Read Psalm 22 & Isaiah 53 This Week
Your Homework For This Week
During this past Sunday’s message, we read John’s account of the crucifixion. John’s priority was to demonstrate Jesus; sovereign control over even His own death. How was this demonstrated? As Jesus fulfilled the Scriptures over and over again even in His dying moments. The Romans and Jews and Satan were all playing right into God’s hands. Two of the most prominently quoted Old Testament passages are Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22.
Your “homework” for this week is to read through both of these passages. Meditate on them. Listen for the echoes of the cross. See the wisdom of God. Marvel at the sovereignty of God over history. Allow your understand of them to help you appreciate the magnificence of God’s unbroken plan of salvation that began millennia before the cross itself.
