Can you find Christmas lights bright enough for 2021?

The Understand the Bible Christmas message for 2021!

Taking a break

I’ll be taking a break from Understand the Bible over the Christmas period, and will return in the New Year. I am planning to start a new series on the Ten Commandments, to follow on from the Apostle’s Creed which finished last month.

I feel that this year has been a good year for Understand the Bible, thank you to everyone who has helped by watching, subscribing, commenting, sending encouraging messages, and so on. I pray that 2022 will be a good year and that the Word of God may continue to spread and flourish (Acts 12:24).

Last year’s Christmas message is still available to watch, Whose fault is 2020?

All Christmas content on Understand the Bible is under the Christmas category. This includes the recent series on being ready for the return of Christ (which is also available on a YouTube playlist).

Whose fault is 2020? – Christmas Message

Someone recently described 2020 as the worst year in their lifetime. Maybe you feel like that too. Coronavirus and lockdowns, BLM, politics, division, it’s all kicked off. But who is at fault? Who is to blame for 2020? And what does the Bible have to say about it?

Taking a break

I will be taking a break over the next couple of weeks. This means no Regular features such as Learn to read the Bible or Thought for the week. All regular content will be returning in early January.

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported Understand the Bible in every way over this past year – I appreciate it so much. I feel like God has blessed the ministry over this past year, and I am looking forward to seeing the way he wants UTB to develop over the coming year.

All that remains is to wish you all a very happy Christmas and new year, and I pray God’s blessings upon each and every one of you. May he keep you safe and be your guide now and ever more.

A surprising Saviour – Micah 5:1-5 Sermon

Micah 5 is the prophecy of a Saviour who might surprise us. The Saviour prophesied here looks very different from the way we might have imagined him to be, in many different ways.

From darkness to light – Isaiah 60 Sermon

It seems like we are living in dark days at the moment. 2020 has been a very strange year for everyone. But there have been dark times before. The people of Israel in the Old Testament experienced lots of dark times – yet Isaiah here prophecied of how that darkness would turn to light.

This sermon looks at the darkness, the light, and how God was going to bring them from one to the other. The good news is, it’s something which is for us as well!
