Speaker: Lukus Counterman - When the author of Hebrews opens chapter 11 with Able, Enoch, and Noah, those three characters would have been widely known amongst the audience. They would have been positive historical figures. It would have been like walking around and asking people to consider Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr., or Nelson Mandela. Even if you don't know much about Mother Teresa, you know that she was a commendable woman. Well Able, Enoch, and Noah were commendable too. But on what basis did they receive their commendation? What we find is that it was on the basis of faith, that which starts the journey, carries on, and ultimately rescues the believer from judgement.

Speaker: Pastor Jon Kopp - This morning we are starting a new series in the book of Hebrews, and we are focusing our attention on Hebrews 11. For many who have grown up around Christianity, this chapter can have a tendency to float on its own as a museum of faithful people. It has been called many times, “the hall of fame of faith” - as if it is a catalog of inspiring stories from people who have gone before us. But, so much more is going on in Hebrews 11. As we come to this chapter, we aren’t simply looking for inspiration to face a particular trial or a particular temptation. We are looking deeply at a kind of faith that can face any and every trial and temptation with confidence and conviction about God and His Word— “a hope as an anchor for our souls - firm and secure.”

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Just as the Gospel’s prologue in John 1 serves to “lift” the reader so that he may grasp the full significance of the person and work of Jesus, so the Gospel’s epilogue in John 21 serves to “land” the reader so that he may be guided in the newly established relation with God and mission of God. Having come to believe and know that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and having received life in his name, what must the believer do? In our text this morning we learn that life in Christ is not the end, but rather the beginning of a mission wherein Christians are sent to be fishermen and shepherds. May our Lord teach us as we lovingly follow him.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - C.S. Lewis in, A Grief Observed explained that you never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death! It is easy to say you believe a rope to be strong as long as you are merely using it to cord a box. But suppose you had to hang by that rope over a precipice. Then, I guess we would find out if you really believe in its strength. Belief in the resurrection became a matter of life and death. Many disciples hung from that rope over a precipice, but never relinquished faith in resurrection truth. In the end, the strength and power of the resurrection built the church over the centuries. My friends, Jesus is alive just as he said. He is risen – he is risen indeed! May we learn about our living and loving Lord together this morning.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Jesus is the Passover Lamb, the King, and truth, who became the redemptive sacrifice for the world when he, the Son of Man, was exchanged for the "sons of mankind" in order to release them from their enslavement to sin, death, and the foreign power of this world. This text continues to depict the events surrounding the sacrificial death of the Son of God. Jesus has already been arrested and interrogated by the Jewish authorities; in this pericope, he is taken and handed over to the Roman authorities who perform the equivalent of a Roman trial of Jesus so as to respond to the legal requirements and political tension shared between them. The narrative intentionally contrasts Christ with two significant characters and what they represent: "the Jews" (representing the authorities of Judaism) and Pilate (representing the power of Rome).
