Weapons of a Master’s Destruction

The weapons used to kill Jesus… Mark 14:63-65 Mark 15:15 Started with a decision of guilt. Mark 14:65 Mark 15:16-20 Moved to a justifiable humiliation. Mark 15:15 Continued to a convincing physical brutality. Mark 15:21-32 Ended with piercing. Isaiah 53:1-9 God created hearts to love, tongues to praise, and hands to serve. An unconvinced sinner uses their heart to judge, their tongue to condemn, and their hands to destroy.

A Sentimental Journey

The Israelites were enslaved.  Exodus 1:13 The Israelites cried out and God listened.  Exodus 2:23-25 God sent a deliverer named Moses.  Exodus 3:10 The Israelites listened and obeyed.  Exodus 12:28 The blood of a lamb was used to free them.  Exodus 12:7 Jesus is our Passover lamb.

Mark 14:4-5 Mark 14:1-2 John 19:7-8, 12, 15 Power was the motive behind the killing of Jesus. John 11:45-48 Genesis 3:6 Sin was the charge that led to a guilty plea.
