The Night That Was Different From all Other Nights

It was Thursday of Jesus’ final week and danger was in the air. For four days Jesus had taught openly in the Temple. Now he was alone with his disciples sharing a Passover meal and telling them they were to remember something very different from their deliverance from Egypt, they must remember him and the sacrifice he would offer for the world.

The Wise and Foolish Virgins

Jesus and his disciples were on the Mount of Olives to the east of Jerusalem. They were looking over the great city and the activities in the Temple and thinking about the past week. Jesus was also telling them about the coming judgment upon the city for its refusal to heed the ways of God and in those statements he told the famous story of the wise and foolish virgins.

The Hypocrites, the Widow, and the End

The conflict between Jesus and the religious rulers was coming to a climax. Throughout his ministry the rulers had followed him, questioned him, and tested him. Now, Jesus brought the challenge to them in the temple.

The Banquet, the Coin, and the Son

Tension is high between Jesus and the rulers, but everyone must hear his words of warning or catastrophe will come. To help his people understand, Jesus tells a story about a king inviting everyone to the wedding banquet of his son. But those invited do not come and suffer the consequences of their rejection. Will the people of Israel get the point?

The Vineyard, the Son, and the Stone

The Old Testament prophet Isaiah told a story comparing God's people to a vineyard. Jesus takes this story and gives it new characters and a new ending. He also tells them about the prophecy of Psalm 118 about a stone that was rejected by men but was precious to God.

The Disobedient Sons

Jesus is teaching in the temple but the religious authorities challenge him. What right did he have to take over the temple? Jesus answers with a question of his own and then tells a story about two disobedient sons that would pierce the hearts of everyone listening.

The Humble King

It is the first day of Jesus’ final week. He tells his disciples to get a donkey for him that he might ride into Jerusalem as the king. He is hailed as Messiah by multitudes. The week that changed the world forever has begun.

A Disappointing Day

After a mountaintop experience in which Jesus shows his glory to three of his disciples, Jesus and his disciples descend the mountain. Jesus finds the other nine disciples in an argument with scribes and unable to cast out an evil spirit from a young boy. The father of the young boy appeals to Jesus for help but Jesus is exasperated with everyone's unbelief. What will he do and say?
