The Redemption of Scrooge, from Matt Rawle’s The Pop in Culture Series, shows us how the teachings of Jesus can be found in Dickens’ Christmas classic. From the ghosts of Christmas past, to the Life of the present, and the resurrection of Christmas future, this Advent study will “bless us every one” and reinvigorate our spiritual journeys as we look at this familiar story through the lens of faith.
For use during the group sessions, these videos feature Matt Rawle teaching in his friendly, casual, appealing style.
In Session 1, Matt Rawle introduces Scrooge, “a sad, sad man.” But don’t worry—if Scrooge can be redeemed, so can we. In A Christmas Carol and in Jesus’ parable of the landowner, we learn that it’s not the wage that is our reward; it’s having a God who will never stop offering us an invitation to be in the Kingdom.
