Easter 2014 - Luke 22April 06, 2014 Peter Mead
Jesus was completely innocent. Barabbas was completely guilty. One walked free. The other went to the cross. As a church we want to be deeply stirred by the centrepiece of history, and the central feature of God's great plan to rescue sinners like Barabbas, like you, and like me. Jesus was absolutely innocent, as proven through two pairs of trials in Luke, but even so, Jesus knew he must be numbered with the transgressors. If we want to be transformed by the glorious love of the Trinity, then we must be sure to spend time this Easter with our eyes focused on Jesus and His sufferings for us.
