References: Mark 11It could be the plot for a movie: An oppressed nation is looking for a liberator, but there's a plan in the works to kill him before he can act. An innocent man dies willingly for guilty men. People are coming back to life from the dead and a body disappears. Centuries' worth of prophesies are about to be fulfilled, but not in the way anyone expected...and conspiracies and political intrigue surround it all. By any measure, the final days of Christ's life and the weeks and months immediately following His resurrection are filled with strange and perplexing events, themes, and ideas. If someone made up the story, we might accuse him of sensationalism, yet these historical events are at the turning point in redemptive history. In this series of messages, learn how God used these strange ideas to accomplish His great plan of redeeming mankind and reconciling us to Himself through Christ's death and resurrection.

The gold Lungaard mines from John Owen’s work gives us hope, renewed love for Christ, and an approach to holiness through faith in Him in spite of our sinful state.
By revisiting the profound writings of John Owen, Lungaard updates the exposition, outlines, arguments and illustrations to bring this rich understanding of the Bible to the contemporary world.
