New Course: What is Christianity? – 1: Creation

This is the first of a six-part series where we will be looking at the question “What is Christianity?” To answer the question we’ll look at a very brief overview of the whole Bible.

In this video we think about:

  1. Why it’s important to look at the Bible;
  2. What the Bible says about creation …
  3. … and what that means for us.

If you don’t have a Bible you can get them online or via apps, e.g. the YouVersion Bible app, or The two Bible translations I mention are called the New International Version and the New Living Translation.

You may also listen to the audio-only version if you prefer.

Repentance: (2) Confession – 1 John 1:5-10

This episode is only available on audio – you may listen to it online here.

The second part of the series in repentance (unfortunately I didn’t record the first part!) The passage is 1 John 1:5-10. 

The book I mention is called “The Doctrine of Repentance” by Thomas Watson, a puritan, and – because it is well out of copyright – is available for free online e.g. here. These sermons are based on his section “Ingredients of Repentance” – the first one we looked at was sorrow for sin.

Sermon preached at St Mark’s Church on Wednesday 11th March.

Why was Jesus baptised by John the Baptist? | Matthew 3:13-17

One thing which always used to puzzle me: if Jesus never sinned, why did he want to be baptised by John the Baptist? In this next part of the series on Matthew, we think about this passage.

You can see the rest of the videos on Matthew on this page.

The podcast is available on Anchor.
