Why Did Jesus Need to Die? [Romans 3:23-24]

April 1, 2018


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/01/2018, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Romans 3:23-24

Description:

Why did Jesus go to the cross?

There are many reasons that Jesus went to the cross. There are human reasons such as Judas Iscariot betraying Him and the Sanhedrin wanting to kill him. …But those reasons see the cross from the perspective of man of things that happened to Jesus – they don’t ultimately answer the question “why.” Because obviously, He had escaped the grasp of evil men before.

SBC logo 204x204Today on our Easter Sunday Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao rightfully sharpens our thinking on this question and shows us that the cross wasn’t just a thing that happened …it was necessary. Jesus didn’t just go to the cross, He needed to go to the cross…He needed to die. For that was His purpose in taking on flesh. So perhaps a better question we need to ask is “Why did Jesus need to die?”

Good Friday Service 2018

March 30, 2018

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/30/2018

Description: Good Friday. Arguably the most solemn day on the Christian calendar – a day that could hardly be classified as “good” just over 2000 years ago. …But from our vantage point – as we sit on this side of the Resurrection – there is no better way to describe it. 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we invite you to pull up a virtual pew, and join our little country church for our 2018 Good Friday worship service. May the mixture of scripture reading, congregational hymn singing, and church family instrumentals allow you to remember and rejoice in all that Christ has done on our behalf… and that it is indeed good.

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/29/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Reformation Sunday

Key Text: Jude 3-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther took out a hammer and nailed 95 theses to the castle church door in Wittenberg – an act that would catalyze debate and usher in radical change in the church.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes a moment to recognize this significant milestone in church history: the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Indeed, the reformers of yesteryear have left us with a great body of knowledge about God and the church and the state of man; but it leaves us wondering if any tasks remain. Is there anything left for us to do?
