Can we see God in humiliation? Can we see God in human brokenness?
I don’t have to tell you that we have a hard time giving things up. It’s human nature. And it’s everywhere in the story of Christ’s death.
And this is not something we want to hear. It means that we, too, are responsible for our communal sins, even if we as individuals haven’t committed them.
If this were just an isolated incident, I’d think God might have made a miscalculation. But it’s a pattern that’s repeated over and over and over in the Biblical narrative—who matters to God is largely seperate from who matters to human beings.
Even God’s plans don’t go according to plan.
