One that was meant to lure police into complacency and then bomb them. The prosecution also argued that this was an international anarchist conspiracy introduced by foreign agitators.

Fashion and War in America

"Are currently in the midst of international fashion week. Yes and last week. We talked about the origins of the semi-chaotic relationship between fashion and Hollywood film. But we only got into the nineteen thirties so today. We're moving out of the thirties and into the nineteen forties. Which of course takes US straight into World War Two and on the show? We've talked a lot about fashion and war as it relates to Europe during World War One and World War Two but less so about the relationship fashion and war in America and it's actually incredibly fascinating because throughout the nineteen thirties. America's changing perception of their homegrown talent was reflected in Ariz- leading fashion magazines. Such as Vogue and Harper's bazaar at both of those magazines began to feature American fashion designers more and more throughout the decade. Elizabeth Haase reflected on this transitory period in American fashion in her book. Fashion is spinach which was published in nineteen thirty eight and in it. She writes quote in the late twenties ninety percent of the drawings and photographs. Where the work? A prison couturiers and. She's talking about Vogue and Harper's bazaar and then she says many pages and both magazines are now devoted to close created in America for American Life. The outbreak of World War Two and nineteen thirty nine mark significant shift in the fate of American designers who having continued to operate in the shadow of Paris throughout the nineteen thirties. Were suddenly left to stand all on their own and during the German occupation of Paris from June nineteen forty to August nineteen forty four. Many of the leading French couture houses were forced to close and those that did remain open did so under severely limited operations and some pretty severe restrictions as well right and for those of our listeners. Who might not have heard? April actually did a fantastic interview on stuff. You Mr History class which we featured a couple months ago so check it out if you want to learn more about fashion world war two so for the French fashion industry. This meant that communication with America during World War Two. It meant that one of their most important export markets was almost entirely broken and in one thousand nine hundred one after American designers and manufacturers presented promising fall and spring collections New York Times fashion journalist Virginia Pope well. She declared Murck City to be the fashion center of the world and AIRCON designers may have come into their own during the war but they did so under restriction and regulation beginning in nineteen forty two American fashion designers had to grapple with restrictions imposed by regulation l eighty five which were government imposed sanctions at severely limited. Just what designers could and could not produce the purpose of l. eighty-five was to conserve materials. Needed for the war effort and this included fabrics such as silk cotton wool. Leather Rubber Nylon. So you know pretty much. Every material that you need to make clothing and footwear and the regulations thus restricted just. How much material could be used in the making of new garments so we had campaign such as make-do-and-mend which encouraged people to avoid shopping altogether by mending their old clothes. Something we of course support very much today. L. eighty-five essentially challenge the very nature of the fashion industry itself. As we all know depends on the production of new seasonal clothing styles to stimulate consumerism and as we establish last episode Hollywood films while they were actively complacent and encouraging fashion consumption throughout the nineteen thirties and costume designers like their fashion designer. Counterparts were not exempt from L. Eighty five regulations during the war in an eighteen. Forty four article in the New York Times renowned Hollywood costume designer. Edith head called L. Eighty five quote. The greatest boone ever came to fashion designers in Hollywood so it would appear casts that in the nineteen forties costume designers still considered themselves as fashion designers. And she goes on to say about eighty-five quote. It vanished super luxury and brought us all down to Earth. Today we create sensible styles for women the kind that they can actually wear and she goes on to say how. Well I remember the day when we would swirl Fox skins around the hem of a secretary address or wipe satin uniform on a trained nurse. Now we hold to stark realism and by this time had been the head designer at paramount. For seven years she had taken over for her predecessor. Travis Banton in nineteen thirty seven and head like baton began her career in film working with Howard greer in the nineteen twenties as a costume illustrator before climbing the ranks and indeed head is certainly one of the most prolific and fame designers from the Hollywood golden age. Numerous books have been written about this prolific designer who April has eight Academy Awards for best costume design and wait for it. She has four hundred and forty four credits. On that's intense. She worked for almost sixty years in the film industry so she had an incredible career her first credit it dates to nineteen twenty five and her last film is dead. Men Don't wear plaid with Steve Martin. That released after her death in nineteen eighty two so she died in one thousand nine hundred. One at the age of eighty. Three head is quoted and Margaret Bailey's nineteen eighty-two book those Glorious Glamour Years as saying quote. I do not consider a motion picture costume designer necessarily a fashion creator because we do the script tells us to if we do a period piece then we recreate fashion. That was done before. And if we have a character role we do character close. It is only by the accident of a script that calls for fashion an actress that can wear fashion that some of the beautiful clothes will emerge. I don't consider myself a designer in the sense of fashion designer. I am a motion picture costume designer. So just how did head go from identifying as a fashion designer in Hollywood and the nineteen forties to firmly distinguishing herself as a costume designer by the end of her career? I love this answer. You pro because it actually lies with the advent of yours new-look which is a little unexpected as many of us know nineteen forty seven witnessed this dramatic and sudden change in fashion. Thanks to the unprecedented success of Christiane Yours Premier collection and he introduced dresses with nipped in ways. Those padded hips and full long skirts and they stood in direct contrast to the war regulated fashions of years prior which is why so many people loved