Week 40 Day 5
Jesus' physical death was
a spiritual victory and
a spiritual mystery
His death is our life.
Death to Jesus meant
going home to his Father
it also meant
leaving the world
and those he loved here
Jesus spoke of death as glory
and of himself being
glorified in death
of bringing glory
to his Father
through his death
Still he suffered
as any human would
on the cross.
DEATH MEANS RETURNING TO THE FATHER
Crucified; glorified: differing perspectives on Jesus' death.
1Pilate took Jesus and scourged Him, 15and said to them,
"Shall I crucify your King?" The chief priests answered,
"We have no king but Caesar!" 16Then Pilate delivered Him
to them to be crucified. They took Jesus and led Him away.
23The soldiers took His garments and made four parts, to
each soldier a part. Now the tunic was without seam, woven
from the top in one piece. 24They said among themselves,
"Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be."
25Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and
His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary
Magdalene. 26When Jesus saw His mother, and the disciple
whom He loved standing by, He said, "Woman, behold your
son!" 27Then He said to the disciple, "Behold your mother!"
From that hour that disciple took her to his own home.
28After this, Jesus said, "I thirst!" 29Now a vessel full of
sour wine was there; they filled a sponge, put it on hyssop,
and put it to His mouth. 30When Jesus had received the sour
wine, He said, "It is finished!" And bowing His head, He
gave up His spirit.
31Because it was the Preparation Day, and bodies should
not remain on the cross on the Sabbath, the Jews asked Pilate
that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken
away. 32The soldiers came and broke the legs of the others who were crucified with Him. 33When they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. 34But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. 36These things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, "Not one of His bones shall be broken," 37and another, "They shall look on Him whom they pierced."
38After this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of
Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he
might take away the body of Jesus. 39And Nicodemus,
who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a
mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds.
40They took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of
linen with the spices, as the custom is to bury. 41Now in
the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and
in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been
laid. 42So there they laid Jesus, for the tomb was nearby. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
