This week highlights the rise and fall of Solomon. His rule begins so well with his wisdom, riches and construction of the temple but it is the relationships he entangles himself in that bring him down. In John we will be reading more miracle passages and discussing why chapter 8 is not contained in some manuscripts.

2 Chronicles is an epic retelling of the book of Kings. It was written after the return from exile reflecting on what went right. What is most notable are the ADDITIONS made to 1&2 Kings. Included in Chronicles are a number of expanded passages recounting the reforms made by various kings. We are wrapping up John focusing on his resurrection and the unique stories brought to us by John.
1 Chronicles, John 13-15
May 24, 2021 • Pastor Zach
Hang in there through these first few chapters of 1 Chronicles. The books 1 and 2 Chronicles are a re-telling of the books of Samuel and Kings but they begin with a lengthy genealogy! In John 12-15 we are in the upper room with Jesus and his disciples. John has the longest record of this time together with intimate details from this final night.
2 Kings, John 9-11
May 17, 2021 • Pastor Zach
This week takes us into 2 Kings. The transfer of power from Elijah to Elisha and the downfall of both Israel and Judah. John 9-11 takes us through more of Jesus' I AM statements and brings us to one of the clearest demonstrations of Jesus' power prior to the cross: Lazarus' resurrection.
