It Was Not Glory First, But Suffering then Glory

It was not glory first, but suffering and then glory, that the prophets foretold.  Jesus is the suffering servant of Isaiah 53, who bears the sins of many and justifies the wicked.  First the cross, then the resurrection; first suffering in this age and then sharing in Christ’s victory as we enter the Sabbath rest in his train.
