Mosaic: Discovering Jesus


Just as we live in a topsy-turvy world, Jesus’s first disciples had a real roller-coaster experience with the Lord. One wonders if they experienced a kind of spiritual whiplash. In little over a month, they were ecstatic at the miracles, crushed at the crucifixion, petrified by the Romans, overjoyed and incredulous at the resurrection, anointed with a mission, and filled with power from on high. In these separate stories, a picture emerges of Jesus – a mosaic. Pastor Mike will explore these moments in time to share the good news for our own moments of spiritual whiplash. This series provides a mosaic of Jesus’ appearances to the disciples between his resurrection and the giving of the Holy Spirit.

Mosaic: Discovering Jesus

Luke 24:44-53

Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you—that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures, and he said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And see, I am sending upon you what my Father promised; so stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”

Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and, lifting up his hands, he blessed them. While he was blessing them, he withdrew from them and was carried up into heaven. And they worshiped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy; and they were continually in the temple blessing God.

John 14:15-21

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.

“I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.”
