In this sermon we finish out our series in Esther by briefly discussing the Feast of Purim and then moving on the topic of whether or not we should celebrate Old Testament Feasts. Read Esther 9:20-10:3 and Colossians 2:1-19 and listen in.
What was the significance of the Old Testament temple? How does the New Testament speak about God’s temple? Listen in as we dig into Ephesians 2:19-22 and answer these questions and see that we are his temple.
We first read Exodus 28 and then focused on a couple of items of the High Priest’s garments. We looked more closely at the shoulder pieces and the breastplate of judgment to see how the picture Christ and His intercession for His people (also see Hebrews 7:23-25). Jesus is truly our true and greater High Priest who continually intercedes for us!
In this sermon we launch our discussion from Deuteronomy 18:15-22. First we examine briefly the topic of an Old Testament prophet. What was a prophet? What is prophecy? How does all this find its fulfillment in Jesus? Listen as we bring in other texts to show that Jesus is the true and greater prophet in whom all the other prophets find their fulfillment.
The cross of Jesus Christ was both the most horrifying and glorious place on earth!
