Sermon Title

The Real Jesus (65 episodes)
19 Dec 2010 - 25 Nov 2012

Distorted, diluted, misrepresented or blatantly ignored - it seems everyone tries to turn Jesus into who they want him to be. By looking at the very earliest accounts we aim to find the Real Jesus, the authentic Jesus who actually lived and who changed the course of history. Who was he really? What is he really like? And what difference does this really make for your life today?

The Big Mission

The Real Jesus | Part 66 | Matthew (28v16-20)

Event Image
Many people think that faith is a personal and private thing, and that it's arrogant to go around telling people what to believe. However, serious followers of Jesus must take seriously the 'Great Commission' to tell everybody about him. The mission is just too big for us not to play our part.

Dead or Alive?

The Real Jesus | Part 65 | Matthew (27v57-28v15)

Event Image
The most controversial aspect of Christian faith is also the most important: Did Jesus really rise from the dead? How do we cope when asked to believe something impossible? Do we have to trade in our intellectual integrity for blind faith, or is there another way? Let's investigate....

The irony of the cross

The Real Jesus | Part 64 | Matthew (27v27-56)

Event Image
The crucifixion of Jesus has turned the world upside down, dramatically affecting theology, culture, art and billions of lives around the globe. Let's look at six ways that the crucifixion itself is upside down.

The Great Exchange

The Real Jesus | Part 63 | Matthew (27v11-26)

Event Image
Imagine spending 25 years in prison for a crime you didn't commit: The sense of powerless frustration and outrage could easily eat away at your soul. In this message we find Jesus calmly walking through the greatest miscarriage of justice the world has ever seen. As we look closer we discover there is more than meets the eye in this judicial tragedy.

You Could Fall

The Real Jesus | Part 62 | Matthew (26v57-27v10)

Event Image
Possibly the lowest moment of Peter's career as a follower of Jesus comes after Jesus is arrested. Peter disowns him three times, publically denying ever knowing him. We find this lowest point in the life of one of the early church's greatest leaders has much to teach us about our own fragility.

True Disciples

The Real Jesus | Part 61 | Matthew (26v31-56)

Event Image
The last few hours of Jesus's freedom were less than pleasant; struggling in prayer and betrayed by a close friend. But surprisingly there's much we can learn about how we can please Jesus now.

The Last Supper

The Real Jesus | Part 60 | Matthew (26v17-30)

Event Image
Despite many other differences one thing all Christians have in common is using bread & wine to remember Jesus death on the cross. Where does this idea come from and does it still have any meaning for us today? Let's go back to the very first time it happened and see what we can learn.

Pour it all out on Jesus

The Real Jesus | Part 59 | Matthew (26v1-16)

Event Image
How can I really please God? Do I need to keep trying harder and harder to be good enough? Is he always looking for even more from me, never satisfied with my performance? Many Christians think so. The reality however is very different.....

Spot the difference

The Real Jesus | Part 58 | Matthew (25v31-46)

Event Image
Here in the third and final parable about Jesus' return we are going to play a game of spot the difference. We have a whole bunch of sheep and goats... how does the real Jesus explain we can know the difference between the two? What surprises does he give us? And how does this affect us now?

I'll be Back (part 2)

The Real Jesus | Part 55 | Matthew (24v26-51)

Event Image
There have been so many wrong predictions about when Jesus will return that many Christians treat the whole thing as pure fiction. Jesus, however, tells us that he most certainly will return even though we simply don't know when. But what will his return really be like and how should it affect us now?

I'll be Back (part 1)

The Real Jesus | Part 54 | Matthew (24v1-25)

Event Image
Few aspects of the Christian faith excite more discussion, emotion and imagination than Jesus' final return. Many believers have got all of their understanding of it from dramatic novels, DVDs or websites. To help us properly get to grips with this tricky subject let's look at Jesus' own words on the subject.

Now & Then

The Real Jesus | Part 51 | Matthew (22v15-33)

Event Image
Have you ever been caught out by a tricky question about your faith, to which you have no answer? Jesus finds himself on the sharp end of such questions but reflects them back, putting his questioners under the spotlight. But other than winning an argument back then, how do his answers help us to live well today and in the future??

The Insulted King

The Real Jesus | Part 50 | Matthew (22v1-14)

Event Image
Have you ever felt upset by friends or family neglecting a special occasion? Forgetting an anniversary or not turning up to a party can send the message that 'You are not important to me.' Jesus throws that idea back at us, giving a valuable if uncomfortable insight into how we treat God.

Religious Resistance

The Real Jesus | Part 49 | Matthew (21v23-45)

Event Image
Jesus often clashed with the religious types of his day - the very people who should have been most ready to accept him. It can be still true of us today: we can have all sorts of ways of resisting God, whilst still thinking we're doing what he wants. Which ones do you recognise?

When Jesus triumphantly arrives in Jerusalem, hailed as a king, everyone expected him to act like a king. Instead he acts like a vandal, starting a one man riot in the temple & killing a tree. What's going on? And what does it have to do with us today?

Event Image
No one wants to be a loser, but when we come to Jesus aren't we supposed to be all humble, meek and mild? In a short conversation with a pair of loudmouths Jesus turns our expectations upside down and challenges us to achieve true greatness.

That's not fair!

The Real Jesus | Part 45 | Matthew (20)

Fairness in the workplace is a hot topic, particularly when it comes to what we get paid. Jesus teaches us about his workplace as we face an interview with the Boss and our staff appraisal all in one morning!

How to define Greatness

The Real Jesus | Part 41 | Matthew (18v1-14)

Event Image
Everyone desires to be great. Everyone wants to be seen as the best, and the disciples are no different. Here we see them ask 'who is the greatest?' And Jesus gives them (and us) three ways to become great in the Kingdom of heaven. But it might not be how you expect...

The Game Changer

I didn't order that!

The Real Jesus | Part 38 | Matthew (16:21-28)

Event Image
It's easy to think we know all about who Jesus is and what God should do. However, as one of his closest followers finds out, Jesus refuses to allow us to tell him what to do - even concerning our own lives. But how can that really be fair?

Tricky Business

The Real Jesus | Part 36 | Matthew (16:1-4)

The Battle for Reality

The Real Jesus | Part 34 | Matthew (15:1-20)

Event Image
Why is it so easy for churches to become boring? And for Christians to live dull, unsatisfying lives? It's because it's so easy for us to make exactly the same mistakes as the religious types of Jesus' time. So how can we make sure we don't just settle for second best?

He who rules the waves!

The Real Jesus | Part 33 | Matthew (14)

Event Image
Here even Jesus own followers mistake Jesus for something else. During intense pressure and difficulties of a storm they mistake the Real Jesus for a ghost.
