The Rev. Patrick Schlabs | Isaiah 52:13-53:12
Surprises are often a good thing, but when they run counter to expectations, they can quickly turn sour. The people of Israel were expecting a deliverer, and the surprise of Jesus presented a sudden solution to Roman oppression. This surprise reaches its climax at Jesus’ triumphal entry to Jerusalem, yet how does the following week turn sour, and what does this reveal about Israel’s broken expectations? Join Patrick Schlabs as he walks through Jerusalem’s gate and encounters the great surprise of history.
