GETHSEMANE SERMON OUTLINES

by Jerry Vines

We come this morning to one of the most sacred scenes in all of the Bible. We come to the place which is called Gethsemane. Gethsemane was located just outside Jerusalem, across from a little brook named Kidron. At this particular time of the year the brook Kidron was a very full stream. There was a channel that was used to flow all of the excess and all of the things that had been...

When I originally started working on this sermon, I literally picked its title out of the air. Since I'm using basketball imagery in this series of sermons… and since the Garden of Gethsemane is the final action of Jesus before His arrest… I felt a need to use a basketball term that described something a team would do when their game hung in the balance. And ''Full Court...

Our Lord had been sitting at the table of happy fellowship with His disciples, talking to them in a very solemn and impressive manner; He then delivered those choice discourses which are recorded by John, and offered that wonderful prayer which deserves ever to be called "The Lord's prayer." Knowing all that was to befall Him, He left the Upper Room with His disciples, and started to go to His usual place of quiet retreat...

In a sense, the two greatest battles of history were both fought in gardens. You will remember, in the Garden of Eden, Adam chose to disobey God, bringing sin to the human race. He failed to resist temptation; instead, he chose his will over the will of God. In the Garden of Gethsemane, the Second Adam, Jesus, chose God's will over His own (human) will. Although the pain and spiritual misery of the...

If I were to ask you to name the top five spiritual experiences that you have had since your salvation, what would those experiences be? One of those memorial spiritual experiences was that December Sunday night in 1958 when I surrendered to God's call to preach the gospel. It was almost 40 years ago, but I can remember it as if it were yesterday. Another spiritual experience...

In Gethsemane, Jesus was ''sorrowful and troubled'' (v. 37). Luke writes, ''And begin in an agony he prayed more earnestly; his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground'' (Luke 22:44). ''Though the word 'like' may indicate that this is to be understood metaphorically, there are both ancient and modern accounts on record of people sweating blood-a condition known as hematidrosis, where...

In our personal life we realize that in Matt 6:9 our Lord gave us what many refer to as the Lord's Prayer, yet many consider it the Disciples' Prayer. John 17 has been referred to as the real Lord's Prayer. Chuck Swindoll wrote a small book entitled, Intimacy with the Almighty where he attempted to help us realize what needed to happen in our...

Is accepting Jesus's sacrifice for me really the only way to heaven? Well, there's one other way to enjoy that perfect relationship with the Father in heaven: to be born sinless and go your whole life without ever sinning! But since everyone is born of fallen parents and experiences an imperfect human life in a fallen world, we all need Jesus! Jesus lived his life as an example to us of how...

JESUS CHRIST on the eve of His crucifixion, sought to console His followers. As they walked from Jerusalem late at night to cross the Kidron Valley and enter the Garden of Gethsemane, He urged them, ''Let not your hearts be troubled...'' Gethsemane means oil or olive press. It was located at the base of the Mount of Olives and...

I want you to take God's word and I want you to turn with me please this morning to John chapter 6 and we're going to look in verses 70 and 71. I suppose almost as beautiful as the music we've heard from the choirs and the soloists is the turning of those pages as you're finding God's word. You'll always get so much more from any message. If you keep your Bible open...
