• Jesus, Our Sacrifice: The New Covenant

    A covenant is a promise. It is the assurance of what will be. So why did God give two covenants to His people, the "Old and the New?" Dr. John teaches from Hebrews 8 to compare the covenants God has made. The new covenant is not a changing of purpose or a contradiction of the old. The covenant made by Jesus in His blood fulfills and enlarges what God had promised at Sinai. The covenant of Calvary grants the assurance of justice and grace.

    Jesus, Our Sacrifice: The God of promises has given two great covenants. Today many tend to ignore the principles and patterns of the "Old Covenant." The author of Hebrews does not. The Old Covenant is mandatory to understand the New Covenant. These two great promises must be held together. 

    In this 10-message series from Hebrews, Dr. John Neufeld explains the vital value of the first covenant and its glorious fulfillment by Jesus. The pattern and practices of the tabernacle illuminate the treasure of God's grace offered to all through the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus.

  • Jesus, Our Sacrifice: The True Sanctuary of God

    Every collector knows that the real item is of more value than a copy of it. The book of Hebrews repeats this central truth. The priestly ministry of sacrifices in an earthly sanctuary are symbols that point to the ultimate ministry of Jesus for us all. Dr. John reminds us that symbols are worthy only if they point us to what is real - the full and sufficient sacrifice of Jesus for our sin. Our confidence for redemption lies in genuine sacrifice and service of our true High Priest - Jesus Christ.

  • Bible Teaching You Can Trust: Look for a Unified Bible

    To understand the forest, you can't go tree by tree. Trees vary in size, colour, and structure. Is the forest filled with contradictions? Of course not. We understand the whole by the particulars and the particulars by the whole. The same is true of Bible teaching. We need to understand the specifics by understanding the whole of Scripture. Dr. John presents his last criteria for good Bible teaching. Teaching you can trust rests on the inerrancy of God's Word and embraces the whole of God's truth.

    Bible Teaching You Can Trust: Too often, Christians evaluate preachers and teachers without understanding the criteria by which they are evaluating. We like them, or don’t like them. So-and-so is better, but he’s not bad. What makes us draw those conclusions? Are our conclusions based on the trustworthiness of these teachings, or are they based on our own personal preferences?  In this 5-message series, Bible Teaching You Can Trust, join Back to the Bible Canada’s Dr. John Neufeld as he breaks down the characteristics of trustworthy Bible teaching, and how to spot teaching that is not focusing on the real meaning of the Scriptures. At the end of the day, the Bible is centred around the one true God of the Bible. By clinging to that truth and sitting under teaching that prioritizes God as the centre of the Bible, you are most certainly receiving Bible teaching you can trust.

  • Bible Teaching You Can Trust: Look for Bible Teaching

    It is said that the best way to discern counterfeit currency is to be very familiar with what real currency looks like. If you know the genuine, the false is readily identified. If we are to recognize Bible teaching that is false or imbalanced, we need to be personally familiar with the Scriptures. Today Dr. John calls us to a personal commitment of Bible reading and study of the Scriptures. If we do not have a first-hand taste of the Bible, we can be fed anything.

  • Bible Teaching You Can Trust: Look for Truth Centeredness

    Today’s society seems to be driven by polls. Decisions and direction are determined by the voice of the majority. Polls set political agenda, marketing strategy and community development. But polls must not determine Biblical teaching. Dr. John reminds us that Bible teaching tied to the voice of a generation will become dated. The truth of God's Word is the only sure and reliable guide for life and eternity.

  • Bible Teaching You Can Trust: Look for Grace Centeredness

    Some approach the Bible like a set of instructions for life, emphasizing what we should do. We ought to obey the 10 commandments, slay the Goliaths of our life and remain as faithful as Daniel. Their instruction focuses on our efforts and abilities. But the Bible is about God's grace rather than our efforts. Dr. John reminds us that good Bible teaching is about the actions of God, not the efforts of humanity.

    If a love letter is all about the thoughts and feelings of the author, you may wonder if the letter is misguided. Shouldn't the letter be about the beloved? Much of today's Bible teaching is like that. Sermons are filled with our own concerns and problems. But shouldn't Bible teaching be about God? Today Dr. John reminds us that Bible teaching you can trust keeps God center stage. The Bible is not a "How to?" manual, but a testament to His glory.

  • Never Alone: The Boundless Kingdom

    Psalm 22 was written by David to convey a struggling time in his life. We can identify with his words when we too encounter troubles.

  • Never Alone: Finding Worth in God

    To be forsaken is bad. To be betrayed is worse. In Psalm 22 David thinks of those that have turned their backs to him. They have treated him as if he was valueless.
