The Death Of Jesus Is A True Sacrifice.

Updated on July 1, 2013

Indroduction

This hub is going to be a very simple one and is only concerned about the truth of Jesus Christ's sacrifice. Jesus Christ's physical body was crucified when He was about 33 years old. Jesus suffered for our sins, but he not only suffered physically. He suffered much more then that. His physical sufferings were very severe

Physical Sufferings

Before Jesus Christ was crucified, He was beaten with whips using a method which is called scourging. Scourging is a whip that has a few leather ends on it. On those ends are lead balls. At first, the lead balls only leave bruises, but after being whipped a few times, the lead balls cut deeper and deeper into the body. Then the lead balls start to pull flesh out of the body. Of course this causes a lot of blood loss, a weakens a man.

The Next thing that happened was, that Jesus was given a crown of thorns. It was not just placed on his head, but forced down. Forced down so hard, He was bleeding all around His face. He was given this "crown" because He was "King of the Jews"

Jesus had lost so much blood, that when it came time for Him to carry the cross He could not do it alone. In Matthew 27:32 a man named Cyrenia is ordered to help Jesus carry the cross.

After this, Jesus was place upon the cross and nails are driven through his wrists and the arches of both his feet. At this point Jesus was feeling so much physical pain, how can you even imagine it?

Jesus suffered greatly and after six hours of suffering, he cried out ( Matthew 27:46) " My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

Shortly after that, Jesus gave up his physical body and died.

However, Jesus suffered much more then just what His physical body felt.

Spiritual Sufferings

Before Jesus was crucified, He went to the Mount of Olives to pray. In Matthew 22:42 Father if you wish to remove this cup from me, nevertheless, let your will, not my will be done.

Matthew 22:44 But getting into agony He continued to pray more earnestly and his sweat became drops of blood falling to the ground.

Jesus was in so much spiritual agony that he was actually sweating blood! Sweating blood is real. In fact it has been diagnosed as hematidrosis. It happens when people have very high levels of stress in emotional situations.

But, Jesus still followed God. He gave Himself over to the Romans. He never ran, or tried to hid. No, he simply followed the roman soldiers to prison.

Reason For Suffering

The reason Jesus was suffering so much, not only physically, but also spiritually was more than anyone can even imagine Jesus was suffering emotionally, so that we could be forgiven of our sins.

All of the sins that has ever been committed in the entire history of our world. Every sin, was thrown upon him. Every murder, torture, anything that anyone had ever done to harm one another! Jesus took all of it.

Jesus took the pain of the entire world, and He took it willingly.

There is so much pain in the world. He felt all of it. The pain of the entire world. And he did it, so we could be forgive of our sins.



Summary

Jesus Christ was crucified. He was tortured, spat upon, and nails were driven into his wrists and his feet. He was in great pain, not only in physical pain, but also spiritual pain. He felt the pain of sin, he felt the pain of people who had sinned against.

Jesus felt the pain of the entire world. And Jesus took all of it.

Jesus did this so that we could be forgiven of our sins, so that we could have everlasting life. Jesus was not forced to do this, He did because God loves us. God gave us a chance. God gave us a chance to be forgiven of our sins.

All that Jesus went through, all the pain He felt was real, this is why I feel the death of Jesus is truly a sacrifice. A very true sacrifice, one that will be true forever.

Do you believe Jesus Christ's death forgives us for our sins?

      MsDora I agree with you so much. I actually wrote this in response to someone else's hub. Who wrote that he only suffered for a few hours.

      Gratitude and submission are wonderful responses. Wish I could give you a thumbs up. In fact, instead of just reading your hubs, I will do that.

      Thanks Michele, for rubbing it in. We really need to come to terms with what Christ's life and death mean to us as individuals. Gratitude and submission are my response.

      Good evening Michele.

      What a beautiful picture of the most famous place on Earth, the Golgotha ! ..." so must the Son of Man be lifted up, in order that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him ." ( John 3: 14.15 ).

      So much needed a message reminding us of the magnitude of pain and suffering of the Savior. In this world of religious boasting , and comparison, and competition for a personal gain, as if the price of redemption came as an inexpensive grace , we need to be mindful that the road to the glory leads through the suffering .

      Thank's Michele , it's awesome, up and beautiful .

      By His blood we are saved and by His stripes we are healed - Isaiah 53:5. So we are as healed as we are saved if we will claim it. Enjoyed this very much Michelle, thank you.

      They were dank and dire and crude. Sometimes the art poorly done reflects mans' acts poorly done and is thereby fitting. I think that by you not concentrating on them ---- it put graphics in the proper light, for it is vision within us that shall never be revealed.

      You are teaching here like I wish I could. Taking scripture and using it to stir up feelings in us. Telling a good story. Not telling us rules and absolutes but thoughts and compassion. Moving us to take heart and give just an ounce back. Not to long and great graphics. Of course I loved the message. But I teared up a bit thinking of the Great heart that wrote it.
