Another Look at the Book

Another Look at the Book

Series start date: January 23rd, 2022

In 2009, our church journeyed through scripture together. We spent over a year reading texts together, studying the same texts together and listening to sermons on these same texts. It was a transformational experience. Our love for scripture flows out of our understanding that God has used scripture as one way to reveal himself to the world, communicate great truths, and shape the receivers of scripture into His prized possession. In this shortened journey through scripture, we will seek to grow our appreciation for scripture, position ourselves to better receive the scripture, and grow more in love with the God of the scripture.

    The Revelation

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    June 19th, 2022

    The book of Revelation is a letter that was written during a period when men and women were asking the same questions about life that we ask today, and they were eager and desirous of rescue from the pains of their lives. The treatment of this writing has ranged from complete avoidance due to its complicated imagery and metaphors, to outlandish conclusions being established that cause hysteria and spiritual frenzies. Let's pause and take another look at the Revelation.

    The Wisdom

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    May 15th, 2022

    The Old Testament contains a collection of writings that were produced to offer instructions about life on earth. The Human condition is one full of questions like, “Why do good people suffer?” and “Why do bad people prosper?” In many ways, Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs provide direction and wise words about life. While some questions are answered, other questions are raised. Wisdom literature gives us a space to wrestle with life’s toughest questions.

    No Minor Offense

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    May 8th, 2022

    The Minor prophets represent a collection of 12 short oracles. In its original form, the “Twelve” prophecies were written on one scroll. The word minor refers to the length of their messages, not their importance or impact. In fact, the Minor Prophets contain some of the most hard-hitting judgments against the people of God particularly as it pertains to the way they treated other people. The voices of these prophets are not to be disregarded.

    Major Prophets

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    May 1st, 2022

    A large portion of the Old Testament is dedicated to the stories and messages associated with prophets. The prophets in the Old Testament were called to be “God’s Mouthpiece!” The books that bear the name of the prophets contain weird imagery and strong language for the purpose of enforcing the covenant of God and calling people to return to Him.

    The Gospels: Discipleship

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    April 10th, 2022

    Peter was ready to kill for Jesus, but wasn't willing to die for Jesus!

    In a word, one could argue that the sole goal of the four gospels is “discipleship”. That is, these portrayals of Jesus were written for the purpose of making followers of Jesus. In this sermon, we will dive deep into the reports that describe Jesus calling men, women, and children to follow him.

    The Gospels: Friends, Strangers & Enemies

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    April 3rd, 2022

    "We are all a compilation of God and gangsta', healing and hurt, truth and tragedy, and passion and pain."

    - Joie Rasberry

    The Gospels report the life and ministry of Jesus. Jesus’ story would be an empty tale if not for the inclusion of his many encounters with people. The gospels report that Jesus interacted with a variety of different people, and God used him to demonstrate great love toward friends, a confounding love toward his enemies, and a radical love toward strangers.

    The Gospels: Testimony

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    March 27th, 2022

    The life of Jesus, the savior of the world, is chronicled in four separate accounts. We call these writings the Gospels. The four separate gospels share a lot of material, while maintaining their own unique perspective on the life of Jesus. In this sermon we introduce the importance of the story of Jesus as it pertains to our reading of scripture.

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    March 20th, 2022

    A large portion of the Old Testament contains detailed narratives about the ancient followers of God, namely the descendants of Jacob (the Israelites). The ups and downs of a religious community is chronicled in passionate, disappointing and often humorous detail. In this sermon, we will spotlight a few of the major stories included in the section of the Old Testament, often referred to as the Historical Books.

    The Torah

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    March 13th, 2022

    In short, Torah means law. In Judaism, Torah represents the 'the substance of divine revelation to Israel, the Jewish people: God’s revealed teaching or guidance for humankind.' We are accustomed to defining Torah as the first five books of the Old Testament (also called the Pentateuch). In this overview of the first five books of the Old Testament, we will discuss the major themes and revelations regarding the character and personality of its main character, Yahweh.

    The Beginning

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    March 6th, 2022

    The book of Genesis is not merely a text to refute competing origin stories. Genesis is a rich text that attempts to answer deeper questions related to our complex anthropology. Genesis sets the stage for the grand narrative that is authored by God and is revealed throughout the remainder of the bible.

    Speak Where the Bible Speaks

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    February 6th, 2022

    Read the bible to hear what it is speaking into your life. Sadly, "Speak where the bible speaks and be silent where the bible is silent" has turned into a battle cry to tell others what the bible speaks to them. In other words, we are so quick to tell others what the bible says without first embracing its life and truth for us.

    The Bible Tells Me So

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    January 30th, 2022

    The Bible stands as the sole authority in the life of the Christian church. While creeds and unspoken rules may exist, their origins often come from an interpretation of scripture. In this sermon we will explore how the Bible became our authority, and the desired results of that authority in our lives.
