Forty Days

“It is finished …”

Mission accomplished! Now that the crucifixion and resurrection had taken place, it was time for Jesus to return home and be at the Father’s side once again … or was it? Scripture tells us that Jesus waited forty days before going home. Why? What was so important to do and teach those forty days, that it would delay going home?

April 8, 2018: “Forty More Days” – Pastor Marlin introduces the new series.

April 15, 2018: “Proof of Life” – For forty days, Jesus appeared to more than 500 people after His resurrection. Why? Because the more people who could testify to Him being alive, the better!

April 22, 2018: “Bible Study on the Road to Emmaus” – Where is the strangest place you have participated in a Bible study? Two men were walking to Emmaus, and found themselves in a Bible study with the risen Lord.

April 29, 2018: “The Last Breakfast” – What began with a calling on a shoreline, ended with a recall on the shore. We know the story of The Last Supper. Now learn about Jesus’ Last Breakfast with Peter and a few other disciples.

May 6, 2018: “About the Kingdom” – In the western world, we don’t do kingships very well. Jesus taught His disciples about the Kingdom of God in the forty days after His resurrection. What did He teach about it, and why is the Kingdom so important?

May 13, 2018: “About the Spirit” – Once the Lord Jesus taught about the Kingdom, He taught His disciples that He would send a Helper and Counselor. We know this as the Holy Spirit.

May 20, 2018: “Go” – (available soon) After He prepared His disciples for His coming departure by teaching about the Kingdom and Spirit, the Lord Jesus gave them a command: “Go.” Learn about the Great Commission and what it meant then and means now.

May 27, 2018: “Time to Go Home” – Once Jesus completed His teaching of His disciples and believers, it was time to go home to the Father. However, the Lord’s home-going meant Jesus’ work was continuing, not ending. Find out what it meant for the Lord Jesus to go home, both for Him and for us.
