Response of Faith: Heidelberg Catechism 38-39
Q. Why did [Christ] suffer “under Pontius Pilate” as judge?
A. So that he, though innocent, might be condemned by an earthly judge, and so free us from the severe judgment of God that was to fall on us.
Q. Is it significant that he was “crucified” instead of dying some other way?
A. Yes. By this I am convinced that he shouldered the curse which lay on me, since death by crucifixion was cursed by God.
* Song of Response
“God Moves in a Mysterious Way”
* Benediction
* Closing Song
