"Jesus Christ and Him Crucified" Matthew 27:27-56 (Matthew: The Power of the King)

After nearly a year in the Gospel of Matthew, we have finally reached its climatic scene: Jesus go to the cross to die. While some in the church have grown bored with death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, we believe that this is earth-shattering reality is our only hope in life and death. This week we will walk through Matthew's portrayal of the crucifixion scene in all it's upside-down irony. While the surrounding characters all speak in mockery and condemnation, their words ring more true than they know. Come be reminded of God's foolish wisdom and His powerless power.
