Speaker: Lukus Counterman - From the beginning of the signs that Christ performed, he was displaying his glory (John 2:11). He was revealing the Father through his words and works yet he received no general credence. This reluctance to come to the light was shown by the very people who had been prepared over the centuries for the coming of the light. So, what happened? Did Jesus fail in his mission to the world? In the closing of John 12, the apostle takes time to answer that question. In spite of way Jesus was rejected, John highlights his radiance and presents one final public call for people to be redeemed. 79npx9uq

John 12:20-36 is unique among the Gospels. The narrative describes a group of Greeks coming to celebrate Passover and they request an audience with Jesus. They want to “see” him. But when the disciples inquire about the potential interview, Christ does not appear to directly address the request. He begins to talk about how his “hour has come.” What does that mean? The hour has come for what? Jesus goes on to describe his death on the cross. Upon closer inspection, the discourse does concern the Greeks. If the Gentiles were ever going to truly “see” Jesus, then he needed to be crucified and glorified. Jesus’ death was necessary before the full-fledged Gentile mission could begin. And so, when Jesus speaks of “the hour” or “the time” he is introducing a major event in the redemptive history of mankind – namely, the cross. May the Lord teach us of his sacrifice, death, and glory this morning as we reflect on his crucifixion.

John’s narrative suddenly shifts from the fragrant banquet room in Bethany to a bustling street leading into Jerusalem, where thronging worshipers have come in anticipation of the Passover feast. As with other feasts, worshipers wondered if Jesus would attend and eagerly watched for his arrival. Upon His arrival, they lined His path to the city with palm branches and clothes, shouting “Hosanna!” which means, “Save us.” Their shouts included words form a messianic psalm (Psalm 118). Jesus had entered the city of Jerusalem many times during His ministry, but this “triumphal entry” to the capital city of the Hebrew nation differed in one primary respect. He no longer visited as a worshiper; this day He claimed it as King. Unlike a conquering warrior king, however, Jesus entered the city on a symbol of peace, a lowly donkey. The nature of this king far different they expected and offered a salvation that was deeper than they knew. May God help us to see Jesus as the one true king!

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Jesus is worthy enough to be extravagantly anointed as king on a throne but loving enough to be prepared for death on a cross. Christian discipleship involves humble service to the King, valuing all things and activities by their ability to express honor to Christ. In John 12 we see some of the key elements in a relationship with Jesus – serving, loving, following, and honoring him. May the Lord teach us to be rightly related to him.

Speaker: Jotham Manoranjan - Feasts and festival often reveals what a culture celebrates and values. Most of the Jewish festivals were instituted by God, and had very clear purposes. Through this class we will study each of the nine Jewish feasts that existed during the earthly ministry of Christ, beginning today with Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. We will study the origins of the feasts, the rituals and practices that surrounded them, and ultimately how each of the festival pointed towards redemption through and fulfillment in Jesus the Christ.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - As tensions rise in Jerusalem, Jesus becomes a dividing line. His person and works disrupt the status quo such that people must choose to receive him or reject him. The religious leaders feel threatened by this miracle worker, so they seek to make Jesus a scapegoat and have him killed before Rome abolishes their privilege and freedom. They thought that getting rid of Jesus would stabilize Judaism and destroy Christianity, but in the end, it accomplished the exact opposite. The death of Jesus unified his followers and formed a new community known as the church. Jewish nationalism backfired and Rome eventually destroyed the temple and overran Jerusalem. Here in John 11, we encounter a turning point, one that highlights the ultimate significance of Jesus’ death.
