Day 6

Passion Week

With the daylight the dark trials continued

3rd Religious Trial

Luke 22:66-71 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Jesus before the Sanhedrin
66 When it was day, the Council of elders of the people assembled, both chief priests and scribes, and they led Him away to their council chamber, saying,
67 “If You are the Christ, tell us.” But He said to them, “If I tell you, you will not believe;
68 and if I ask a question, you will not answer.
69 But from now on THE SON OF MAN WILL BE SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND of the power OF GOD.”
70 And they all said, “Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.”
71 Then they said, “What further need do we have of testimony? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.”
via Matthew 27:1-2;Mark 15:1; Luke 22:66-71 NASB – Judas’s Remorse – Now when morning – Bible Gateway.

Matthew 27:1-2 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
1 Now when morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people conferred together against Jesus to put Him to death;
2 and they bound Him, and led Him away and delivered Him to Pilate the governor.

Mark 15:1 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
1 Early in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes and the whole Council, immediately held a consultation; and binding Jesus, they led Him away and delivered Him to Pilate.
via Matthew 27:1-2;Mark 15:1; Luke 22:66-71 NASB – Judas’s Remorse – Now when morning – Bible Gateway.

Judas’ remorse and Suicide
see Matthew 27:3-10; Acts 1:18-19

1st Civil Trial6:00 AM before Pilate
see Matthew 27:11-14; Mark 15:2-5; Luke 23:1-5; John 18:28-38
and when you read Luke’s account note how they twist and lie about what JESUS said regarding tribute to Caesar (taxes). Also note that Pilate ignored the tax issue and went straight to asking Him if He was a KING?

2nd Civil Trial
see Luke 23:6-12
Pilate perceived that JESUS was a Galilean which placed Him in Herod’s jurisdiction; he (Pilate) was glad to pass Him off to Herod and Herod was very glad to have JESUS appear before him. Herod had been wanting to see JESUS for some time. He wanted JESUS to perform a sign or two for him.

3rd Civil Trial
see Matthew 27:15-26; Mark 15:6-15; Luke 23:13-25; John 18:39-40
Verse 18 of Matthew 27 is of interest: Pilate knew the people handed JESUS over because of envy.  And the people shouted for Barabbas to be released and JESUS to be crucified.

Conclusion of trial – mocking and final condemnation
see Matthew 27:27-31; Mark 15:16-19; John 19:1-16
And he handed Him over to be crucified.

JESUS’ walk to Golgotha
see Matthew 27:32-34; Mark 15:20-23; Luke 23:26-32; John 19:17
Luke gives us the most details of the walk and John? John said only this:

John 19:17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.
via Matthew 27:32-34; Mark 15:20-23; Luke 23:26-32; John 19:17 NASB – As they were coming out, they found a – Bible Gateway.

And yet John did not leave HIS side; he was there at Golgotha with JESUS. John was there when JESUS died.

First 3 hours on the cross9:00 AM to NOON
see Matthew 27:35-44; Mark 15:24-32; Luke 23:33-43; John 19:18-27
Here they mocked Him more, they divided His garments, they cast lots for His robe and He prayed Father forgive them for they know not what they do and He made provisions with John for His mother.
Any soul that does not love this JESUS, does not KNOW this JESUS!

“Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.”

via Matthew 27:35-44; Mark 15:24-32; Luke 23:33-43; John 19:18-27 NASB – And when they had crucified Him, they – Bible Gateway.

Second 3 hours on the crossNoon to 3:00 PM
see Matthew 27:45-50; Mark 15:33-37; Luke 23:44-46; John 19:28-37

34 At the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “ELOI, ELOI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?” which is translated, “MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?”

via Matthew 27:45-50; Mark 15:33-37; Luke 23:44-46; John 19:28-37 NASB – Now from the sixth hour darkness fell – Bible Gateway.

And it was at that point the full weight of my sin and your sin was upon HIM.

2 Corinthians 5:21 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
21For He hath made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
via 2 cor 5:21 KJ21 – For He hath made Him who knew no sin to – Bible Gateway.

And to this I must ask of any soul still rejecting HIM: Seeing this, do you persistent in your rejection of HIM; and, if so, do you not see your rejection of His Sacrifice for you does indeed make you worthy of eternal hell?

Phenomenal Happenings
see Matthew 27:51-56; Mark 15:38-41; Luke 23:47-49
The veil in the Temple was torn from TOP to Bottom

39 When the centurion, who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!”
via Matthew 27:51-56; Mark 15:38-41; Luke 23:47-49 NASB – And behold, the veil of the temple was – Bible Gateway.

Tombs opened and bodies came forth after JESUS Resurrection – you know what that means don’t you?

Burial of the Body of JESUS
see Matthew 27:57-61; Mark 15:42-47; Luke 23:50-56; John 19:38-42

And the day closes on devastated people, particularly a Momma BUT Sunday’s  a coming!!

And, ABBA, all our hopes, all our faith, all our assurances hang upon JESUS’ Resurrection and we are sure, as sure as those who saw with their physical eyes because, HOLY SPIRIT, You have given sight to the eyes of our hearts and we KNOW. We know for sure He’s Alive. HE is alive! And we are forgiven!  Thank You. Thank You for giving us the Revelation of JESUS THE CHRIST. Thank You, JESUS, for making Yourself known to us. Thank You. Thank You.

We have the God-given Right to do right in this wrong World,
Praying (PFT)!
