A simple message
In this text from I Corinthians 15:3-4, Paul boils the "good news" down to just three things:
- Christ died for our sins
- He was buried
- He rose again
But ancient prophecy is behind the message
The prophetic texts may seem deep and difficult to construe. Probably that was God's intention... in order to keep the forces of evil from knowing exactly what would happen when the Christ appeared. Remember that Satan tried to tempt Jesus with the kingdoms of this world... did he not understand exactly who He was?
If they had known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
As Paul said in I Corinthians 2:7-8,
"...we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
"Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory."
The Bible is not a textbook
But God's plan was for the crucifixion to be the path of redemption for all of us, so it was NECESSARY for Jesus to go to the Cross. Therefore, God rarely spelled out His plan point by point like a math textbook, but used much storytelling, symbolism, cryptic visions and prophecies to gradually color in His grand picture, rather like a connect-the-dots approach!