them. Unfortunately for the many films released the year that this change took place. The costumes were immediately glaringly out of fashion again. Dino Dior's new look was significant reminder. That though film cost you may be perceived and interpreted as fashion it will never be able to truly contend with the whims and follies of contemporary trends. And Edith. Had designed costumes for eleven films that were released in nineteen forty seven so to say that she was affected is a bit of an understatement. Here and looking on this period for the book. Edith head's Hollywood edith reflected quote. I learned my lesson. The hard way just offered Dior brought out the new look every film I had done in the past few months. Looked like something from the bread lines with each screening. I vowed that I would never get caught by fashion trend again and became a confirmed fence sitter. Although despite her weariness of fashion trends did not keep her designs from apparently sparking them as was the case with address she designed for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun which was a nineteen fifty film in a nineteen seventy-eight article for the American Film Journal. Edith wrote my dress for Elizabeth Taylor and a place in the sun was taken up by manufacturer of debutante Party dresses. Someone at paramount wants counted at a party thirty seven Elizabeth Taylor's dancing. All studio designers have created something that influences fashion. But a good costume designer. Shouldn't try to influence style though. Naturally he hopes to hit upon something that many people will like

"That act the White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is on his way out of a job are false you're never more than fifteen minutes away from today's top stories on Arizona's news station KTAR news Arizona's the news station KTAR news on ninety two three FM get some perspective Bruce in chains and Pamela Hughes area maybe we shouldn't assume that everybody remembers the name Elizabeth smart because we need to be in like what kind of a with only five women look it up we have to go back to two thousand and two Elizabeth smart was a fourteen year old girl in Salt Lake City who was kidnapped a duck egg M. oda objected at knife point from her bedroom and was held for nine months during which time she had been raped threatened with death of a horrible story right like a nightmare like a like a horror movie she is now thirty two years old and she is a champion for child safety and you know after being kidnapped and sexually assaulted as a teenager on she now is sharing a story that that happened to her and I wonder how many other people is this how when we were for is that how many other women has there out and yeah yeah so she was on a plane okay by yourself flying alone which I can admit I don't do very often I don't fly all that often so when I fly it's usually for vacation or to visit family so usually have my husband my daughter with me but I would I would you know if your speaker like she is or if your if your business woman you know you're you're traveling all over the country during that all by yourself so she was sleeping on a plane and she was on a flight home to Utah she woke up and she says she found someone with their hand rubbing in between her legs what on her inner thigh and here's what she said I'd been asleep and all of a sudden I woke up because I felt someone's hand rubbing in between my legs on my inner thigh I was shocked I mean the last time someone touched me without my say so with was when I was kidnapped and I froze I didn't know what to do were you surprised that you froze I kept saying to myself here Elizabeth smart you should know what to do wow wow I this is the second time I've heard of something like this happening but she's the most high profile person obviously and I'm wondering what like you start off with does this happen more often are women cool fall asleep or even don't fall sleep are there the person sitting next to them on the airplane are they susceptible to these sexual assaults I'm sure it does but let's take it out of the just the the deranged setting of a woman being alone on a plane falling asleep waking up to a man glancing her yeah yeah and I think that what Elizabeth smart had running through her brain is something that most women who have been touched inappropriately have gone through their minds it went through mine you know you froze you freeze what do I do what I do what do you do it for her she's like I'm Elizabeth smart I'm supposed to know what to do he's an expert and it she didn't because you know what there's no playbook on this I recently watched the new Taylor swift documentary that is out on Netflix miss americana and and while I like Taylor's music in I'm not a huge you know takes a fan or anything along those lines I have so much more respect for her after watching that Netflix documentary thought was very well done if you get the chance folks check it out my big take away from it is these events change women and they change them in ways that you can't even fathom Taylor swift went through a very it may seem difficult to most people but she went through a situation where there was a DJ up in Colorado that what they were doing meet and greets and so on so forth he touched a bot or meet and greet type thing there was a picture of it there were seven witnesses he was fired he sued her for millions of dollars she counter sued for a dollar one dollar in went through this whole court trial it's just like I had a picture ID seven witnesses but the way they dehumanized me during this entire process is enough for any woman who it's just her word against another's wouldn't want to go through thank her on trial we've heard that before like the the rape victim the assault victim you put them on trial and you attempt to break down their character to defend the rapist or Salter not Taylor swift one yes and doll that moment really changed her life and I think what it comes down to is when it when it's a sexual assault you you guys for the most part are never could understand what that's like you're never gonna understand what happens in that moment and how you react or how you don't react in when you don't react the questions you ask yourself let alone the ones of people ask you going why did you move why didn't you say something why didn't you do this why why weren't you loud why why why because you freeze and I would only equate it to remember we had the Walmart shooting your possible March hooting recently yeah it was a what would you do in that situation we all think we know what we would do in that situation Jerry Sandusky you see something agree just happening in the locker rooms at Penn state you think you know how you would react but until you're in that situation you haven't the foggiest clue well I think about in in in what I thought about in this is as a guy who flies usually by myself I've.

