In Matthew 26, Jesus sat down. His betrayer joined Him.
In today's study, Jesus sat down for what we call the 'Last Supper,' with His betrayer seated just a few feet away. Our Lord had come to celebrate the Passover with His disciples, knowing this would be their last opportunity to do so. But He also knew the heart (and pending actions) of a man named Judas Iscariot.
In today's study, we'll consider the high stakes of Matthew 26.
Questions That We'll Answer:
A) Why did Judas betray Christ? What was his purpose and reward?
B) What doctrines did Jesus emphasize during the 'Last Supper?'
C) What was about to happen next? What did Jesus expect to occur?
There is a biblical phrase which is interchangable with the word "Gospel" and that is, "The new covenant of the Spirit." In this brief exhortation, we examine the importance of this prhase in understanding how it is we are transformed into the image of Christ "with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."

We have an identity crisis in our country. Society is confused about people's roles, so how should the church function during this identity crisis? In this week's sermon from Titus 2:2-3 we continue examining the call for older men to live sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. From there we dig into the command for older women to likewise live in reverent behavior. How should men live in this world that pulls toward either the extreme of masculinity or femininity? What does a reverent woman look like and how does she live? Sadly, we cannot look to our culture, society, or even best-selling Christian books, we must look to the scripture. Please join us this week as we seek to glorify God through the preaching and pointing of others to the truth of His Word.
