He is the Life:
John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”
He enters the city, victoriously receiving the praise of His people.
John 12:13 With joy they “Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet Him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.”
He is later betrayed.
Matthew 20:18 “Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death,”
He is tried, condemned and scourged.
Matthew 27:26 “Then released he Barabbas [the robber] unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified.”
He is mocked as He hung on a cruel Roman cross.
Matthew 27:40 “…. save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.”
He is declared dead, removed from the cross and buried in a tomb.
John 19:30 “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, IT IS FINISHED: and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost.” John 19:34 “But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.” Matthew 27:59-60 “And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.”
Three days later He is absent from the tomb, having risen under His own power.
John 20:1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. Mark 16:6 “And he [an Angel] saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: HE IS RISEN; He is not here: behold the place where they laid Him.”
He is seen , believed on by hundreds and ascends into Heaven.
1 Corinthians 15:6a “After that, He was seen of above five hundred brethren at once;” 1 Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”
This is Jesus the Christ, God in the flesh who died in your place that you may have Heaven forever.
1 Cor. 15:3-4 “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
Now, what should be our decision?
John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Please believe in Jesus Christ alone to be YOUR Savior. He died for you, in your place and offers to you, eternal life as a free gift. If you trust Him alone, you will pass from eternal death to eternal LIFE in Christ.
Now, from death to life. Truly, “IT IS FINISHED” by Jesus Christ Himself. Our salvation is eternally secure in Him alone.
“But,” you say, “I have already trusted Christ as my Savior.”
Wonderful, then tell a friend about Christ!