"We're here to John Chapter Four. I feel like I've had like a little mini vacation because it's been two weeks since I've I've stood in the pulpit and by the way our our children's church is going at this time. Thank you curious. She was messaging me telepathically and going with the money's out the back center there and and we're going to dive into God's word together but I it has been a few weeks since I have. I have gone and an open up. God's Word on Sunday mornings we always do it Wednesday nights in fact if you have missed the last several Wednesday nights we're almost done with the Old Testament. Yes I've been here that long and we we actually have been doing thirty thousand foot flyover of the books and we'll finish with the wisdom literature this coming Wednesday Wednesday but if you missed any as you can get by Baptist Dot Com and listening to those messages or download the handouts that. We've been giving out but this this. This Wednesday will be very rich in an understanding of how God wants us to live life and so I hope you'll come on Wednesday night at at six fifteen as we dive into that but I'm excited to be back in the gospel of John where we're continuing our series through the book of John where he has given us three sets of seven seven signs seven sayings and seven witnesses. We've already done the seven witnesses. We'll do the seven sayings next but for now. We are in the the seven signs. The first time Jesus performed was that a wedding in Qena where he turned the water into wine wine was a symbol of gladness and joy and and that miracle that sign pointed us to the fact that Jesus is the one who gives a satisfying and enduring joy throughout every season of our alive that satisfies and Ajoy that endures. And now this morning John is GonNa put forward another sign but let's remember why he's giving us these signs. He gives us the purpose clause of his entire book or the purpose statement of his entire book. John Chapter Twenty versus thirty and thirty one. Jesus Jesus many other signs in the presence of the disciples which are not written in this book meaning that there's a lot more signs John. Put these signs together very purposefully. And here's the purpose. These are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ the son of God and by believing you may have life in his name so just just to just to help you understand. John's ultimate goal here. John has written this account and specifically these signs that we're looking at. He's given them to us. So that we you will believe that Jesus is the Christ the son of God and that by believing number two we will find a life in his name so the life that existed has to be found in Christ is found in Christ alone and the only way that you can find that live in crisis believing what the Gospel say about about who he really is. There's no such thing as a god of your own understanding how the God of your own imagination it is. It is Christ alone. That redeems us us and breaks the chains of sin. You've heard that you've heard that from Andy Pilgrim two weeks ago and you had man after man after man stand up here and get testimony any that Christ alone breaks the power of sin in our lives and then and then last week and the global impact celebration. We celebrated the fact that we've been called to take make a living and powerful Gospel message that brings transformation salvation to every nation of the world and got his doing that and he's it's called us to join him in doing that. And so this is. This is really just a continuation. If you will of what we've been looking at the last couple of weeks. You know when we have Sundays where we do things different. It's not like Ryan just one of that Sunday off. It's it's listen. You need to hear it from somebody else that everything that we're reading and God's word it all fits together. You're in this beautifully providential puzzle that we get to really gather around as a family as our father speaks every Sunday morning. And I'm not the father other. There's only one father I just get to be his mouthpiece. And I'm grateful for that but we want to continue this morning and look at the second sign. The first sign pointed the fact that Jesus is satisfying and the second sign. Jesus is going to perform is going to show us the essential nature of faith the essential essential nature of faith. And so. WE'RE GONNA ask questions like what is faith what is real faith what is false faith what is authentic biblical faith and what is the object of Biblical faith and so. Let's pick back up and remind ourselves of the context of this passage. And what you may not. There's no there's no dates beside the verses but between John Chapter One in John Chapter Four Jesus has been in ministry for around eighteen months at this time. You don't really get the feel for that time online because John's Gospel is not put together sequentially but he is. There are a few events that happened back to back to back. And we've experienced some of those. Because in John Chapter One. and Jesus called his first disciples and then he was proclaimed by John the Baptist as the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world and then in John Chapter two he performed the first miracle at Qena after which Jesus goes to Jerusalem for Passover this is his first Passover that he celebrated and when he goes he is he is. He is Intensely I was GONNA say enraged but rage indicate sin. Jesus didn't get enraged but he he was filled with righteous zeal. Oh you definitely a good description of it. And he went into the temple and he flipped over tables right just to show you. Jesus is the perfect example of biblical manhood manhood which is not soft and passive right. Jesus goes in and he has zeal for the fact that these people are taken the temple doc and turned it into something that God never intended for it to be and so he flips over tables and he grabs a whip and he he's driving these money changers and it's just this really awesome picture of the biblical Jesus and that gets some people stirred up in Jerusalem and so in John Chapter Three Nicodemus following that dust up comes and says says hey we want to bring you in the folded Judaism here we recognize. You know you've done some things and we really want you to believe I mean we really want you to go into to be kind of with us not against us. and Jesus engages him in article discussion. That shows that Nicodemus has no idea why the Messiah has really come this man who had all of this biblical knowledge. This extremely religious figure. Jesus says you can't can't even figure this out you must be born again. He says and all of this illustrates John Chapter One versus eleven through Thirteen John Chapter after three John Chapter four illustrate this verse which says this he came to his own. The Jews and his own people didn't receive him but all who did receive him. WHO believed they didn't name? He gave the right to become children of God who were born not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor the will of man but of God you see John is going to he. He hinted at something in John Chapter one that Jesus says again in John Chapter Three is that nickname ass- I didn't