Today you’re in for a stylistic change. The kids and I have been listening to Shai Linne’s album The Atonement for over a year. It’s a rap album. Before today’s song selection, a sermon snippet appears on the album, which I have included below:
It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun’s light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last. Now when the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent!” And all the crowds that had assembled for this spectacle, when they saw what had taken place, returned home beating their breasts.
