Sermon Quotes: "Cries from the Cross | Part 2"

“. . . his identity contracted to the point where the whole truth about him was that he was the sin of the world. He was carrying it, heaven held him answerable for it, and he was it. It was here, all of it, in his body (1 Pet. 2:24), being condemned in his flesh (Rom. 8:3); because of it he was a doomed and ruined man, korban, devoted to destruction. God’s pur...

Sermon Quotes: "The Last Word"

The Cross and the Resurrection | Part V

The Cross and the Resurrection | Part IV

In the book of Acts there seems to be a greater emphasis on Christ’s  resurrection than the cross. Shouldn’t we follow the early church’s example and  emphasize the resurrection over the cross? (Issue: Proportionality in biblical  interpretation) Interpreters of the book of Acts have long recognized the centrality ...

The Cross and the Resurrection | Part II

Christ has been raised, and so both the cross and the grave are now  empty. In light of this, isn’t it wrong to focus on a crucified Savior when, after all,  we serve a living Christ? (Issue: distorting Christ’s identity)...
