This is the second part of a three-part video series that covers the topic of Tisha B'Av, the national day of mourning in Judaism, and its importance for us now in the Church. In the previous video, Aaron Eime spoke about the importance of the Temple in the development of Jesus' theology, and the concepts of repentance.
Part two of our series goes deeper into the concept and theology of repentance. Tisha B’Av reminds us that God disciplines us as individuals, as a church, and as a nation. History can and should be instructive. On this day of tragedy, we remember that it was our sin that drove the presence of God away from His Temple and His people.
As it says in Deut 4:29 "if you seek the Lord your God with all your heart, you will find Him". Sin could drive away God’s presence but repentance would draw Him close. And national repentance would bring the Redeemer. As the prophet Isaiah says "The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent."
