Current Series: Changing Expectations

God promised a mighty Deliverer. The expectations of what that Deliverer would look like and what that Deliverer would do were completely shifted when God fulfilled his promises.

Week 1: A Righteous Branch // Jeremiah 33:14-16

The Jewish expectation for the Messiah was that he would be a good king, like David. But David was also ruthless when his personal desires overtook him: he was a murderer, a philanderer, and an artful and scheming thief. God, through Jeremiah, promised, “I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line.” The surprising fulfillment was a human “branch” from David’s line, but he was not only good in some aspects of his life, he was perfect in everything! He was Jesus.

Week 2: A Refiner // Malachi 3:1-4

Some Jews—the Pharisees and teachers of the Law—expected a Messiah who would be pleased with their outward expressions and right acts—their performance. But Jesus called these religious performers “hypocrites” because those actions meant nothing when the inside was still polluted. The Messiah they got was one who would purify them from the inside out.
