Sermon Notes
When asked why climbers risk life and limb in the conquest of Everest, British
mountaineer George Mallory simply responded, “Because it’s there.” Life could be
characterized as a climbing expedition punctuated by periods of euphoric ascent
and crushing descent. Thus, the peaks we must climb remain both terrifying and
mystifying.
It is no wonder that the imagery of mountains plays such a prominent role in scripture, from the theophany at Sinai, to the victory at Carmel. Mountains were places
that displayed YWHW’s power and majesty. But the paradigm would shift with the
arrival of a carpenter from the Galilean hill country. For in Jesus’ ministry, hilltops
would become spaces of redemption and reconciliation.
As a Christian community we believe that the most important event in world history
occurred at the top of mount Golgotha. This morning we come together to examine
the first steps of Jesus’ climbing expedition. My hope is that we choose to scale the
mountains of ignorance and indifference “Because He is here.”
May God guide us.
Miguel Mendez
Study Pastor
