Passion of Jesus

Unending Passion of Jesus

In a Resurrection Sunday message we look at what many consider to be the end of Jesus' suffering. But is it really? Jesus, as a son of man, suffered physically before His death. Did this put an end to His suffering, His passion, His love for His people?  

That passion continues today and is seen in the Bride of Christ, the Church living by the Spirit of God in the footsteps of selfless sacrifice for the glory of God!

As a man, Jesus died. He resurrected as the King of Heaven to take His rightful place at the right hand of His Father. He also resurrected as the bridegroom of His people, His church universal. As a man, we know Jesus experienced the full range of human emotions. Did His resurrection put an end to His ability to experience those emotions? 

Before looking at how Jesus longs for His bride and what He did to wed her, we also take a look at what the grief, guilt, and shame Peter may have experienced while Jesus lay in the tomb not knowing that his friend, teacher, and Messiah would soon return. 

Passion of Jesus Part 3

This is the third in the series examing the last week in the life of Jesus in His human body. In this message, we examine the trial of Jesus before the high priest and the Sanhedrin. However before we get into the details of the trial, we take a look at Proverbs 20:28 - "Steadfast love and faithfulness preserve the king, and by steadfast love his throne is upheld." This proverb sets the tone for tonight's message. The trial of Jesus, as unjust as it was, demonstrates the hesed love that God and Jesus, our King, had and have for us. Keep this in mind as you listen to this message about the suffering of Jesus at the hands of His people and the Romans. 

Passion of Jesus Part 2

This week we continue to look at the final days of Jesus' life as a human being. After He celebrated the Passover meal with his disciples, Jesus was betrayed and handed over to the Pharisees. Jesus was fully aware that this was going to happen after all Jesus is God and was present in the beginning when God planned all of this. We examine the events starting with Genesis. Listen and be blessed. 

Passion of Jesus Part 1

As we approach Resurrection Sunday we begin a series of lessons to examine why the Resurrection of Jesus should be of central importance to our lives as Christians.

This week we begin the journey with Jesus' arrival to Jerusalem in the week culminating in the celebration of Passover (and, of course, His own crucifixion). It is not simply Jesus riding on a donkey; there is the history of a nation and mankind to consider -- from the fall in the garden to weeping over Jerusalem and a lot in between. 

Pray, listen, and be blessed.
