Atonement and Crucifixion are linked through the Cross
CRUCIFIXION- First, Jesus wasn’t only person crucified; it was a very common practice, a practice the Romans perfected.
- Pain of crucifixion so great they invented new word ”excruciating,” which literally means “at the cross.”
- Crucified people would hang on the cross from a few hours to sometimes days.
- Crucified men only
- IF a woman WAS ever crucified which was RARE, she was facing away from the crowd
- They were naked- like nailing a naked man to the entrance of the front of a mall. It was meant to EXPOSE THEIR SHAME
- Once dead, victims usually not buried, but left for the vultures to pick apart.
- Josephus, the Jewish historian called it “the most wretched of deaths.”
JESUS VICTORY AT THE CROSS - Describe the last night, hermatadrosis in the garden
- His arrest, his mockery of a trial
- Describe Jesus’ physical condition as a result of scourging
- Carrying his own cross—note Matt 16: 24—“take up your own cross”=carry it, just like Jesus did on the way to his death, embrace it.
- at Golgotha, they plucked out his beard, then stripped him naked
- Embarrassing, shaming, humiliating
- 7-inch nails, Mocking crowd
- Asphyxiation was the cause of death…inability to expand the lungs
The most wretched, shameful, and humiliating death becomes the greatest VICTORY!
