Crucified and a Messiah?
A “Crucified Messiah” certainly seems like the least likely combination—an oxymoron if there ever was one! That was certainly the case for the two disciples journeying to Emmaus. They explained to their travel companion (the Risen Jesus): “Jesus of Nazareth was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel” (Luke 24:19-24). “We had hoped…” Clearly, “crucified” and “Messiah” would never have been in the same sentence for them—they wanted—and expected—a military Messiah who would annihilate the Roman occupation, liberate Israel, and bring about a Messianic Age of justice, prosperity and peace. But Jesus did much more than achieve a mere military victory—he was victorious over death itself in his resurrection! Jesus is no military Messiah—he is THE Messiah, the one true Christ, the Anointed One, who, though crucified to death, destroys death, restores and transform life, and is now transforming all of creation.