come just for the Jewish nation nation because God so loved the world that he sent his son that whoever would believe in him whoever would believe in him would not perished have eternal life. God Love The world and so John Chapter Four's an illustration of John Three sixteen because what we see in John Chapter Four. We see this social outcast. Just a woman from a social standpoint completely on the other side of the spectrum from Nicodemus this woman that nobody wants to be around this. This woman that's powerless and the situation that she's in she's been. She's been castigated by all of her peers and she's just religiously she's in a Colt and she has no claim. It seems upon any hope from God and Jesus engages her in conversation and she's born again and she receives him and she finds life in Him and she goes and that life is is something awesome awesome because even though she's had a very checkered past when Jesus came into her heart and her mind she was not ashamed of that past anymore but that pass ask became a testimony of God's power in her life to transform her and so she goes in she becomes this witness and so the the passage. We're going to pick up in takes place place chronologically right. After Jesus experienced this incredible revival their nearside car and Samaria and so look at John John Chapter four verse. forty-three John Chapter four verse. Thirty three we'll pick up and we'll continue a little bit of context here so after the two days. That's the two days. In Samaria area he departed for Galilee. Remember in the beginning of John Chapter four he set out on this mission or on this on this journey to Galley. And so he had this stopover in Samaria Samaria where there's this massive revival awakening and then after two days he departed for Galley and look at Verse Forty Four. There's a parentheses here it says says for Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in his own hometown so when he came to Galilee the gala liens welcomed him now once again. This might not be something that immediately hits you but John's using a little bit of sarcasm here right. He's using a little bit of sarcasm. mm to point out the fact that what's just happened in some area. Have they welcomed him. Yeah they have had. They received them absolutely. They have they got psyched and transformed and saved by Jesus in some in some area who were not Jews they weren't nickname us right. And so the Galileo's which were Jesus Jesus his hometown they rejected him and so Jesus goes goes from place where he's welcome to a place where he's welcomed. You get that. That's the sarcasm that Jesus John is using. Jesus goes through from a place ice where he has received to a place where people really want him to be there and the quotation marks. The scare quotes there to indicate that. And they don't want him for who he is. They want him for another purpose. And so this sets us up to ask the question how can i. How can I receive Jesus assists and have faith like a Samaritan rather than a faith like a Galleon? That's that's what this is. That's what John is doing in his readers here and so let's pick the cup and in verse forty six verse forty six so he came again to Galilee Qena in Galilee where he made the water wine so by saying this John is created a book in that hearkens back to John Chapter two and the reason that John does that does this this and once again. This may not be something you pick up on but John Chapter to the Miracle Sign that took place in John Two and the miracle that takes place in John Chapter Four book ends of the beach other. That's why John References here in Verse Forty Six. Let's think about some similarities. So both events took place in Qena. And you'll well this one on the third day right. That's no accident on the third day. So so there's there's John is creating a category in his mind for okay. Joy comes on the third day that's from water turned into one and then.

"John Chapter Twenty one and we want to dive into the last of the seven witnesses that we have studied over the last several weeks just know that that that really when we when we come around the orange table together that the preaching of the word is to really dive into this passage because I it brings us to a great place that that that some of you need to come to and I think all of us need to come to to some extent but I think Peter's particular situation will address some things inside of us that maybe we've been suppressing and just trying to hold down and and I think you're gonNA see invitation from Jesus in this passage that were really bless you and we really have over the last several weeks have seen some great invitations we began with the first witness which is the apostle John himself who told us that Jesus is the eternal word he is God in the flesh and then we went to the later part John Chapter One and saw John the Baptist Different From John The apostle John the Baptist was Jesus cousin and he made that famous declaration behold the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world telling us that Jesus is our atoning sacrifice his blood that makes peace with it over our sins and if we want that sacrifice appropriated to our spiritual account so to speak then we must put our faith in Jesus leaving him but you need to know that belief in him has nothing to do with your works and that's what John Chapter Three Nicodemus showed us is that our religious efforts get us nowhere with him if we want to be in his family we must be born again and that being born again as a radical transformation from the inside out and we saw that John Chapter four with the woman at the well is that we are worshippers our main problems outside of us but inside of us there with other people there with our own heart so we've got to be transformed in the inside which is what being born again is so that we begin worshipping God in a way that is that is that honor him in spirit and truth and that's what we all were created to be if we want to fill that spiritual void in our heart we got to begin worshipping yod and that the Holy Spirit in fact bears witness to us that we that we are born again and that's what we're he dove into John Chapter Sixteen and the fifth win this was the Holy Spirit being born again worshiper of Jesus involves abiding in him and letting his words abide in US and the spirit bears witness us that we are his we're part of his family because that fruit comes from the outside comes from the inside out so within within the spiritual part of who we are when we're filled with the spirit when we are born again the roots of our spiritual life go down deep into the Gospel of Jesus Christ and we recognize what the Gospel says about us and says about God and we believe in that then we begin to bear fruit and glacier shocker five makes it very clear what that fruit is love and Roya peace and patience and kindness and goodness and gentleness faithfulness and self control what about when we don't bear fruit what about when the we bear is the fruit of doubt and that's where we saw last week John Chapter Twenty that Jesus meets us in our doubts doubts or not sin and if our honesty brings us face to face with Jesus and his words