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.

Who’s in Charge Here?  Click here Click title to view sermon John 18: 1–19
Summary: It is not always obvious who is in control of events. People who think only in terms of political, military and economic power will see Pilate and Caiaphas as the ones in control of Jesus’ arrest and execution. Religious people will say that God was in control. There is some truth in both views but the writer of the Fourth Gospel has presented the Passion in a way that brings out a surprising truth: It is God present in the man Jesus who is arrested, convicted and crucified who is ultimately the one in charge.

There’s Something About a King  Click here Click title to view sermon John 18: 33–37
Summary: As Jesus stood before Pilate, he spoke of a kingdom that was not of this world. Jesus went on to relate his kingdom and his kingship to the truth and the results of that truth. How we acknowledge Christ as King is the all-important decision of our life.

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.

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.

Pilate’s Question  Click here Click title to view sermon John 18: 1–19:42
Summary: Pontius Pilate’s question, What is truth? is answered by Jesus’ silence. Jesus shows us that we access truth, not with words, but with life — his life. Truth is not something that we can lay claim to; truth lays claim to us. Through living Jesus’ life we are taken up into truth.

Belonging Together  Click here Click title to view sermon John 18: 1–42
Summary:  In the church, we are given to each other to love each other. When people we love are going through personal Good Fridays, when they and we are grieving or suffering, in the end, the only thing we have to give to each other immediately is ourselves. In the longer term, we have the gospel to offer and we have hope to offer, but in the short run, when the pain is fresh, we have ourselves to give. By holding on to one another for dear life, we enter into that sense of belonging together that Jesus urged on his mother Mary and his disciple John.

An Unexpected Victory  Click here Click title to view sermon John 18: 1–19:42
Summary: Jesus’ death culminates in his proclaiming, “It is finished.” In doing so, Jesus announces that he has accomplished God’s long-awaited work of salvation. Our text challenges us to respond by (re)affirming our trust in Jesus’ work on the cross.
