Passion of Christ, The

Skip Heitzig

The primary motivation that drove Jesus toward the cross was love. As a man and a member of the Godhead, Jesus' ultimate desire was to do His Father's will. This series takes an in-depth look at the sacrificial life and death of Jesus as He set His face toward the cross, walking in accordance with His Father's will and accomplishing our salvation.

In this second study of the events surrounding the Passion of our Lord Jesus, we consider God's timing. Never was there a time when things got out of God's control. On the contrary! Jesus moved with deliberate steps towards the cross. In this section, the Messiah enters Jerusalem for His final time. But on this occasion, He enters differently than ever before.

MESSAGE SUMMARY
Jesus and His men entered Jerusalem for the final week leading up to His death. Several moments were shared between the Master and His men during that final week, but none so intimate as the last Passover meal they shared together in that crowded city. It is a story we know perhaps all too well—its familiarity diluting the full impact. But it's a story that puts into perspective, the relationship of Jesus to any true disciple.

    A. Preparations for the Meal (vv. 7-13)
    B. Observation of the Meal (v. 14)
  2. The significance of this Passover Meal (vv. 15-23)
    A. The Preeminence of Jesus' Death
    B. The Purpose of Jesus' Death
    C. The Personalization of Jesus' Death

MESSAGE: In the Courtroom with Christ
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 27:1-2; 27:11-26

MESSAGE SUMMARY
After sharing their Passover meal together, Jesus and His disciples made their way to the garden of Gethsemane. There, Jesus was arrested, bound, and taken before the High Priests, Annas and Caiaphas, and before the Jewish Sanhedrin (the ruling religious court). Unable to carry out the death sentence, they took Jesus before the civil court, but the trial took on a strange air of role-reversal as Pilate and other accusers became the ones on trial.

    A. Accusations of the Plaintiffs
    B. Examination by the Judge
  2. The Silence of Jesus
  3. The Sentencing of Jesus

MESSAGE: Jesus' Final Words from the Cross - Part 1
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: Luke 23:34; Luke 23:43; John 19:26-27
URL: http://CalvaryABQ.org/2071

MESSAGE SUMMARY
The crucifixion of Jesus Christ was the pinnacle of redemptive history. The magnitude of its significance is in the fact that He bore all the sins of the world. Isaiah predicted, "The LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all" (Isaiah 53:6). At the cross that day was a crowd mostly of mockers and jeerers hurling insults at Him. But Jesus' words, even while dying, revealed the gracious and compassionate heart of God.

OUTLINE

  1. The Appeal for Forgiveness (Luke 23:34)
  2. The Assurance of Paradise (Luke 23:43)
  3. The Accommodations for His Mother (John 19:26-27)

URL: http://CalvaryABQ.org/2072

MESSAGE SUMMARY
After three hours of pitch darkness, Jesus delivered four more short statements from the cross. We consider the next three statements this weekend and meditate on the last one on Good Friday. In these sayings, we probe the mysteries of the crucifixion; we plumb the depth of Divine love. Each of these statements causes wonder and gratitude as we realize just how far God will go to save us.

OUTLINE

  1. Cry of Separation: "Why have You forsaken Me?" (Matt. 27:46)
  2. Call of Alleviation: "I Thirst!" (John 19:28)
  3. Claim of Completion: "It is finished!" (John 19:30)
