Good Friday 2017: “The Rejection of God’s Cornerstone”

“THE REJECTION OF GOD’S CORNERSTONE” (Luke 20:9-19)
April 14, 2017 GOOD FRIDAY 2:30 PM
Rev. Jeremy B. Stopford, Pastor

INTRODUCTION:
This Easter season we have been taking a gander through the book of Luke. Sunday we looked at Dr. Luke’s insight of the first Palm Sunday, with his view of the Savior being presented as the King of the Jews. This brief account was filled with evidence of Jesus’ deity, and of the double responses to that truth with both joy and hate.
Shortly after that incident, in response to the chief priests’ question concerning Jesus’ authority, the Savior shares His insightful look at the purpose of the cross, as seen in the “Parable of the Tenants”. There are 4 key words which make this parable unique & challenging today. PRAYER

TODAY’S SPECIAL “All You Can Eat”. Two sea monsters were swimming around in the ocean, looking for something to do. They came up underneath a ship that was hauling potatoes. Bob, the first sea monster, swam underneath the ship, tipped it over and ate everything on the ship.
A little while later, they came up to another ship, again hauling potatoes. Bob again capsizes the ship and eats everything onboard.
The third ship they found was also hauling potatoes and Bob once again capsized it and ate everything.
Finally his buddy Bill asked him, “Why do you keep tipping over those ships full of potatoes and eating everything on board?”
Bob replied, “I wish I hadn’t, but I just can’t help myself.  Everyone knows you can’t eat just one potato ship.”
