    A monologue: Bar Timaeus follows Jesus to Jersualem; in the foreground he offers his first lamb, in the backgound Jesus is crucified.

  • Certainly -- At A Distance

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Apr 21, 2003
    based on 36 ratings

    For Good Friday: sometimes we no longer see things because we are too close to them. The disciples saw the cross "at a distance", but the centurion saw it through his callousness, cynicism, and skepticism, and affirmed, "Certainly".

    Sometimes when you are too close to something you cannot see it. Or at least you cannot recognize what it is. You can be so close that you do not know what you are looking at. You need somebody else to give you a fresh perspective. My wife and I buy grocery items when they are on more

    based on 127 ratings

    This sermon takes a look at the cross through the eyes of the disciples and how the cross which was originally one of suffering and shame became one of rejoicing and elation.

    How could they have been so wrong. One by one they each chose to leave everything and to answer the call to follow Jesus and become fishers of men. For 3 brief years they watched in anticipation as Jesus worked miracles and taught with authority. Peter even stated that Jesus was indeed the more

    based on 14 ratings

    This short talk uses a story I wrote for a school assembly (ages 8 to 16) to help people think about this prayer of Jesus from the cross

    Many years ago, long before any of us were born, and long before our great grandparents were born, a young man walked into town. His clothes were old and well worn. His shoes had holes, and he carried all of his possessions in a small, dirty bag. When he first arrived in town he slept under an more

  • Sleeping Well These Days?

    Contributed by Ron Hicks on Mar 29, 2007
    based on 30 ratings

    Good Friday will never be as bad for us as it was for the disciples and certainly not as bad as it was for Jesus.

    SLEEPING WELL THESE DAYS? Matt 26:17-27:36 How do you think that you will sleep this next Friday night? Most of us will probably sleep well? Few of you may have difficulty sleeping because of physical or emotional conditions. But on the most part we will probably have a average to good more

    based on 15 ratings

    This is a dramatic monolgue of the Roman Centurion and some of what He may have seen and thought about the events surrounding the crucifixion and resurection of Christ.
