Witnesses to Jesus

John 5:31-47 Jesus continued his bold declaration of deity and provided evidence beyond just his own words. Pastor Rod Bunton looks at three witnesses that Jesus provides to support his claim: John the Baptist, Jesus’ miracles, and the scriptures themselves.

The Son of Man Gives Life

John 5:24-30 After boldly claiming equality with God, Jesus went on to teach the importance of believing his words and repenting. Pastor Rod Bunton explains the two different consequences for those who hear and believe and those who don’t.

Jesus is Equal with God

John 5:16-24 Having just healed on the Sabbath, the Jews were stirred to anger at Jesus. What happened next moved them to seek to find a way to kill him. Pastor Rod Bunton looks at Jesus’ claim of equality with God and the evidences that he presented to support that claim.

Healing Leads to Grace or Rejection

John 4:43-5:17 John includes two encounters that Jesus had with people in need of healing and their contrasting responses are significant. Rod Bunton explores how Jesus’ healing miracles led to saving faith in one case and rejection in the other.

Worship in Spirit and Truth

John 4:23-26 While revealing his deity to the woman at the well, Jesus also emphasized that worship wasn’t about a place but about a person. Pastor Rod Bunton looks at two characteristics of worship taught by Jesus in this passage.

Worship the Father

John 4:20-24 Part of the teaching from Jesus to the Samaritan woman was about worshipping the true God. Pastor Rod Bunton explores a number of related passages in this introduction to becoming a true worshipper.

The Woman at the Well

John 4:1-42 In this well-known story, we learn about a Samaritan woman who arrives at a water well and meets Jesus. Pastor Rod Bunton explores the revelations and impacts in this passage where a city in Samaria learns about the Savior of the world.

Great Truths about Christ

John 3:31-36 Following John the Baptist’s declaration that “He must increase, but I must decrease,” today’s passage explains why. Pastor Rod Bunton teaches how Jesus is uniquely qualified beyond every earthly being and the key to eternal life for those who believe.

He Must Increase, But I Must Decrease

John 3:22-30 John the Baptist drew much attention in his work to draw people to the savior through water baptism, but Jesus’ ministry was starting to draw people, too. Pastor Rod Bunton shows how John’s humble attitude in recognizing that his time was coming to an end contrasted with his disciples.

He Gave His Only Begotten Son

John 3:16-21 God’s love for the entire world was manifested by giving over his Son to be a substitute, taking on the judgment that we deserve because of our sin. Pastor Rod Bunton concludes this passage by examining the divine act and the human response.

For God So Loved the World

John 3:16 John 3:16 has to be the most well-known and oft-quoted verse in the Bible. Pastor Rod Bunton digs deep into the first part of the verse to explain God’s motive and answers important questions: why does He love us and does he really love the whole world?

The Real Issue is that You Do Not Believe

John 3:9-15 After hearing that he must be born of the Spirit, Nicodemus expressed his confusion. Pastor Rod Bunton gets to the heart of the problem: the issue isn’t that you don’t understand, this issue is that you do not believe the one who has ascended into Heaven.
