SIGNIFICANT ITEMS OF HOLY WEEK: CRUCIFYING JESUS, AND FAMOUS LAST WORDS

15 April

Luke 23:21 “…Crucify him, crucify him!”

 Looking over our list of ‘significant items of holy week’ has been an eye opening, if not gut-wrenching experience, has it not?

We saw figs and thieves, palm branches and donkeys. Then we saw oils and boxes, coins and bread. Most of the items are just everyday things, in the everyday life of any person – both then, and now. Completing our list are two last items, which I believe, are the most important of all. The Cross of Christ, and famous last words.

Our submission for today is simple. It’s about Jesus, and I’m borrowing the title of my pastor’s sermon this past week; ‘Famous Last Words’.

In the history of significant world-changing events, nothing compares to what took place with the birth, life, and death of a man from Galilee. No other person in history has affected every person on earth; period. You don’t have to believe He’s God when you look at your calendar each day. However, you should know the history of how we keep track of time changed with His birth.

As we’ve said many times throughout our series, Jesus came to earth for one purpose. To save mankind. His Father loved us so much that He gave His Son to redeem us from the debt we incurred with our sinful lives.

I’m listing a few facts that happened on the day Jesus died, and 59 fulfilled prophecies with the advent of His crucifixion, and a link for the original article, ‘The Crucifixion of Jesus.
