It's Up To You

Jacob Parnell

What do we do with the "alternate ending" of Mark (v.9-20) which has a lot to say about belief and unbelief? This message sorts through some issues surrounding the end of the Gospel of Mark as we have it and encourages hearers to animate their belief in Christ by putting faith into action.

Mark 16:9-20

More Than A Story

Jacob Parnell

What do we do with the "alternate ending" of Mark (vv.9-20) which has a lot to say about belief and unbelief? This message sorts through some issues surrounding the end of the Gospel of Mark as we have it and encourages hearers to animate their belief in Christ by putting faith into action. Mark 16:1-8

Come to the Table

Jacob Parnell

A passage filled with surprises: a woman(!) breaks a very expensive jar of perfume(!) and Jesus defends her(!) in the home of Simon the Leper(!); Jesus reinterprets the Passover symbols(!); and Jesus welcomes those who will betray and desert him to his table! Having been, ourselves, recipients of this amazing grace, we are called to extend that grace to others. This sermon challenges hearers to do like Jesus and share a table with our enemies. There's also something in there about sushi. :)

Don't Fall Asleep

Jacob Parnell

Half of this message gives context for Jesus' comments in Mark 13 about the destruction of the Temple and the coming of the Son of Man. The second half calls hearers to examine how well they are heeding Jesus' admonition to "be alert, be on guard, and keep watch."

Sermon text: Mark 13:1-37

Welcome, Jesus!

Jacob Parnell

 

Jesus believed in the kingdom he preached so much that he was willing to lay down his life in order to inaugurate it. In this message we see Jesus welcomed by a crowd as he enters Jerusalem. But do they really welcome his kingship, his kingdom, and his political ideals? Do we?
