If you were to do an informal survey asking those around you what they think of the death and resurrection of Jesus, many would shrug it off as nothing more than a collection of strange ideas.

Some Strange IdeasIt could be the plot for a movie: an oppressed nation is looking for a liberator, but there’s a plan in the works to kill him before he can act. An innocent man dies willingly for guilty men. People come back to life from the dead, and a body disappears. Centuries' worth of prophesies were about to be fulfilled, but not in the way anyone expected… and conspiracies and political intrigue surround it all. By any measure, the final days of Christ’s life and the weeks and months immediately following his resurrection were filled with strange and perplexing events, themes, and ideas. If someone made up the story, we might accuse him of sensationalism, yet these historical events are at the turning point in redemptive history. In this series of messages, Alistair Begg explains how God used these strange ideas to accomplish His great plan to redeem mankind and reconcile us to Himself through Christ’s death and resurrection.
