The judge is now inrepparttar act of turning Jesus over to his enemies to be crucified, notwithstanding his innocence.

But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. (John 19:15 Christ's Trial and They Demand Christ's Condemnation).

Pilate could try men like Barabbas and keeprepparttar 126961 order; butrepparttar 126962 fate which brought this mysterious prisoner to his attention and judgment, offered nor suggested no solution torepparttar 126963 problem which he should solve. Pilate brought under weakness and delivered Jesus Christ over to be crucifixed.

Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they went forth into a place calledrepparttar 126964 place of a skull, which is called inrepparttar 126965 Hebrew Golgotha: (John 19:16 Christ's Trial and Christ Condemned).

When you review Matthew 27:32 and Mark 15:21 it has on record Christ's Crucifixion and Christ Bearing HIS Cross.

When you review Luke 23:36 it has on record Christ's Crucifixion, The Conduct ofrepparttar 126966 People and How They Give HIM Vinegar, Wine Mingled with Myrrh.

Jesus friends despaired at this time, lingering, however, in silence aroundrepparttar 126967 cross, not knowing what do or what next to expect, in this group his mother, Mary, and other friends were numbered.

Now there stood byrepparttar 126968 cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Maryrepparttar 126969 wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. (John 19:25 Christ's Reception By Men and The Ministry of Women).

John was Jesus close friend and beloved disciple and a few ofrepparttar 126970 women remained withrepparttar 126971 disciple. Jesus showedrepparttar 126972 deepest concern for his mother and suggest John look after her like she was his own.

When Jesus therefore saw his mother, andrepparttar 126973 disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he torepparttar 126974 disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. (John 19:26,27 Christ's Crucifixion, Christ's Words to Women who wept for HIM).

Prophecy coming to pass. The suffering Messiah has fulfilled this mission. Jesus sense of thirst was a sign that his spirit was at rest. The flesh suffered whilerepparttar 126975 spirit triumphed.

After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, thatrepparttar 126976 scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. 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. (John 19:28,29 Christ's Crucifixion, They Give Him Vinegar and Wine Mingled with Myrrh).

Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished withrepparttar 126977 words, "It is finished." Christ now bows his head and gives uprepparttar 126978 ghost;repparttar 126979 purpose of God inrepparttar 126980 history of man is accomplished. God has revealed himself as love.

When Jesus therefore had receivedrepparttar 126981 vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave uprepparttar 126982 ghost. (John 19:30, Matthew 27:50, Mark 15:37, Luke 23:46 Christ's Death).

The Resurrection of Jesus - The Risen Lord Appears

Written by Angelique Watkins

Continued from page 1

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus,repparttar doors being shut, and stood inrepparttar 126960 midst, and said, Peace be unto you. (John 20:26 Appearances of Christ, After HIS Resurrection, At Other Times, To The Eleven, Sacred Seasons, The Sabbatical Seasons, The Lord's Day, Observed Fromrepparttar 126961 First By The Christian Church).

Thomas loved Jesus and was pleased withrepparttar 126962 fulfillment of prophecy concerningrepparttar 126963 resurrection of Jesus. Jesus warns Thomas against faithlessness, and exhorts him to believe and acceptrepparttar 126964 truth by faith rather than by sight.

Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. (John 20:27 Appearances of Christ After HIS Resurrection, At Other Times, Torepparttar 126965 Eleven).

Are there any doubters today? Are there any that are missing blessings of spiritual revelation, because they are expecting and desiring to see something visible, as a symbol of God's presence, before they accept HIM?

And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God, (John 20:28 Christ's Divinty, HE IS Called God).

Jesus is not impatient with Thomas, nor is HIS wrath kindled against him: he is not pronouncing upon him any form of doom, but simply showing him that there is room for improvement.

Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. (John 20:29 FAITH, Is Of Different Degrees).


And many other signs truly did Jesus inrepparttar 126966 presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: (John 20:30)


The Promise: Everlasting Life and Heaven Promised.

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus isrepparttar 126967 Christ,repparttar 126968 Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. (John 20:31)

Thomas was skeptical and Peter was impulsive. They both had to be tested and tried before permanently. Simon Peter and his brother Andrew were fishermen, like James and John,repparttar 126969 sons of Zebedee, and it was characteristic of Jesus to make approaches, byrepparttar 126970 way of natural endeavors.

When Jesus was being tried Peter tried to keep his promise and follow him, butrepparttar 126971 human part became weak and resulted in his denail, thrice upon accusation byrepparttar 126972 enemies.

So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than thee? He saith unto thim, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. (John 21:15 Apostle Peter And Final Charge to Him).

He saith to him againrepparttar 126973 second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. (John 21:16 Apostle Peter And Final Charge to HIM).

When Peter declared, with an attitude of grief, that he did loverepparttar 126974 Master and that his denial did not mean permanent separation, Jesus again told him to feed HIS sheep. The work of sharing, praying, praising, teaching, missions, preaching, witnessingrepparttar 126975 good news is important, and no man putting his hand torepparttar 126976 plow should turn back (Luke 9:62).

He saith unto himrepparttar 126977 third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto himrepparttar 126978 third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee, Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. (John 21:17 Christ Possessrepparttar 126979 Attributes of God, IS Omniscient).
