Bring Back the King

Jesus’ Cry of Dereliction on the Cross is not just the heartbreaking lament of an abandoned man. . . What we see and hear in Jesus’ death is the decisive intervention of God to deliver his children from the unspeakable fate of ultimate abandonment... [I]n this event, in this godforsaken death, the cosmic scale has been conclusively tipped in the opposite direction, so that sin and evil and death are not the last word and never will be again.
