Even Kings Had Never Heard of IT!

“…and kings will shut their mouths because of him. For what they were not told, they will see, and what they have not heard, they will understand.” Isaiah 52:15 NIV

What was it that had not been told? What was it that they had never seen? What was it they had not heard? What was it that they were to understand? For that matter do we understand it yet?

Before Jesus died – before He had the skin torn off His back – before he had His beard ripped out, and a crown of thorns planted into His skull, He had said:

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13 NIV

Until the day that Jesus died, no one had ever seen a love greater than that! What kings got to see on the day He died was a love that was good for enemies:

“For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!” Romans 5:10 NIV

The King of all kings was about to found a kingdom on a love that was good for enemies. No one had ever seen, heard or understood anything like that before, and that is what we need to understand!