which is what it means to let his words abide in this last witness today is found in the last chapter of John and to prepare you for this I want to give you a little station came out of our student group last Sunday night our community groups for students have been great Justin has done anomaly job leading those and there's been several hosts for those and then Shane let it last week and and there's kind of a conversation going on and I was overhearing that conversation reminded me there's something that that I shared with them we talked about and this'll hit some of us particularly hard because we wish somebody told us when we were teenagers right and we we talked about the fact that sometimes God gives us exactly what we want so that we can finally know that what we want is not what we really want tracking with that right I really I mean I had people who were telling me this when I was a teenager but sometimes what we think we really want it God says okay tastes that and see if you like it and then once we get we like oh no that's not what I wanted at all and illustration was it came out years ago with some of my daughters they found something very familiar in the pantry and that's something was in the top left at Hershey's cocoa what are they they see her she's right and so they're thinking chocolate which in the Johnson House is always a friend and so but they learned very quickly really as they kept persistently asking dad we just WanNa taste it taste it you don't WanNa taste it I promise you you don't spoonful of cocoa powder in your in your mouth and they said no we hershey chocolate how can it be bad and so as a dad I did whatever dad does okay right if you're going to be persistent like if you try it and so they got a spoonful all and you can imagine I didn't video it maybe it'd be better if I did but but we all remember it and the outcome home what you would imagine that's not what we wanted right it tastes nothing like what we thought it would taste and in the same way that's luckily what we face as human beings over and over and over again so many times are doubts are about whether God is good or whether his plan is perfect or or whether he's really trustworthy and faithful and those doubts we saw last week right if they lead us take Jesus then they can be good because we aren't a trust in him but when we talk about the sin right that we're gonNA see Peter Commit it's very similar to this situation because the root of all of Peter's doubt that lead into denial which is a sin the root of it self reliance which has been Peter's problems all along self reliance that's the that's the thought process that that or the belief that I can determine my own path I'm sufficient in myself to carve out my own way I know what's good for me I know it's right for me and it it says Hershey so it's going to be good for me and sometimes God lets us taste the thing that we say that we want so that we can learn that that thing that we think we want it's not what we they want it all and what we've seen all throughout is that what we want is a relationship with Jesus and he's the only one who can fill that void but self-reliance naturally builds a wall to keep him out we need to recognize that this morning self-reliance naturally the door to the gospel of Jesus Christ but the good news is is last week we saw Jesus draw near to a doubter and this week we're GonNa see God draw near to somebody different and so you'll have to check and see if my slides are right up there that should be the ver- Thirteenth and so John Chapter Twenty One and the good news is that there were the good news is that we're just going to read a little bit of this passage next Line we're going to try to try to just walk through it together because there's some really neat things for us to see in here this morning and so let's begin in John Chapter Twenty one verse one chapter twenty one verse one and says that after Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberius revealed himself in this way what you need to recognize is that is that at the end of Chapter Twenty the book should have ended okay in fact let's go go back to the versus thirty one thirty and thirty one after twenty you've just had the passage we went through last week with Jesus and Thomas Right and then verse thirty says now Jesus other signs and the presence of the disciples which are not written in this book but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ the son of God and by believing you may have life in his name it feels like as as you've if you've read through the gospel of John if it was like the book should end there it's like it's like that's like the you know as as the slow fade cut to black has happened between Jesus and Thomas's encounter versus thirty and thirty one or what comes up on the screen closing overture is being played to end the movie right and so it's like a hard stop jolt to go to verse one of Chapter Twenty One jd grier says it seems like it's just kind of tacked on and so why why the additional revelation well. There's been one key guy noticeably absent from the resurrection narratives and his name is Peter Peter's been such a presence throughout the gospels the last mention of Peter was him making fool with himself in fact Matthew Chapter Twenty Six thirty one to thirty five is at the last supper and we won't take time to read the passage but you have the story Jesus says hey you guys are going to betray me and and Peter says not me I mean these guys might he's real quick to throw his his brothers under the bus these guys might might might have been you but not me right and in fact I kinda pictured picture Peter Kinda opening up as soon got a sword we're GONNA we're going down you know if anybody tries to come for you and so Peter has all this zeal self-reliance right saying I can do this I've got your back I'm not going to abandon you it's all rooted in him well then Jesus says no Peter Actually your going to Nami three times before the night's over and you don't get to the end of Matthew Chapter Twenty six before you hear Jesus Words Ring Trud patronize Jesus not once not twice but just as Jesus said three times Peter was humiliated he was embarrassed and he knew that he had failed Jesus and just the worst possible way but when that rooster crowed that after that third time that night this signaled the end in two Peter Self reliance it was coming to a close and a new day of humility was gonna Eventually Dawn and so the Gospel is not going to end until Peter has been brought skin and that's because this this gospel is not just about Jesus story but it's about how his story encounters our life and one well since you can look at chapter twenty one and it's a testimony of how the Gospel is meant to be personally received it's not it's not just good news for somebody else's news for you because in the Gospel Jesus Christ Jesus has sought you you're you're the one sheep that left and Jesus left the ninety nine seek out you and so in a very real sense there's a there's a great deal of emphasis on the Individual in the Gospel and John Chapter Twenty one shows us that it shows us that yes god so loved the world that he gave his one.

