Easter Deepening

(Message given at Newberg Friends Church on April 20, 2014)

There are lots of metaphors and pictures and images that describe Jesus and the victory of Easter.

Lion. Lamb. Warrior on a white horse.

But there’s one I don’t think of often, but that surprisingly appears quite a bit in the New Testament. Jesus used it himself. Peter used it in a sermon in the early church, and Peter and Paul both used it in letters. It’s an image picked up from several places in the Old Testament, including Psalm 118 which we are looking at today. What is it?

“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.”

The one rejected becomes the one on whom everything is built.
