Part 1 of our Lenten Series, 24 Hours That Changed The World
Sermon Text: Mark 14:12-25
ONE DAY that “Changed The World”?!? How could any two people agree on what day that might be?
Could it be the birth of Common Law Rights with the signing of the Magna Carta? Can you imagine the audacity of the signers of the American Declaration of Independence? What about the military turning point of Gettysburg in the Civil War? Maybe it was the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima or the fall of the Berlin Wall? Will we ever forget the horror of 9-11? The choices seem endless.
Well, Adam Hamilton … Oral Roberts University graduate, Methodist pastor, Christian author and blogger, married, father of two daughters … picks a 24-hour period that has (or should have) intimate meaning to over 2 billion people of our world. Adam chooses a 24-hour period that would not immediately come to mind for most folks, but it is without question a day that set the course and tone of Western culture … as we know it … for two thousand years.
No single event in human history has received more attention than the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. During our Lenten journey, Adam Hamilton will guide us through the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life. Each week, through the sermon and our program on Wednesday night, we will experience and begin to understand the significance of Jesus’ suffering and death in a way we may have never done before. So I invite you to the journey: 24 Hours That Changed The World. … Read full sermon here (PDF)
