Shot from the heart of heaven, like a cannonball, Jesus enters human history
This animated rap video dramatically communicates the hope the gospel brings humanity. The Christian message confronts us with the murky depths of a problem we usually try to ignore: Life is a terminal condition; everyone alive is perishing.
We desperately search for a rope to haul us to safety, but God sends a cannonball. Jesus comes down into the pit, to the very heart of our ruin, but his life is plotted on a completely different trajectory to ours. He's heading for the cross.
Like a cannonball, he blasts a hole through our mortality and sin, and emerges into eternal life. He doesn't just dangle us a bit of rope, he completely obliterates the danger. The path to Easter Sunday is through Good Friday.
Here's a helpful explanation from Glen Scrivener about his thinking behind this video. Possible Discussion Questions
