Mission Central Podcast – Deluge of Evil – Insulted by the Crowd

Today we continue our series called “Journey to the Cross.” Crucifixion is humiliating and horribly violent. You would think even the most angry might have some pity on a man going through such a death. There was none from the crowd of onlookers.

Mission Central Podcast #016

Insults from the crowd came out of a need to protect themselves.Insults came out of a need to protect themselves.

  • Protecting their Religion
    They remembered Jesus statement that he could rebuild the Temple in 3 days
  • Protecting their Power
    If Jesus was King, then who were they?
  • Protecting their Guilt
    If Jesus is God’s Son, then we are guilty.

Mission Central Podcast – the Priests and the Crowd

Today we continue a new series called “Journey to the Cross.” We begin by taking an in-depth look at the characters at the foot of the cross. This episode looks at The Priests and the crowd.

Mission Central Podcast #013

Here are the key points from this episode:

The priests easily manipulate the crowd

– A week earlier they were praising Jesus as He entered on Palm Sunday

– Corrupt leaders are capable of inducing a bad choice

Even though they chose Barabbas, they still had to make a decision about Jesus

– You don’t get rid of Jesus just because you choose another god

– Even today, the crowd will choose almost anything other than Jesus

“His blood be on us and on our children” was a prophetic statement, though they didn’t know that at the time.

– In AD 70 the city of Jerusalem was completely destroyed

– The blood of Jesus was shed for them and their children

Jesus still died for the priests and for the crowd.
