Jesus in the Temple

Wendell Ingram from Wapanucka is with us this week. He talks about the story in Luke 2 where the 12 year old Jesus amazes the adults at the temple with His understanding of scripture. Like Jesus, we should always be growing.
 



The Return From Exile (Zerubbabel, Nehemiah & Ezra)

This week we have a 3-for-1 in our Heroes of Faith series. As the Israelites return from exile, they are led by Zerubbabel, Nehemiah and Ezra to rebuild the temple and wall and renew their covenant with God and His law.
 



The Wedding Feast

Jesus tells this parable in Luke 14 to a group of Pharisees and teachers of the law who assume they are more important than most others they encounter daily. It’s easy for us to fall into the trap of seeking honor for ourselves and climbing to a higher status. This parable reminds us that God honors the humble, not the self-seeking. 
 



Jesus and Nicodemus

Phillip Johnson from West Side Church of Christ in Norman is with us this week as we finish the second month of our summer series, Encountering Jesus. He talks about John 3, where Nicodemus comes to Jesus and learns about being born again.

Daniel

When we think of Daniel, we often think of boldness, courage and deliverance. Daniel’s character that is shown in Babylon is a good example for Christians today as we learn how to live in exile. “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: “Build houses and settle



The Workers in the Vineyard

Often when we study this parable from Matthew 20, we focus on the discrepancy in pay for the workers who have put in different amounts of time working. Instead, this parable teaches about the generosity of our God and His love for His workers. God desires to give us so much more than we deserve.
 



Jesus and the Woman Caught in Adultery

This week Jacob Hawk from the Faith Village Church of Christ in Wichita Falls talks about this story from John 8, where a woman caught in adultery is brought before Jesus with the intent of trapping Him with the impossible question of how she should be punished. Instead Jesus diffuses the situation showing His compassion for her and leaves her with the simple words, “Go and sin no more.” 
 
 



The Unmerciful Servant

In response to Peter’s question about how many times he should forgive someone who sinned against him, Jesus tells this parable about a servant who receives great forgiveness but withholds forgiveness for another? We learn in Matthew 18 that God forgives and expects us to do the same.
 



Jesus and the Woman at the Well

In New Testament days, Jews and Samaritans did not get along. Jews would go as far as avoiding Samaria altogether when traveling. So why would it say early in John 4 that Jesus “had to go through Samaria.” He went there for a purpose. Instead of water, the woman He met at the well would find the Messiah. Drew “Boo” Scott from Westside Church of Christ in Norman unpacks this amazing story of an encounter with Jesus.
 



Esther

Esther finds herself in the right place at the right time to save her people, but she knows that speaking up could bring her a lot of trouble. This week we will see how she chooses courage over fear, how her adversary chooses pride and anger over humility and how the hand of God is working through the entire story.
