... that Christ Died for Us
A Sermon on Acts 8:32-35
Now the passage of the Scripture that he was reading was this:
“Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter
and like a lamb before its shearer is silent,
so he opens not his mouth.
In his humiliation justice was denied him.
Who can describe his generation?
For his life is taken away from the earth.”
And the eunuch said to Philip, “About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?” Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus. (ESV)
Jesus was not as expected; the Greek idea; modern understanding of the Cross; the event that was prophesied; the significance of the death of Christ.
