The Center of the Story  Click here Click title to view sermon John 18: 1–42
Summary: Each of those involved in the death of Jesus had a story to tell. All could justify what they did, but their excuses are weak. The passion and death of Jesus leaves us with a choice as to whom we follow. Do we go the route of Pilate? Do we throw in with the high priests and the mob? Do we side with the soldiers or do we take up the invitation of Jesus and follow him? Only an honest reflection will give us the answer.

The Friday Goodness Reigned  Click here Click title to view sermon John 18: 1–1
Summary: Good Friday does not make sense. We do not always know what to think about it or to do with it. On this day, an innocent man is crucified upon a cross. God remains silent while his Son agonizes in pain. Why then do we call this day, “good”? We call it good because the cross is good. There is glory in the cross. The cross is where our king reigns, and this is good.

Wrestling With Questions About the Cross  Click here Click title to view sermon John 18: 1–19:42
Summary: The church has long included the reality of Jesus’ arrest, death, burial and resurrection in the various affirmations of faith (the Apostles’ Creed, etc.). It is important for people of faith to slow down and consider (or reconsider) the magnitude of all that happened as Jesus approached and endured the cross. The questions that were asked in the midst of this world-changing event are important for believers to wrestle with and answer before God.
