Mark 14:12-72

Sermon Audio:


While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take it; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it.

’This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many,’ he said to them. ‘Truly I tell you, I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.’ When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
— Mark 14:22-26

Sermon Notes:

MAIN MOVEMENTS:

  1. Passover with the Disciples = PASSOVER
  2. Prayer at Mount of Olives = SUBMISSION
  3. Betrayal by one of His own = SUFFERING
Therefore, say to the Israelites: ‘I am the Lord, and I WILL BRING YOU OUT from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I WILL FREE YOU from being slaves to them, and I WILL REDEEM YOU with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment.

I WILL TAKE YOU AS MY OWN people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.
— Mark 14:22-26 NIV

PASSOVER:

  • Cup #1: "I will bring you out" = SANCTIFICATION
  • Cup #2: "I will delivery you from slavery" = DELIVERANCE
  • Cup #3: "I will redeem you" = REDEMPTION
  • Cup #4: "I will take you to be my people" = RESTORATION

FOR US:

  • Glad we can TRUST the plan of God to direct us;
  • Glad we can RELY on the sufficiency of Christ to deliver us; and
  • Glad we can EXPECT our bridegroom to redeem us.
