Joseph of Arimathea
RELEASED FEB 2020
Joseph of Arimathea is only mentioned briefly in Scripture as the man who buried Jesus, but his actions give the working Christian an example of how to live for Christ in a world that opposes him.
Joseph of Arimathea reaches through the verses of Scripture to our own generation in a powerful, relevant, and compelling way. He teaches us that the ordinary matters. An ordinary person, living an ordinary life, can be an instrument in the hands of God to be used for his purposes. Looking closely at the life of this disciple, Joseph of Arimathea defines what it means to be a person of the small print and offers a paradigm-shifting perspective on how to be a disciple of Christ in a secular world.
“Character is built over time, in the everyday,
and world-changers are people of character.”

“My friend Ken Costa masterfully captures the meaning of those final moments in his new book Strange Kingdom. It’s a brilliant, fresh perspective that shouldn’t’ be missed.”

This meditative and spiritual reflection considers the cross and the king who died upon it. Christ’s work on the cross established a kingdom that is strange indeed, if a king died on the cross in order to establish it. It is a kingdom where suffering and abandonment are transformed into the power of presence and live, a kingdom where a King exchanges gifts of great value for worthless dross, where a robber becomes righteous, and a criminal becomes the first citizen of heaven.
“Spend some time as Easter draws near considering the strange, upside-down kingdom, where broken things are made whole.”
