The Gallows Speech of the Son of Man, Part 6: Dying the Death of Radical Love

00:00 00:00

Proposition: two realities about how to die the death of radical love, so that your life will be lived with cosmic significance.

1st reality (of radical love)—you must know the priority of love (vv. 9-12)

Four aspects that explain why love is a priority:

1st aspect of love: the foundation of love (v. 9)

2nd aspect of love: the experience of love (v. 10)

3rd aspect of love: the motivation of love (v. 11)

4th aspect of love: the exhortation to love (v. 12)

2nd reality—you must know the power to love (vv. 13-17)

Three (more) aspects of love that explain how we get the power to love:

Aspect #1—the manifestation of love (v. 13)

Aspect #2—the identification of those who love (vv. 14-16)

  • The friends of Christ obey Christ (v. 14)
  • The friends of Christ know Trinitarian secrets (v. 15)
  • The friends of Christ were chosen by Christ (v. 16)

Aspect #3—the command to love—look at the text (v. 17)
