‍“Jesus ‍& ‍The ‍Woman ‍Taken ‍In ‍Adultery” ‍- ‍(John ‍8:1-11) ‍- ‍The ‍scribes ‍and ‍Pharisees ‍were ‍trying ‍to ‍catch ‍Jesus ‍in ‍a ‍trap. ‍Yet ‍Jesus, ‍as ‍was ‍so ‍often ‍the ‍case ‍(e.g., ‍Mat ‍21:23-27), ‍“turned ‍the ‍tables” ‍on ‍His ‍accusers ‍and ‍caught ‍them ‍in ‍a ‍trap ‍instead! ‍At ‍the ‍same ‍time, ‍He ‍demonstrates ‍compassion ‍for ‍the ‍sinner ‍as ‍well ‍as ‍a ‍deep ‍and ‍abiding ‍respect ‍for ‍the ‍the ‍law ‍that ‍He ‍and ‍His ‍Father ‍had ‍authored. ‍MP3 ‍/ ‍PPT ‍/  KEYNOTE ‍/ ‍PDF  - ‍5/25/2014

‍”Judging ‍Righteous ‍Judgment” ‍- ‍(John ‍7:1-24) ‍- ‍Every ‍impenitent ‍sinner ‍knows ‍Jesus’ ‍prohibition ‍against ‍Judging ‍in ‍Mat ‍7:1 ‍and ‍quote ‍it ‍often. ‍How ‍ironic ‍that ‍those ‍who ‍do ‍such ‍are ‍the ‍ones ‍who ‍are ‍actally ‍guilty ‍of ‍violating ‍the ‍Lord’s ‍teaching. ‍- ‍MP3 ‍/ ‍PPT ‍/  KEYNOTE ‍/ ‍PDF  - ‍/5/11/2014
