Pro nobis mortuus est – He died for us
How could the Messiah possibly have been humiliated, crucified, and killed? The two disciples on their way to Emmaus were certainly thinking this. For they shared with their nameless travel companion that “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…” These two disciples had hoped that Jesus would be the long awaited “superhero” Messiah. But Jesus turned out to be just another failed (and now dead) prophet. When he comes, the Messiah will smash the yoke of Roman oppression, liberate Israel, and begin a new Messianic age for the Jewish people! In response, the Risen Jesus revealed to the two disciples in the breaking of the bread that he is, in fact, the “crucified Messiah” now vindicated by rising from the dead – certainly no mere military “messiah”! Jesus has destroyed death forever. He has restored life, eternal life, and is now the Lord of life who makes all things new. Jesus died for us – pro nobis mortuus est – that we might no longer fear death, but enter into eternal life with Jesus, the Crucified and Risen Messiah.
