They stripped him and put on him a purple robe and they were saying HAIL – KING OF THE JEWS and They continued to strike him over and over again….
Jesus probably didn’t weigh 130 or 140 pounds or so---He fasted and prayed sometimes as long as 40 days
Very small Compared to
These Large soldier Men beating on him and slapping him
He was so small and so fragile compared to these big Roman soldiers But he took it all without a word.
He took it all for all of us!!!!!
Pilate said you take him and crucify him because I don’t find any fault in him.
Just then He washed his hands of it
The Jews said he made himself the SON OF GOD!!
HE SHOULD DIE!!!
Now Pilate tried to speak to Jesus but got no answer
He said don’t you know that I have the Power to Crucify you or release you??
Jesus said…you have no power over me at all except it were given thee from above.
He that brought me to you has committed the greater sin!!
So finally Jesus was brought to be crucified. And they all cried away with him
They started their journey to the place of a skull known in Hebrew as GOLGOTHA And Jesus Beared His Cross.
There Pilate put a Title above his head
JESUS OF NAZARETH KING OF THE JEWS.
Written in Hebrew – Greek – and Latin
After he was hung on the cross the Roman Soldiers parted his clothing into four parts one for each soldier
THE SCRIPTURE BEING FULFILLED SAID
THEY PARTED MY RAMENT AMOUNG THEM, AND FOR MY VESTURE THEY DID CAST LOTS
Standing by his cross was his Mother, His Mothers Sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas and Mary Magdalene
Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved – John – then Jesus said to his Mother Woman behold thy SON. And He said to John BEHOLD THY MOTHER – And John took her to his Home. Now Jesus knowing that all things were done said I THIRST
THEY GAVE HIM THE Vinegar in a sponge then he said
IT is finished----AND HE DIED.
Now the Jews then was in a hurry because they didn’t want the bodies to remain on their cross because it was coming up on the SABBATH - they respected the sabbath but crucified an innocent Jesus….
and they asked Pilate that their legs be broken
Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and the other which were crucified with Jesus
But when they came to Jesus they saw he was dead already and they didn’t break his legs – but pierced his side with a sword - and blood and water came out
once again scriptures being fulfilled says;
A BONE OF HIM SHALL NOT BE BROKEN
THEY SHALL LOOK ON HIM WHOM THEY PIERCED
Then a disciple of Jesus named Joseph came and asked Pilate for his body
Also came Nicodemus with myrrh and aloes and they took Jesus’ body and wound it with the strips in the manner of the Jews
Which was they wound Him from head to foot!
And then they laid his body in the tomb.
On the 1st day of the week – 3 days later Mary Magdalene came early before daylight and the stone was rolled away – She ran to Simon Peter and John and said they have taken the Lord away and we know not where
So they ran to the tomb and looked in seeing the linen clothes lying. At this point they didn’t know the scripture
