  • We Would See Jesus Series

    Contributed by Ken Mckinley on Mar 9, 2020

    the 38th installment from our series on the Gospel of John. Here we look at the Greeks who came to see Jesus and how this is a turning point in John's Gospel, as the Lord prepares to give His life for the sin of man.

    We would See Jesus (John Part 38) Text: John 12:20-26 We’re continuing on with John’s Gospel this morning, so if you have your Bibles, go ahead and open them up to John 12.

  • Hosanna! Series

    Contributed by Gordon Pike on Apr 8, 2020

    Jesus entered this world for a purpose, and that purpose was the ultimate defeat of Darkness! Out of the darkest moment in the world’s history … the crucifixion of God’s Son … would shine the Light of Salvation and Eternal Life!

    Passover was always an exciting time to be in Jerusalem. The streets were packed with pilgrims and visitors and sightseers from all over the Mediterranean region. The shops and restaurants and inns were doing a brisk business as usual. But something was different this year. There was something more

  • Look! Who Is Coming To Dinner? John 12, Part 1

    Contributed by Jay Yousling on Dec 29, 2020
    based on 3 ratings

    People have preconceived notions of public figures. People have immediate, often polarizing opinions, about the person. Jesus was like this. He was a well know but little understood national figure. When you see Jesus, who do you see?

    “Fear not, daughter of Zion. Behold, your King comes, sitting on a colt of a donkey.” John 12:15 1. Dinner Anyone? There is a ‘getting acquainted’ question that is asked sometimes. You may have asked it or answered it before. The question is, “If you could, what famous person would you like to more

    based on 2 ratings

    Well, there is something that God wants for us. He wants us to BEHOLD, Behold Your King! Have you had enough of Jesus? Does it taste like more? Or, do you want a decaf version of the Savior?

    DOES IT TASTE LIKE MORE? JOHN 12, PART 2 (v20-26) Note: This sermon was given at a prayer service on a Sunday morning service. Each identity of Jesus was taught and then responded in prayer by the congregation in small prayer groups of 3-5 people. The section was closed by singing a short chorus. more

    The globalisation of the Gospel.

    JESUS LIFTED UP ON THE CROSS. John 12:20-36.

John makes the sober comment that more

  • Caring Matters- Ripples

    Contributed by Sylvester Fergusson on Jul 23, 2021

    based on 2 ratings

    This sermon talks about when Jesus's hour had come. It also addresses how Jesus tells us to pick up our crosses and follow in His foot steps.

    WHEN THE HOUR HAD COME Text: John 12:20-33 John 12:20-33 Now among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks.  (21)  They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said to him, "Sir, we wish to see Jesus."  (22)  Philip went and told more

  • The Other Sheep

    Contributed by John Williams Iii on Mar 22, 2021

    Jesus our Good Shepherd reminds us that we have other sheep that are not yet part of the fold. It has been said that these Greeks were some of those “other sheep.”

    THE OTHER SHEEP Text: John 12:20 - 33 “Someone (Ernest A. Fitzgerald) tells the story about Lou Gehrig who one day during his famed baseball career came to bat. He swung at two balls and missed. The third ball passed and the umpire called him out. Gehrig threw down the bat in more

  • Rising Popularity And The Upside-Down Kingdom Series

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on May 25, 2021

    A golden opportunity for increased popularity presents itself, but Jesus uses the occasion to talk about what glory looks like in His "upside-down" kingdom.

    THE MOST POPULAR GUY IN TOWN? Jesus’ popularity reaches a new level when even the Greeks are interested in Him. - John 12:20-22. A RELATED IDEA? Jesus’ response is focused on glory. - John 12:23. - Is Jesus interested in glory the way that everyone else is or is He pointing them toward more

  • The Hour Has Come Series

    Contributed by Scott Maze on Jun 3, 2021

    John continually speaks of a mysterious hour with little to no explanation. Like Hansel and Gretel’s breadcrumbs, the reference to “the hour” is important clue to understand Jesus in John’s gospel.

    Palm Sunday is a significant marker for God’s people. It’s the day where Jesus enters into Jerusalem to kick off a week of monumentally important event. The citizens of Jerusalem greeted Jesus with palm branches and shouts of “Hosanna” as he entered the city on the back of a colt. Our story picks more

  • Focus On Jesus Series

    Contributed by Perry Greene on Jan 29, 2015

    We easily get sidetracked from our walk with God in our traditions or preferences. The key to worship and a walk of faith is to focus on Jesus above ourselves.

    1. Pulpits A preacher described a special interest he had as a guest speaker to various congregations. "Whenever I preach in a church I haven't been to before, I am always anxious to stand behind the pulpit to get a feel for it. I want to stand there and look out at the still empty pews and more

    Jesus expects us to help others even when we don’t want to help them. He expects us to love others just like he loves us.

    Boys and girls, can you tell me about some times when you’ve had to help other people, especially when you didn’t want to or when you’ve been in a bad mood? Well, that’s what Jesus expects us to do. He expects us to help others even when we don’t want to help them. He more

  • Seek And You Will Find…great Expectations

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Jun 25, 2015

    Jesus is the new covenant that God promised to his people in Jeremiah 31:31-34. In Jesus, God united us to him with bonds that can never be broken, and through this new covenant, we and Jesus can look death in the eye and see victory.

    Today’s Gospel passage marks the beginning of a change in Jesus’ ministry. The coming of the Greeks is seen as anticipating the coming of the Gentiles into the community of believers. While it is true that before the events in our Gospel reading Jesus spoke to the woman at the well and more
