Who Was There When Jesus Died?
This was my question as I watched all the pageantry surrounding the death of the Queen. The answer came back straight away – Isaiah 53 – the prophecy of the suffering of Messiah: ‘He is despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.’
This led me to give a talk comparing how people reacted to the death of the Queen with the death of Jesus. No disrespect to the Queen, but just thinking about what happened to Jesus on the cross and what it means for us today moved me to tears.
