WHAT HELD JESUS TO THE CROSS

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfinger@aol.com

I HAVE A CROSS AND THREE NAILS BEFORE THE CROWD...

I HAVE 8 PIECES OF WOOD WITH THE 8 THINGS PAINTED ON THEM...

THE CRUCIFIXION...

Type of punishment in ancient times.

Deut. 21:23 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise

bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that thy land be not defiled,

which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

BEFORE THE CROSS OR CRUCIFIXION CAME A CONDEMNATION, THEN A SCOURGING...

The tradition was to mix vinegar (acid) and gall (bitterness) ... TO NUMB...

Matthew 27:34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would

not drink.

BLOOD

SUFFERING

PERSECUTION

PEACE

OFFENCE

the enemies of the cross of Christ:

I have heard several debate the THREE RUSTY NAILS... through the flesh was what

kept Jesus on the cross those hours until HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD ...

HEBREW FOR NAIL: YATHED...

Col. 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened

together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

[14] Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took

it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

Ephes. 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the

enmity thereby:

THERE WERE 3 CRUCIFIED THAT DAY:

1. ONE DIED IN SIN

2. ONE DIED TO SIN

3. ONE DIED FOR SIN...

THERE WAS MUCH MORE THAN NAILS HOLDING HIM...

it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

families of the earth be blessed.

2. THERE WAS A ROPE OF GOD THE FATHER'S WILL...
