A King and His Kingdom (Easter)

This weekend at Eastbrook Church we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus and began a new series, “The Kingdom Life,” which corresponds with our Lenten journey to the Cross.  This first message in the series is entitled “A King and His Kingdom” and looks at Luke’s resurrection narrative from Luke 24:1-12.

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

Also, you are welcome to join in with the daily reading plan for this series.

The Sent Son

This weekend at Eastbrook Church, as we continued the “Crossroads” series, I preached a message entitled “The Sent Son.” This message builds upon the previous weeks of the series (see “Lord of the Sabbath” and “The New Temple“) by exploring Jesus’ parable in Luke 20:1-19. This parable is sometimes known as the parable of the wicked tenants and at other times as the parable of the noble land owner. Either way, the parable’s central focus is really the sent son as a radical change of the prophetic metaphor found in Isaiah 5:1-7.

The New Temple

This weekend at Eastbrook Church I continued the series, “Crossroads,” which corresponds with our Lenten journey to the Cross.  This second message is entitled “The New Temple” and looks at Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the cleansing of the Temple in Luke 19:28-48.

This is a pivotal message that explores how Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem disrupts the Temple-centric worship of the people of Israel by foretelling the deconstruction of the Jerusalem Temple and the reconstruction of God’s new Temple not built by hands. You’ll have to watch it or listen to it to see what is going on.

Lord of the Sabbath

This weekend at Eastbrook Church we began a new series, “Crossroads,” which corresponds with our Lenten journey to the Cross.  The first message is entitled “Lord of the Sabbath” and looks at three Sabbath stories from Jesus’ ministry in Luke 6:1-11 and 13:10-17. I started with an overview of the significance of the Sabbath followed by an exploration of Jesus’ message and identity as Lord of the Sabbath. I also spent a brief time talking about the Pharisees and hypocrisy.
