Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ (John Piper)

In 2 Corinthians, the apostle Paul described one of the central problems facing humanity in every age: people fail to see Christ for who he is. Even those who have caught a glimpse of him do not see perfectly, says best-selling author John Piper. But it is important that we not only learn to see him but delight in him and the truth of the gospel.  This 6-session series and its companion study guide explore the meaning and significance of these ideas.


Why Jesus?  (David Nasser)

Culture is blurring the lines between different faiths. It is increasingly difficult for people to grasp how their faith in Jesus Christ is unique. In these four powerful video Bible study sessions, David Nasser addresses the tough questions that people have about Jesus and points them back to the scriptural truths about our Savior.  Filmed on location all throughout Israel and includes teaching from Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the Sea of Galilee, the Garden of Gethsemane, the Mount of Olives and the Mount of the Beatitudes.


The Prodigal God (Timothy Keller)

In six captivating sessions, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller opens your eyes to the powerful message of Jesus' best-known—and least understood—parable.  The Prodigal God is a revelation of the very heart of the gospel: God's radical love for sinners of every kind. Taking you and your small group or church beyond the traditional focus on the wayward younger son, Dr. Keller helps you glean insights from each of the characters in Jesus' parable: the irreligious younger son, the moralistic elder son, and the Father who lavishes his love on both.  The Prodigal God will challenge the devout and the skeptic alike to see Christianity in a whole new way.
