Isaiah for Today, part 3: The Kingdom Reborn

As a highborn politician, Isaiah was distressed over the failures of government.  Weary of the rulers in his day, what joy was his to receive visions of the future King.  Key passages: chapters 7, 9, 32, 40 and 49.  (Erik Pattison, 11 February 2018)

Luke 19:1-10 – The Salvation of Zacchaeus

Zacchaeus' conversion is not only striking; it's a model for our own.   (Erik Pattison, 11 February 2018)

Isaiah for Today, part 2: Writing for the future

Unlike earlier generations of prophets, Isaiah was given a message that was not mainly for his own generation, but for us.  Key passages: chapters 6, 8, 47 and 53, and 1 Peter 1:10-12. (Erik Pattison, 4 February 2018)

Luke 18:35-43 – Faith that Saves

When a blind beggar was calling Jesus, people told him to shut up. What are the voices telling us to be quiet, and what is at stake if we cave in to them?   (Neville Reid, 4 February 2018)

Isaiah for Today, part 1: The New Redemption

How did Isaiah's experience of God in the Temple fit him for his ministry?  This is the first of five evening talks given at South Park Chapel, Ilford, summarising the message of Isaiah. The key passages in this talk include chapters 1 & 6.  (Erik Pattison, 28 January 2018)

Luke 18:15-34 – One thing you lack

This young man seemed so close, but there is only one way to come to God: empty-handed.  This passage addresses several things we get wrong about poverty and wealth.   (Erik Pattison, 28 January 2018)

Luke 18:1-17 – Grace to those in need

Here are two parables, and a real life story, with this in common: people who have no leverage with God.   (Erik Pattison, 21 January 2018)
