The Crucifixion: Matt. 27:45-61

Nov 12, 2023    Cole Feix

In the Roman world, someone crucified would never have been seen as a hero. What was different about Jesus? The gospel writers don't spend much time telling us what happened when Jesus died, but they do tell us why he died and what it has to do with us. Each time we read about the crucifixion, we are confronted with Jesus Christ and encounter the reasons for his death.
