Project Description

GUILT & INNOCENCE

Speaker: Rev. Andrew Berry

The 3D gospel is an expression that many use to show that the Gospel – The Good News about Jesus (Mark1:1) – is good news for all cultures.  We will look at 3 stories in the Gospel of John to show that Jesus work – his life and death, resurrection and Holy Spirit-Sender affect all cultures.

This week we want to look at the women ‘caught ‘ in adultery (John 8:1-11) and show that Jesus confronts a Guilt/Innocence culture based on the ‘law of Moses’ so that through Grace and Truth in Him, there is no condemnation for that which separates us from the Life of God (Eph 4:18)

HONOUR & SHAME

Speaker: Rev. Timothy D. Berry

The 3D gospel is an expression that many use to show that the Gospel – The Good News about Jesus (Mark1:1) – is good news for all cultures. We will look at 3 stories in the Gospel of John to show that Jesus work – his life and death, resurrection and Holy Spirit-Sender affect all cultures.

This week we look at the healing of the man blind from birth (John 9v1-41) and show that sinful humanity is trapped in the shame of spiritual and physical blindness. Jesus is the Light of the World who comes into the darkness to heal and restore and whoever honours him does not come into judgement, but passes from death to life.

FEAR & POWER

Speaker: Rev. Timothy D. Berry

The 3D Gospel is an expression that many use to show that the Gospel – The Good News about Jesus (Mark 1:1) – is good news for all cultures. We will look at 3 stories in the Gospel of John to show that Jesus work – his life and death, resurrection and Holy Spirit-Sender affect all cultures.

John 11v1-44

As we look at the story of Lazarus this Sunday, we discover that Jesus is the one we need to trust. Faith, ultimately, is not about what or how much you know, but about WHO you know. Jesus, himself, is the resurrection and the life. He frees us from sin, fear, and death.

SIGNIFICANCE ACCEPTANCE & ACHIEVEMENT

Speaker: Rev. Andrew Berry

We have been looking at 3 different encounters in the gospel of John to show that an encounter with Jesus as Lord is what makes Him relevant to all cultures: An honour/shame culture, a power/fear culture and a guilt/innocence culture.

We want to conclude the series by looking in Genesis 1:26-2:14 and see the roots of mankind’s rebellion against His maker.  To see how God’s design for us to have Significance, Acceptance and Achievement result in these different cultural patterns so that our relationship with him and others  has been twisted and distorted so that we are ‘alienated from the life of God’ (Eph 4:18)
