The Reason Christ Was Born a Man

John Stange

Matthew 20:17-19

I. Jesus was condemned (v. 18)

Romans 14:10-12 – 10 Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you
despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; 11 for it is written,
“As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me,
and every tongue shall confess to God.”
12 So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.

Romans 8:1 – There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

II. Jesus was mocked, flogged and crucified (v. 19)

Genesis 6:5 – The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every
intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

III. Jesus rose on the third day (v. 19)

Romans 8:11 – If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who
raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit
who dwells in you.
