The servant will bring justice. The servant will also be meek. Can these things coexist?
There has been a lot of confusion about how to do mission. Here is my suggestion.
What do we know about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ?
The Messiah brought the Kingdom of God. What does that mean?
Jesus has the authority to forgive sins but who is Jesus willing to forgive?
Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness is a recreation of Israel’s wandering in the wilderness. Jesus succeeded where we failed showing that he is without sin.
Jesus is alive just as he said. Happy Easter!
The religious elite challenge his power while the Romans challenge his authority. It looked pretty dark there for a few days but Jesus’ followers did their best with the knowledge they had.
Jesus is taken before a corrupt government in order to stand trial. The people choose Barabbas revealing their intentions all along.
Jesus brought swords in order to not use them. We ought to meditate on this strategy while we take communion.
