Coram Deo: Daily Meditations on God’s Presence - Friday, November 8, 2013

Preparing for the Passover

Matthew 26:17–19

Some preachers and scholars have long portrayed Jesus as a helpless victim of events, one who is caught off-guard by His arrest and crucifixion. Today’s passage, among many others, indicates that this view is mistaken. Our Savior’s death is no accident of history, it occurred according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God and of His Christ. He is the sovereign Lord of history who controls all things even until this very day.

For further study:

Psalm 103:19

The Bible in a year:

Jeremiah 49–50

For the weekend:

Jeremiah 51–Lam. 4
