The Death of God
Today’s passage takes us to the moment that all of Jesus’ life had been building towards, His death. The significance of this moment stretches beyond just one life. Jesus’ crucifixion was the central and defining moment for all of human history. It was the moment that grace took on new meaning, that hope had a clear path blazed, that God’s love proved itself overwhelming, and that the depths of human sinfulness were revealed. As we walk through this text we will examine the themes of suffering, divine irony, and eternal victory.
