The Sound Of Silence

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 11

Luke 23:8  (ID: 2355)

Herod’s long-awaited encounter with Jesus before His crucifixion is one of the most striking interactions in the Gospels. Alistair Begg notes that Jesus’ silence at Herod’s barrage of questions drew out Herod’s true nature, revealing a now-hardened heart. When we are presented with Christ and discover we cannot force him to act according to our liking, will we respond with the scorn that Herod embodied? Or will we respond with worship and submission?


8When Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad, for he had long desired to see him, because he had heard about him, and he was hoping to see some sign done by him.
