Broken and Poured Out

Broken and Poured Out
Speaker – Crispin Schroeder

I.               Intro – Context Matters
Why did Jesus go to Jerusalem?
Why did Jesus choose to got to Jerusalem during Passover Week?

II.              The History of Passover (Exodus 12, 13)
·      The first Passover
·      Passover instituted as an annual feast/holy week for Israel.
·      1,500 years of Passovers celebrated when Jesus arrives the week of Passover in Jerusalem.

III.            Jesus Celebrates the Passover with his disciples (Luke 22:7-20)
·      Jesus reconfigures Passover in light of New Covenant
·      Do THIS in remembrance of me. 
·      Communion is the symbolism, the life of Jesus broken and poured out is the substance.

IV.            A Life Broken and Poured Out (John 15:12-13)
What does this look like?
It looks like Jesus, loving his enemies, blessing those who curse him, doing good to the ones who were coming at him with scorn and contempt.  It looks like Jesus dying for the very ones who were killing him.

  1. Nice review of the Passover and bringing it into context. And check this out: I have often heard from people, "How do you want to be remembered?" after I pass on. For some reason, I was especially reminded, as I listened to this, that if I'm not remembered for sharing the love of God in Christ, well, then, in terms of eternity, I just don't think anything else matters. I know that's not overly profound, but it just made so much more of an impression tonight as I listened. So thanks for being the conduit of that blessing. And on a lighter note, I did look up haggis as I did not know what it was. And all I can say is, ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwweeeeee! No wonder one would need Guinness with it. It would be needed to cover the taste of that stuff! TA
