Roots of Our Faith

The Jewish Backgrounds of What We Believe

Our inspired Bible was written by Jewish people from their shared history as God’s chosen ones. Sadly, many Christians miss out on a deeper appreciation of their faith and of God’s Word because they aren’t familiar with the Jewish roots of Biblical faith. In the Roots of our Faith message series, Gordon Dabbs, Ph.D., helps us unlock a fresh understanding of who we are in Christ by revealing the connections between our faith and the Jewish backgrounds of what we believe.

A Study of the Parables of Jesus

Storytelling, specifically the use of parables, was the primary way that Jesus taught people. Mark’s Gospel notes that “He did not say anything without using a parable" (Mark 4:34). The stories Jesus told were so simple that even a child could understand, yet, so deep, we will never mine all of the meaning and wisdom from them. To those with “ears to hear,” those who could picture the message of these stories, Jesus revealed the beauty of the Gospel and the truth about the Kingdom of God. Dr. Gordon Dabbs and Jacob Hawk walk us through the parables of Jesus in this series featured on Sunday nights at Prestoncrest.

In Paul’s letter to the Philippians, we find wisdom and practical tips for choosing JOY... a joy based on a relationship with Jesus, rather than an empty, ill-defined, pursuit based on momentary moods and desires.
