The Lion and the Lamb

Rocking the temple

by Joanne Troppello


He rocked the temple with His mighty roar,

a deafening stillness covering overturned

tables and scattered coins.


Approaching the town gate of Nain,

a funeral, His heart did not hide His

compassion but He healed the widow’s son.


He shook the status quo with His righteous cry,

“You hypocrites.” Behold the teachers of the

law in their self-righteous glory.


Hanging on a dogwood cross He bled for

all mankind, the unblemished sacrifice,

atonement for sin.


The Lion of Judah sits upon His heavenly throne,

a lamb in resplendent glory.
