Religious Church Folk Executed Jesus the Christ

Religious Church Folk Executed Jesus the Christ

 Happy Easter in celebration of Resurrection Day

By Samuel Marcus Brown



If you were to study the life of Jesus the Christ and understand the reason of why God  the creator needed him (himself in flesh and blood as his son) to walk this earth as a human being. He created environments of love, sacrifice, repentance, feeding the poor, healing physical and mental needs of the people while imparting the importance of understanding the purpose of his life by foregoing the religious traditions of that day that required obeying the law of Moses and other rituals, ceremonies and traditions that consisted of sacrificial  blood of goats, oxen, sheep, bullocks and etc. to cover the sins of mankind and many other religious rituals and traditions of men posturing in the tabernacles and synagogues.


It was the traditional religious community who resented Jesus the Christ for his new teachings about the power of faith, love and repentance that now covers sin; they didn't like the fact that he healed people on the 7th day of the week which went against their religious traditions of keeping the sabbath day holy. They couldn't stand how Jesus called them out on their hypocrisy of the things that they did and allowed on the 7th day along with all of their other inconsistencies.


 You must understand that Jesus was considered a trouble maker and a threat to their religious customs and traditions of that day; so much so that they put a hit out on him and they eventually caught him and executed him in the most inhumane way of executing someone of that day.


It was foretold  in the old testament of the bible that Jesus would revolutionize the world through his life, death, burial and resurrection. He did not come to abolish the law of Moses; he fulfilled it by the shedding  of his blood and becoming the sacrificial lamb for all of our sins. He is known today as the Lamb of God.


 Believing and following the example of Jesus is simple, peaceful and restful. It is so unfortunate that today many traditional religious folk still undermine the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus the Christ by clinging to certain laws of Moses, religious rituals, judgment and traditions holding themselves and other of God's people in bondage; giving Christianity a bad name instead of walking in the truth of the New Covenant.


When Jesus left the earth resurrected back to heaven; he left the believers with a gift called the Spirit of Truth which is better known as the Holy Spirit which is the comforter and conscience of our souls.


Happy (Resurrection Day) Easter!


A great friend of mine forwarded an email entitled 
 'THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS'
by an unknown author. I thought the timing was impeccable; so I decided to share it in this posting which will allow you to experience the full gravity of what you just read.
 May God Bless You All!


At the age of 33,
Jesus was condemned to the death. At the time crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst
criminals were condemned to be crucified. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet.


Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long. The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly
portrayed. There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back
muscles to support himself so that He could breath.


Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that
impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs because of the pain so He was forced to alternate between arching His back then using his legs just to continue to breath. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage.


Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours. Yes, over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from his wounds. From common images we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side... But do we realize His wounds were actually made in his body. A hammer driving large nails through the wrist, the feet overlapped and an even large nail hammered through the arches, then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. But before the nails and the spear Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture.


He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His Wounds.The human adult body contains about 3.5 liters (just less than a gallon) of blood. Jesus poured all 3.5liters of his blood; He had three nails hammered into His members; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His chest... All these without mentioning the humiliation He suffered after carrying His own
cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight, only for its higher part, where His hands were nailed).Jesus had to endure this experience, to open the Gates of Heaven, so that you can have free access to God. So that your sins could be "washed" away.
All of them, with no exception! Don't ignore this situation.
