SERMON NOTES:

Matthew 28:18

Matthew 7:28-29

Timothy Keller:

“If your God never disagrees with you, you might just be worshiping an idealized version of yourself.”

 

  1. THE  AUTHORITY OF JESUS

Mark 1:21-22

Timothy Keller:

“He didn’t just clarify something that they already knew, or simply interpret the Scriptures in the way the teachers of the law did. His listeners sensed somehow that he was explaining the story of their lives as the author, and it left them dumbfounded.”

John 1:1-2

C.S. Lewis:

“For Christianity is a fighting religion. It thinks God has made the world- that space and time, heat and cold, and all the colors and tastes, and all the animals and vegetables, are things that God ‘made up out of His head’ as a man makes up a story. But it also thinks that a great many things have gone wrong with the world that God made and that God insists, and insists very loudly, on our putting them right again.”

 

      2. THE  AUTHORITY OF JESUS

Mark 1:23-27

James 2:19

G.K. Chesterton:

“If a rhinoceros were to enter this restaurant now, there is no denying he would have great power here. But I should be the first to rise and assure him that he had no authority whatever.”

Proverbs 14:12

Martin Luther:

“The life of Christianity consists in possessive pronouns.”

 

     3. THE  AUTHORITY OF JESUS

Mark 1:29-34

N. T. Wright:

“There is no doubt that Jesus quickly attracted huge crowds and that His authoritative healings were the main reason. That in itself would have been threatening to the authorities but as we shall discover soon there was more. Jesus had joined in a struggle against the forces of evil and destructive forces that lie in the dark cruel sea pouring floods of water on top of helpless travelers. The demons had their final shriek as Jesus hung on the cross, challenging and mocking for the last time the validity of His authority. On the cross He completed the healing work He began that day in the synagogue.”

Mark 10:45

Charles Wesley:

“Long my imprisoned spirit lay, fast bound in sin and nature’s night; thine eye diffused a quick’ning ray—I woke, the dungeon flamed with light; my chains fell off, my heart was free, I rose, went forth and followed thee.”
