The following sermon was preached by Rev. David Fraser, Minister of Shettleston, at the Saturday Evening Communion, preparatory service, 27th of June, 2009. The old Apostolic Creed says that “He descended into hell”. What is meant by this phrase? This awesome message looks at the events that preceded the sufferings of Our Lord on the cross. Christ was alone as He faced the evil powers of wickedness but a woman (who will be remembered forever) anointed The Saviour with very precious ointment and only with hindsight would the disciples look back and see the beautiful meaning of her costly sacrifice.
The text is Matt26:…Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified
