The Cross He Bore Chapter 13 - Epilogue

April 15, 2020 | by: Johnny Ruiz | 0 Comments

We continue this week with our meditations on the sufferings of our Redeemer. I pray that the church would meditate on Jesus’ death and resurrection every day, not just on Easter. Christ work on the cross and his resurrection are the foundation of our faith. If these things aren’t true, then “we are off all people most to b... Keep Reading

The Cross He Bore Chapters 9-12

April 8, 2020 | by: Johnny Ruiz | 2 Comments

Before my conversion, I was always one who “believed” that the Bible was true. I thought that what Jesus did was a “nice thing”. The message of Christ’s cross had been upon my ears since I was born, but I never truly heard it. I never had my eyes opened to what it truly meant that, “while we were still sin... Keep Reading

The Murder of Jesus Chapters 9-12

April 8, 2020 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 1 Comments

Chapter Nine The corrupt Jewish leaders did not want to be personally involved in Jesus’ execution. They had become fearful of public opinion about killing Jesus. They wanted the responsibility of Jesus’ death to be shared. If the people revolted over Jesus’ execution, the leaders could shrug and blame the universally hate... Keep Reading

The Cross He Bore Chapters 5-8

April 1, 2020 | by: Johnny Ruiz | 4 Comments

Last week we spent our time reading about the events in the garden of Gethsemane. At the end of chapter four, Jesus was arrested and lead away to be tried. Jesus, in his obedience and humility, allowed these things to take place.  We cannot forget that this is God we are talking about. “For this reason the Father loves me, because... Keep Reading

The Murder of Jesus Chapters 5-8

April 1, 2020 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 1 Comments

Chapter Five To the casual observer, It would have seemed that Jesus’ prayer in the garden went completely unanswered. Though Jesus usually confounded the Pharisees and Sadducees at every encounter, this night was different. An armed mob that may have numbered in the hundreds accompanied Judas to Gethsemane, wielding clubs and swords.... Keep Reading

The sufferings of Christ are something that I have longed to comprehend with depth and clarity since my conversion. To have a better understanding of the sufferings of Christ is to have a better understanding of the seriousness of our sin, as well as the glory of God’s grace to an undeserving people. When the punishment for sin is view... Keep Reading

The Murder of Jesus Chapters 1-4

March 25, 2020 | by: Jarrod Lamberth | 0 Comments

In human justice systems, the innocent are sometimes wrongly punished, while the wicked sometimes escape, or even prosper. The greatest example of justice gone awry would have to be the arrest, trial, and crucifixion of Jesus – the only truly innocent man who ever lived. But Jesus’ death was only a great injustice in one sense. ... Keep Reading
