The Final Move

This weekend at Eastbrook Church I concluded our “Crossroads” series, which traces Jesus’ time in Jerusalem before the crucifixion and corresponds with our Lenten journey to the Cross.  This final message is entitled “The Final Move” and looks at one of Jesus’ most difficult teachings in Luke 21:5-36. It is difficult in two senses. First, it is difficult to understand and many scholars have a variety of opinions on this passage. It is difficult in a second sense in that Jesus’ words are very challenging and sobering to hear.

You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.

Also, join in with the daily devotional and reading plan for this series here.

 

The Time and the End (Luke 21:5-11)

The time of destruction

The end of all things

 

Persecution and Perseverance (Luke 21:12-19)

Persecution will come

It is an opportunity to give testimony to Jesus

It is an opportunity to show perseverance

 

Two Ends: Jerusalem and Human History (Luke 21:20-33)

Jerusalem’s destruction in AD 70: a sign of the end

Christ’s return at the end of history: the end of all signs

 

The Calling of the Christian in Light of the Times and the End (Luke 21:34-36)

Be careful

Be watchful

Be prayerful
