Do you ever find yourself wanting more when you leave church on Sunday? Find yourself wanting to dig deeper into the text? Well, this is the show for you!
This is the show where we take a deeper dive and look closer at the Scriptures from this week's sermon. We will discuss greater cultural context, original languages, and much much more!
Jesus - The Restorer
Do you crave recognition? If you are like most people, the answer is yes. Recognition is a common desire, and we often see Jesus being recognized; but what is he recognized for? In this episode, Pastor Cullen helps us look at this and evaluate how we should respond to Jesus in light of his own recognition as a restorer of people!
Out of the Box Restoration
In this episode, Pastor Cullen walks us deeper into the text from his sermon in Mark 3:1-6. We look at Mark and the story of Jesus healing the man with the withered hand on the Sabbath and what it means to pursue restoration in light of the spirit of the law or the letter of the law.
What is the Church?
In this episode Pastor Cullen helps us see how he defines the church and the mission of the church, by looking at the life of Jesus. He shares some insight about tax collectors, ancient feasts and banquets and what it means that Jesus eats with sinners and tax collectors.
Context - Romans 14:13-15
In this episode of A Closer Look, Pastor Cullen dives deeper into his sermon from this past week where we explore Romans 14. Pastor Cullen shows us how judgment is influenced by context. Additionally, Pastor Cullen details the situational context of Paul's Letter to the Romans in order to show us how we should better understand this letter and what Paul is actually saying!
In this episode, Pastor Cullen and Clayton dig deeper into the evaluation of Acts 2:42-47. They look at the elements of verse 42, dive deeper into the understanding of the greek word koinonia and explore further the idea of the "common purse."
