Jesus' Cross Defended Historically and Theologically: The Mark Series pt 64 (15:15-39)
On one side we have skeptics who want to easily dismiss much of the biblical account of Jesus’ crucifixion. On the other side we have “progressive Christian” teachers who want to take away essential theological truths about the meaning of the cross of Christ. I’m tackling all of that today. I find it genuinely intimidating to be speaking on the topic of the death of our Lord, since I don’t know how any man could do true justice to the glory and horror of the cross, but I pray that God uses this to bless you and draw you closer to Him.
This is part 64 of the Mark Series, going verse by verse through the Gospel of Mark. Today we are in chapter 14:53-72.

This is my long teaching on Isaiah 53, where I not only explain it’s significance but defend it against the claims of some prominent anti-missionaries (yeah, that’s a real thing). https://youtu.be/Ng0HMOs7ky0
