In best-selling scripts, the hero beats the villain and rides off into the sunset. Our text today reveals a different scene - the hero dies. however, this is not the final chapter or the closing scene. He will live again!
The Death of the Savior
Mark 15: 33-41
The text we have read today is contrary to the narrative most popular scripts of our day follow. In best selling books and block-buster movies, the hero always beats the villain and rides off into the sunset. Rarely, if ever, does the hero die in the script.
