    LENT 2015: Scandal (Week 5)

    March 18:  The Decision  Podcast

    (Luke 23:18-25) A murderer set free?! An innocent man condemned?! A mob triumphs over justice?! An innocent man condemned?! I’d connect this to vicarious atonement, the blood sacrifices of the OT, the Day of Atonement, and much more.

    March 15:  Flip This House  Notes /  Podcast

    Flipping and fixing up outdated houses is all the rage - it has made HGTV one of the most popular cable channels today. When someone takes one of these projects on, they often find the unexpected - shotty pipes, cracked beams, or faulty wiring. When Jesus saw the Temple he found the unexpected and was irate. Is Jesus cracking a whip and flipping tables the way you picture him? If he came to our church today what would he find and would he do the same thing? Confrontational Jesus reminds us that we too are to have a passion for what God is passionate about - his Word and his mission.

    LENT 2015: Scandal (Week 4)

    March 11:  The Trial  Podcast

    (Luke 22:66-23:12) The laws of jurisprudence are out the window! The lies at his trial - He opposes payment of taxes! He’s like all those other riot-starting Messiah/Kings! Pilat and Herod’s own testimony of his innocence. The hypocrisy of the Sanhedrin to accuse Jesus of starting a riot and then starting one themselves! I’d connect this to the doctrine of justification and how Jesus is being treated as if he were guilty and how we are treated as if we were innocent.
