Jesus dying on the cross:

Life and death of Jesus

Luke 22:47,48,54,63,65

47 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.

48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

54 Then took they him,

63 And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.

64 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?

65 And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.

Luke 23:14,16-25

I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:

16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him.

17(For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)

18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:

19(Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)

20 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.

21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.

22 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go.

23 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.

24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.

25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.

John 19:1,2,16-18,30

19:1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,

16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:

18 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

30 It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

The reason:

John 3:16-17

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Rom 5:8

8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Picture this;

A life saved:

My brother’s returning to the Lord after backsliding.

Now picture a person praying and studying God’s Word, living a holy life so that he can please God and go to heaven.

A blessed life:

Blind Bart etc. And people in this church being healed and other needs being met.

Eternity without you:

Great White Throne Judgment

Rich man and Lazeras

Picture in magazine of family with father’s face blanked out.

Jesus giving you another opportunity today:

Just picture all this today.
