LENT 2015: Scandal (Series Summary & Week 1)

LENT 2015: Scandal (Week 1)

February 18:  The Plot  Podcast

(Matthew 26:1-5) The chief priests and elders?! The high priest?! During the Passover?! Kill the Son of Man?! The Pharisees' plot was what got the ball rolling on possibly the greatest scandal the world has ever known. Sadly plots to sin like this still happen today in our lives as we plot and scheme to sin against God. Thankfully we know of the gracious plot the Trinity had before time began and put into action to redeem us from our sins.

The President did what?!? The pastor said what?!? Our military did what to the prisoners?! The priest did what to the children?! To me, scandals aren’t just bad things because some bad things we expect to happen. Scandals deal with things we didn’t see coming, things that “shouldn’t” happen the way they do. The events of Jesus’ suffering and death would definitely qualify. But as we know there is more to this scandal than what transpired in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago. The scandal includes us all! Sadly it is the scandal of our sin that caused all that Jesus endured. Yet even greater is the scandal that is God’s grace, his undeserved love for us, that caused him to send his Son, Jesus. During this season of Lent we will unpack The Scandal that took place 2,000 years ago and it’s significance for us still today.
