“How Sweet the Sound…”

“Perhaps the time has come…”

As you will hear in this PODCAST, perhaps the time has come for you…

“Perhaps the time has come for me to do what?” you may ask.

The answer to that question will free you and me in ways that we can only imagine.

Enjoy!!!

The Antonia

His name was Pontius Pilate. And as you will hear in this PODCAST, he was not a nice man.

This is the man to whom Jesus was handed over to be crucified.

This is the man who will live long in infamy.

This is the man who caved to political pressure in order to preserve his position of power, even if it meant crucifying an innocent man who though He was God, held no position.

This is the man who metaphorically drove the nails into Jesus’ hands and feet, and a stake through the heart of Peter. Peter, whose faith would fail spectacularly in the face of Jesus’ trumped-up charges.

There is a lot going on here, every salient detail of which will enhance your Easter season enormously.

May God bless you richly as you listen.

Caiaphas’ House

In our run-up to Easter, please join us in this week’s PODCAST as we follow Jesus step-by-step on this Virtual Israel Study Tour through the final hours of Jesus’ life.

Last week, we joined Peter in the seclusion of the Garden of Gethsemane. This week, we’ll meet again in the courtyard of the High Priest.

The Jesus No One Can Ignore

Peter heard it.

Peter heard it as Jesus taught it.

Matthew referred to it as “this parable.”

As you are about to hear in this PODCAST, as Jesus taught “this parable,” He effectively signed His own death warrant.

After “this parable,” nothing would ever be the same again.

It certainly left a lasting and indelible impression on the mind and heart of Peter.

May it leave a lasting and indelible impression on our minds and hearts as well.

A (Not-So) Silent Saturday

It is one of the most enigmatic statements in all of Scripture.

Ironically, as you are about to hear in this PODCAST, this mysterious statement follows one of the clearest, most-unambiguous and glorious proclamations in all of Holy Writ.

Two statements: one perplexing, one perfectly understandable, both written by our old friend Peter.

Timely statements each, given that the Easter season is upon us.

Two statements that beg us to answer two compelling questions:

1. Where did Jesus go during the hours between Friday night and Sunday morning?

2. What did Jesus do during those hours between His crucifixion and resurrection?

My friends, you are about to hear an amazing story seldom talked about precisely because it is so enigmatic—“difficult to interpret or understand; mysterious.”

Words that, when understood properly, bless our lives immeasurably.

You are in for an Easter treat.

Dramatic Words of a Dying Man (Part 3)

Caiaphas, the high priest that year, must have been fit to be tied.

Well, somewhat so.

As you will hear in this PODCAST, it was Passover. The Holy City, Jerusalem, was teaming with pilgrims. The all-important 3 PM Passover sacrifice at the Temple was fast-approaching.

It was arguably single most financially-flourishing day of the year (second only, perhaps, to the Day of Atonement) as far as the corrupt Temple Industrial Complex over which Caiaphas presided was concerned. There was money to be made this day. Lots and lots of money.

But the heavens seemed to conspire against Caiaphas.

Of all the luck (bad luck indeed), a most-rare, hauntingly-eerie atmospheric anomaly threatened to diminish severely Caiaphas’ shady haul of ill-gotten shekels.

At 12 PM, high noon, a mere three hours before the afternoon sacrifice, the sky turned ominously dark. If it stayed that way, there would be no 3 PM Passover Lamb sacrificed that day.

Well, according to Matthew 27 — Read ’em and weep, Caiaphas. 

“At noon, darkness fell across the whole land until 3 o’clock.”

A darkness that drove everyone away from the cross as they scrambled for shelter from the encroaching gloom of that midday backness.

Coincidence? No way!

Now there would be no Passover Lamb sacrificed at 3 PM on this day.

Or would there?

Dramatic Words of a Dying Man (Part 2)

Welcome back to the foot of the cross.

In this PODCAST, we are now in that six-hour window of time — between 9 AM and 3 PM.

9 AM when the Romans nailed Jesus to His cross; 3 PM, that moment when Jesus finally succumbed to His brutal beatings, His massive blood loss, and the tortures of crucifixion — finally and mercifully to die.

Within that six-hour window, Jesus spoke seven times. The final words of His earthly life pre-resurrection. As we noted last week, a complete, seven-sayings, last lingering look into Jesus’ beautiful, sizable, and irresistible soul.

The first two of these sayings we discussed last week.

We’ll consider the middle two now.

And the final three we’ll explain next week.

Let me give you a heads-up. Get yourself ready for a rollercoaster of a ride tonight. This because the first of the two that we consider now is without a doubt the most emotional of the seven. I dare say, this may well be the single most emotional scene in the entire Bible. I’ll leave that for you to decide.

The second of the two statements that we consider now is equally without a doubt the most dramatic of the seven. I dare say, this is the single most dramatic scene in the entire Bible. No question about that.

God bless you richly as you listen.
