The Lenten Journey: "Now Is My Soul Troubled"
Series: The Lenten Journey
Speaker: Brian Zahnd
On three occasions in Galilee, Jesus foretold his death by crucifixion. But in Jerusalem, a few days before his death, Jesus talked about the meaning of his crucifixion. We cannot attempt to understand the meaning of the crucifixion without paying attention to how Jesus understood his death. Jesus interprets the meaning of his crucifixion by saying it will accomplish three things:
1. It will judge the world.
2. It will cast out the ruler of the world.
3. It will draw the whole world to him.
