Here are this week's sermon notes.  I covered the triumphal entry into Jerusalem and the story of Bartimaeus, taking them in the opposite order of the text.  I hope it's helpful to you to understand what kind of King and kingdom the Bible talks about when Jesus is on the scene.  As always, you can find these notes in PDF and the sermon audio at  We also have a podcast on iTunes.

Prediction and Picture
Mark 10.46-11.11

What kind of King and Kingdom?

  • What Jesus said would happen did.
  • 500 years before, what God said would happen did.

  • The contrast between kings and kingdoms couldn’t be clearer.
  • Latent within His conspiracy is a confrontation with the powers of this world.

Luke 4.18-19 – The King comes for PRECISELY those who cannot help themselves

The Picture
  • Some think Jesus is disinterested, but He cares about you.
  • Bartimaeus sense of desperation was matched by his sense of abandon.
