The Death of Jesus

JESUS’ DEATH ON THE CROSS

Matthew 27:45-50 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. [46] And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [47] Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. [48] And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. [49] The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him. [50] Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. (KJV)

They put our precious Lord on that horrendous cross at the 3rd hour (9:00 AM). By the 6th hour (noon), an untimely and unexpected darkness came over the land. I believe it was at this time, from the 6th to the 9th hour (noon until 3:00 PM), that the cross became an altar on which the unblemished Lamb of God took away the sins of the world. It was during the three hours in which this darkness continued, that Jesus was in excruciating agony, for He wrestled with the powers of darkness, and felt His Father’s displeasure against the sins of mankind, for which He was making His own Self as an offering . . . for us! There has never been three such horrific hours since the day God created man upon the earth, never been such a dark and dreadful scene, as was that day Christ went to the cross. It was the turning point of mankind’s redemption and salvation.

Jesus moaned words from Psalm 22:1My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” We cannot possibly understand just what happened that day in those three black hours. How could Jesus take on the sins of the whole world? (John 1:29). The sins of ALL peoples, red, yellow, black and white? The sins of those not yet even born? My friend, I cannot answer this. It is the mystery that happened all those years ago on that black, supernatural day! All we can do is to praise our Lord and thank Him for His unconditional love that He feels for people (John 3:16).What a Saviour we have! What a Friend we have in Jesus!

Christ, just before He died, spake in His full strength “loud voice” to show that His life was not taken from Him, but was freely and willingly given! He had strength to defy the powers of death, and to show that by the eternal Spirit He had offered Himself. He was the Priest as well as the Sacrifice.

He cried with a “loud voice” then He yielded up the ghost. Jesus, the Son of God died upon the cross; a violent death of the pain He was put to, before and on the cross. His soul was separated from His body, and His body was truly dead. It is certain that Christ died, for it was needful that we should live. He made Himself an offering for sin (our sin). He willingly gave up His life, for us.

Mark 15:33-41 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. [34] And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [35] And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias. [36] And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down. [37] And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. [38] And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. [39] And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God. [40] There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; [41] (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem. (KJV)

There was a thick darkness over the land, from noon until three in the afternoon. The Jews did their utmost to extinguish the Sun of Righteousness. At the same instant that Jesus died, the veil of the temple was torn from the top to the bottom. This brought terror to the unbelieving Jews, and was a sign of the destruction of their church and nation. But that torn curtain brings comfort to all believing Christians, for it opened the way to God the Father, a way into the holiest Throne of God, by the Blood of Jesus. Now, we can with boldness and confidence go openly to God the Father. We need no mortal man to serve as a priest for us. Christ crucified can reconcile the believer to God the Father. Only our Saviour who was wounded and pierced and slain can save us from the wrath to come (John 3:18; 36; 8:24; Heb.7:25; Rev.3:10; 1 Thes.1:10).

Luke 23:44-49 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. [45] And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. [46] And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. [47] Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man. [48] And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned. [49] And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things. (KJV) The death of Christ is magnified by the wonders that attended it, and His death explained by the words with which He breathed out His soul. He was willing to offer Himself. Let us glorify God by true repentance and a walk with Christ; by protesting against those who blaspheme and crucify the Saviour; by living a pure, righteous, and godly life; and by using our talents in the service of Him who died for us and rose again.

John 19:19-30 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. [20] This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. [21] Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews. [22] Pilate answered, What I have written I have written. [23] Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. [24] They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did. [25] Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. [26] When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! [27] Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. [28] After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. [29] Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. [30] When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. (KJV)

Pilate wrote on a sign, and placed it on the cross . . . “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews” . . . and it was written three languages. The Jews revolted, saying that was not His real dignity, only His false claim to it. But Pilate stood fast on what he had written. Many things done by the Roman soldiers were fulfilments of the prophecies of the Old Testament. (Psalms 34:20; 16:10; chapters 22 & 69; Isaiah chapter 53). See Messianic Prophecies.

Christ tenderly provided for His mother at His death. Many wonder why Jesus chose the apostle John to see after His mother, while Mary and Joseph had other children (Mat. 1:25; 12:48; 13:55-57; Mark 3:31-35; 6:3; John 2:12; 7:5; Luke 2:7; 8:19; Acts 1:14; Psalm 69:8). It might be that at the time of His death, His brothers did not believe in Him (John 7:3-5), although later on they did (Acts 1:14).

It is finished”. His sufferings were now fulfilled. All the prophecies of the Old Testament, which pointed to the sufferings of the Messiah, were accomplished. The ceremonial law was abolished; Jesus had come, all the shadows are done away with. An end is made of transgression by bringing in an everlasting righteousness. His sufferings were now finished, both those of His soul, and those of His body. “It is finished” the work of mankind’s redemption and salvation is now completed. Jesus’ life was not taken from Him by force, but freely given up.

Thank You, Jesus!
