There is heaps of theology out there, in books, courses, articles and videos about Christ as the Servant King. Most of the material focuses on chapters 40 to 55 in the book of Isaiah in the Bible. Consequently, when I came to write this post, I wondered what contribution I could make to a topic that has been written about so much already.

Well, this is it, the crux of Christianity. If Jesus weren’t a crucified saviour there would be nothing to believe in except some wise teachings. But He is that greatest of oxymorons, a hero that died, and came back to glorious life. He is still the great ‘I am’, His death at the hands of the Roman authorities was not the end.
As Christians, we have brilliant news to share. Every person, from each culture and country, can have hope and freedom. Their sins are forgiven and everything that causes pain and destruction has been overcome. It is incredible, but Jesus victory over sin and darkness took place a long time ago. Rather than generating excitement, telling people about his death and resurrection can seem like passing on old news.
