Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “The Embrace of Death” for Palm Sunday on March 24, 2013. The death of Jesus provides a starting point for us as Christians for understanding and living in a broken world. Jesus entered into the same messiness of life that we live in: failed plans, disappointing relationships, political despair, accidents, sickness, disability, mean people, bullies—Jesus entered into the broken world in which we live—and the remarkable thing is that He embraced it. His embrace of this broken world resulted in enormous suffering and an excruciating death.
