How would you want to be captured in a portrait? What would you include? What would you omit? And when that portrait was finished, would you still be recognised by those who knew you?

In the wake of three baptisms, special guest Bishop Kate Prowd brings us this week's talk on the nearness of God even in the darkness of life and how we can reflect who Jesus is just as he reflects us in the suffering that he faced.

This week, Tim rounds out the series by looking at one final interaction where Jesus is once again approached with a question. But this time, there is no trickery, just an earnest teacher of the law seeking an answer.

Death is inevitable, whether we often think about it or not, and that can be troubling. But have any of us got reason to believe there is more to life than just our physical existence? And if so, how confident can we really be?

This week, Tim brings us the next group of opponents: the Sadducees, as they approach Jesus with their intricately woven questions on death and the possibility of resurrection, while also exploring what hope we might have in the face of death.
