It’s tempting to place the blame for Jesus’ crucifixion on Pilate, or the Jewish leadership. But the crowd was also complicit, and their error is one we’re especially likely to make today. Where did they go wrong, and how can we avoid making their mistake? Pastor Luke teaches from John 19:1–16 in “Passion Play,” part 5 of his 6-part series “The End of the Beginning.”


One More Year – Part 4 of Gardens

Nobody likes to be judged: even by our family, much less by our friends and neighbors, and especially not by God. Since God is able to enforce his judgments, it’s easy to see things that happen in our lives as God’s judgment at work. Good things mean good approves, bad, that God disapproves. Jesus says that’s a mistake, though, and offers a different way to look at God’s judgment. Pastor Luke preaches from Luke 13 in “One More Year,” part 4 of his 5-part series “Gardens.”
