - what a way to start a book! In this talk, Gavin unpacks the importance of Jesus' genealogy and how this is much more than just a list of names!

Decisions, Decisions
Matthew 7: 13-27

We live in a culture that says we can choose whichever path we want. 'If it's true for you then it's true'. But Jesus here is very controversially saying 'No!' There are only two paths, two decisions. One towards him and one away from him, and what we choose will have eternal consequences!

Using a memorable illustration about sawdust and planks, Jesus tells his followers not to judge others. Chris helps us to understand how we apply this to our community life together.

As we start off a new year continuing our series in Matthew we come to Jesus' teaching on one of the most relevant topics for today's society. Why do we worry so much? What is it that makes worry a natural response for us as people?

As we come to the end of Matthew's account of the Christmas story we get some drama! King Herod makes plans to try and kill Jesus, ordering that all baby boys under the age of 2 be killed. As we read through this account, we see firsthand the Protection of God, the Purpose of God and the Provision of God - a real reminder that he is in control and we can trust him.
