- We are all adopted sons of God,
- Biblical anger management.
Plus, Frank tells us about something surprising he found out from a DNA test.
Love is the most important idea in the world—it’s the center of the Gospel, the heart of everything God has done for us, and it’s also the basis of everything He demands of us—it's the center of the Law.
But what does God mean by “love?” If it’s the most important concept in the world, don’t you think we should probably spend some time clearing our mind of all the misinformation it’s cluttered with—don’t you think we should probably look at what God has told us in His Word about what love actually is?

When Jesus says unless we eat His flesh and drink His blood, is He talking about Communion? Are Christians cannibal vampires? Also, do we worship Jesus, or what He gives us? The crowd was only interested in Jesus for what He could give them. They wanted bread, they didn’t want a Lord.
So, why did John end his Gospel this way?
With a cool little story about the disciples going fishing, Jesus making them breakfast and having an awkward conversation with Peter. Why? What does he want us to do with this information? How does this wrap up the story? Is it like the scene after the credits in a Marvel movie? Like when the Avengers save the world and then they’re just sitting around a little restaurant in New York eating shawarma?
John 10:7-15 We are sheep, we act like goats and make life hard.
1 Corinthians 15:2–8 What does it mean to believe? What do we have to believe in to be saved?

As long as we have hope, we can endure pretty much anything. This is a reconciliation of the four Gospel resurrection accounts.
Opening monologue and message from the Service of Shadows.
Why palm branches? Why a donkey? Why "Hosanna?" What kind of King is Jesus anyway?
John 12:1-8, John 12:23-28 If we’re gonna follow Jesus—really follow Jesus, in the way that will actually lead to life and hope and salvation—then we’re gonna have to abandon our pride, abandon our life, and give Him everything we have—everything we are.
John 4:43-54 What is faith? Does God still heal? If so, why doesn't He heal me?
What you don't know about Jesus could ruin your life. Gospel of John John 2:13–25. Jesus gets a whip and makes the Temple holy.
Mark 8:27-9:1 Who do you say Jesus is? It's the most important question you're ever going to answer.
Mark 1:1–15 Get to know Jesus by walking with Him through the Gospels.
Love is the mission of the church. It is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.
Listening To The Spirit
John 17 — The prayer of Jesus filled with mysterious goodness. The purpose of the mission of the church is to glorify God. Jesus prayed that the church would be unified. It's the work that Jesus has done in each Christian's life—the indwelling of Christ—that gives the church's mission its power.
Why does NewChurch matter? Why does any church matter? The Gospel according to the Zombie Apocalypse. The church represents Jesus to the world, is Christ's ambassador, and has been given the ministry of reconciliation.
