July 23rd News: Jesus Before Pilate– Jesus and Barabbas

July 21, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus Before Pilate- Jesus and Barabbas

It is now mid-morning. Jesus has been to Pilate, was sent to Herod, and is now sent back to Pilate. The trial is about to reach its climax. And a new character is thrust into the action. His name is Barabbas and he plays an unsuspecting role in this divine drama. Although Pilate continues to proclaim Jesus’ innocence, the religious leaders are unwavering: They will settle for nothing less that a death sentence.

To prepare, read John 18:39-19:16.

Also, I want to thank everyone who participated in our potluck gathering last Tuesday. It was a blast with some pretty amazing food and fellowship.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

July 16th News: Jesus Before Pilate– What Is Truth?

July 14, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus Before Pilate- What Is Truth?

It is now early morning. The sun has just come up and the religious leaders now present Jesus to the Roman authorities. They begin with Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea. In this first exchange with Pilate, Jesus responds to the governor’s questions. When Pilate discovers that Jesus is from Galilee, he sends the prisoner to Herod for judgement.

As we walk with Jesus through his time before the civil authorities, we continue to see that they can find no charge against him. Yet, the trial continues. We also see that Jesus cannot be ignored. Everyone must deal with the carpenter from Nazareth- and that is true today as well.

To prepare, read John 18:28-38 and Luke 23:10-12.

Also, we are having a Summer Potluck Dinner this Tuesday (July 18th) from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the Haupt’s house (1317 Conrad Lane, Virginia Beach, 23454). If you can, bring some food to share and join us!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

July 9th News: Jesus Before Caiaphas

July 7, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus Before Caiaphas

After Annas, the former high priest, could not find anything with which to charge Jesus, Jesus is sent to Caiaphas the current High Priest. With him are members of the Sanhedrin and they continue to search for something to charge against Jesus.

In this second Jewish/religious trial, we see the frustration of the religious leaders and the calm determination of Jesus.

To prepare, read Matthew 26:57-67 and Mark 14:53-65. You will see that these accounts are similar with one small difference (that is very important).

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Jesus Before Annas

July 2, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours that Changed the World

Message: Jesus Before Annas

This is the first of six trials Jesus endures before his crucifixion. Annas, the former high priest attempts to find a charge against Jesus. This is a difficult task because it is impossible to find a charge against someone without sin.

July 2nd News: Jesus Before Annas

June 30, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus Before Annas

This week we see the first of 6 trials Jesus must go through on his way to the cross. As he stands before Annas, the former High Priest, he is questioned to determine a charge against him. Jesus and Annas have a history and this plays a role in this particular trial.

To prepare, read John 18:12-14 and 18:19-24. Also, read John 2:13-22 and Matthew 21:12-17. Although these may seem unrelated to John 18 they are not. Come this Sunday and see why.

 

 

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Jesus Is Arrested

June 25, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours that Changed the World

Message: Jesus Is Arrested

When Jesus is arrested we begin the process of the most unjust trial in eternity. We see a battle between good and evil, God and Satan. In the midst of the great spiritual darkness of those hours, the brilliant light of God’s glory shines through.

June 25th News: Jesus Is Arrested

June 23, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus Is Arrested

This week we return to the Garden of Gethsemane and find a large group of people looking for Jesus. They are ready for a fight and a hunt– expecting Jesus to run or hide. Jesus, however, does neither.

When Jesus is arrested we will see his glory, his power, and his love against a backdrop of evil, injustice, and betrayal.

To prepare, read John 18:1-11. You can also read the account in the other three gospels: Matt. 26:47-56; Mark 14:43-52; and Luke 22:47-53.

I encourage you to read each of these passages and see how Jesus moves purposefully to the cross.

Reminder! We have moved to a new location…

We meet every Sunday at 10:00 AM at School of Rock in Virginia Beach, located a block from Great Neck Rd (Corner Great Neck and Mill Dam).

Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours that Changed the World

Message: Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane

Have you ever wondered if God hears your prayers? Do you ever find yourself in a place of agony where you fell like God is far away. You are not alone. In fact, in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus fells a lot like that.

June 14, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane

 

Since January, we have been walking with Jesus throughout the Gospels. Now we focusing on the last 24 hours before the crucifixion. Last week we watched as Jesus lovingly washed his disciples feet–cleaning away the dirt and grime we all pick up in a world corrupted by sin.

This week, we will walk with Jesus to a garden outside the walls of Jerusalem near the Mount of Olives. We will see him in the moments before his arrest and continue to see how he loves his disciples– and us– “to the end”.

The account of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane is recorded in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. We will focus primarily on Mark’s account (Mark 14:32-42). I would encourage you to also read Matthew 26:36-46 and Luke 22: 39-46.

Reminder! We have moved to a new location…

We meet every Sunday at 10:00 AM at School of Rock in Virginia Beach, located a block from Great Neck Rd (Corner Great Neck and Mill Dam).

June 11th News: Jesus Washes His Disciples Feet

June 9, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus Washes the Disciples Feet

 

Since January, we have been walking with Jesus throughout the Gospels. Now we are going to focus on his last day. Typically, we look at these stories during the Easter season, but there is much to learn in the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life. For the next few weeks we will pause to listen and watch Jesus as he carries out his mission to “seek and save the lost.”

This week, we will be with Jesus and the disciples in the Upper Room during their Last Supper together.

To prepare, read John 13:1-17.

Reminder! We have moved to a new location…

We meet every Sunday at 10:00 AM at School of Rock in Virginia Beach, located a block from Great Neck Rd (Corner Great Neck and Mill Dam).
