It Is Written | The Bible In Four Words
Sermon from Sunday November 20, 2022 | Each of us have questions about the Bible, but there is a question underneath all the other ones: Is the story true? As jarring as the Bible is at times, it is even more surprising in the unfolding message of a forgotten word: grace. For more information about Mosaic visit us online at www.mosaicknox.org

Sermon from Sunday November 6, 2022 | Hell has become somewhat caricaturized over the past 100 years, but what is the biblical storyline of judgement?What is the surprising, good news of a perfect Judge; and how might that spur us on with hope as we look in the face of evil day after day?

It is Written | The Conundrum of Violence
Sermon from Sunday October 30, 2022 | The Old Testament is littered with war and violent descriptions of conquest. How do we make sense of this? Is God on a violent war path? The caricatures of God are actually much more comedic than they are accurate, and the patience of God is as surprising as it is sobering.

Mosaic Midweek Podcast ft. Nick Raugust: The Bible that is Our Oxygen
Zeru and Nick sit down and chat about Nick's story of becoming a disciple of Jesus. It started with men who helped him explore the content of the Bible and systematically learn its themes, which led to both helpful and not-so-helpful habits. However, Nick has encountered God's grace over and again through the realization that "it's okay to just open the Bible and meditate." A word. Hope y'all enjoy!

It is Written | Reading Below the Surface
Sermon from Sunday October 16, 2022 | The Scriptures are full of insights and stories, informational bits that are interesting and thought-provoking. But if our reading of the text leaves us with greater knowledge, we’re missing the point. A major shift happens when we allow the Holy Spirit to do a work in us while engaging the Scriptures: we go from reading the Bible to the Bible reading us.

Mosaic Midweek Podcast ft. Caetlyn Thomas: The Bible that is the Testimony of God's Work
Caetlyn Thomas and Zeru discuss her relationship to the Bible. From memorizing passages on notecards, and flipping open to pages hoping that God would speak to her, Caetlyn's reception of the Bible changed after realizing its testimonials of God's character and work are less concerned with our immediate applications and more concerned with us gazing at God's grandeur and liberating power. Hope y'all enjoy.

It is Written | Reading Above the Surface
Sermon from Sunday October 2, 2022 | We live in one of the most biblically illiterate times ever, where we have more access to study and guidance than ever before, and yet we remain both uninformed and un-transformed. What might contribute to our knowledge of God and love for God found in the Scriptures? It’s more simple and global - than you think. We continue on in our series It is Written.

Mosaic Midweek Podcast ft. Ashton Overbay: The Bible that is a Revelation of God's Heart
Hey friends. We got Ashton Overbay on the podcast today! We talk about how reading the Bible transitioned from being a chore Ashton felt like she needed to accomplish to a text of meditation and stories that reveal the heart of God for the people of Israel and the audiences of the New Testament, as well as for us, but we don't rush to its application because of the importance of understanding the Bible in its time first. I really enjoyed this conversation for a couple reasons: (1) it was very fun and relaxed and (2) it was vulnerable and a lot of honest but potentially different thoughts were shared by the both of us. You'll notice by the length of the episode that is was longer than the first two and it was because there was a lot more commentary and thoughts shared by me in this episode. It's both explores Ashton's story and contains responses of resonance by me. A few things I want to share for clarification, and we make these caveats in the episode but in case it's too long for some, we want to both express that we by no means want to communicate that our thoughts on the Bible are correct or hurt people who feel like they land in the places we don't. The purpose of these midweek conversations is to share our stories in hopes that we might communally ask and discern what God has for us in our personal stories, not so much to be right on every statement we make about the Bible. Curious musings if you will. If you have any questions or things that don't sit well, please don't hesitate to reach out. We love the Bible and we love y'all. Also, I'm aware of two mistakes that I made that could be misleading that I want to correct here: 1.) I called the angel of death in Exodus the Spirit by mistake. 2.) I said 1 Thessalonians 4:11 was the reference for "the caught up in the air passage." It's actually 1 Thessalonians 4:17

It is Written | One Personality, Many Voices
Sermon from Sunday September 18, 2022 | We tend to think of the Bible as a book; but the truth is that it’s much more like a library. An array of voices, genres and perspectives, yet each pulsing with the breath behind their words. The Bible is inspired — where we find the tension of God using human language to communicate His loving heart. For more information about Mosaic visit us online at www.mosaicknox.org

Mosaic Midweek Podcast ft. Ben Walls: The Bible that is a Mountainous Range
Today Zeru and Ben Walls chat about Ben's relationship with the Bible growing up and where he's at now. We are invited into the story of God's mystery in the pages of Scripture more than we are given principles to live by in order to secure God's love for us. Let's enjoy together the stories of God's grace in the lives of those in our Mosaic community.

It is Written | Prologue
Sermon from Sunday September 4th, 2022 | We are starting a deep dive into. . . the Bible. What is this library that we hold so dear? How do we read it? Who were the gatekeepers that allowed some books in, and left others out? And what about all the passages that make us squirm. These are the questions that we aim to wrestle with over the next semester. But we start first with Jesus; because our trust in the Bible is not found in merely the Bible’s claim that it’s trustworthy, but the fact that Jesus is both the breath behind it, and the fulfillment of it.

God Embodied | Vine
Sermon from Sunday July 31st, 2022 | Jesus makes the claim in John 15 that He is the vine. To rest and make our home in the love of God is the lifetime journey of a Christian.

God Embodied | Shepherd
Sermon from Sunday July 17, 2022 | This week we listen to Jesus who says, “I am the good shepherd.” Who are shepherds, what do they do, and why is this imagery so significant to us? Jesus as Shepherd speaks to the tired and battered and lifts up their face with his gentle hand. Through his sacrifice on the cross, for our sins, Jesus proved he is the Good Shepherd.

God Embodied | Light
Sermon from Sunday July 3, 2022 | This week we explore the theme of light. Jesus says, “I am the light of the world.” What are reasons why we refuse to step into the light, and thus, end up not reflecting the light of the world to the world?
