This was the Sunday morning message from Princess Chapel Church in Ashland, KY by the Pastor, Douglas Salyer. This sermon was titled; HIS HOUR IS OUR HOUR.
The message text is taken from the Gospel of John 10:11-18, with exegesis from 2:1-5 through 17:1-3. Showing Jesus as the Good Shepherd that lays down His life for the sheep in His hour.
However His hour was our hour, but what exactly what does that term mean when Jesus says, 'mine hour?"
Many say it means - The hour for working miracles.
Ewald writes, the hour of His full sense of Messianic power.
L√ľcke states, For the revelation of His person and glory.
But according to Bruno Bauer, His hour must always mean the hour of His work on the Cross.
John 17:1-3 1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2¬†As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3¬†And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
* Jesus told His mother in John 2:4 ‚Äď mine hour is not yet come.
* Did you see what He said in John 17:1 ‚Äď Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
This was His Hour and Our Hour. Starting with this High Priestly Prayer, through the trial, to the Cross, to the tomb and culminating with His Glorious Resurrection.
What the Father sent Him to do, He accomplished.
2 Corinthians 5:21 21¬†For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
