West Ridge Community Church

Whos Gotta Give?

Thanks for your interest in the “Pharisees…” message series.  Last Sunday’s message dealt with how the Pharisees responded to those who were weak.


This week’s message will wrestle with how the Pharisees pursued promotion.  Part of what we will be discussing can be found in this journal entry from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.  http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/insights/why-feelings-guilt-may-signal-leadership-potential


We will also be reading from Luke chapter 18, verses 9 – 14.  You can check Luke 18:9-14 out here: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=luke+18%3A9-14&version=NIV


Some thoughts from “Pharisees…” will be taken from Larry Osborne’s readable book “Accidental Pharisees” here http://www.amazon.com/dp/0310494443/?tag=googhydr-20&hvadid=32574958111&hvpos=1t1&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6152182934646202656&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=c&ref=pd_sl_68t8qpys95_b


Additional material will be drawn from N.T. Wright’s magisterial work “Jesus and the Victory of God, Vol. 1”
