MURP 0066: Come And See

In this latest installment on our series through the book of John, Pastor Otte and the class discuss Jesus and His disciples answering others who have questions by telling them to “come and see” and decide for themselves. Class members also examine what brought them to church, and how we may be able to make ourselves more involved in the church in order to invite others to “come and see” the good news of Jesus for themselves.

Join Pastor Otte and the Upper Room Bible Class as we continue our study in the gospel of John. We examine why it was important for John to identify himself and letting people know he was not a prophet or the Christ, but only a messenger – a voice to prepare and make clear the road ahead for God.

MURP 0059: The Scapegoat

No Bible class was held on Sunday due to Messiah’s Easter Sunday celebration schedule, but Pastor Otte and Phil Kasper sat down on Good Friday to talk about a meditation call “The Scapegoat”. We discuss how we may discern assigning blame versus holding a person accountable, how the term hate may be used, and how, even though we all are hypocrites in one way or another, that should not keep us from witnessing to others about Jesus Christ.
