God was not finished. The plot took a dramatic turn. The good news of God burst forth in all its fullness. After three days in the cold tomb, life coursed again through the body of Jesus. The penalty now paid, justice now satisfied, and death now defeated, he arose. The story would not conclude here and the revolution would not end. Indeed, it had just begun. He rallied the astonished disciples, explained the incredible events, and showed them how all that had happened had been predicted by the prophets.
55:8) He broke the silence with the cry of a baby, born in a manger in the town of Bethlehem, at the zenith of the Roman Empire, an empire which represented the epitome of mankind’s corrupt rule over the earth, with its lust for power, violence, greed, and oppression. God decided it was time, time for a revolution, a revolution to overthrow, once and for all, the perverted kingdoms conceived out of mankind’s selfishness and greed. It was time to reveal God’s values, God’s justice, and God’s way.
Jesus demonstrated the hallmarks of God’s new kingdom—feeding the hungry, healing the sick, caring for the poor, casting out evil spirits, and demonstrating the unconditional love of God to all he encountered. No man had ever lived or spoken this way. And he prepared the twelve to carry on after he left. But mankind was so twisted in its rebellion that even God’s own Son was rejected—by the world and by Israel. The evil one from the garden of Eden was again trying to thwart the goodness of God.
