The King Who Suffers for His People

Greg Gilbert reflects on the incredible trajectory of the Bible, looking at themes of God's presence and promises, and how they lead to the saving sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ.

"By the end of David’s life, it was abundantly clear that he wasn’t the one who was finally going to bring salvation to the world. In his wake, the kingdom split, Assyria invaded the north, and king after king proved to be colossal failures to meet God’s standard for kingship in Israel. Through all these centuries, though—at least four of them—the prophets picked up these threads of kingship, union, representation, and suffering, and began to weave them together into a breathtaking picture of a King who would represent his people by suffering for them, and so save them from their sins."
