“Disciples at the End?”

John 19:38-42 CSB

Main Point: If “making disciples” is our church mission, then we

need to understand how it can happen …sometimes.

•The importance of the burial of Jesus 1 Cor.15:3-4 & 17

•Discipleship can be:

1. PREDICTABLE 2 Tim.2:2, Rom.10:17

A pathway as a church:

For many: 1 Cor.1:26-27


a) Joseph of Arimathea Mt.27:57, Mk.15:43 & Lk.23:50-51

b) Nicodemus Jn.3:1-21, Jn.7:50-51 & Jn.19:39-42

3. GRADUAL 2 Pet.3:18, Jn.7:45-53 & Isa.53:9 (Jn.1:29 & 3:14)

4. COSTLY Jn.19:39

•Big Question: What changed these two?

The Answer: Jn.12:42, 23-25 & 32

“Inevitably, there can be no such thing as secret discipleship, for either the secrecy destroys the discipleship, or the discipleship destroys the secrecy.”
—William Barclay
