Condemnation and Crucifixion


Some of the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into their headquarters and called out the entire regiment. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him. They wove thorn branches into a crown and put it on his head, and they placed a reed stick in his right hand as a scepter. Then they knelt before him in mockery and taunted, “Hail! King of the Jews!” And they spit on him and grabbed the stick and struck him on the head with it. When they were finally tired of mocking him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him again. Then they led him away to be crucified. Matthew 27-31


Here we on a day known to many today as Good Friday.  Jesus was taken from the garden of Gethsemane….down the mountain to Annas  house, where they began looking  for an accusation to make their case.  It was somewhat a stall tactic until the Sanhedrin gathered at the high priestly villa (mark 14:53-15:47) This is the 1st Trial.  On the 2nd trial Jesus is condemned and misused –Jesus tells them he will be seated at God’s right hand, and is accused of blasphemy all the while they spit on him, they , blind fold and beat Him. Outside in the courtyard his most trusted ally, Peter is denying he knows his Master, (Luke 22:54–23:56) –the 3rd Trial is more of the same, and at this time…Peter as denied Jesus for a 3rd time….the rooster crows….Peter run away weeping bitterly….Jesus is now taken to the Romans (john 18:13)….





  • Fourth trial before Pilate [till "beginning at Galilee"] Fifth trial before Herod [looks for miracle] 6th trial  back again before Pilate 

    • Jesus finally turned over to be crucified 
    • Jesus mocked (Roman soldiers); crown of thorns
    • Judas hangs himself
    • Jesus bears His cross to gate on north of city and is crucified around 9 am

           On the Cross now for sometime...the blood has drained....but not the pain... He still needs to breath....gravity is winning the battle for breathable air.  Jesus would have to find some strength to stretch upward to gain a breath or he would not be able to speak...then once he caught a breath would have  no strength and  sink again... He would have to do this over and over in order to keep speaking--no doubt this move us unspeakably painful, and it;s no doubt He kept doing it until all He needed to say was done....like :

    • "Father, forgive them..."
    • "Today...with me in paradise"
    • "Woman, behold thy son..." [darkness: noon – 3 pm]
    • "My God, My God..."
    • "I thirst"
    • "It is finished"
    • "Into Thy hands..."


    About 3 pm; veil torn, rocks rent; some graves opened and people rise [to mortality] and go into the city
    • Jesus' side pierced
    • Passover lambs slain in temple
    • Jesus buried by sundown
    *** JESUS CARRIED YOUR BRICKS OF SIN ***
    SEE THIS PICTURE ON THE LEFT-- THIS IS WHY JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS---THESE ON THE LEFT ARE WHY JESUS CAME---TOO MAKE IT RIGHT.

    He wore them….He bore them….and they tore Him….they are adam & eve’s sin….king David’s sins….and your sins.  He wore the Crown….He bore the Cross…..was tore by the nails.

    show me anywhere....of anyone in history--- where more love was shown to more people spread over a time we can't even measure.  Jesus loves you this much, that you got to commit the crime, and He took the punishment.  You can't make up for it...you can't earn it....all you can do is accept the free gift of salvation that killed him, and take the greatfulness and grattitude you feel and serve Him always...
