Session 5 of the DFW Conference The Crucified King.
We could reduce the five messages of this conference to two headings: Our Lord’s Sufferings and Our Lord’s Glory. Our Lord suffered when He entered Jerusalem, He suffered when He confronted His enemies, He suffered by being betrayed, and He suffered at His wrath-bearing death. Various things came upon Him that He personally did not deserve or earn, though He voluntarily took upon Himself the office of Mediator which brought with it various types of suffering. All of His sufferings were vicarious—that is, for us and for our salvation. And while suffering, He never sinned, thus His obedience was for us and for our salvation as well. But Matt. 28:1-10 is different from the previous passages considered in this conference; it assumes that the King has conquered death in these words: “He has risen”! Whereas the previous messages dealt with various aspects of our Lord’s sufferings, this message announces to us that He has entered His glory.
