THE CRUCIFIXION OF CHRIST

John 19:16Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

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

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

The crucifixion of Christ exposes the very heart of a loving Father, a willing Saviour and a lost sinner Jesus reaches down to the lowest ebb and up to Heaven’s highest to bring a Father to a ruined sinner together in a right relationship.

(1) The Masters willingness

John 10:17Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

18No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

Motivating love through his message

Loyalty maneuvered his methods

Lost mankind his mission

(2) IT,S a mighty weight

2nd Cor.5:21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

All sins of the lost world

The sorrow of separation from the father

Suffering the shameful punishment

(3) The mysterious witness

Matt. 27:54Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

Truly this was the Son of God

Testimony of divine relationship

Triumph at death

(4) The mixed watch

Matt. 27:35And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

36And sitting down they watched him there;

There were all types of sinners

Some real believers present

Reality of man’s sinful nature

(5) This was a mad world

Matt. 27:39And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,

40And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.

41Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,

42He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

43He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

44The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.

Worst crimes ever committed

All man kind had crumbled

All wrong placed on and innocent Christ

(6) The marvelous wreath

Matt. 27:37And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Jesus human life ends

Now King future rule for ever

The Jews will soon see him as the Messiah

(7) The miracle wrought

Gal.6:14But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

15For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

The ransom paid by the Saviour

Redemption is now received freely

The saved can now rejoice for ever
