We’ve all heard the term ‘fake news’ – Donald Trump made sure we did. If something’s fake, we can be sure it’s false. There’s a true story about an elderly gentleman who was so animated in his preaching of the gospel – God’s Good News – that at one point his full set of false teeth flew out of his mouth and clattered onto the floor. With no more ado, he calmly descended from the pulpit and collected his teeth from the floor in front of his audience. By the time he’d returned to the pulpit and was facing his audience once more, the teeth were already back in his mouth, and he continued quite unfazed by announcing to his spell-bound listeners: ‘There’s nothing false about the Gospel!’
It’s that gospel of good news which is the subject of this series of mini-sermons from Bible teacher Brian Johnston.
