The Rejection of the Hebrew Messiah
"We have no king but Caesar"
The Eternal City
The Hebrews rejected
their Messiah as was foretold by their prophets. The rejection was God's
plan to save the whole world. The King became the Passover lamb so that
death would "pass over" anyone who believes.
7 - He was oppressed, and he was
afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the
slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not
14 - And it was the preparation of the
passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold
37 - O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, [thou]
that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee,
how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen
gathereth her chickens under [her] wings, and ye would not!
