What would Jesus say to the one who has it all

In this talk we see Jesus meet a man who is incredibly rich. At one level he seems like someone who has it all, but does he?

How much would you need in order to be content? We don't usually think of ourselves as someone who has it all. 'The one who has it all' is usually someone else, someone who has things at least a little bit better than we do. However, on a global scale, we are likely to be considered 'someone who has it all' simply by living in our city.

This week, we see Jesus meet a man who is incredibly rich. At one level he seems like someone who has it all, but it still isn't enough. Come and listen to what Jesus says to him – and maybe we can find the same message of hope and contentment.

Friday April 5th, 12.40pm to 1.20pm
Alt

Most miracle claims have insufficient evidence for them to take seriously, but not all. A central event claimed by the Christian worldview, the bodily resurrection of Jesus from the dead at Easter, has good evidence to support it. Faced with good evidence, how is a rational person to respond? Gordon enters a longstanding debate about the resurrection which has used Bayes' Rule, and comes to a new insight.
