Sunday Review - Matthew 27:27-44

20160327 preparing image

Looking Back This past week we were led through Matthew 27:27-44. It was striking that the crucifixion of Jesus was not what was highlighted in this passage, but it was the mocking/shaming of Jesus. We saw three different categories of the way Jesus was mocked: he was mocked as powerless, as foolish, and as Godless. Pastor Bret demonstrated that this is the way the world ...

Looking Back We are so thankful for the group of elders that we have here at Summit Woods and their desire and ability to preach on Sunday morning. Thank you Adam Nahler for drawing our hearts to another characteristic of a healthy church, Glorifying God through Biblical Church Order, from Peter's first letter, 1 Peter 5:1-5.

Sunday Review - Matthew 27:11-26

Looking Back As we gathered Sunday, we heard from Matt 27:11-26 the description of the condemnation of Jesus in three phases: suppression of the truth with lies, choosing sin above justice, and condemning the innocent and not the guilty. Pastor Bret then pointed out the same pattern in Romans 1, and in our society today. Pastor Bret then reminded us that this is the norma...

Preparing for Sunday - Matthew 27:11-26

Carefully Think Read Matt 27:11-26, this is the text for Sunday’s sermon. NOTE: Pilate and the governor are the same person (27:2). “You have said so” (v.11). Jesus said this before in 26:25 and 26:64. Who were the questioners? Did having the right answer help them? Why or Why not? “At the feast” (v.15); Which feast? (If you don’t ...

Sunday Review - Matthew 27:1-10

Looking Back The exposition of Scripture last Sunday examined the false repentance of Judas in light of his repentant actions.  The parallels to Peter in his betrayal of the Savior were staggering in that Judas seems to be more repentant than Peter, yet we know the outcome of both Judas and Peter beyond this passage.  The most critical element in repentantance a...