"The pages of The New York Times Dennis Prager turned the author of the definitive book on this story Mollie Hemingway her book justice on trial. well he had me wait while you were writing that book did you often feel that you wanted to shower it was difficult actually to go through the interview process where people kept going through their memories over and over again what the confirmation process and like all of us to watch it on TV but difficult to go through but when you're having dozens upon dozens of people leaving their pain and excruciating nature of trying to fight against feed on cropping uncorroborated allegations but the full weight of the media war were carrying it was difficult to hear people in we've had a lot of grown men break down and cry when they were talking about it. that's not to say that they have done so or otherwise we live in the memories it was it was really awful and that's why what happened this weekend is really awful and seeing how people are not going to let it go and they're just going to keep trying to destroy this man. so let's talk about this this still trying issue. a piece the New York times press capital fit in with the privileged kids she did not about the emperor meters I I was stunned I thought she was so discredited in her charges that nobody could corroborate the last thing the New York times or any mainstream newspaper wanna do is resurrect her charges how do you explain this. well this is what the new book that that these New York times reporters put out was designed for to be have billet Tate really bad allegations that had no support or evidence and they do that by ignoring all of the many refutations of these charges allowing people to sort of come up with better memories or claim that they have more corroboration it is remarkably week it is again what we predicted one wrote justice on trial we get into this how this is an established campaign of the last two not just allow the end of the confirmation process to be the end of their campaign that they will continue and try to redefine history and we write what we all know happened so that they can feel less bad about what they tried to do it to this man they did it with Clarence Thomas the data with other judges beat now doing with Cavanaugh and they will do it again so long as they are not held accountable you know get Ramirez's allegation was weak that's a nice way of putting it she herself was calling around to our friends and saying I'm not even sure of what I'm thinking about even involve Brett capital and yet that became the somehow called for an extended investigation she spent six days with democratic turn needs to try to come up with a story involving him but she admitted at the end of wasn't sure they're entirely sure of her story and yet this is the basis of this book this is the means by which they're using Disney interview things try to destroy him and it's you know a I would like to say it's surprising it's not surprising at all and yet they admitted that they they messed up in in the fees that they wrote but their campaign to destroy a guy who probably has one of the best reputations of any man in America they just are not willing to let it go so I don't understand what of the New York times reporters claiming I don't in light of what you just said. what are they actually can they concede that Christine body Ford had no corroboration we found seven witnesses who will corroborate now they actually don't have seven witnesses who claims there were seven witnesses to was exposing himself of this party. the authors claim they have seven witnesses they have zero witnesses to hand doing that they have seven people who say that they heard about it in one form or another their standard for saying one former number includes literally that Ramirez's mother was told by Ramirez and I quote. something happened at Yale. literally something I mean that is not corroboration for a heard something such as this it was so nobody there was literally no one who claims they saw it happen. they're a witness zero yeah they claim they heard that it happened who is this guy Max dire and what is he saying. the man started not a classmate of Brett Kavanaugh as he is a former Clinton attorney he he was pitted against Brett cabin on during the whitewater proceedings. Brett Kavanaugh worked for Ken Starr in the whitewater investigation Max Steiner defended Bill Clinton they go way back their history and the allegation that supposedly new allegation the clear times reported this is actually made last year he told apparently to Senate offices and they thought it was ridiculous they didn't even bother passing it on to the Senate Judiciary Committee and when you think about what what met the standard of being passed on to the Senate Judiciary Committee you know we go through it the bark of that included such things as that Brad Cavanaugh had had chartered a rate in Rhode Island is headed gauge unification what crime spree with a buddy those things were taken seriously enough to pass on to the Senate Judiciary Committee even though they were patently absurd. didn't rise to that level this claim Fuhrman allegedly from Max fire is that he saw he talked with the people man handle both Brett Kavanaugh and a woman book quietly concedes that the alleged that the woman who is alleged to have been a victim denies any knowledge of. they didn't put that in there article in The New York Times that went viral forgot to mention that they're supposed new allegations also with the night by the alleged victim they left that out and they added a correction.

"And so there was a little boy who's in sunday school one sunday morning and the pastor was in there and he was a new pastor i can i can i can understand stand that feeling and he was really trying to gain ground with the kids in his <hes> in his in that sunday school class and he thought he would tell them a story but he wanted to describe the character of the story so he said to them he said boys and girls want to tell you a story about somebody who likes to live in the woods but sometimes we can see him in our yards anybody. Anybody have any idea what i'm talking about. The kids just stared at him like if you've taught kids sunday school it's just stared at him and he said i want to tell you about a creature richer that lives in the woods sometimes in our yards big bushy tail likes to eat nuts. Anybody have any idea what i'm talking about. Just stares. I'm talking about a creature that lives in the woods. Sometimes in our yards big bushy tail eats nuts likes to climb trees jump from tree to tree now. Does anybody know what i'm talking about. Aw and one young boy raised his hand just kind of take him out of his misery and the pastor said. Do you know what i'm thinking about young man and the kids said yeah i know the answer should be jesus but it really does sound like a squirrel to me. You know if we're going to be in in church. We kind of assume that we're gonna be talking about jesus is not we even when sometimes it might not seem like jesus might be the right answer to that story but we do we think and we know that we're going to talk about jesus but over the next couple of months i wanna take an opportunity to make sure that we're not just assuming that we know i know and are all on the same page about who jesus is and that might seem very elementary to you but if you if you if you've kind of seen the direction that we've been going doing we just don't want to take anything for granted together. We wanna make sure that we're all on the same page and so we're gonna talk about this knowing jesus and knowing him for who he said that he was himself knowing who people who walked with him who saw him who experienced him what they said about him and this will take us just. It'll probably take us at least their next february two to look gat. You'll see kind of the outline here but the reason that we want to do. This is because that question who is jesus. I think it's really the most important question question that we could ever ask who is jesus the way you answer that question is probably the most important thing about you because it's the moment the longest lasting implications and so we want to ask that question that jesus himself asked the apostle peter because one statistician cultural commentator he said this he says the flexibility of our jesus the flexibility our jesus exhibits is unprecedented unprecedented in our day and time he said there's a gumby light quality to jesus in the united states and there really is it just the moment that somebody wants to to claim jesus they just throw out that name and say well he would do that or this or he would