The Crucifixion as Tangible History (Part 1)

The Crucifixion as Tangible History (Part 1)

In thinking about Jesus’s death, it can become easy for us to distance ourselves from events that we may believe but are over-familiar with. The historical can take on a fictional quality. However, we must remind ourselves that the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth was really real. In this study, Lenny examines the historical evidence of Jesus’s passion that forms the foundation of our faith.

The End of Humanity (Part 2)

The End of Humanity (Part 2)

The crucifixion of Jesus sits at the center of the Christian faith. It also marks the end of humanity. What does that mean, exactly? In this lesson, Lenny explains how the word "end" can convey a thing’s ultimate purpose as well as its final outcome. Join us as we explore how the crucifixion not only displays the ultimate example of evil in sinful creatures putting their holy Creator to death, but also sets a glorious destiny of forgiveness for Adam’s offspring.

Jesus and the Impact of Ideas (Part 2)

Jesus and the Impact of Ideas (Part 2)

Controversy and conflict seem to be more and more prevalent in our lives. We divide over matters of the church, over politics, over health, and even over others who are themselves fighting. In our post-Christian culture, believers are especially susceptible to finding themselves arguing against the continuing rise of decadence. How can we deal with conflict and controversy in a biblical way? In this multi-part series based on Luke chapter 20, Lenny looks at how Jesus responded to conflict and controversy in his day and offers some tips on how we can use his model to better engage others.

This last two-part talk of the series, “Jesus and the impact of Ideas,” Lenny explains how Jesus answered those who would question his position by keeping the most important point at the forefront of his discussion and how to ask the right questions to display the defective beleifs of his accusers.

It's a popular objection: If God is all loving, then how can He allow evil to exist in the world? Is God being cruel in allowing evil, or is He just not powerful enough to do anything about it? Does this prove there is no God at all? In this class, Lenny shows why evil proves that God must exist.
