The word “gospel” means good news. The Bible uses it to refer to the good news of God: specifically the news about Jesus and the way of salvation he provides. We believe that the gospel message is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes (Romans 1:16). We encourage you to consider this message of hope today. To aid you in your consideration of the gospel, we provide you a link to a multimedia presentation of the message of Christianity called “Two Ways to Live” by Matthias Media.
Luke 23:13-25 Pilate tried many times to declare Jesus innocent of the charges that the Jewish leaders brought against him, but they applied the right pressure and convinced him to comply. Pastor Rod Bunton wraps up this series on the trial of Jesus, highlighting the fact that the verdict was inevitable because, even though the Jewish leaders wanted Jesus on the cross that very day, God had a timetable, too.
Luke 23:8-16 After finding no guilt in Jesus, Pilate sees a way to escape the pressure from the accusers by sending him to Herod. Pastor Rod Bunton takes us through the second trial, which sees Herod coming to the same conclusion of innocence, and then a return to Pilate who tries one final attempt to satisfy the Jewish leaders without carrying out a sentence of death.
Luke 23:1-7 After a night of false accusations and illegal trials, the Jewish leadership sought to legitimize their accusations through legal civil trials with the Roman government. Pastor Rod Bunton reviews the first of those with Pilate who wasn’t pleased to cooperate but, nonetheless, participated in God’s ultimate plan.
Luke 22:63-71 After arresting Jesus, the chief priests and Pharisees moved swiftly towards finding charges that would convince the Roman government to put him to death. Pastor Rod Bunton reviews the first three trials, showing that they were so desperate to rush to a verdict that they even disregarded their own rules for legal proceedings.