would approve of this or that and if you wanna prime example maybe familiar with the the the plights of the colorado baker who is a christian named jack phillips jackson thirty one once at the supreme court and the colorado civil rights commission is trying to take him back there and he refused the becca cake for a a same sex wedding. Even though he'd served those customers time and time again <hes> he wouldn't bacon so very interestingly some would say foolishly foolishly jack and his attorney christian wagner went on the view and it was asked jack phillips sitting there in the midst of a of those people they said. Do you think jesus would bake the cake loaded question right and joy behar which you know joy behar dr said i think jesus would make the cake wow okay. Where do you get that from c. We just kind of we're we're just kind of if we want jesus to approve something we just say that he would approve of it just like jesse duplantis or copeland one of them. If jesus was walking around this earth he wouldn't be on a donkey anymore. He'd be an applying like. I want you to buy me right and so it's not just limited joy on the view. I mean you've got you've got people claiming the name of price on tv who are who are twisting and controlling the real jesus. The biblical jesus eases into a jesus. That's not really jesus and yet they're still on t._v. And even though they're questioned they're they're still around and that's why we don't wanna just assume that everybody understands the biblical jesus. The vast majority of people believe in jesus or believe things about jesus. But what about jesus must you believe in order to be in a relationship with god. I think that digs a little bit deeper deeper into that question and that's why we wanna study the gospel of john because in that study we will have those questions answered who is jesus and what do we really need to believe about him to find salvation as we begin this morning it'd be best for us to start at the end of john's gospel rather than that at the beginning which might seem peculiar to you but the first witness this is the joe on presents and his gospel is the writer himself john the apostle and he tells us very clearly in john chapter twenty versus thirty and thirty one why he's written but just before we jump into that a few facts about john the gospel about john's gospel john the apostle that you may not know john and his brother john were apostles which means that they walk with jesus while he was on this earth their father zebedee and their mother was some omay who was most likely the sister sister of jesus's mother mary which makes james and john the cousins of jesus yes john the baptist was another cousin but this john john was another cousin jesus in that way could have lived in alabama and so well self deprecating humor here it is all relative yeah but they were known for their loud and zealous personalities and therefore that earned him the nickname sons of thunder. That's exactly all right. They were the sons of thunder however if you notice this on a funder at the end of the gospel traded in that tunnel for a little bit different one and that was the apostle or the disciple whom jesus loved john was actually the last surviving apostle he was exiled to patmos as an old man he had preached that message about jesus christ for years and years and years so much so that he developed a very unique way of chefs such which he chronicled for us in his gospel account as he writes his gospel account towards the end of his life because the gospel of john came out around the same time as the book of revelation did he was distinctly aware i think of the three other accounts of jesus's life that we're getting in matthew mark and luke and he didn't want to overlap what already eloquently said so. He wrote down what they didn't britain say over ninety. Two percent of the material contained in john's gospel is unique to john's gospel. It's not found in matthew mark and luke and he wrote it collected it in a very memorable way every single chapter all twenty one chapters and i'll have this list for you as a take home next week. I don't want to overload. Did you the first sunday but these have all be available on the website but every every single chapter contains a declaration of jesus's divinity there in every single chapter there's somebody or something that testifies to jesus being god in the flesh but john rights and makes it's known these three sets of sevens to make it memorable seven witnesses seven signs and seven sayings and that will be a <hes> outline the kind of the meta outline of our study for the next few months seven witnesses seven signs and seven sayings and so we you want to answer the question who is jesus by looking first at the seven witnesses starting with john the apostle but we don't just want to fill our minds with facts and knowledge. We want to tonight with john's purpose for writing nineteen thirty five. John said this he said he said he who saw it has borne born witness. His testimony is true and he knows that he is telling the truth that you also may believe in this actually corroborates with what's found in the next chapter john twenty versus thirty and thirty one where he says this he says now jesus did many other sons in the presence of the disciples which are not written in this book but those are written so that you may not believe that jesus is the christ the son of god and by believing you may have life in and his name now. I think it's very very interesting that john rights and gives us what he calls signs <music> signs now think of it think of it. Is this a person who's writing and saying that they're giving you signs. They want you to do what so. What do they want you to do with the signs i mean let's let's let's think about it when people come into the doors baptist church and and we have a sign up on the wall. What are we trying to get them to read it and follow it right if they're trying to get to a specific place. We want them to know exactly exactly the way to get into where they're going. This is exactly god's intention in calling john to chronicle the signs that he saw saw in the life of jesus because he wants you to see those signs believed those signs and follow those signs to the conclusion that they would draw. These are folks on the road to take us to where where god wants us to be where john wants. Ultimately i think we're we want to be as well and if you want to follow these signs you must believe you must believe now to believe means that you are placing your faith in reliable evidence. We don't believe in a blind fay in many circumstances. That's why god is revealed scripture to us so that we can have an informed faith about whom we are believing if your thought about it that way that's why we had a revealed religion. We we had a book that contains the not just the revelation at the end but the the revelations of god's truth route throughout history and namely the revelation of god's truth and his son jesus and what john wants you to understand is that it's only when you understand christ in his personal work that you can be saved. You must not believe in something you must believe in something specific namely the truth about who jesus is but then you also if you want to when you believe you will find a life and for us understand the kind of life that john is talking about here. We must now go to the beginning of john's gospel and i want to encourage you to turn to john chapter one john chapter one. How can jesus bring life into the lives of creature who are creatures who are already alive. Let me say that again again as you turn. How can jesus bring life into the lives of creatures who are already alive. There you go that's right because i think god ordained the new testament estimate to be written in greek because it's one of the most specific and explicit languages and descriptive languages that has ever existed and so in in john one one and in john chapter twenty john describes a certain kind of life that comes from jesus and so we want to look at john chapter one verse one and that'll be the remainder of our text today to look at what john the apostle is saying about the lord jesus christ and so john chapter one verse one it says in the beginning was the word and the word was with god and the word was god you see john begins his narrative very differently than his three other counterparts. He doesn't go through a genealogy or birth narrative or any account of earn early earthly life of jesus jonga's back the very beginning and that is the eternity of jesus christ and in this verse. John is using rhetoric that shows how long he has preached. It's this message..

