King Coming


This weekend, I concluded our series, “King Coming,” at Eastbrook Church with a message entitled, “King Coming.” Because of my change of plans with the message last week (see “A Response to the Connecticut Tragedy“), I brought together a look at Jesus’ triumphal approach to Jerusalem (Mark 11:1-11) and Jesus’ three declarations of what He would face in Jerusalem (Mark 8:31-339:30-3210:32-34).

The central point of my message was that Jesus is the promised king who will give everything so that we can receive everything God has for us.

You can listen to the message at the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also follow the RSS feed for Eastbrook sermons or follower Eastbrook Church on Twitter or Facebook.

The outline for the message is included below:

Jesus as Son of Man and Son of David (Mark 8:319:3110:33)

The Key Chapter in the Story

The Story of Israel

  • Bondage under Pharaoh
  • Deliverer in Moses
  • Victorious Sacrifice at Passover
  • New Calling in the Law
  • Inheritance in Land of Canaan


The Story of Jesus

  • Bondage under Satan, Evil and Death
  • Deliverer in Jesus
  • Victorious Sacrifice at the Cross
  • New Calling in the Sermon on the Mount
  • Inheritance in Kingdom of God among us


The King Who Will Die

  • Compulsion (Mark 8:31) – “must”
  • Accusation (Mark 8:32-33) – “Get behind me Satan!”
  • Humility (Mark 9:3135) – “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last”
  • Reorientation (Mark 10:38) – “can you drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?”
  • Ransom (Mark 10:44-45) – “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many”

Why Does This Matter?

  1. Our world is broken and needs hope.
  2. God provides a solution to our broken world in Jesus.
  3. Jesus shows us the way to truly live through selfless humility.
  4. Jesus offers us hope and a resolution of eternal future.
  5. This shows us the heart of God for humanity and our world.
