God created the universe – What is Christianity? (2)

Why is the world so full of contradictions – full of beauty and wonder, and yet with so much darkness and ugliness? Why does nothing seem to satisfy? Why do relationships cause so much pain? Why do we die? Was this how it was meant to be? In this session we go back to the beginning of the Bible to answer the question of how God intended creation to be.

The Message of Christianity and the Bible – What is Christianity? (1)

In this course, we are looking at what Christianity is. In the first part of this course, we see that the message of Christianity is the message of the Bible. We learn what Christianity is as we explore the story of the Bible, from creation to new creation, with Jesus at the centre. In this session we look at why you should care about the Bible, and a brief overview of what the Bible contains.

This is the first part of a new “What is Christianity?” course. This is an updated and expanded version of the course originally released in 2021, but with significant differences – not least the production values!

What is Christianity? 6 – The Future

What is heaven going to be like? I’m sure almost everyone has an opinion on what lies beyond death. But what does the Bible have to say about it? In this final session of the What is Christianity course, we see how what the Bible says about the future draws everything else together.

Coming up next…

This is the last session of the What is Christianity? course 😢 But – don’t be sad! There’s still lots more to learn, and there’ll be lots more on Understand the Bible! Be happy! 😊

Next week I will be starting on a new version of the How to Live as a Christian course. This is nine sessions looking at how to live as a Christian. So – stay tuned! Do subscribe on YouTube or sign up to the mailing list to be notified of when it goes live.

What is Christianity? 5 – Grace and the Spirit

If God forgives us anyway, can’t we just do what we like? What’s our motivation to do good? In this session we focus on what it means to live a Christian life. We think about how God’s grace changes us, and how the Holy Spirit helps us.

What is Christianity? 4 – Jesus

The last session finished on a bit of a cliffhanger: God had made big promises to Abraham, but how could he keep them? The Old Testament demonstrated that sin was too strong to overcome on our own. But God had a plan to save the world.

What is Christianity? 3 – Old Testament

Stories are not just for entertainment – they are hugely powerful in shaping and teaching us. Maybe that’s why God gave us a story, the biggest story, in the Bible. In this session we look at what happened after Genesis 3 – how does the Old Testament message lead us to Jesus?

What is Christianity? 2 – Where it all went wrong

If God made a good world, then why is there so much bad stuff in the world? Why are there wars, and pandemics, and break-ups, and death? Why is my life in such a mess? In the second part of the What is Christianity? course we look at where it all went wrong – the cause of every bad thing in the world. Here we explore Genesis chapter 3, which explains how evil entered into the world.
