The Last Week of Jesus | Day 5 - CHLS Messianic Seder Dinner
On the Friday of Passover, Jesus was crucified upon a Roman cross. This took place after a "trial" that was illegal by both Jewish and Roman standards. Although the death of Jesus was relatively quick for the act of a crucifixion, the brutal suffering inflicted upon his body served as the catalyst for a greater understanding of “the suffering servant” of Isiah 53. Following his death, his body was hastily thrown into a new cut tomb as the Sabbath was quickly approaching. His followers planned to return and open the tomb after Sabbath to properly anoint his body for burial. This was an act, that unbeknownst to them, was unnecessary.
