Divine Remedy for Human Tragedy (Numbers 21:4-9)

In John 3, Jesus tells Nicodemus that, “as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life” (John 3:14-15).  Right before the famous and beloved text of John 3:16 we find Jesus connecting his impending death on the cross to a story from the book of Numbers of the bronze serpent. In this Good Friday sermon, pastor Keith unpacks the story of the bronze serpent and shows how there was and is still is a divine remedy for human tragedy. And as we turn our eyes to Jesus Christ and him crucified we too can look and live.
