The last day of Jesus’ life on earth…what did he do? Why did he do it?

I know it’s not Maundy Thursday, yet.  But I wanted folks to hear this sermon on Jesus’ last day of life on earth before he was crucified. What he choose to do with his disciples. To hear and understand the “new commandment” that he gave to them, and that He still gives to us.

And then look at ourselves and take stock of how well we are following that new commandment. And to have renewed understanding of why there even had to be a Holy Week…and a cross.

Try and listen at a time when you won’t be interrupted, and try to listen to the entire message. Thanks.





Thanks, Pastor Mark.
And thank to flickr and Uergevic, for the photo.

  1. Ive been listening to these sermons for a couple of months now and have been meaning to say “Thank you” Steve for posting them. It is so awesome to know there are real Lutheran sermons still being preached. Please keep it up!

  2. Thanks so much, Anthony!

    It’s a pleasure. Especially when I know there are those out there like you that appreciate them.

    I’ve got the easy part. Pastor Mark does the heavy lifting.

    Take care, my friend, and check back in anytime.

    PS- What part of the country are you in, Anthony?

  3. Hi Steve, I am with Anthony…it is such a pleasure to soak in such Christ centered messages. It’s interesting, though, your comment about Pastor Mark “doing the heavy lifting”. It seems like he teaches from a “DNA” that has been changed and he simply teaches what he has been “shown”. Sort of like Paul. It is hard to put words to it but like he is speaking a language that (as a teacher in these times) few have.

  4. Mary,

    I think you have it exactly right.
    “Once I was blind…and now I see.” The Lord really does change us.

    I do think that Pastor Mark would tell you himself, that he doesn’t have anything that we (believers) don’t have. Maybe he has more training, and more experience as a minister of Word and Sacrament. But the gospel belongs to all of us. And the Lord will accomplish His will when we speak that Word into the life of a sinner.

    Anyway, as Pastor Mark often says, “go and do likewise.”

  5. This is Maundy Thursday in Holy Week. Without Holy Week, and Good Friday, there is no Easter. Give a listen… Peace to all.

  6. God bless you, Lois.

    Thank you.

    – Steve
