The Final Week
Not the Jesus They Wanted
People don’t reject the Bible because it contradicts itself. They reject the Bible because it contradicts them.
Jesus didn’t fit into the box they’d built for Him.
To this day, the Jews struggle with the idea that Isaiah 53 describes the Messiah who would suffer and die for our sins.
The Jesus people get isn’t always the Jesus they want. And so, there are people who mangle the Bible to get what they want!
Jesus was the mighty King, the LORD of hosts, the One who VOLUNTARILY stepped down out of heaven to pay the price for our sins.
But the Cross was more about God’s love than it was about our guilt.
