Week 36 Day 6
Jesus had a bright star at his birth
and an eclipse of darkness
at his death
he was born at night under bright lights
and died during mid day
under cover of darkness.
Jesus referred to himself throughout his ministry
as the Son of Man
he was also called Son of David
the Great Messiah
the Anointed One
now as he is dying his enemies in jest call him
Jesus' kingdom of heaven is not a tangible place
we cannot see it with our natural eyes
but it is real and has outlasted
every other kingdom on earth
the kingdom of heaven
that God reigns
and willing subjects
you and I
we honor King Jesus whenever we hear the words of God
and practice them
in humility and love.
HIS BROKEN BODY
With enemies up close and friends far away, Jesus' died.
27Soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the
whole garrison. 28They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe
on Him. 29They twisted a crown of thorns, and put it on His
head, and a reed in His hand. They bowed the knee before Him
and mocked, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!" 30They spat on
Him, took the reed and struck Him on the head. 31Then they
took the robe off, and led Him away to be crucified.
32They found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. Him they
compelled to bear His cross. 33When they had come to a place
called Golgotha, 34they gave Him sour wine mingled with gall
to drink. But when He had tasted it, He would not drink.
35Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments,
casting lots, which was spoken by the prophet: "They divided
My garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots."
37They put over His head the accusation:
THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
38Two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and
another on the left. 41The chief priests, mocking with the
scribes and elders, said, "If He is the King of Israel, let him
come down from the cross, and we will believe Him."
45From the sixth hour until the ninth there was darkness
over all the land. 46Then Jesus cried out with a loud voice,
saying, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?"
50Jesus cried out again, and yielded up His spirit. 51And
behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth quaked, rocks were split, 52and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints were raised. 53After His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
54When the centurion and those with him guarding Jesus,
saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they
feared greatly, saying, "Truly this was the Son of God!"
57At evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea,
named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of
Jesus. 58This man asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Pilate
commanded the body be given to him. 59When Joseph had
taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth; 60and laid
it in his new tomb hewn out of the rock. He rolled a large stone
against the door, and departed. 61Mary Magdalene was
there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the tomb. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
