Easter Festival – 2023

THE TENTH WITNESS — Mary Magdalene EXORDIUM The Lord Is Risen! He Is Risen Indeed! Alleluia! Dear fellow redeemed: As we left it three days ago, John had seen Jesus die, Jesus was dead. Through sightless eyes, John had seen only what mere human eyes could see, and honestly, it wasn’t much. By his eyes, John saw only a lifeless body. Only the eyes of faith could reveal that this was the Lamb of God, who had now taken away…

John 12:12–19 (ESV) 12 The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. 13 So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna!

John 8:46–59 (CSB) 46 Who among you can convict me of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 The one who is from God listens to God’s words. This is why you don’t listen, because you are not from God.” 48 The Jews responded to him, “Aren’t we right in saying that you’re a Samaritan and have a demon?” 49 “I do not have a demon,” Jesus answered. “On the contrary, I honor my…

Midweek Lent 5 – 2023

Dear fellow redeemed: “He is innocent, but I will kill him for you.” Ultimately, that is what Pilate said. But in so doing he becomes yet another witness for Jesus as Lord and Savior of the world. Last week we had Barabbas as the witness, the guilty man who was released so that the innocent remained accused, just as we sinners are spared the wrath of God because the inno- cent Jesus suffered it on our behalf. So, now that…
