Mt 27:22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers. {common hall: or, governor's house}
28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
36 And sitting down they watched him there;
37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
(KJV)









CONTRASTS OF THE CROSS ARE OXYMORONS THAT LOOKING BACK ON THE EVENT WE CAN SEE THE CONTRASTS THAT WERE NOT SO VISIBLE WHEN THEY OCCURED.







A CONVICTION BEFORE THE TRIAL

Mt 26:3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
4 And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.
5 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.
(KJV)







FALSE WITNESSES. SOMEONE TO LIE ABOUT JESUS

Mt 26:59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;
(KJV)



THEY ACCUSE JESUS OF BLASPHEMY WHICH IS BLASPHEMY BY SAYING HE IS NOT THE SON OF GOD

Mt 26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
(KJV)



BLOOD MONEY. CHIEF PRIESTS CANT' PUT JUDAS'S MONEY IN OFFERING BECAUSE IT WAS BLOOD MONEY. BUT IT WAS THEIR MONEY FOR JESUS BLOOD.

Mt 27:3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
(KJV)



HE MADE HIMSELF SON OF GOD. HE IS SON OF GOD

Joh 19:7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.





JESUS WAS IN SUBMISSION TO THE WILL OF GOD HE WAS NOT UNDER THE POWER OF PILATE
10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.






JESUS ASKED THE FATHER TO FORGIVE THEM THAT WERE RESPONSIBLE. HE DIDN'T SAY GET THEM DADDY.

Lu 23:33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. {Calvary: or, The place of a skull}
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Mt 26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
(KJV)

A LEGION IS 1000 TO 7100 COULD HAVE BEEN 80,000 ANGELS JUST WAITING FOR THE WORD





Mt 27:39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.

CREATURES MOCKING THEIR CREATOR


41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
42 He saved others; himself he cannot save.

HE SAVED OTHER BUT CAN'T SAVE HIMSELF. HE GAVE HIMSELF A SACRIFICE TO SAVE EVEN THE ONES WHO PUT HIM ON THE CROSS.





If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

THEY SAID HE CLAIMS TO BE SON OF GOD AND HE IS SON OF GOD




44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.

THE JEWISH RECONNING OF TIME STARTED AT 6 AM THAT BEING THE FIRST HOUR.

THERE WAS DARKNESS FROM NOON TO 3 PM. THE TIME OF THE EVENING SACRIFICE.

THERE WERE SOME EARLY WRITTINGS THAT SAID IT WAS DARK ALL OVER THE ROMAN EMPIRE. GREEK TEXT SAYS OVER ALL THE LAND. THIS WAS NOT AN ECLIPSE BECAUSE THEY HAPPEN WITH A NEW MOON. PASSOVER HAPPENED DURING FULL MOON. THIS DARKNESS WAS NOT GENERATED BY SATAN EITHER. THIS DARKNESS A SIGN OF GOD'S WRATH UPON THE SIN BEARER, HIS ONE AND ONLY SON.



46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

THIS IS THE WORST PART OF THE CRUCIFIXION.






47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
THEY DIDN'T KILL HIM. HE WILLED HIMSELF TO LIVE UNTIL ALL WAS FULFILLED THEN HE GAVE UP HIS SPIRIT. HE WILLED HIMSELF TO DIE PHYSICALLY.



Mark 15:39 (ASV)
39 And when the centurion, who stood by over against him, saw that he so gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

NOT WAS BUT IS THE SON OF GOD





THE CHIEF PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS MADE SURE THEY DIDN'T DEFILE THEMSELVES BY GOING INTO THE HOUSE OF PILATE SO THEY WOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED UNCLEAN AND THUS OBSERVE PASSOVER. THEY ALSO WANTED THE BODIES REMOVED EARLY SO THEY WOULD NOT COME EVEN CLOSE TO DEFILING THEMSELVES AND AGAIN NOT BE ABLE TO EAT THE PASSOVER MEAL CELEBRATING THEIR EXODUS FROM EGYPT.

YET THEY WERE OBLIVIOUS TO THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD MAKING ATONEMENT FOR OUR AND THEIR SINS.




Joh 18:28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.


JOHN19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
(KJV)



THE ONLY ACT GREATER IN WORLD HISTORY THAN THE CRUCIFIXATION OF CHRIST IS HIS RESURRECTION.



THERE IS NOTHING IN ALL OF WORLD HISTORY OR EVER WILL BE COMPARED TO THE ATONEMENT MADE ON THE CROSS AND THE VICTORY OVER DEATH BY HIS RESURRECTION GUARANTEEING OUR RESURRECTION WHO HAVE TRUSTED IN THE SAVING WORK OF JESUS CHRIST.





HOW ABOUT US AS HIS FOLLOWERS. WE PRAY FOR RELIEF FOR ALL OUR PHYSICAL ILLNESSES. WE WANT ALL TO BE FINE. WE WANT TO LIVE LONG HAPPY FULFILLED LIVES WITH EVERYTHING WE DESIRE IN THIS LIFE. JESUS KNOWING HIS PLACE IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN FULFILLED HIS PART IN ATONING SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS

Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God
