The Lord Over Suffering
Note: Missing sermon audio.
The great irony of our passage is that it was on the Sabbath, that same day that the Pharisees plot murder. They choose to take life on the very day God made to give life! How ironic, how ugly, how insidious, how corrupt.
But Jesus’s ministry, as we’ve been seeing, exposes oppression and dethrones tyrants, and dismantles religious hypocrites, and takes down corrupt leaders. Jesus is the one who can and does and will deliver us from all evil.
