Exodus 1:1-2:22; Psalm 31:1-24; Matthew 27:45-66

For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Hebrews 12:3

The Lord Jesus su?ered the continual slander directed at Him. Denying His eternal Sonship, they sneered, “He is just the carpenter’s son.” Contradicting His heavenly origin, they mocked, “Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?” (John 1:46). Repudiating His holy character, they sco?ed, “He is deceiving the people.” Alone at the cross, reproach broke His heart (Ps. 69:20). Yet today what joy must fill His heart when someone trusts Him as Saviour, proclaiming “I believe you Lord.” Have you? —George Ferrier

Bearing shame and scoffing rude, in my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood; Hallelujah! What a Saviour! —P. Bliss
