Jesus Christ’s crucifixion

Jesus Christ’s crucifixion is the foundation of the Christian religion. All of Scripture builds up to this pivotal event in human history. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, sacrificed His life to permanently defeat the lethal effects of sin. He established a way for us to stand before the Father, the One True God, and to spend eternity with Him in paradise. The greatest gift came through the Messiah’s most agonising death: our redemption. Good Friday commemorates Jesus’ crucifixion during Holy Week, while Easter Sunday celebrates His resurrection.

Where Was Jesus Put to Death?

Jesus was crucified on Golgotha, which translates to “place of skulls” because of the numerous deaths there. According to the NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible, executions were carried out outside the city walls. Adam is reportedly buried where Christ was crucified and where Abraham was prepared to sacrifice his only son Isaac (naming the place Jehovah-Jireh -The Lord will provide.).

What Occurrences Led to the Crusades?

Judas, one of the twelve apostles who betrayed Jesus, delivered Jesus to the high priest and authorities. Troops arrested Jesus, and the allegations that Jesus was God angered the top priests.

He was interrogated by the High Priest Caiaphas (Matthew 26:63–66), “who had told the Jewish authorities that it would be beneficial if one hand died for the people(John 19:14). He was wrongly placed on trial. Even Pilate, the official man in charge of the decision, desired Jesus’ release. However, the mob chanted for the release of another convict, Barabbas, and the crucifixion of Jesus.

People equated darkness with calamity and judgement. God’s timing is impeccable, as the final hours of Christ’s life were shrouded in darkness as the entire world’s sins were laid upon Him. Our deaths were exchanged for his. It could not have been an eclipse because the moon was always full on Passover’s first day. The just consequence for sin is death, which Jesus accepted on our behalf, His blameless life on earth serving as the adequate sacrifice to usher us back into the presence of our Father.

Resurrection from the Dead

Matthew’s account of the resuscitation of the dead at Jesus’ resurrection is the sole instance of such an event in the Bible. Their tombs were opened by the trembling ground when Jesus died. There are differing opinions of who these individuals were when they rose and where they went after they appeared to the city’s residents. In the Commentary of Matthew, Henry writes, “It is more fitting, both to Christ’s honour and theirs, to assume, though we cannot prove, that they resurrected as Christ did, to die no more, and consequently ascended to heaven with him.”
