Then Came The Morning
by Dennis Michelson
A an Easter meditation based upon John 18 and 19.
Introduction: The message outlines four important stops along the road to glory for our Savior.
1. The Terror of Gethsemane (John 18:1)
It was a place of:
Promise (compare with Psalm 110)
Pressing (the location was an olive press)
2. The Travesty of Gabbatha (John 19:13)
How ironic that Pilate is setting in the seat of judgment and passing unjust judgment on the One who will pass just judgment on him later. The unjust judging the just!
3. The Testimony of Golgotha (John 19:17)
4. The Triumph of the Garden Tomb (19:41)
