Christ in Corinthians (38 min)

PART 6 – Michael Penfold preaches on “Christ in the 1st epistle to the Corinthians”. After dividing the book into 5 sections, he shows how Paul brings two aspects of the person and work of Christ into each section as he seeks to correct and encourage the assembly in Corinth.

Christ in Romans (43 min)

He highlights the 7 references to Christ as God’s “Son” in the epistle and develops the related themes of the person, proclamation, provision and purpose of the Son.

Christ in the Gospel of John (43 min)

Christ in the Gospel of Luke (48 min)

PART 3 – Scott Dunn preaches on “Christ in the Gospel of Luke”. Acknowledging that most expositors see Luke as emphasising the humanity of Christ, Scott contends that Luke’s main emphasis is on Christ as “Saviour”.

Christ in the Gospel of Mark (48 min)

PART 2 – Tom West preaches on “Christ in the Gospel of Mark”. He brings out the main characteristics of all 4 gospels and likens Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to the faces of the 4 living creatures in Revelation Ch 4.

Christ in the Gospel of Matthew (44 min)

PART 1 – John Salisbury gives an overview of the whole of the gospel of Matthew, in which Christ is portrayed as “King”. The King and His credentials, the King and His kingdom, and the King and His cross are the headings that divide the gospel into three sections. The three titles – “Son of David”, “Son of Abraham” and “Son of Man” – are highlighted and expounded. Plenty of material in this message and ample food for thought (Message…

The Church at Laodicea (40 min)

PART 7 – Mervyn Hall preaches on the church at Laodicea (Rev 3:14-22). This was the assembly known for being “lukewarm”. But what does this mean? Mervyn suggests that the assembly was a mixture of saved (hot) and lost (cold) and thus was nauseating to God. God counsels the assembly in Laodicea to buy gold tried in the fire, buy white raiment and anoint their eyes with eye salve. The meaning of these expressions is expounded (Message preached 30th July…

The Church at Philadelphia (39 min)

PART 6 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the church at Philadelphia (Rev 3:7-13). This was the assembly that had a little strength, that “kept God’s word” and did not deny His name. To them was given the promise “I will keep thee from the hour of temptation”. They were an evangelistic assembly, before whom God has set an open door. Much can be learned from a study of this commendable company of the Lord’s people! (Message preached 23rd July 2017)

The Church at Sardis (40 min)

PART 5 – Michael Penfold preaches on the church at Sardis (Rev 3:1-6). The city of Sardis had a great history, was in a great location, possessed great wealth and was proud of its “great culture”. It had a reputation! But in reality its great days were in the past. In like manner, the assembly at Sardis had a reputation for being alive – but the Lord said they were dead. This message is a challenge to formal, dead, complacent…

The Church at Thyatira (39 min)

PART 4 – Jonathan Black preaches on the church at Thyatira (Rev 2:18-29). Despite this assembly’s many good points, it was marked by a tolerance of error. It was allowing a woman (“Jezebel”) to teach and to mislead the Christians. This message serves as a warning against compromise and weakness in assembly principles, especially as to the subject of “women’s ministry” (Message preached 9th July 2017)

Servant Song No 4 – Isaiah Ch 53 (45 min)

PART 5 – Joshua Jacob expounds the fourth of Isaiah’s 4 “servant songs” from Isaiah 52:13-53:12. This jewel of a chapter, called “the 5th gospel” by some expositors, outlines the birth, life, appearance, sufferings, death, resurrection and reign of the Servant of Jehovah -the Lord Jesus Christ – over 700 years before he was born – and caps off this ministry series on a Christ-exalting note (Message preached May 28th 2017)

Servant Song No 3 – Isaiah Ch 50 (45 min)

PART 4 – Michael Penfold expounds the third of Isaiah’s 4 “servant songs” from Isaiah 50:4-9. If Israel is the “servant at fault” (v1-3), Christ is the Servant “who is faithful” (v4-9). The challenge to the hearer to is be a servant who “fears the Lord” (v10-11). If Israel was a deaf servant, Christ is the Servant whose ear was opened to do the Father’s will, even though it meant giving His back to the smiters (Message preached May 21st 2017)
