Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 3/30/2014

Sunday’s message from the Lead Me to the Cross series was called Jesus on Trial, taken from Matthew 26:57-68. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. A trumped up trial (57-61)
   A. Illegal proceedings (57-58)
   B. False witnesses and a predetermined outcome (59-60)
   C. Distorted testimony (61)

II. A silent defendant (62-63)
   A. Jesus is silent before his accusers (62)
   B. Caiaphas puts Jesus under oath (63)

III. The coming judge and king (64-68)
   A. Jesus confesses his true identity and future glory (64)
   B. The court accuses Jesus of blasphemy (65-66)
   C. Jesus is mistreated and abused (67-68)

   1) When Jesus returns, he will judge the whole world justly
         (Daniel 7:9-10; John 5:22-23)
   2) When Jesus judges us, we will be silent before him
         (Romans 3:19)
   3) When you are treated unjustly, don’t retaliate – trust God
         (1 Peter 2:21-23)
