In my previous post I mentioned how the events on the Mount of Transfiguration are recorded in Matthew’s gospel, right between the first two mentions of the cross. A lesson to all believers that suffering, and glory go together. Moreover, an encouragement also, so that...

Mountains feature frequently and prominently throughout the Bible and there is much to be learned from understanding the specific significance of each individual mountain mentioned by Scripture. Whether it be associated with the patriarchs and prophets of the Old Testa...

As we continue with our current series, “The True Vine” we remain in John’s gospel and chapter 15, when following His metaphor of the Vine and branches, the Lord provides us with a threefold result of our abiding in Him.

In verse 7, incredibly we receive the promise of...

In John 15:5 Jesus says: -

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Therefore, the vital importance of our remaining in Christ and Him in us is conveyed in two ways. If we abide in...

As John chapter 14 concludes, so too does the upper room discourse as Jesus says to His disciples “Arise, let us go from here”. However, this is not an end to His teaching. From that which follows, it is evident that the subject of “abiding” remains very much at the fo...

Of the four questions asked of the Lord in John chapters 13 and 14, the one which, up until this point, we have spent the least time considering is that asked by Jude, referred to as Judas (not Iscariot), sometimes referred to as Thaddeus. And although that which we le...

In my previous post I traced the words of Jesus as recorded in John 13:33, where He said, “and as I said to the Jews”, back to their origin in John 8:21, which is the occasion where He is speaking with the Jewish authorities, to which He is referring. As we read the te...

And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. (Jn 17:3)

As we continue with our series “Lessons from the Upper Room”, allow me to draw together certain Scriptures from the gospel of John, which will s...

As I prepared for this Sundays message (5th July 2020), I was deeply affected by that which the Spirit impressed upon me.

In the first part of the series, we began in John 13 by considering three men specifically mentioned in that particular chapter, each of whom repres...

I was recently reflecting on a previous teaching series given in our fellowship, which I called “Who Do You Say I Am”. A question which Jesus asks of us all. The series is constructed around the response of Jesus to Peter’s answer and to his confession of Him as the Ch...
