Jesus and Pilate – Neil Glover – 11th March 2018

Based on the story of Jesus and Pilate (John 18:28-19:16) – Pilate comes to the realisation that he is encountering a true King, and the forces of empire, politics and expediency are pressing him to execute this unique individual.

Jesus & The High Priest – Neil Glover – 4th March 2018

The story of Jesus before the High Priest, how Jesus is grounded in his identity (“I am”), how Peter runs away from his (“I am not”) and who God is holding on to all of this mess (as symbolised by provocation of a Rooster’s throat).

Engaging Poverty in John’s Gospel – Neil Glover – 28th Jan

This talk was born out of a puzzle – how to preach on poverty (this was our CAP service) when reading through a gospel where poverty is rarely mentioned.    Indeed the only place it is mentioned is when Judas says that the woman’s perfume should have been sold and the money given to the poor.  Jesus’ rejoinder that we will have the poor with us always does not seem to be lay adequate foundations for an anti-poverty campaign.

The response came from seeing that most of those Jesus engages with in the first part of John would have known extreme poverty and marginalisation.  Even more, he addresses the cause of their poverty or marginalisation, without ever saying that that’s what he is doing.  So what’s going on?

Destroying temples and religion itself

Neil Glover on the 21st January 2018

The attack on the temple wasn’t a mild act of reform, but an attack on the very heart of religion itself.
