The Spirit guided each Gospel writer to slow down for the stories that comprise Jesus’ suffering and death for us. Matthew’s Gospel features 141 verses of betrayal, injustice, mockery and death before spending 20 verses on Jesus’ resurrection and glory. Take the strength and life this Jesus is giving you that you too may be strong when life is dark and hard. Sermon based on Matthew 27:11-26.
Background music is a musical setting of Psalm 14 from Christian Worship Supplement by Northwestern Publishing House.
