Our Incomparable Saviour



To those who are burdened with a sense of guilt, the concept of forgiveness is certainly good news. The Bible speaks of this concept using a fancy word, ‘justification’. The Bible also speaks about the concepts of ‘grace’ and ‘faith’ as being the only basis upon which the forgiveness of God can be received. While Christians use these words and speak of these concepts often, the question might well be raised as to whether we really understand them. In ‘Our Incomparable Savior’, the testimony of Scripture is examined under a spiritual magnifying glass with the intent of removing these beautiful ideas, concepts and words from the realm of theological theory and planting them solidly upon the rock of practical, spiritual experience.

Our Victorious Messiah



When one reads the four gospel accounts, which describe the last few hours of Jesus’ life as He hung upon the cross, there almost seems to be a contradiction. Yet upon closer examination a beautiful harmony will be found which illuminates the spiritual journey that Jesus undertook as humanity’s substitute. You’ll discover what humanity’s redemption cost heaven. While salvation is free to humanity, it was extremely expensive to heaven.

Our Great High Priest



In the corporate world today, it is possible to have a 3-D scale model printed of just about any architectural or engineering design prior to actual construction or manufacturing. The 3-D scale model, made of layers of glue and powder, enables the client to visually understand what the end product will look like and how it will function. Wouldn’t it be great if God gave His followers something similar to help them understand the practical aspects of His plan of salvation? The good news is that precisely such a model was given in the Old Testament - the earthly sanctuary, ceremonial laws and a human priesthood. Embedded within these practical enactments and religious practices were beautiful illustrations that can still be used as aids to faith in a New Testament era. Indeed, Jesus is our great High Priest in the Heavenly Sanctuary today. What a privilege it is to follow Him there by faith.

Our Suffering Messiah



Have you ever asked where God is in the midst of tragedy, pain, or loss? Sometimes it’s difficult to see how there could possibly be a loving God when one is confronted with the horrific scenes of human life that play themselves out on planet Earth every day. Does God really care? If so, where is He when you’re hurting? Is God in anyway affected by this world’s sin and brokenness. The answer to these questions is absolutely YES! In this episode in the Portraits of Jesus series, Ps Adrian Webster unpacks a few Biblical passages that will reveal key concepts from the last few hours of Christ’s life as He was dying on the cross. Indeed sin, suffering, death and brokenness have all affected God in a profound, personal, first-hand manner. This amazing love and grace provide the strength to carry on despite this life’s tragedies.

Our Divine-Human Intercessor



Who is Jesus? Was He just a man? Some say He was God in human bodily form. If He is God incarnate, was His humanity authentically human? Or was it merely an illusion? In this first episode of the Portraits of Jesus series, Ps Adrian Webster examines the record of Scripture to determine what Jesus' own self-consciousness was in regard to the claim that He is divine. Also taken into consideration is the understanding of the disciples, the prophecies of the Old Testament as well as the general testimony of the New Testament writings. Furthermore, the Scriptural testimony in regard to the nature of Jesus humanity is also brought to bear on the subject. A beautiful harmony is revealed that brings confidence and assurance to a world in need of hope.
