The Biblical Office of King

Our own Martin Rossol covered a lot of ground, or maybe provided a 30,000 foot view of “Kingship” in the Bible, mostly focused in the Old Testament, but also the fulfillment of this “office” by Jesus- as prophesied. How and when did the office of “King” originate and how might we think about it today. This is the first in a series on anger – you’ll have to catch later episodes to see the connection!

The Ultimate Statistic

What statistic does no one what to be part of, but we all will be? Death. God doesn’t shy from the brutal truth: as a consequence of sin, everyone is condemned to die. As early as Genesis chapter 5 God forcefully confirms this fact to anyone who is paying attention. Yet even in this dismal description of humanity, there are two seeds of hope. Martin Rossol does not what you to miss these two glimmers.

Do Not Be Afraid

In all the gospel narratives the issue of fear is addressed by Jesus and heavenly messengers (angels). We hear things like “Fear not”, “Do not be afraid!”; “…and the doors were locked because they were afraid.” Fear has been with the human race since the garden of Eden. But what does Easter have to do with fear? In his sermon, Martin Rossol, wants us to recognize that Easter has a lot to do with the fear of being abandoned; the fear of judgement; and the fear of death.

Jesus Conquers Death

Is Jesus trustworthy? Will he do what he claims? CAN he do what he says he can? St Matthew has given his readers convincing evidence that Jesus is, in fact, very trustworthy. In today’s sermon, Martin Rossol reviews the last and most convincing proof that Jesus is the all-powerful King of the coming Kingdom of God. Jesus raises a girl who has clearly died, back to life. And he does it as easily as you tapping someone who is asleep on the shoulder: “Psst, wake up!”
