The Torture and Humiliation of the King

This sermon looks at the torture and mocking of Jesus. Although it was meant to belittle him we find that it in fact further confirmed his true identity.

Jesus, Barabbas, and Pilate

In this fourth sermon in Lent we encounter Jesus and Barabbas in front of Pilate. We take some time to discern who each of these persons are and come to realize that only by the grace of God are any of us pardoned by the act of Jesus taking our place.

Condemned by the Righteous

In this fourth sermon in the Lenten series we follow Jesus through his trial by the Pharisees and rulers of the law.
Ultimately we find Jesus is proclaimed guilty because of his clear claim to be the God the Messiah.
Do we act like the Pharisees when we act in ways that condemn Jesus?

The Garden of Gethsemane

This sermon is the second in the series that follows Jesus through the last 24 hours of his life on earth.
Today we follow Jesus from the upper room where he celebrated the Passover meal with his disciples to the Garden where he prayed asking his Father to take this cup from him. (the cross)

The Last Supper

This week we begin the season of Lent. During these five weeks we will follow Jesus through the last 24 hours of his life. Today we begin by looking at that Last Supper / Passover meal that Jesus celebrated with his disciples. You will learn more details about the traditional Seder meal, and learn the significance of what it meant when Jesus said "This is my body... this is my blood"

Marathon Marriage

This is the final sermon in our Marriage series. In it we talk about what it takes to maintain a long-term marriage; to see it through the good and the bad times.
Jody and I were in Jerusalem during this week, but we were able to present this sermon via a prerecorded sermon. The discussion format makes it a fun way to address some of the most challenging issues of Love and long-term sacrifice.
We hope that this series blesses you and your marriage.

Marriage Vows

Ok, I am playing catch up with getting these audio sermons online. I have had many people comment about how much they appreciated this series, and several have asked why the last couple are not online yet. So here you go.

I might mention that this 4th sermon in the Marriage series focuses on the covenant of the marriage vows. In it we look at the famous Love chapter I Corinthians 13. Those who have been married for a few years can look back and see how things are different than what they were when they stood before the altar and made their vows. What does it mean to keep those vows even when you simply don't feel like it. How do we define Love?
