The Passion of Christ
We’re sorry but you missed this offer. It is no longer free or a deal.
What do we make of the sufferings of Christ? How can we grow in our faith by studying those last agonizing moments of Christ’s life? Come along with Luther on this journey from Gethsemane to the empty tomb. Be enlightened and inspired in your own faith and be challenged to share this Good News with others.
From Luther’s introduction:
If we know this; if we understand our sinful condition, which would have plunged us without escape into eternal damnation, had not Christ become our Savior, we will duly appreciate the importance and value of the suffering of our Lord, and will be comforted thereby when fear of God’s wrath, on account of our sins, would overcome us. Such a consideration of the passion of Christ will not only move our eyes to tears and our hearts to pity, as is the tendency of the popish sermons on this subject, but will prompt us to feel, deep down in our soul, sorrow at the terrible results of sin, for which no creature, but only the Son of God could make atonement by His sufferings and death; and likewise it will cause us great joy because we will realize that this sacrifice was made for us, that God will now no longer reject nor condemn us, as we have merited by our sins, but that He is now reconciled to us through the precious and vicarious death of His Son, who gave Himself as a victim in our behalf so that our sins are now forgiven and we are made heirs of eternal life.
