“The next day John the Baptist saw Jesus coming to him and said, ‘Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!'” (John 1:29).
For the uninitiated, Passion Week, the events and suffering leading up to the crucifixion of our Lord, culminates in what they see as a horrific accident; as something that never should have occurred. What should be noted, however, is that in every unfolding event during this last week of Jesus’ life, from His betrayal, to His arrest, to His trial, and even to the cross He is in control and reigns supreme. What is true in the last week of His life was anticipated and understood in the very first week of His public ministry, and even heralded by John the Baptist.
