Mark 14:53-65, Matthew 27:24-26
We relish irony – when some device turns to produce an opposite effect. Often a smirk or a chuckle comes, but some of us even fall out of chairs or guffaw like a horse. We may attribute irony to God’s orchestration or we may simply see it as collision of circumstances – but likely sense a combination.
The story of the last days of Jesus’ life turns to its tragic (and ultimately, ironic) end. Yet, even here we find hope through an utterly unanticipated series of events that propel HIM toward execution.
A kiss to betray. Charging the Son of God as a blasphemer. Killing one who has recently re-given life (think Lazarus). The crowd’s defiant chant of Matthew 27:25.
If the story didn’t sicken one, one might smirk or chuckle.
What We Are
The Christian Student Fellowship (a.k.a. "The Campus House") is a group of men and women committed to knowing our Savior and serving HIM as a community on the campus of East Tennessee State University. Our House is just across University Parkway from ETSU's Public Safety at 829 W. Pine Street. Read More...
We are the Campus House (officially the Christian Student Fellowship). We worship together at IMMERSE every Wednesday at 7pm through discussion of the Bible (see left column), through songs led by our student worship band, and through prayer. During the rest of the week, we have small group Bible studies (called Invest Groups), a free lunch every Tuesday, and World Cafe with our world-famous Chai Tea every Friday! Plus, we get together just to hang out every day of the week.
If you are new to campus or just looking for something to do, drop by and say hello! We'll be glad to meet you, and we may even make a sundae or a pot of coffee for you.
Description: Second and fourth Saturdays, we take international students to Walmart. Please let us know you're coming by Friday at noon. Meet at the fountain in front of the library Saturday morning at 10.
