Our Story With God, Episode 29: The Passion

Jesus spent several years with His disciples and repeatedly told them that He would be killed, and yet somehow they never seemed to actually hear what He was saying.  All of Scripture had been pointing to a single moment when the Messiah would become the sacrifice.  As Jesus was arrested and endured multiple interrogations and beatings, He never complained about the treatment He was receiving, unjust though it was.  The few words that He spoke remind us that He was in charge, that He had control of the entire situation.  And as He hung on a cross to die, He did so willingly to provide salvation for every individual who was involved - each guard who abused Him, each so-called authority who judged Him, and each sinner who made it necessary for His blood to spill.
