JESUS IN HD
Pastor and author Dewey Bertolini (@DeweyBertolini) presents ”Jesus in HD!”
We are learning SO MUCH about Jesus — His life, His ministry, His teaching and so much more. In this series of podcasts, we are seeing Jesus like we’ve never seen Him before. And the view is AMAZING.
By harmonizing the four Gospels — Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John — we are studying the life of Christ in chronological order, from the first utterances of the angels heralding His birth, to His crucifixion and resurrection. It is our sincere hope and expectation that as we immerse ourselves in Jesus’ life and ministry, we will fall more deeply in love with Him, and become more and more like Him. As we read in 1 John 3:2, “My dear friends, we are already God’s children, though what we will be hasn’t yet been seen. But we do know that when Christ returns, we will be like him, because we will see him as he truly is.”
These podcasts were recorded at The Safe Haven, the most delightful and precious group of people you’d ever want to meet. We are THRILLED to include you in this virtual way as a part of our extended Safe Haven family. Enjoy!

Hopeful in his outlook. Redemptive in his purpose. Joyful in his heart. Worshipful in his spirit.
A man who prefers to define himself by what he is for, rather than what he is against.
Basically, Dewey is simply a guy of loves God, loves His Word, and loves people; all the while trying to keep his life that simple ‘cuz, honestly, “It’s not that complicated.”
They say that “one picture is worth a thousand words.” Sometimes, on rare occasions, one word is worth a thousand pictures. As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, this is one of those occasions. In this case, that one word is “Gethsemane.” As in the Garden of Gethsemane, that very garden to which […]Continue Reading
Jesus’ final words here at the tail-end of the Upper Room Discourse connect directly with Jesus’ opening words at the very beginning of the Upper Room Discourse.

Not to be clichéd! But if the words, “Mission Accomplished” ever meant anything to anyone in any situation, they absolutely apply here in John 17.

The singular moment toward which all of human history, going all the way back […]Continue Reading
