#2 In The Series "ON A HILL TOO FAR AWAY - Fifteen Protestant Truths About the Death of God the Son"

Jesus never suffered to evoke our pity. So the question remains - perhaps left over from last week's teaching - Is the suffering of Jesus pointless? Is it merely the fact of Jesus' death that has theological significance? And the answer to those questions is no. The suffering of Jesus, both in His life and in His death matters to our Christian life today. There is deep, sturdy, precious, theological meaning and accomplishment in the suffering of Jesus. That suffering found its climax on the cross, but it had its beginnings in a Baby who couldn't find the comfort of a decent birthplace and a life that knew little but poverty, hard work, and later on, loneliness, rejection, and brutal agony.


Why this path of suffering? Why such a painful, bloody end to a perfect life? What was accomplished by the actual suffering of Jesus? I don't just mean His final death. I mean the agonizing path that brought Him to His death.
