Jesus and the Spirit: An Interview With Myk Habets

This interview was originally done for the video series titled You’re Included. The technical quality was not sufficient for it to be included in that series, but we have been able to transcribe the interview.

Mike Morrison: You mentioned that Jesus was the Messiah, which means “The Anointed One.” That made me think – anointed with what? The name “Messiah” is reminding us of the role of the Spirit, the importance of the Spirit and who this person is. How does this help us in our Christian walk?

What the Gospels Teach Us About Jesus

It is difficult to summarize in this short space what the Gospels say about Jesus Christ. These four books contain more than 100 pages of information about Jesus, and so much of it seems important. Perhaps we can summarize the Gospels by looking at three questions: 1) Who is this person? 2) What did he do? 3) What does he mean for us today?

When you hear the word God, what image comes to mind?

If you're like most people, you probably think of a solitary figure somewhere in the sky.  To some, he's a harsh Judge, meting out divine rewards and punishments on everyone based on how well they measure up to his high standards of living.

What Child Is This? A Study of Luke 2:22-52

Luke reports two events between Jesus’ birth and the beginning of his ministry. These are not reported out of idle curiosity, however—both events point forward to his importance in God’s plan of salvation. Remarkable prophecies were spoken when Jesus was presented to the Lord, and Jesus himself alluded to a special role when he was coming of age.

Introduction: St. Andrews, Scotland, is well known as the birthplace of golf some 600 years ago. Here also stand the 850-year-old ruins of the Cathedral of St. Andrew, three of whose 100-feet-high towers rise majestically over the east end of the city. Nearby, the esteemed University of St. Andrews, founded in 1413, is the home of St. Mary’s College, the university’s renowned divinity school, which still uses its 16th-century buildings.
