Audio: Rev. Terrell Carter shares God’s message ‘An Irony of a Life and Death Experience’

Please, click the arrow below to hear this week’s service. “The Greek verb hypsoun (which is used in this passage) means both“exalted” and (more literally) “lifted up.” The typical image you would get from a verse like John 12:32 of someone being lifted up in exaltation would be like what you often see at a baseball game after a pitcher throws the final pitch in what proves to be a no-hitter game. His teammates swarm the pitcher’s mound, lift the jubilant man to their collective shoulders, and so exalt his achievement as they carry him off the field. Jesus, of course, has a rather different idea as to what kind of “lifting up” will lead to his exaltation.”~ Rev. Scott Hoezee
