In this session we look at some of Jesus’ most famous sayings – “eye for an eye”, “love your enemies”. These are actually three examples of how people were misusing the Law. We finish by looking at a summary of what the Law is all about.
The previousSermon on the Mount video on “Marriage & Sex” is available here.
In due course this series will replace the existing Sermon on the Mount series.
Advent is a season where we look back to Christ’s first coming, and look ahead to his second coming. It’s a good opportunity to remind ourselves that we are waiting, and consider whether we are making the most of our time. In this passage, Matthew 24:36-51, Jesus asks us to consider whether we are keeping watch, whether we are waiting well.
For the children’s spot in our online service this week, I recorded a video on the Feeding of the 5000. (Similar to the Parable of the Weeds one I did a couple of weeks ago). It’s a simple explanation of the story with a little bit to get us thinking about food! The passage is Matthew 14:13-21.
The weather wasn’t as hot as last time, and the ‘on location’ bit was a bit closer to home – from our kitchen!
Did you know? This is the only miracle which is recorded in all four gospels!
For our church service today, I decided to record the children’s spot “on location” in a farmer’s field. I thought it might help make the story more simply to visualise the parable of the weeds. The passage is Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43.
It was a really hot day – 30+ degrees – but I think it was worth it and it came out relatively well. Here it is, recorded for posterity’s sake!
At the moment I don’t have any other simple or children’s videos, but as and when I do I will add them to this category.
