Everything Leads to Jesus

March 25, 2018 Speaker: Damian Mericka Series: EasterWeek_2018

Topic: Everything Leads to Jesus

Title: Everything Leads to Jesus

Series: Palm Sunday / Easter 2018

Text: Supporting Texts

Main Idea:    How Does Your Life Lead People to Jesus?


  1. Tradition Leads to Jesus (Exodus 12; John 12:1;12)
  • Passover is Coming / Tension is Building
    • It’s Origin and Practice (Exodus)
      • A prophetic word (11:8-9)
      • A judgment and Covering (12:1-11)
      • An Annual Reminder (12:23-28)
    • The LAMB comes to be given (John 12:1;12)
  1. Prophecy Leads to Jesus (Zechariah 9:9; Matthew 21:1-6)
  • Motivation to build the Temple
    • Preparing for the Messiah (Zechariah 9:9)
  • The KING comes to conquer
    • Two Disciples Sent (Matthew 21:1-6)

III. Ministry Leads to Jesus (John 12:12-26)

  • Crowds celebrate Jesus entering Jerusalem (Vv.12-15)
  • The disciples are confused (Vv. 16-18)
  • Opposition is outraged (v.19)
  • The Messiah comes to save (Vv.20-24)
  • We are called to continue this Ministry- helping people take one step closer to Jesus and say YES! to Him!

Going deeper questions (SMall Group)

  • What stood out to you about this message and why?
  • Describe the Role of Jesus as the Lamb, King, and Messiah from this message. Why is each role necessary?
  • Why would God use tradition & prophecy to prepare Israel for Jesus? Were they prepared? 
  • Why was the crowd excited about Jesus (from John’s passage)? Have you ever felt “caught up” with the moment / crowd? It can be easy to get caught up or go with the flow of things in worship on Sundays- how do you keep it real between you and Jesus?  What about the rest of the week?

Name one thing about your life that points / leads people to Jesus?
