    Lighting the Eternal Flame (Matthew 28:16-20; Luke 24:45-9)

    Lighting the Eternal Flame (Matthew 28:16-20; Luke 24:45-9)

    Faced with the testimony of the tomb guards, the grieving women, the doubting apostles, and, finally, doubting Thomas, only the fact of the resurrection can explain the radical transformation from despair to determination in the lives of Jesus' followers. The New Testament faces each of us with a choice-either declare the resurrection a fraud and curse Jesus as the ultimate religious hoax, or confess that it is ultimate truth and devote our entire lives to bringing this light into the lives of others. Dave invites us to hear Christ's marching orders for the believer.

    Resurrection - The Fulfillment (John 19:38ff; Luke 23:50-24:44)

    Resurrection - The Fulfillment (John 19:38ff; Luke 23:50-24:44)

    Whatever you might believe about faith--whether you ignore it, tolerate it, or hate it -no one can escape the historical and present day fact that since a Sunday sunrise in AD33 there has been an ever increasing multitude of witnesses who believe that Jesus escaped the prison of death. We are challenged to face this momentous choice: Declare the resurrection a hoax and curse Jesus; or bow before Him as the Author of Life.

    Crucified in Our Place (Mark 15:16ff)

    Crucified in Our Place (Mark 15:16ff)

    When a carpenter hits his thumb with a hammer, or your boss gets word that your firm just lost its biggest account, what expletives do you hear? Why is it consistently Jesus Christ's name that is used in secular society for a curse? Dave Wyrtzen challenges us to consider this: What comes out of our mouth when we are angry and upset reveals the reality of what is deep inside our personality.

    The Arrest and Trial (Mark 14:43-15:20)

    The Arrest and Trial (Mark 14:43-15:20)

    Do you remember back when Noriega dreamed he was the Emperor of the South. Mocking justice, the drug broker embellished his luxury and worshiped his demons while his wounded nation pumped out its life blood. The American night attack sought to end this gangster's reign of terror in Panama. Dave Wyrtzen contrasts this night attack with another night arrest that executed the worst travesty of justice this world has ever known.

    The Battle of Olivet Hill (Mark 14:32-42)

    The Battle of Olivet Hill (Mark 14:32-42)

    "If it doesn't feel good, don't do it! Avoid anything that generates boredom, discomfort, or pain. If your internal vibrations are troubled as you contemplate whether or not to do something, do not proceed.” The ultimate objective in life is to keep yourself “feelin’ good!'” Jesus Christ did not "feel like" going to Calvary and becoming a martyr. Come with Him to Gethsemane to observe the Savior's greatest moment of vulnerability where He faced ultimate pain.

    The Father and The Son's Gift (John 14:15-31)
