Modern Lutheran Quote of the Day

Here is the real point of the whole scene: His authority comes from being killed and raised. He is the temple. He is the sacrifice. He — who stands with scourge in hand — has the right to give away the Holy Spirit because He is scourged and killed as the sacrifice of mercy that the temple shows and delivers to all people. He is raised again that all people might have safe access to the Father through Him. That is the zeal that consumes Him and saves us.
