Nice to have you back and traveling along with us in our Tell me the story of Jesus voyage. We will pick up where we stopped last time. Let's begin, shall we? You may have heard before that Jesus was the Lamb of God. What exactly does this mean? Well, since way back in Abel's day, a lamb without blemish was a pleasing gift (sacrifice) to God. Since there weren't 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 as the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ? Also, did you know that Jesus was really crucified on Thursday and not on Good Friday?

Well, let us not get ahead of ourselves as we have much to present as for you to decide upon. Before we continue with the Crucifixion Bible study focusing on the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, 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 ... Spiritual Shadows of things to come (Colossians 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 today.

It is the "Passover" (Leviticus 23:5). You have probably heard of the story of the saving Grace of God during the great Exodus from Egypt with Moses, in the 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.

Exodus 12:3-6

3 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:
4 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.
5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
6 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 Crucifixion Bible truth of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ prophecy is taking shape and we are beginning to see a potential reason why Jesus was crucified. Here is more ... The Israelites would kill the lamb and place the blood of the lamb on their homes to save themselves. They were to do this every year. This Celebration was a shadow of an event to come of another Lamb who was slaughtered to save souls ... 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 an 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 Sunday morning as our sacrifice.

In the Crucifixion Bible story glancing ahead into the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ purpose we see that God used Jesus as that very same "He Lamb" because there were not enough sheep in all the world to atone for the sins of mankind. This is another important why Jesus was crucified 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? Crucifixion research proves that a change was made to accommodate the schedules of those men who made the changes. Tsk tsk. Upon completion of the Crucifixion Bible teaching about the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ and the absolutely unconditional love being the reason why Jesus was crucified ... 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 well.

We have created a little Crucifixion of Jesus Christ calendar for you to do the math on the Good Thursday Truth.

The sacrificial lamb for Passover was killed on the 14 th day ... As was Jesus.

Now, on with the Crucifixion Bible story concerning the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ as to better comprehend why Jesus was crucified. We're 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 don't cry for me, but cry for yourselves and for your children because the days are coming when they'll say, Blessed are those who never bare children. Then they'll 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 Revelation 6:16-17, 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 wouldn't drink any more (Psalms 69:21).

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 Jesus' accusation to set up over His head that read:

The King of the Jews

The chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, Don't 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.

Jesus said:

Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.

Feel His Love? Back to the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ and why Jesus was crucified. 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, Let's not tear it, but cast lots for it, fulfilling the scripture in Psalms 22:18.

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 He's Christ, the chosen one of God. You that destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself.

If He's the Son of God, the King of Israel, let Him come down from the Cross and we'll believe Him. He trusted in God, let Him deliver Him now, if He'll have Him, because He said, I am the Son of God. Ain't they clever !!! Little did these fellas know that when they made those statements ... They too were actually fulfilling prophecy.

Psalms 22:7-8

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.

We have to take the Crucifixion Bible detour to better grasp why Jesus was crucified ... Focus Friend: One of the thieves which were crucified with Him said, If you're the Christ, save yourself and us. But the other rebuked him, saying, Don't you fear God, being that you're 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 Bosom (Luke 16:19-31). Jesus even preached to those in Hell (1 Peter 3:18-22).

They are not lifted to Heaven until the End Times and at Judgment day (Revelation 9:6-11 and Revelation 20:11-15).

Let's get back to the The Crucifixion Bible study, shall we? ... By the Cross of Jesus stood His mother, and His mother's 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?

(In English, that is:)

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

... Some of them who stood there, when they heard it, said, Listen, He's calling for Elijah.

Time for the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ and why Jesus was crucified field trip. Buckle up !!! 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 absolutely awe inspiring study on the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ explaining why Jesus asked why He had been forsaken: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? It was actually Jesus revealing past prophecy of he event which was taking place. If you read Psalm 22, the Psalm which Jesus was quoting, you'll 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 about!

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. Let's 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 31:5)

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 don't know about you, but this is an absolutely amazing thing here, and you don't 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! Back to the Crucifixion Bible story.

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.

Here is more of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ morsels of truth ... Because it was the preparation (the day before Sabbath), and the bodies shouldn't remain on the cross on the Sabbath day, Pilate advised that their legs be broken (because they hadn't 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 didn't break His legs. But one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' 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.

More important than the perfect prophetic timing proving that Jesus is the awaited Messiah ... The Crucifixion Bible story sharing the unimaginable events surrounding the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ shared why Jesus was crucified. He endured that misery because of His Love for us.
