    What's My Position Slides, 9/1/13 What's My Position Slides, 9/1/13 Presentation Transcript

    • In  those  days  when  the  number  of  disciples  was   increasing,  the  Hellenis9c  Jews  among  them   complained  against  the  Hebraic  Jews  because   their  widows  were  being  overlooked  in  the  daily   distribu9on  of  food.  So  the  Twelve  gathered  all   the  disciples  together  and  said,  “It  would  not  be   right  for  us  to  neglect  the  ministry  of  the  word   of  God  in  order  to  wait  on  tables.  
    • Brothers  and  sisters,  choose  seven  men  from   among  you  who  are  known  to  be  full  of  the   Spirit  and  wisdom.  We  will  turn  this   responsibility  over  to  them  and  will  give  our   aDen9on  to  prayer  and  the  ministry  of  the   word.”  This  proposal  pleased  the  whole  group.   They  chose  Stephen,  a  man  full  of  faith  and  of   the  Holy  Spirit;  also  Philip,  Procorus,  Nicanor,   Timon,  Parmenas,  and  Nicolas  from  An9och,  a   convert  to  Judaism.    
    • They  presented  these  men  to  the  apostles,  who   prayed  and  laid  their  hands  on  them.  So  the   word  of  God  spread.  The  number  of  disciples  in   Jerusalem  increased  rapidly,  and  a  large  number   of  priests  became  obedient  to  the  faith.     Acts  6:1-­‐7  (NIV)  
    • Why  did  the  word  of  God  spread?     Because  people  did  what  they  were  wired  to  do.    
    • Six  days  before  the  Passover,  Jesus  therefore   came  to  Bethany,  where  Lazarus  was,  whom   Jesus  had  raised  from  the  dead.  So  they  gave  a   dinner  for  him  there.  Martha  served,  and   Lazarus  was  one  of  those  reclining  with  him  at   table.  Mary  therefore  took  a  pound  of  expensive   ointment  made  from  pure  nard,  and  anointed   the  feet  of  Jesus  and  wiped  his  feet  with  her   hair.    
    • The  house  was  filled  with  the  fragrance  of  the   perfume.  But  Judas  Iscariot,  one  of  his  disciples   (he  who  was  about  to  betray  him),  said,  “Why   was  this  ointment  not  sold  for  three  hundred   denarii  and  given  to  the  poor?”  He  said  this,  not   because  he  cared  about  the  poor,  but  because   he  was  a  thief,  and  having  charge  of  the   moneybag  he  used  to  help  himself  to  what  was   put  into  it.    
    • Jesus  said,  “Leave  her  alone,  so  that  she  may   keep  it  for  the  day  of  my  burial.  For  the  poor  you   always  have  with  you,  but  you  do  not  always   have  me.”   When  the  large  crowd  of  the  Jews  learned  that   Jesus  was  there,  they  came,  not  only  on  account   of  him  but  also  to  see  Lazarus,  whom  he  had   raised  from  the  dead.    
    • So  the  chief  priests  made  plans  to  put  Lazarus  to   death  as  well,  because  on  account  of  him  many   of  the  Jews  were  going  away  and  believing  in   Jesus.   John  12:1-­‐11  (ESV)
