The Killing of a King

June 17, 2018

Passage: John 18:28-19:16 Speaker: Pastor Lukus Counterman Series: John - That You May Believe

Length: 52 mins Plays: 1170

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Jesus is the Passover Lamb, the King, and truth, who became the redemptive sacrifice for the world when he, the Son of Man, was exchanged for the \"sons of mankind\" in order to release them from their enslavement to sin, death, and the foreign power of this world. This text continues to depict the events surrounding the sacrificial death of the Son of God. Jesus has already been arrested and interrogated by the Jewish authorities; in this pericope, he is taken and handed over to the Roman authorities who perform the equivalent of a Roman trial of Jesus so as to respond to the legal requirements and political tension shared between them. The narrative intentionally contrasts Christ with two significant characters and what they represent: \"the Jews\" (representing the authorities of Judaism) and Pilate (representing the power of Rome).