"News. Democrats pushing a sweeping Bill called for the people act. It's a vote this week that's going to be taking place the bills a major overhaul on voting laws campaign, finance and ethics. Jason Crowe is a or co-sponsor the money that comes into the system the revolving door of lobbyists in DC but Republicans call it an overreach. Let's get that side of the aisle. Now's we talk live with Republican congressman Ken good morning. Good morning. Yeah. What's your take on this Bill? It is an overreach for one thing. A group of special interest drafted this Bill. The Democrats are running this Bill. There's been no input. We have had a hearing on parts of the Bill, but we have not had any opportunity to sit down with the the concept is really a fairly radical concept that we will have a public financing of elections. So I don't think anybody disagrees that the system as a currently exists is manipulated and impacted by outside money, but the answer is not to allow every single person who wants to run to get public financing for their election that that would that would create an unwieldy system where people are running and the the idea that we're going to have, you know, fifteen twenty candidates. Probably what the Democrats are gonna have this year near presidential elections. But at every level is is a crazy comes up to me do these issues need to be tackled, though, are you at least in agreement with that. But you just don't like the tack that they're taking. Absolutely I written a book about the corruption in Washington DC L outside money corrupts, Washington DC. Thank you. You're welcome. But. It it can't just be going right public financing. We've got to look at some alternatives. And we've got to sit down together. This is a Bill that should be in both sides want. If it's both sides want to get money out of politics. It's just how can we do it the best way given that this Bill faces kind of an uphill battle outside of the house? Do you see it as a purely political move by by the Democrats? I think it's certainly appeals to the Democrats base in some ways. But I I I don't know that it is truly politically. I think it is there are there are certainly good motives behind the Bill some aspects of the Bill, I know today, you're going to be part of that House Judiciary hearing on dock end at the Trump administration's immigration policy. What do you anticipate to take place today? Well, I think we're going to have a number of people. We have seven witnesses called by the majority by the Democrats in one witness called by the Republicans. I think you're gonna see a number of very sympathetic DACA recipients who are gonna be there who haven't committed a crime who have worked hard who have graduated from school who are contributing. And and then you're going to see some other experts talk about the overall atmosphere and how the country would benefit from Dhaka. And then you're gonna have someone talk about the reality. It's doc. You know, we we offered a Bill last year we came. I think it was twelve fourteen boats short of passing that would have given Docker recipients and other three years, but would've had border security and the Democrats refused to go down the border security path and want to solve the DACA problem without the border security, which which would then lead to a nother DACA issue. Eight ten years from now while we've got Sean I'd love your perspective. You've. Been in Washington a little while does it feel like everything is working toward the twenty twenty election. You know, where is congress on things like rebuilding the crumbling infrastructure and helping people who have pre existing conditions with their healthcare where are those issues? Now, are we in kind of just a holding pattern? Well, I think there is more and more difficult to deal with controversial issues as you get close. And by the way, April saying that I've been in Washington DC for while just cost me about thirty thousand votes. Yes. How many years have been a few it has absorbed? Two terms third term. So yes, Washington changed. You're you're trying to change Washington. I only have to ask because I wonder at some point does it is it just sometimes to a movable even for people with good intentions. I I think it is movable, and and I am trying to change Washington. And I have to tell you. I am a firm believer in term limits because I think the longer people stay here instead of seeing this as slump all of a sudden it becomes a hot tub and people are just too comfortable. And if we don't move people out on a regular basis, we don't get new ideas, and people are just a bit very adept at adjusting to the system. All right. Well, thanks for your time. We appreciate it. Thank you. Republican congressman Ken buck live from DC where he hasn't been all that long. So we get three thousand votes back in.

"Fun with it. And he's very good at. I'm an agent provocateur political strategist controversial as you can get an incredible capacity for treachery win at all cost mentality. When people think Washington corruption, they think of Roger stone, those who say, I have no soul. Those who say have no principles are losers. Those are bigger losers. In fact, his devotion to one president Richard Nixon went so far that Mr. stone has a tattoo of his face on his back. One of the film's director Morgan spent five and a half years with him. He's a bodybuilding pot-smoking dandy swinger, and he was the person who I planted the seed Donald Trump's mind to run for the presidency thirty years ago. And I think as we show in our movie a lot of the Trump playbook comes directly out of Roger stone's own approach to politics. Roger has something called stones rules. And I think that if you look at Trump he follows a lot of them too. T? So for instance, one of Roger's rules is admit nothing deny everything launch counterattack. He is fiercely loyal to the president. He has maintained from the getting that he would never flip on the president. I believe that barring some additional development that he will stay true to that. But I think more importantly, his friendship and his affection for Trump is genuine. It's sincere. And it's hard for me to imagine a scenario where he just throws it all out the window to save his own neck. Now, David has some other stories from on news desk.
