Huh?

Huh?

The Thracian people were slaves and were being oppressed by the Romans. Who are the Thracians, you might ask. Well they are an ancient people that no longer exist. The Thracians came from places like, Thrace, Macedonia, Dacia, Scythia, Minor, Bithynia, Mysia, Pannonia, and other regions of the Balkans and Anatolia. They needed and cried out for a savior

There was a Thracian named Spartacus, who was a Roman Soldier. Spartacus fell out of favor with the Roman army. Spartacus was sold as a gladiator because of his incredible strength and fighting skills. After many fierce battles Spartacus led an escape of the gladiators and slaves. He would fight fierce battles with the Roman army and won many. Well this was the man for the job. He was a hero and a savior to the Thracian slaves and Gladiators. He brought them freedom and hope. The battles Spartacus fought were legendary, he was fierce a true warrior leader. If you saw the movie Spartacus, you remember when he was called out to be put to death; he stood right up and said I am Spartacus. But then so did many of the other warriors in his army to show their loyalty and allegiance. He was truly beloved among his people.

The Jewish people had been subjected to years of captivity, slavery and abuse, and they cried out for a savior. Moses and Joshua both were sent to free them from human captivity. Although they were not the savior God ultimately had in mind. The Gentiles, non Jewish, had no savior promised but one was delivered. With all that was going on in the world, they too waited for a Spartacus, Joshua, King David type Savior and Messiah. They awaited a man who would lead them from bondage created in the earthly world. They and we at times see no further then our noses. We think in worldly terms. What other way would you take on an oppressor but by a great warrior.

Well God did send a Messiah and Savior. God sent a baby who was called Jesus. Huh? As Jesus grew he wore no amour, He carried no sword, he rode no great steed, and His battle cry was not to physically destroy anyone. Huh? What in the world is this? Well that’s it exactly, he came in to this world from another world, a spiritual world. He didn’t come just to free us from worldly bondage but from the spiritual bondage of ourselves and from sin. Jesus fought spiritual battles, battles we could never fight, even with Spartacus, David or Joshua. Jesus saved us all on a spiritual and eternal basis. Jesus died so we could be saved.

To Be Continued…

God Bless
