Sermon: The Weekend That Changed the World: Christ On TrialPastor Brian Zahnd | Sunday, October 9, 2011 - 11:00 am
This message begins a series entitled The Weekend That Changed the World, highlighting the final 72 hours before Christ was crucified. It begins with the world putting God on trial. During the trial, Roman Governor Pilate questions Jesus, finally asking “What is truth?” What Pilate is really asking is this: What is the meaning of it all? What is ultimate reality? As Christians, our stock answer to the question is “Jesus is the truth”. But what do we mean when we say this? What truth is Jesus bearing witness to? If we look at Jesus as the full revelation of God we discover that God is Love. And the world can be organized around love as forgiveness instead of power as force.
