Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” – 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

Scene #1: The Garden (John 18:1-14) 

  • The Scene (vs. 1-3)
  • The Claim: “________________” (vs. 4-5)
  • The Reaction (vs 6-7)
  • The Work (vs. 8-14) 

“…it would be good for one man to die for the people.” (vs. 14)

“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.” – 2 Corinthians 5:14-15

“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.” – 1 John 2:2

(John 3:16, Hebrews 2:9, 1 Peter 3:18)

Scene #2: The Cross (John 19)

  • Before the Cross: The Sentence of the Sovereign (vs. 1-16)
    • Betrayed by His disciple
    • Taken by Jewish leaders
    • Stood before Pilate
  • On the Cross: The Suffering King (vs. 17-30)
    • Bearing His own Cross
    • King [For] the Jews
    • “It is Finished”

To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” – 1 Peter 2:21-24

  • After the Cross: The Silence of the Master (vs. 31-42)
    • Scripture is fulfilled (vs. 31-37)
    • Two men bring their worship (vs. 38-41)
      • (John 3:1-21)
