Series: EASTER 2019: PARADIGM SHIFT
WHO IS JESUS?
April 14, 2019 | Michael Davis
“That’s blasphemy! Does he think he’s God?” Matthew 9:3 (NLT)
“Why does your teacher eat with such scum?” Matthew 9:11 (NLT)
“If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.” Matthew 10:39 (NLT)
As Jesus and the disciples approached Jerusalem, they came to the town of Bethphage on the Mount of Olives. Jesus sent two of them on ahead. “Go into the village over there,” he said. “As soon as you enter it, you will see a donkey tied there, with its colt beside it. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone asks what you are doing, just say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will immediately let you take them.” This took place to fulfill the prophecy that said, “Tell the people of Jerusalem, ‘Look, your King is coming to you.
He is humble, riding on a donkey— riding on a donkey’s colt.’” The two disciples did as Jesus commanded. They brought the donkey and the colt to him and threw their garments over the colt, and he sat on it. Most of the crowd spread their garments on the road ahead of him, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Jesus was in the center of the procession, and the people all around him were shouting, “Praise God for the Son of David! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Praise God in highest heaven!”
The entire city of Jerusalem was in an uproar as he entered. “Who is this?” they asked. Matthew 21:10 (NLT)
JESUS IS A PARADIGM SHIFT
Jesus is a paradigm shift. His life, death, and resurrection call for a shift in all aspects of who we are and how we live. Join the GENESIS Community this Easter season as we explore together the shift Jesus brings to us... a shift resulting in NEW LIFE.
