CRUCIFIXION BIBLE STUDY
WHY JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED
You may have heard before that Jesus was the Lamb of
God. What exactly does this mean? Well, since way back in Abelís day,
a lamb without blemish was a pleasing gift (sacrifice) to God.
Since there werenít enough sheep in the all the world to atone for the
sins of man, God provided the Lamb for us, which is Jesus, as the
sacrifice to atone for sins once and for all.
Have you ever heard of such a generous gift? Also, did you know that Jesus was really
crucified on Thursday and not on Good Friday?
Let's look a little
deeper into these two things and do a little bit of review.
The feasts and celebrations that the Israelites were
told by God to honor each year were in fact ... SHADOWS of things to
2:16-17). In other
words, God created these days of celebration as a sign of future
events that would occur at that specific time of year. Many awesome
events have occurred on these days just as predicted and there are
more to come. There is one in particular that I want to share with you
It is the "Passover" (Leviticus
23:5). You've probably
heard of the story of the great Exodus from Egypt with Moses (Book of Exodus). After God
plagued the Egyptians for not allowing His people to be set
free, He had one more plague that would prove to do the trick. Moses
told the people that an Angel of Death would come and kill all
the firstborn of Egypt.
In order to protect their children, they were to
place lamb's blood on their homes and the Angel of Death would PASS
OVER them. They were to bring an unblemished lamb on the 10th day of
the 1st month of the Jewish calendar and keep this lamb for four days.
Keep it for 4 days. Then on the 14th day of the month.
Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day
of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to
the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: And if the household
be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his
house take it according to the number of the souls; every man
according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb
shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it
out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until
the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the
congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
The Israelites would KILL THE LAMB and place the
blood on their homes to save themselves. They were to do this every
year. This Celebration was a shadow of an event to come ... JESUS'
DEATH. Jesus was the Lamb without sin. He came into Jerusalem on the
10th day of the 1st month (Palm Sunday) and was with the people for
four days. He was killed by the Jewish people's choice on the 14th day
of the month just as the Jewish people were celebrating PASSOVER.
Little did they know that HIS BLOOD, like the lamb's was for them many
years ago, is now the saving Grace.
There is another Jewish celebration called "First Fruits" which is
3 days after Passover. The people would offer a HE lamb without
blemish as a sacrifice to God (Leviticus
23:10-14). This Celebration was a shadow of an event to come ... Jesus' resurrection.
Three days after Jesus, the Lamb without blemish was killed, He was
resurrected on sSunday morning as our sacrifice.
God used Jesus as that
He Lamb because there were not enough sheep in all the world to atone
for the sins. This is another important note: It is written that
Jesus would be resurrected 3 days and 3 nights after He was crucified.
Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and was "kept" for 4 days. Now
let's do a little math ... If Jesus was dead for 3 days and 3 nights
and resurrected on Sunday morning, this reveals that His death
occurred on Thursday, not Friday ...
Then why do we call it Good Friday? Research proves that a change
was made to accommodate the schedules of those men who made the
changes. Tsk tsk. You can find out more about the Feast Celebration
shadow of things to come in our End Times section in the Feast Shadows
Study. You will find the Holy Spirit came to the Christians in the Upper Room on a Feast Celebration day as
We have created a little calendar for you to do the math on the Good Thursday TRUTH.

CRUCIFIXION BIBLE RESEARCH
JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED AS PROPHECY
Now, on with the study. Weíre continuing now, as
they led Jesus away from Pontius Pilate to crucify Him. Two others
were led with Jesus also to be put to death, who were convicted as
criminals. As they led Him away, they compelled a man named Simon of
Cyrene to carry the cross behind Jesus. Many people followed Him and
the women grieved and cried.
Jesus turned to them and said, Daughters of
Jerusalem donít cry for me, but cry for yourselves and for your
children because the days are coming when theyíll say, Blessed are
those who never bare children. Then theyíll start to say to the
mountains, Fall on us, and to the hills, Cover us. Because if they do
these things in a green tree, what will be done in the dry? Jesus was
talking about the end of time, as you can read also in the book of
Ezekiel 20:47, and
1 Peter 4:17.
When they came to a place on the hill of Calvary
called in Hebrew, Golgotha, which means, the place of a skull, they
gave Jesus vinegar to drink that was mingled with gall (a bitter
substance), and when He tasted it, He wouldnít drink any more (Psalms
And there, at the third hour of the day (9:00 a.m.),
they crucified Jesus as the scripture foretold (Psalms 22:16). They nailed His
precious wrists and feet to a cross and lifted Him up, and the two
thieves with Him, one on each side, with Jesus in the midst. The
prophecy was fulfilled, written in
Isaiah 53:12, that He would be counted as a transgressor. Pilate had written an
engraving of Jesusí accusation to set up over His head that read:
THE KING OF THE JEWS
The chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, Donít
write, The King of the Jews; but that He said, I am the King of the
Jews. Tsk, tsk, tsk, their jealousy still haunting them. Pilate
answered, What I have written, I have written.
Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
The soldiers that crucified Jesus, took
His garments, and tore them into four parts so each soldier could take
a part. His coat had no seam, woven from the top throughout, so they
said, Letís not tear it, but cast lots for it, fulfilling the
The soldiers watched Him there, and the
people stood watching. Those who passed by reviled Him, wagging
their heads and the chief priests, with the elders and the scribes
mocked along with them, saying, He saved others, let Him save Himself
if Heís Christ, the chosen one of God. You that destroy the temple and
build it in three days, save yourself.
If Heís the Son of God, the
King of Israel, let Him come down from the cross and weíll believe
Him. He trusted in God, let Him deliver Him now, if Heíll have Him,
because He said, I am the Son of God. Little did these fellas know
that when they made those statements ... They too were actually fulfilling prophecy.
All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they
shake the head, saying, He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver
him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
One of the thieves which were crucified with Him
said, If youíre the Christ, save yourself and us. But the other
rebuked him, saying, Donít you fear God, being that youíre in the same
condemnation? We deserve our punishment, but this man has done nothing
wrong. He said to Jesus, Lord, remember me when you come into your
Kingdom. Jesus said to him, Truly I say to you, Today, you will be
with me in Paradise.
Know this TRUTH ... Paradise is NOT Heaven. Jesus
told the man that he would be with Jesus in Paradise THAT DAY. Jesus
was not in Heaven that day and in fact would not be taken to Heaven
for 40 days (Acts
1:3-11). He was in Abraham's Bosom.
The path one takes when they die is that they are taken to Abraham's
16:19-31). Jesus even
preached to those in Hell (1 Peter
They are not lifted to heaven until the End Times and at Judgment day (Revelation
CRUCIFIXION BIBLE STORY
JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED FOR OUR SINS
Let's get back to the study, shall we? ... By the
Cross of Jesus stood His mother, and His motherís sister, Mary the
wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw His mother and
His Apostle, John, standing near, He said to His mother, Woman, behold
thy son! Then He said to John, Behold thy mother! And from that hour,
John took her into His home.
When the sixth hour (noon) had come, there was
darkness over all the land until the ninth hour (3:00 p.m.). Then
Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying,
Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?
Jesus said ...
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
... Some of them who stood there, when they heard it, said, Listen,
Heís calling for Elijah.
Now, do not misunderstand as many have, and think
for one second that Jesus was saying that God had turned away from
Him. Nothing could be further from the TRUTH. Jesus was simply quoting
scripture once again, as He did so many times before, to show that it
was being fulfilled. He was directing those present and us today to
prophecy in Psalm 22 which starts out with ... the words my God my
God, why hast thou forsaken me.
Check out this awesome study: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? If you read
Psalm 22, the Psalm which
Jesus was quoting, youíll find that there are 9 verses of
prophecy in that one Psalm foretelling Jesus death. Jesus was in fact,
saying once and for all, I am He, who all those things were written
After that, Jesus, knowing that all things were now
complete, said, I thirst. Immediately one of them ran, and took a
sponge and filled it with vinegar, put it on a reed and gave Him to
drink. The others said, Let Him be. Letís see whether Elijah will come
to save Him.
When Jesus received the vinegar, He said,
It is finished. Father, into thy
hands I commend my spirit. (Psalms
And when He had
cried again with a loud voice, He bowed His head and died. As He gave
up the ghost (the spirit), the sun was darkened, and the veil of the
Temple was torn in half from the top to the bottom, the earth did
quake, and the rocks split. The graves were opened and many bodies of
the saints which slept arose and came out of the graves after His
resurrection, and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
Now, I donít know about you, but this is an absolutely amazing thing here, and
you donít hear about it much, but just think about this. Can you
imagine, the graves opening and the past Saints wandering around? That
is simply incredible!
Now, when the centurion, and those who were with
him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake and all the things that
happened, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son
of God. All His acquaintances, and the women who ministered to Him and
followed Him from Galilee, stood in the distance watching.
Because it was the preparation (the day before
Sabbath), and the bodies shouldnít remain on the cross on the Sabbath
day, Pilate advised that their legs be broken (because they hadnít
died yet) and for them to be taken away. This confirms again that
Jesus was crucified and died on Thursday, because the Sabbath is from
Friday night to Saturday night, so the day before the Sabbath,
would have to be Thursday.
The soldiers came and broke the legs of the two who
were crucified with Him, but when they came to Jesus, and saw that He
was already dead, they didnít break His legs. But one of the soldiers
pierced Jesusí side with a spear, and out of the wound came blood and
water (1 John 5:8). These
things were done so that yet more scripture would be fulfilled, Psalms 34:20, Zechariah 12:10 and Zechariah 13:6.
Most believe that it was Good Friday when our Lord died for our sins.
But the TRUTH is that it was on Thursday and that Religious leaders
changed the day to accommodate their schedules.
