Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: Apologetics is the practice of defending the faith from false teaching. This is what Peter is practicing here as he defends the identity of the Son of God, the Holy Scriptures as the word of God and seeks to establish the Christian’s life in that Holy word. The Holy Bible is the word of God and a lamp to guide us in this dark world. Are you paying attention to it?
Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: Familiarity breeds contempt. Some may be so familiar with Jesus that they pride themselves in thinking they know all there is to know about him. This group of people from his hometown didn’t know him as they thought.
