On This Night, In This Meal

Audio Sermon for Holy Thursday
Luke 22:7-34

On the night he was betrayed,  Jesus took bread and wine from the Passover meal, and inaugurated a new covenant of grace and forgiveness. The God who had freed Israel from slavery would soon deliver all believers from condemnation and death. In this brief sermon, Pastor Hinkle  reminds us of what was given and why we come to receive it.

It Is Finished

Seven Things Jesus Said from  the Cross, Part 6

Audio Sermon on  John 19:30

Moments from death Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “It is finished!”

What was finished?

  • His testing and temptation
  • His suffering
  • His work of atonement
  • Everything required for our salvation.

The old era of sin and condemnation was ending and a new era would  soon begin.
