During Lent, our sermon series and small group study will focus on Jesus’ final words from the Cross.
In life and in death, Jesus’ words were powerful and meaningful. Despite the serious effort and increased pain required for Jesus to speak as he hung on the cross, Jesus spoke seven “final words”—statements that have much to teach us about Jesus, his Father, and ourselves.
In this Second Week of Lent, we will be focusing on Jesus’ words to the thief being crucified with Jesus. We will especially concentrate in today’s sermon and at this evening’s and Wednesday’s Lenten Small Group Studies on Jesus’ promise to the repentant thief: “Today you will be with me in Paradise.”
Please read the second chapter in Adam Hamilton’s book: The Final Words From the Cross” in preparation for our Lenten Small Group Studies. If you need more information or have questions, see Reverend Dan
