What’s the Significance of Simon Carrying Jesus’s Cross? // Ask Pastor JohnMatthew, Mark, and Luke all tell us that Simon of Cyrene helped carry Jesus’s cross. What’s the significance of this story?
Happy Good Friday — or so we call it. It is a joyful day, even if it is the most solemn day in the church calendar. We talked about reckoning the repulsion and the delight of the cross last time. Today we talk about one of the little stories of the crucifixion narrative, Pastor John, specifically the figure of Simon of Cyrene.
A listener to the podcast writes us about it. “Hello, Pastor John! Reading through the story of the crucifixion this week, something caught my attention that I had read over many times. In Luke 23:26, amid the crucifixion event, we read, ‘And as they led [Jesus] away, they seized one Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it behind Jesus.’ I know that God is sovereign, and therefore this was not an accident or a random detail added into the story. What’s the significance of Simon carrying Jesus’s cross? What does God want us to see here?”

The Power of the Holy Spirit | Oct 3/4The book of Acts begins in Jerusalem in the closing hours of the earthly ministry of Jesus, in the period between His resurrection and His ascension. Jesus promises His disciples that the Holy
Spirit will indwell and empower them to fulfill their mission to share the gospel throughout the world of that day. The rest of Acts is the thrilling account of that mission and of the beginnings of the Church.
The New | Week 4Welcome to Week 4 of "The New". Our theme this season is "God Revealed." This week, Breanna Hardy will be sharing her testimony of God revealing Himself to her. Here are some discussion questions that will help you after you watch this week's teaching.
Has anyone experienced an “Aha” moment recently you’d like to share about?
Read: Philippians 4:6-7
Breanna shared how she has dealt with anxiety throughout her life. She gave several “takeaways” in her message based on her theme verse in Philippians that help her to rest in God’s peace. Which do you want to begin implementing in your life?
* Practice thankfulness
* KNOW God is with you
* Take in your hands only what God gives you
* Allow His peace to guard your heart and mind (don’t let anything break through the gates of peace)
How did Breanna’s preparation in the Word enable her to experience God’s peace instead of anxiety when experience in the loss of her mother?
Read: Matthew 6:34 What worries about tomorrow are trying to steal your peace today? Ask God to help you trade these worries for His perfect peace.

Who are the Nephilim?Genesis 6:4 reads: “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days.”
We know almost nothing about the Nephilim. Who were these people?
The word “Nephilim” is the Hebrew word spelled with English letters that sound similar.
The translators of the Septuagint used the Greek word for “giants” to translate the Hebrew term nepilîm.
There are several reasons for their decision.
The ten scouts called the large-sized Canaanites “Nephilim” (Num. 13.33); they were described as “heroes of old, persons of name,” which could give them a legendary sort of stature; and, again, perhaps their fathers were angelic and so they could be physically large.
Neither of the first two reasons are adequate.
The spies were fabricating a myth in Numbers 13.33, and “heroes of old, persons of name” does not need to be related to physical stature.
The third line of reasoning is a hypothesis built on top of another hypothesis, thus it is weak. Even if the Nephilim were the “biological” offspring of “angelic men” and human women, there is no way to know whether this would affect their physical stature.
The Hebrew word for Nephilim probably means something like “fallen ones.” In my view, translating it as “fallen ones,” whoever or whatever they were, captures the spirit of the passage.
How to Read the Bible: Apocalyptic LiteratureIt’s the apocalypse! But what exactly does that mean?
