Prelude to a Kiss #3.

Are you ready for this?

And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold, saying to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a den of robbers.” And he was teaching daily in the temple. The chief priests and the scribes and the principal men of the people were seeking to destroy him, but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were hanging on his words. One day, as Jesus was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes with the elders came up and said to him, “Tell us by what authority you do these things, or who it is that gave you this authority.” He answered them, “I also will ask you a question. Now tell me, was the baptism of John from heaven or from man?” And they discussed it with one another, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will say, ‘Why did you not believe him?’ But if we say, ‘From man,’ all the people will stone us to death, for they are convinced that John was a prophet.” So they answered that they did not know where it came from. And Jesus said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.”

–Luke 19:45-20:8

The passage above can teach us so much about Christ. Sometimes people try to generalize His attributes as soft and lovey-dovey. Read over the passage above, and a sense of His pure masculinity and also His lack of patience for hypocrisy is readily seen.

We’re incredibly blessed at Calvary to have a teacher like Dave Riddle. I can’t wait to see how he unpacks this text for us. I learn new things every Sunday at CBC.

Here are the songs we’ll be singing to the Savior:

Join us this Sunday morning. Service starts at 10:45.
