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?”

What is the Gospel? [1 Corinthians 15]

April 16, 2017


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/16/2017, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 15

SBC logo 204x204Description: The Gospel is the central message of the church and the central figure of the message is Jesus Christ. Yet many in the church can’t define what this message is. Sometimes they even define it in ways that are the opposite to what the Scriptures reveal…ways that don’t lead sinners to salvation but leave them condemned with no good news.

Date: 03/27/2016, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 5:7-8

SBC logo 204x204Description: Most Christians don’t associate Easter with Passover. But with some study, one can see how they are beautifully interwoven into God’s perfect tapestry. The parallel of the Passover Lamb and our Lord Jesus — the perfect sacrificial Lamb of God — helps clarify in our minds the wonder of God’s plan for the salvation of believers.

Your Sorrow Will Be Turned into Joy! [John 16:16-22; 20:1-31]

April 20, 2014

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/20/2014, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: John 16:16-22; 20:1-31

Description:  In this sermon, we look at the promise Jesus made to His disciples in John chapter 16.  He told them that they would be filled with sorrow even as the world rejoices, but that He would turn their sorrow into Joy. Then we look at John chapter 20, to see the fulfillment of that promise and the benediction of peace that Christ pronounced upon His church on that first Easter Sunday and continues to pronounce upon His people today.

The Priest and the Filthy Robe [Luke 24 and Zechariah 3:1-10]

March 31, 2013

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/31/2013, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: Luke 24 and Zechariah 3:1-10

Description:  Easter Sunday, the resurrection of Christ, solves the problem of tension that existed among the Old Testaments prophets concerning the coming of the Messiah.  The prophets prophesied that the coming Messiah would be a suffering servant who would be scourged, smitten, beaten, and pierced and yet he would also be a conquering king.  How could these two apparent contradictions in description possibly be?  The answer is found in Easter.
