Today marks the day that Jesus spent among the dead, having defeated death through death. Yesterday I stumbled across this lyric video during sermon prep while searching for the lyrics of the Reformer Martin Luther’s hymn “Christ Jesus Lay in Death’s Strong Bands.” The song, the video, and the performance all powerfully present the dramatic story of Jesus’s victory over death and how it sets us free. The artist is called Koine (as in Koine Greek). I had never heard of them. But they appear to be a band of Lutheran Christians who specialize in modern renditions of old hymns. Check them out on Spotify.
