    based on 1 rating

    Part of an Easter series, this sermon looks at the Centurion and his response to his encounter with Christ.

    Just Doing My Job Mt. 27:27-54 Illus. One of the things I loved as a paramedic was that it was anything but routine. •We were trained to expect the unexpected, to be ready for anything.

  • Evidence Demands A Verdict

    Contributed by Keith Manry on Mar 29, 2007
    based on 44 ratings

    This is part V in the series - 24. It is a first person narrative account from the perspective of the centurion at the cross. WARNING: It is graphic! The preaching idea: the evidence has been presented. What will you do with it?

    “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” Ultimately, that’s what the final 24 hours in Jesus’ life are about – God’s plan to redeem us to buy us back. We’ve heard from four characters who more

  • Urgent Atonement Series

    Contributed by Jim Drake on Mar 17, 2008
    based on 101 ratings

    The cross is hideous. It’s not a pretty thing we hang on our walls. It’s not a fine piece of jewelry hanging from our neck. It is the most brutal instrument of death ever conceived by the cruel mind of man.

    For the past few weeks, we’ve been looking at the events of the last few days of Jesus’ life on earth. With each of those events, we’ve seen a sense of urgency. Each week we have seen an example of urgency. But this morning is different. In this morning’s passage, our Lord shows a sense of more

    Contributed by Mike Gilbert on Mar 17, 2008
    based on 44 ratings

    Significant truths we can learn and apply to our lives from the tearing of the temple veil at the moment of Jesus’ death.

    *INTRO>In 1966, Alfred Hitchcock directed a Cold War era mystery / thriller movie starring Paul Newman and Julie Andrews, a movie entitled, “The Torn Curtain.” The movie was not one of Hitchcock’s better-known films, as few people paid much attention to it. God understands when much expense has more

    based on 11 ratings

    A Good Friday sermon as part of the lenten series Words of Lent. (This sermon quotes several historical perspectives and descriptions of crucifixion)

    Four simple words are found in this text: “And they crucified him”. -- "And they crucified him!" Not very descriptive really, considering the severity of the punishment. Obviously, they were words that were meant for an entirely different audience. And audience, who is Jesus’ day, knew exactly what more

  • The Dynamite Of The Cross

    Contributed by Bob Joyce on Sep 14, 2007
    based on 8 ratings

    The dynamite (power) of the cross is displayed in the reaction of the centurion at Calvary’s cross. This is displayed through the righteousness and royalty of Christ, the response of heaven and the witness of the centurion’s own heart.

    The Bible does not give us many facts about activities of the centurions. In fact, centurions are referred to only four times in the Bible. Matthew 8 records the story where the centurion asked for his servant to be healed. “Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the more

    Contributed by Mark A. Barber on Aug 22, 2017
