Light in the Darkness

A Study of the Gospel of John

Watch the First Session

1 - Sound Made Sight

Jan. 9, 2022 | The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Bailes

The Gospel of John seems entirely unlike the other three New Testament Gospels, and yet it is...

About

It may be listed last among the New Testament gospels, but John has often ranked first among readers for its clarity and vision. John sees and beautifully describes a Light that shines into the darkness, dispels shadows, and brings life to all those who dwell in his rays.

In this study, we reflect on John’s testimony about this Light: who he is and how he brings life and truth to the darkness and falsehood of our lives.

Fearful Tears

A Study of Lamentations

Begins Monday, March 7

About

“Blessed are those who mourn,” Jesus says. It was as strange when Jesus first said it as it is strange today. And yet the teaching echoes a truth proclaimed throughout the Bible, that mourning—be it grief, sorrow, or lament—is a common and crucial experience in the life of God’s people.

In this study, we reflect on the book of Lamentations, one of the most profound expressions of lament in all of the Bible, and seek answers to why Jesus calls us to follow him into faithful mourning.

Teach Us to Pray

A Study of the Lord's Prayer

Begins Monday, April 18

About

Regardless your church background, you are likely familiar with The Lord’s Prayer. “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name…” Jesus taught these words to his disciples when they asked to learn how to pray, and his followers have been praying them ever since. But what exactly does this prayer mean? Why did Jesus pick these words to teach us about our relationship with God?

In this study, we examine line-by-line this most famous of prayers.
