Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: As Jesus faces a false trial, laced with false accusations, there is another trial going on at the same time. And the outcomes are total opposites. This ought to help us to realize two things. The frailty of human sinners and the reliability of Christ. He is a faithful Savior, even when his servants are not so faithful.
Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: Isaiah 53.3-5 speaks of our Lord Jesus Christ, ‘He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.’
Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: In the Lord’s Supper, Christ makes a pledge to his disciples that he will go before them to die and rise for them and he will fulfill the conditions of the covenant. This is why it is considered a sign and seal of the covenant of grace (unmerited favor).
Speaker: Derrick Leitão Series: Mark Sermon Info: “And as they were eating, he took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. Truly, I say to you, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”
