As part of the 40acts Lent challenge, our sermon series during Lent is called “Jesus at our table”. Meals were an important symbol of relationship in the Bible, and today we’ll be looking at one of the best known (and certainly the largest) meal that Jesus was at.
On this first Sunday of Lent, visiting speaker Ian Birch, lecturer at the Scottish Baptist College, speaks on the Temptation of Christ in Luke 4.
The book of Jonah might be short, but it’s packed with challenges and surprises. In chapter 1 Jonah finds out his mission – he’s to preach against the city of Nineveh. That doesn’t sound like a great idea to Jonah – Ninevah is the capital of the Assyrian empire, one of Israel’s fiercest enemies.
