March 24, 2013 | John Bayles | Setting the Stage for a Victorious Death (John 12:1-11)

The anointing at Bethany is one of the most beautiful narratives found in the Gospels. In this message we will sit among the disciples and guests at a dinner organized in honor of Jesus' recent magnificent introduction of his messianic life and mission. At this dinner aimed to present him as the geopolitical leader of Israel, Jesus is anointed for his death, as the suffering, dying servant of Isaiah's vision.

March 3, 2013 | John Bayles | Repent, Lest You Too Perish (Hosea 5:8-7:1)

In today's message we will hear again the awful judgement of God against Israel. They are called a nation of prostitution and worshippers of vile gods. Even the honored priesthood of Israel has turned away from the Lord and is leading people into the depths of depravity for personal profit. The message, though understandable, may seem quite remote and irrelevant to us who live in the new covenant of grace, covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, and living at peace with God or sins forgiven.
