The Village Church Forum — The Kingdom of God



The weekend of Jan 19-21 (2018) I had the great honor of visiting for the third year in a row The Village Church Institute (Dallas, TX), which is run by my friend, Dr. JT English. JT has created what, in my opinion, is the best thing going in church-based theological education. I have been thrilled to come down and teach intensive weekends for him each January. Such beautiful and thoughtful people!

For this weekend I taught a broader church-wide forum on the Kingdom of God, followed by five lectures for the Institute on the Kingdom of God in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and the rest of the NT. I then preached on Sunday at The Village Church of Denton for my good friend, Beau Hughes.

Here is the forum lecture on the Kingdom, including Q&A with JT:

Here is the handout mentioned in the lecture:

Finally, here is my sermon on Luke 3 from Denton:
