Jesus does not only preach the message of repentance (Mark 1:15), he reconstructs the culture of his time, reframes its questions, reshapes its concerns, and redirects its hopes. As Forsyth says, Jesus and the early church “converted” their culture – they brought the gospel to bear on it so that it was radically changed. This series examines some of “topsy-turvy”, counter-cultural yet timeless principles introduced by Jesus and the apostles. The goal is to help reshape our habits, reframe our worldviews and re-engage our world with fresh Christian insights and godly kingdom values, both as individuals and as a church. Our “brighter and brighter” future must be one that whole-heartedly embraces these values.
