JESUS IS BELIEVED to have died at the age of 33 after a life of approximately 12,000 days. The Gospel writers devoted most of their work to just 1,100 or so of those days, the last 3 years of his life; and their primary interest was in one particular day—the day he was crucified.

This 24-hour period changed the world, and each of the Gospels drives toward it. I do believe this 24-hour period created a legacy of being the greatest turn around or comeback ever.

Let’s look at what many call Holy Week. The trial and Passion begin Thursday evening after sunset and lasting on through Friday, Jesus would eat the Last Supper with his disciples; pray in the garden of Gethsemane; be betrayed and deserted by his friends; be convicted of blasphemy by the religious authorities; be tried and sentenced for insurrection by Pontius Pilate; be tortured by Roman soldiers; and undergo crucifixion, death, and burial.

These 24 Hours of Jesus Life, Changed the world and I also believe these 24 Hours can Change Your Life. I know those 24 Hour Changed Mine!

The aim of this Sermon is to help you better understand the events that occurred during the last twenty-four hours of Jesus’ life, see more clearly the God Spoken Importance of Christ’s suffering and death, and reflect upon the meaning of these events for your life.

A lot can happen in a day I Watch a show on Tv called 24 Legacy it is a 12 Episode show about one Guy stopping terrorist from causing Major destruction in America it’s a good Show. The Show goes minute by minute Hour by hour and leaves you hanging from show to show. The Same can be said about the End of Jesus Earthly life.

The 24 Hours or The Third Day

Let’s focus on the that day, it began at sunset on Saturday night, but it was not until morning that Mary Magdalene discovered the stone had been rolled away and the tomb was empty. The details differ in each Gospel, but all agree that this woman who had been set free by Jesus from demon possession or mental illness was first on the scene. Matthew, Mark, and Luke tell us she was accompanied by one or more other women; and they had come with scented oils to anoint Jesus’ body.

The women were shocked by what they saw: The stone had been rolled away from the mouth of the tomb. They ran to the tomb, afraid someone had taken Jesus’ body to desecrate it and humiliate him further.

The Gospels vary somewhat in their accounts of what happened next. According to Mark (16:5), “they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe.” Matthew (28:2) identifies him as “an angel [a Greek word meaning “messenger”] of the Lord.” Luke (24:4) says that “suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them.”

John (20:12) also tells us there were “two angels in white.” “They said . . . ‘Why are you weeping?’ ” (John 20:15). “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen” (Luke 24:5). With that, the women ran off to find the disciples.

The Easter chronology varies slightly in the four Gospel accounts; but one thing is clear: The idea that Jesus had been raised from the dead was considered unbelievable.”
