  • Why Did Jesus Die?

    Contributed by Geoffrey Foot on Mar 24, 2018

    Jesus died a very brutal death and Christian know that by his death we have life. But at the time what were the charges that the Jews had to warrant death and why did they pass Jesus over to the Romans to do their dirty work?

    Why did Jesus Die? The ministry of Jesus lasted just over 3 years and we have the gospels that relate and record that ministry. A wealth of material to guide our Christian living, to offer us hope and to give us a strong faith. And yet out of all the gospels that last week of Jesus more

  • The Barren Fig Tree Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on May 2, 2018

    Jesus approached a fig tree expecting to find fruit, but it only had leaves. While it looked promising from a distance, looks were deceiving. Are we bearing fruit or just showing pretty leaves and blooms?

    The Barren Fig Tree Mark 11: 12-14; 20-21 Our text today follows Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. He had begun what most consider the Passion Week, the final days leading up to His crucifixion on Calvary’s hill. Most agree these events would have taken place on Monday morning of that more
