He is alive!
Now that Jesus has died what follows is very surprising.
The death of the Son of God.
Consider the crucifixion of Jesus from Mark's perspective.
Isn't this a bit gratuitous? Why every follower of Christ should know this text.
The crowd cried, "Crucify Him!"
Grace be with all of you.
That infamous denial...
Jesus before His accusers. Toe to toe...
Jesus is alive!
