“Give Salvation Now!” An Unexpected King| John 12.9-19

Sunday March 19th, 2017 | Pastor Patrick

Sermon in a Sentence:  Jesus is the King whose unexpected gentle coming inaugurated the Heavenly order of life on earth, which is revealed in our hearts only by the Spirit of God, in order to see his Kingdom reign extended throughout the world, as it is in heaven.

Outline:

  1. The Return of the King [v.12-15]
  2. Missing the Point, Then Finding it Later [v.16]
  3. Two Crowds, Overstatement & the Universal Kingdom [v.17-19]

5W: Questions for Group Study or Individuals:

  1. Who in this account are you most likely to recognize as yourself? Before you answer, consider often your tendencies to misjudge or your motivations, expectations, or observation skills.
  2. What was Jesus trying to communicate by coming to Jerusalem, a week before Passover, in such a manner – why do you think he did not stop the crowd from shouting if it was misplaced?
  3. When do we most often rely on our senses and interpretive skills? Have they ever lead us astray?
  4. Why is it important to recognize the disciples comment in v.16? What is the relevance of this to our dealing with those outside of faith?
  5. How will you apply the impact in the teaching of this passage?
