The Word of the Cross (4): Epilogue
Making my way through the Minor Prophets as part of my year-end Bible reading schedule, I came across this previously unnoticed but indescribably sweet verse, which is a most fitting coda to my previous posts on the word of the cross:
And someone will say to Him, What are these wounds between Your arms? And He will say, Those with which I was wounded in the house of those who love Me. (Zech. 13:6)
Witness Lee’s commentary poignantly states:
The children of Israel killed Christ, but in this sweet word Christ counts their actions as wounds from those who love Him.
What a touching sentiment to conclude my Bible reading schedule for 2011. Lord Jesus, I still love You.
