IT IS BETTER THAT ONE MAN DIE FOR THE PEOPLE! (John 11:45-53)Mark Bernthal, February 18, 2018
Part of the Lent series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
IRONY OF THE PASSION
Sermon Text: John 11:45-53
IT IS BETTER THAT ONE MAN DIE FOR THE PEOPLE!
I: This shows the guilt of Jesus’ enemies.
II: This shows the love of God.
During these Sunday morning Lenten sermons we’re going to hear about irony. One dictionary defines irony as “a combination of circumstances or a result that is the opposite of what . . . might be expected.” Another states it is “a figure of speech in which the literal meaning is the opposite of the intended meaning.” Jesus’ passion is filled with irony---situations that are different from what you would expect. Today we are focusing on unintentional irony.
