The Three Bowls of Jesus’ Last 24 Hours on Earth

I like the comparison and contrast of the Three Bowls of Jesus’ Last 24 Hours on Earth

Wash basin: Jesus Washes the disciples feet (at the Last Supper).  He showed us that we are to be servants of others.

Bowl of bread: broken and shared together at the Last Supper. Fellowship. Remembrance. Institution of the Last Supper instituted.

Pilate’s wash basin: After dealing with the crowd, Pilate washed his hands (in front of the crowd)…and sent Jesus to the cross. This one is deeper (and needs to be developed).

Ekklesia, church, religion

Sermon idea.

talk about the progression Ekklesia > church > religion

assembly of believers is the foundation (and this should always be remembered-keeping the main thing the main thing). (see also http://faith.drjimo.net/ekklesia/)

talk about the pros and cons of each (especially church, religion).

Jesus at 2 am has a good podcast Turning Theology into Church 03: Embracing Conflict, 1/27/15.
