Chestnut Ridge Church
The Final Week—Week 1
During the Easter season, we focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus, but often overlook the time leading up to his arrest. Was Jesus a victim of a cruel scheme or did he orchestrate those events to bring about God’s eternal plan? Today, we are launching the new series, The Final Week. Let’s explore how the days leading up to the trial, death, and resurrection of Jesus were all part of God’s eternal plan to save the world.

The Final Week [Part 1]—Tim Haring

Problem: The people did not realize who Jesus was.
Solution: Jesus was both the lion and the lamb.
Today's Takeaway: Jesus is the lion and the lamb.
• Jesus was claiming to be the lion of Judah.
"Such an animal was qualified to perform a sacred task."—R.H. Stein
The cornerstone (or foundation stone or setting stone) is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation, important since all other stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure.—Wikipedia
• Jesus was claiming to be the lion of Judah.
• Jesus was claiming to be the Passover lamb.
