In this message, we will look at what Jesus accomplished on the cross and determine with the centurion the true identity of Jesus, the King of the Jews.
Jesus is amazing. While He endured horrific pain and torture, He continued to minister to those around Him. In this message, we will see the heart of God in His suffering. This message will inform and challenge you to do the same through the power of His spirit as we entrust ourselves to the will and word of our Father.
Jesus continued to submit Himself to the will and word of God His Father. He never stepped out of bounds, He never rebelled, He never sinned. The depth of His commitment was seen in His suffering. In this message, we will learn from Him as both our Savior and example.
Jesus was oppressed and convicted by the very nation He came to save, He was abandoned by His dearest disciples. We hear important reminders that we too will fail Jesus, and what our response should be when that happens.
We all have a choice in how we respond to the will and word of the Lord. How you respond matters in this life and the life to come. This will be fully illustrated as we continue to walk with Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane.
In this message we will see Jesus and his disciples gathered together for the Passover. Jesus was still the Master, even until the end. He prearranged and prepared, He predicted and proclaimed, He provided and He promised. He indeed was the final Passover lamb that would receive the just wrath of God for the sin of the many.
The stage has been set for the final act in the life and ministry of Jesus before He is crucified. In this message, we will see how those who are close to Jesus respond in powerful acts of both betrayal and beauty. From these events we will learn valuable lessons about our responses to Him as well.
Jesus continues to tell us about the end of the age as we move to part 2 of our mini-series. Jesus tells us about the coming of the “abomination of desolation”: when and how He will come back, and what we are to know and look for as His return draws near.
If you want to know the future, this message is for you! In Mark 13, Jesus explained to His disciples what was to come at the end of the age. From His teaching you will be equipped by knowing what to expect and what you are to do. This chapter is an important road map for the future of humanity. The wise person will take note and take these things to heart. In doing so, you will have perspective, peace and productivity in the work of the Kingdom.
This message will continue to examine questions and observations of Jesus while He was teaching in the temple. From these questions and observations, we can rest assured about the eternal origin of Jesus. We will learn about the trappings of religious leadership and be taught about the value God places on our giving.
