I recently “discovered” the website of Michael Battle and I have been reading through a good number of his posts. Michael’s website is linked here. I currently don’t know that much about Michael other than he is an American and lives in McDonough, Georgia, (I did send him an email requesting additional info), but I can tell you that Michael is very thorough and does his homework in God’s Word. I’ve mentioned before how important context is when studying God’s Word and how equally important it is to take note of every single word that we are given. This is a beautiful post about Jesus being the chief cornerstone that the builders rejected. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Before his death on the cross, Jesus prepared his disciples for the things he was soon to suffer. After his resurrection, Jesus revealed to them how all things written in the Law of Moses, the Psalms, and the Prophets concerning his death and resurrection were fulfilled by the events they had just witnessed.
And he said unto them, these are the words which I spoke unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the Law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning Me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise again the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. ~ Luke 24:44-48
