“He saved others. Why can’t he save himself?” That’s how some religious leaders mocked Jesus as He suffered and was dying on the cross.
“Alas, and did my Savior bleed. And did my Savior die?” This was the worst thing in all of human history. The God-Man, who had never sinned, was dying. Falsely accused. Wrongly put on the cross.
And yet. And yet. The greatest of all reversals took place. The devil was defeated. The God-Man did die in the place of sinners. And that death was approved of by God the Father when Jesus was bodily was raised from the dead.
Talk about a great reversal!
