Part 1 - My Private Nation (Andy Stanley)
In the days and weeks preceding the first Easter, the high priest Caiaphas stood in the presence of Jesus, the Savior of the world. But he refused to abandon his quest for control and surrender to his Creator. It's easy to dismiss Caiaphas as a fool, but what have we put in the place of God? John 12:17-19, 11:47-53, 10:17-18
Part 2 - The Pretender (Andy Stanley)
In the Easter story, Judas tried to get Jesus to do what he wanted, without regard for Jesus’ ministry and mission. That may seem ridiculous, but there’s a little Judas in all of us. Matthew 19:27, 26:6-16, 27:3-5; John 13:21, 27-28, 31
Part 3 - Twelve Feet of Separation (Andy Stanley)
If you were taught to believe in a personal God who is all-knowing and all powerful, how can you not turn your frustration on him when life gets difficult? Luke 23:32-46
