This Sunday we are wrapping up our Questions of Jesus series with one last question of Jesus: “Do you love me?” This powerful question is from John 21:15-19, which tells the story of Jesus’ restoration of Peter.
This week we look to another one of Jesus’s appearances to the disciples after his resurrection, and what it shows us about how he wants to encourage and restore us— even in the midst of great trial— so we may be sent out to share his grace and truth with the rest of the world.
Our story this week story invites us to encounter the living Jesus like the disciples did on the road to Emmaus, and asks us to open our eyes to him more and more.
This Easter Sunday we look at the story of when Mary, weeping over Jesus’s death, is confronted by the man she is mourning. The story speaks to the power and impact of the resurrection for all of us, not just for Mary, but for the whole world.
In the question Jesus asks that we’re exploring this week, “Can you drink the cup I’m going to drink?”, we see the contrast between what was expected of Jesus and what he will actually go on to do, foretelling how ultimately Jesus came to serve instead of be served, giving his life as a ransom for many.
As we’ve been seeing throughout our series, Jesus uses questions to connect deeply with people. This week in particular, the question we’ll look at shows how much Jesus presses the hearer to fuller self-exploration.
The next question of Jesus that we’re looking at is: ‘who do you say that I am?’ At first, this question seems to be about identity— who he is— but as we’ll explore together, it’s also the turning point for him to begin to live out what he came to do.
The question we look at this week is: Do you want to get well?
This week, we’re exploring the question behind one of the most well-known passages in the Sermon on the Mount: why do you worry?
This week, we’ll look at the question that Jesus asks that gets to the heart of one the most complex and intimate places of our lives: our families.
This week’s question that Jesus asks of the woman caught in adultery will have us exploring who we allow to condemn us, and who we allow ourselves to condemn.
This week, we’ll be looking at Jesus’ response to the chronically ill and desperate woman who reaches out to him for healing, and how his question to her calls her out of the margins and into wholeness and healing.
In our second week of this series, we’ll look at Jesus’s question to his disciples while they are on a boat in the middle of a storm: why are you so afraid? We’ll explore our fear, and what role faith has to play in the midst of it.
Jesus asked more than 300 questions in the four gospels! Why does he ask so many questions? Sometimes he does it as a teaching tool, but more often, he does so to engage people in a real relationship. Join us as we begin this series looking at one of his questions a week.
