HUMAN REJECTION IS CRUSHED BY DIVINE EXALTATION
People often look to the judgment of experts. The opinion of experts can greatly influence the general population. That poses a problem when it comes to Christ. The world’s experts and culturally elite generally see little value in Christ and his Word. Thankfully, Christ tells us to expect this. He also reminds us that when it comes to judgments about him and his kingdom, only one opinion matters. God the Father would render the final verdict about Christ and his work when he raised his Son from the dead. This week, we learn to evaluate the world’s experts properly. They might see heaven’s greatest treasure as trash. Fine. That treasure remains ours for the taking!
