Rev. Matt Koerber
Main Idea: Jesus is the savior in exile. He is the one God's people were waiting for, but in his life experience he was marginalized.
Problem Condition: We experience the realities of suffering in a broken world and need a savior who can identify with us in our weakness.
I.) Messiah in Exile
(i.) Refuge in Egypt (v.13-15)
(ii.) "Massacre of the Innocents" (v.16-18)
(iii.) Hometown Nazareth (v.19-23)
- The humiliation of Jesus challenges our pride and achievement
- The humiliation of Jesus achieves our salvation and he is able to meet us in weakness
