Evan Wickham - A New Temple for Everyone
It's Palm Sunday. Jesus is arriving in Jerusalem to become King, but not in the way most people expect. When the King arrives, He turns the tables on the abusive power players of His day and brings together an unlikely, diverse family, inviting them into the center of God's New Temple. (Isaiah 56:1-8; Matthew 21:12-17)
Evan Wickham earned his M.Div. from Western Seminary in Portland. In 2017, he and his wife, Sandy, planted Park Hill Church in San Diego, where Evan is currently Lead Pastor. Evan enjoys hiking, backpacking, and reading Sci-Fi novels; he also enjoys songwriting and creating music and has released four worship albums.

Scot McKnight - The Christian Life According to the Book of Revelation
John provides, in the book of Revelation, a manual of discipleship for those wondering how to live when those in political power are against them. John instructs believers to learn the art of wisdom to discern the ways of Rome (Babylon), the need for witness in both word and works, and the importance of a kind of worship that subverts the ways of Rome. What John told his churches is just as important today.
Scot McKnight is Professor of New Testament at Northern Seminary in the western suburbs of Chicago. Scot is ordained clergy in the C4SO diocese of the Anglican Churches of North America and in the last five years he and his daughter, Laura Barringer, and wife, Kris, have been strong advocates for those abused in Christian institutions. Scott is also an author of several books, including Revelation for the Rest of Us, A Church Called Tov and Pivot.
