Haunted / Hopeful
Be Cleansed. Be Humble. Be Sent.
John 13:1-17 • April 19, 2020 • Brian McCormack
Jesus breaks from all expectations of a rabbi on Passover to do something typically only done by the lowliest of servants — he washes his disciples’ feet, and commands them to do the same for others. Before we can do what Jesus did, we must know the 3 things he knew that empowered him to love to the uttermost.
From Pain to Glory
John 12:20-28 • March 8, 2020 • Sean Gasperetti
Have you ever had to gear up for something you knew would be good in the long run but difficult in the immediate? Jesus did and, as it turns out, his response to that question is the exact hope each of us longs for - especially in times of great need.
Jesus, We Wish To See You
John 12:20-26 • February 23, 2020 • Nick Shafto
How do you 'see' Jesus? In John 12, Some Greeks who were looking for Jesus stand out against the gospel narrative as unusual in the political landscape of the time. In a culture where there was separate "worship" for the Gentiles at the Jewish temple, these men were a picture of all who want to know God. As these Greeks request to see Jesus, his response is that in order to rightly see him, you have to see his death, burial, and resurrection.
