    Matthew 27:51-66


    In this study we look at what happened in the aftermath of the death of Jesus.  Though the focus is often either placed on the death of Christ or His resurrection (and rightfully so), there are some very important events that occurred in between them.  We will look at the details of Jesus' burial as well as the curious events like the earthquake, the veil being rent, and the opening of the graves of the saints. matthew_27.4_-_4_1_21_2.43_pm.mp3File Size: 67128 kbFile Type: [...]

    Matthew 27:36-50


    Of course, we know how the story ends, but this moment in history was by far the darkest.  Jesus, the Son of God and the Son of man was suspended between heaven and earth on a cross.  This study looks at the events that took place on the cross at Calvary so long ago. matthew_27.3_-_4_1_21_2.54_pm.mp3File Size: 63597 kbFile Type: mp3Download File matthew_27_36-50.pdfFile Size: 34 kbFile Type: pdfDownload File [...]

    Matthew 27:26-35


    Here, the Savior is brutally scourged and mocked by the Roman soldiers under the commands of Pilate.  It is also here that we see the beginning of the end, Jesus being nailed to the cross to suffer painfully for several more hours.  This study will focus on these events and what we should take away from them. matthew_27.2_-_4_1_21_3.01_pm.mp3File Size: 63529 kbFile Type: mp3Download File matthew_27.26-35.pdfFile Size: 31 kbFile Type: pdfDownload File [...]

    Matthew 26:31-46


    In the final moments before Jesus undertakes the horrors of the trials, scourging, and crucifixion, we find him spending a few moments in a peaceful garden.  Jesus, however, was feeling anything but peace.  In the most mentally excruciating moment that Jesus faced, we find a number of lessons to learn.   matthew_26-36-36_feb_10th_-_3_2_21_3.28_pm.mp3File Size: 49046 kbFile Type: mp3Download File matthew_26.31-46.pdfFile Size: 32 kbFile Type: pdfDownloa [...]

    Matthew 26:26-30


    In these passages, Jesus institutes a memorial service that Christians still observe today, in memory of Him.  However, many questions and controversies have erupted over this memorial.  From the contents, the way it was partaken, and even the importance of each emblem has been called into question.  In this study we try to bring clarity to this subject using the words found in this account and others as our guide. matthew_26.2_-_2_24_21_6.08_pm.mp3File Size: 118666 k [...]
