Luke 24:1-9

Can you imagine something so good that you have trouble believing it if it happened? That's exactly what happened to a group of women 2,000 years ago. And it happened to you too! 

You can borrow mine.

Luke 23:50-56

One of the unsung heroes in the New Testament is a man named Joseph of Arimathaea. He stood out as an exception both to his rich friends and to his religious crowd. His humility and faithfulness shall forever speak to his genuine devotion to a Christ he didn't even expect to ever see again!

When the world went dark.

Luke 23:44-49

The entire world was on three crosses.

The entire world was on three crosses.

Luke 23:35-43

We've all heard the story of the thief on the cross. But did it ever occur to you that the entire human race is represented by the occupants of the three crosses at Golgotha 2,000 years ago? You will now find a better representation of faith and rejection than you will by studying the thieves on the crosses.

 

Who are you struggling to forgive?

Luke 23:29-34

Forgiveness is a choice. A tough choice. But it's necessary for the maintenance of any human relationship. As always, Jesus showed us the way. Consider whom he forgave, why he forgave, and why he forgave.

The Walk to Execution

The Walk to Execution

Luke 23:26-28

I'm not quite sure how long the walk was from the Judgment Hall to Golgotha, but it was certainly a memorable one for anyone that watched and listened that day. Ironically, Jesus refused to receive the sympathy of those who bemoaned his plight; instead he warned them of a greater and more widespread persecution they themselves would endure.

Luke 23:13-25

Some things never change. Today's episode details the sad story of political weakness and its ultimate ineffectiveness. But God, as always, in in control!

Hot Potato

Luke 23:6-12

Did you ever play the game "hot potato" as a kid. If not, you're probably too young and spent most of your time perfecting the latest video game. Jesus became somewhat of a hot potato on the morning of his arrest, conviction, and execution. Nobody it seems wanted to be responsible to make the final decision about his fate. From Pilate to Herod back to Pilate he went. 

Trumped Up Charges

Trumped Up Charges

Luke 23:1-5

We've heard much in recent days about injustice and the need to reform our system of law enforcement. I suppose that many different opinions exist on such an issue. But one thing is clear in Luke 23: Jesus was subjected to a very corrupt law enforcement system. Humanly speaking, he was framed and his trial was a mere sham. God always has bigger purposes though...

 

Kangaroo Court

Kangaroo Court

June 15, 2020

Luke 22:63-71

Nothing seems more unjust than to falsely accuse the very embodiment of justice himself: the Lord Jesus Christ. Yet that's exactly what the Sanhedrin Council did to Jesus 2,000 years ago. Can you imagine that future day when the Jewish Council will stand before Jesus as their judge?
