Anointing and Opportunity

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.

The End of the Age Part 2

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.

The End of the Age Part 1

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.

Questions and Observations Part 2

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.

Questions and Observations, Part 1

The religious leaders were looking to destroy Jesus. They hoped to do so by trapping Him in His word by asking Him controversial and difficult questions. From these questions and Jesus’ answers, we are instructed and informed about paying taxes, the resurrection, and the most important commandment. We will be best served by aligning our lives to these truths.

Entering Jerusalem

In understanding that Jesus is the prince of the prophets and the prince of the people you are invited to join in the processional shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!” (Mark 11:9-10).
