Cross Roads

Nicademus – Disciples by Day

The Christian faith is based entirely on a single event in history, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But what if no one had ever known about that event? What if the circumstances of Jesus’ burial had been different and His body hadn’t been laid in a tomb, but rather tossed in the city dump like so many other executed criminals? If there had been no tomb, no one could have known that a tomb was empty. The events surrounding Jesus’…

John – Last Man Standing

John was the only one of Jesus’ disciples to accompany Him all the way to the cross. As such, John offers a unique and powerful account of the events of Jesus’ crucifixion. It is important to John that his readers believe that Jesus lived and died, because what John reports next depends on the acceptance of these two facts. Join us for part 6 of Cross Roads, as Pastor Gary Webber teaches that doubt is a necessary crossroad between unbelief…

The Thief – Dying with Jesus

Many people carry shame from past mistakes. Shame follows us wherever we go and often determines the choices we make at important crossroads of life. What appeared to be the end of the road for the thief crucified with Jesus was, in fact, his most important crossroad. Would he allow shame to define his final moments or would he embrace the life Jesus was offering? Join us as we look at a moment that was intended to bring shame, but…

Pilate – Judging Jesus

When we say someone is “out of control,” we normally mean that they have lost some sense of decorum, reason, or ability to manage themselves and others. When we say someone has “control issues,” we usually mean that a person is crossing some imaginary line of what is appropriate in managing a situation, group, or individual. So what does it mean to be perfectly in control? And are we ever really in control of anything, or is control an illusion?…

Peter – Living in Denial

Fear is a primal emotion. Our deepest convictions are often revealed when we come face to face with our greatest fears. The Apostle Peter is famous for his bravado and self-confidence, but when he faced the cross roads of fear and faith, Peter’s choice revealed the true condition of his heart. Join us for part three of Cross Roads as we explore how we can choose fear over faith. Crossroad #3: Will you be directed by fear or faith? Fear…

Malchus – Religious Wounds

He was just doing his job when one of those religious zealots pulled out a sword and cut off his ear. Maybe, like Malchus, you’ve had a hurtful encounter with one of Jesus’ followers. Perhaps you still have wounds that serve as reminders of why you keep your distance from Jesus and His followers. While Malchus’ story begins with a wound inflicted by one of Jesus’ followers, it ends with a miraculous healing by Jesus. The Bible doesn’t tell us…

Judas – The Kiss of Death

Judas Iscariot is one of the most notorious names in history. It is synonymous with treachery and betrayal, but it wasn’t always. There was a time when Judas was among the most trusted of all of Jesus’ disciples. What happened to him? Can that happen to Jesus’ followers today? Join us for part one of Cross Roads as we take a closer look at Judas and discover the cross road every disciple must face. Crossroad #1: Will you follow Jesus…
