Session Six

"We Believe in One Lord, Jesus Christ"

Introducing the subject of 'Christology' - the person and significance of Jesus Christ. In this session we looked at how the study of Jesus has become big business, precisely because he changed the course of human civilisation. We also looked at his ministry in the context of Israel's history.

Session Eight

"Eternally Begotten of the Father..."

Continuing our study of 'Christology' - i.e. the person and significance of Jesus Christ. In this session we studied the doctrine of the Incarnation, the belief that Jesus is fully God and fully man. We established this doctrine from the Scriptures before thinking about its significance to our own lives.

Concluding our study of 'Christology' - i.e. the person and significance of Jesus Christ. This was a special session, in which we took the time to stretch ourselves by examining Church history. We detailed early Church heresies and how God preserved his truth in time.

Session Nine

"For Our Sake..." (P1/5)

Session Nine

"For Our Sake..." (P1/5)

Beginning our study of 'Soteriology' - i.e. the theology of salvation. We started by looking at God's free choice to be a Saviour God: in Christ, for us, electing a people. The doctrine of election suffers from a poor reputation in the modern Church. In this session we sought to rediscover why it is so important for the life of God's people.

Session Ten

"For Our Sake..." (P2/5)

Continuing our study of 'Soteriology' - i.e. the theology of salvation. Here we looked at the 'power of the Cross', the horror and shame of crucifixion, and how the New Testament frames this not as a defeat but as the very victory of God.

Session Eleven

"For Our Sake..." (P3/5)

Continuing our study of 'Soteriology' - i.e. the theology of salvation. Here we asked ourselves a simple question: how did the Cross of Christ 'work'? “hat was happening on the cross that saved us from sin?

Session Twelve

"For Our Sake..." (P4/5)

Continuing our study of 'Soteriology' - i.e. the theology of salvation. Here we looked at the Resurrection. We know that Jesus had to die, but why did he have to rise? What did the Resurrection of the Messiah achieve?

Session Thirteen

"For Our Sake..." (P5/5)

Finishing our study of 'Soteriology' - i.e. the theology of salvation. Here we looked at the ordo salutis, the 'order of salvation' - from regeneration and union with Christ, to justification, sanctification, and glorification. Christ the New Man, redeeming a New Humanity, that we might be at peace with God and one another.

Session Fourteen

“He Ascended & His Kingdom Has No End”

In this session we looked at the Ascension of Jesus and the Kingdom of God. We rarely hear sermons on Christ’s ascent into the heavens, and many can be confused as to exactly what the ‘kingdom’ entails. However, the New Testament places these things at the centre of the Gospel - they mark nothing less than the coronation of Jesus and the beginning of God’s victory over all things.

Session Fifteen

"We Believe in the Holy Spirit" (P1)

“This session marks the first in a study of ‘Pneumatology’ - i.e. the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. After surveying how the early Church came to a greater realisation of the Spirit’s significance throughout its first five centuries, we established one basic theme throughout Scripture: the Spirit serves the Father by exalting the Son.”
