Who is your authority in life – who do you listen to? A sermon on Luke 20:1-19.
The iOS app has just been released in the Apple App Store. You may get it from here if you’re an Apple user.
The functionality is exactly the same as the Android app. Please do let me know how you get on!
This is a sermon which is traditionally preached on Palm Sunday before Easter (Jesus comes to Jerusalem as King) – but we’re going to be thinking about the question: what is true spirituality?
This is the first of a series on “Encouraging Prayer” at our church. In this sermon we look at Jesus’ prayer from John 17 and how it encourages us to pray – both that we should pray, and what we should be praying for.
Yesterday I created a new course with the videos I’ve been doing on the Heidelberg Catechism. If you’d like to have a ‘sneak peek’ at the sessions you can do so on the course page. It will take me a bit longer to work on parts two and three of the catechism (“grace” and “gratitude”), but my aim is to get them done as soon as I can.
I’ve really been enjoying the Heidelberg – it’s a great catechism and has been well-loved by generations for a reason. I hope that you enjoy studying it here with UTB.
How does God want us to use the things he gives us? Lessons from a slightly puzzling parable.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been working on a mobile app for Understand the Bible. Last week I submitted the Android app to Google, and it has been approved. I am now ready to start testing the app.
If you’d like to help out by testing the app before it is released, please do get in touch. There’s no risk to testing an app, and I think the app is ready, but it would be good just to check that it works on a range of devices!
Actually, I think you might be able to get there just be visiting this website.
I’ve decided to work my way through the Heidelberg Catechism. These videos will eventually find their way onto a course here, but in the meantime I will be uploading them to YouTube – I recorded the introduction here today. Do have a watch.
The book is: “The Good News we Almost Forgot” by Kevin DeYoung
You can find the text of the catechism in many places, e.g. this website: http://www.heidelberg-catechism.com/en/
They say “A picture is worth a thousand words” – well in this case, we are given a picture of salvation.
A bit of housekeeping: I am starting to move the courses away from YouTube. I will keep some content available on the YouTube channel, but all of the course content on this website will be served from elsewhere. This is partly because I’ve become uncomfortable with using YouTube for something like this, and partly because I needed somewhere to store audio files as well as videos.
All videos should now have an audio equivalent (hooray!). I have also removed some of the courses which didn’t quite ‘fit’ with UTB at the moment – e.g. the Biblical series. (They will remain available on YouTube).
If you have any problems, please let me know!
