When we think of a king, we don’t usually picture a man riding on a donkey, hanging on a cross, or lying in a tomb. Each represents a scene from Jesus’ life, however, and Alistair Begg describes how they fulfilled prophecy and led to redemption from sin for all who believe. Even in His death and resurrection, the responses to Jesus were mixed, and it is the same today. Unless God softens our hearts to see our sin and need of a Savior, we will only view Jesus as an unwelcome intruder.
1Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.
