Even though the Israelites wanted a conqueror, an insurrectionist to topple Rome, they got the opposite. They got a Prince of Peace, a Lamb who would not open his mouth when accused at the slaughter. Jesus did conquer, but not Rome. He toppled a greater evil: sin. And he did so through his perfect, unblemished life and then sacrifice on the cross. Behold, the lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
