An exposition of Mark 14:43-72. This message by Pastor Rod Harris was delivered at Trinity Baptist Church on Sunday morning, March 16, 2008.
Understand that Jesus is at no point in this story the victim. He is always the victor. We see in today’s message the unfolding plan of a loving, gracious God, redeeming his people. Notice especially:
- His sovereignty in the face of betrayal.
- His majesty in response to hatred and ridicule.
- His love in response to weakness and failure.
This is the God we worship. This is why we gather to sing, pray and celebrate; because he is the sovereign, majestic and loving savior. In him find hope, forgiveness and life.
