Jesus Christ crucifixion of Jesus is recorded in the New Testament books, known as the Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Crucifixion was not only one of the most disgraceful forms of death, but it was also one of the most dreaded methods of execution in the ancient world.
The crucifixion of Jesus Christ and His resurrection are the two most important events in human history. Why is this so? Because of Jesus’ death, the human race has the opportunity for eternal salvation.
When the religious leaders came to the decision to put Jesus to death, they wouldn’t even consider that he might be telling the truth—that he was, indeed, their Messiah. As the chief priests condemned Jesus to death, refusing to believe him, they sealed their own fate.
Because most people do not understand the biblical high days Jesus Christ and His followers kept, they fail to understand the chronological details so accurately preserved for us in the Gospels.
