BEGINNER’S BIBLE COURSE #12

    THE MOSAIC AGE (PART 4)

    DEATH OF CHRIST (1)

    In this lesson, we will study the events leading to Christ’s death on the cross.
    In 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Paul tells the Corinthians (Christians at Corinth) that they were saved by the gospel. He says the gospel is how that Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, that He was buried and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 5:3-4). Since this is the gospel, we must read and study about Christ's death, burial and resurrection if we want to be saved from our sins.
    Jesus told His twelve apostles that one of them would betray Him. Shortly after Jesus said this, Judas one of the twelve apostles went to the chief priests and Pharisees (religious leaders of the Jews) and agreed to deliver Jesus into their hands for thirty pieces of silver. These religious leaders were very jealous of Jesus because many people have followed after Jesus’ teachings. They have sought to kill Jesus.

    GOSPEL is how that Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, that He was buried and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 5:3-4)

    Judas told them that the one whom he kissed would be Jesus. He then led the chief priests and Pharisees to Jesus and he kissed Jesus. The people then laid their hands on Jesus and they took Jesus to the High Priest (religious leader of the Jews).
    While Jesus was there, Peter one of the twelve apostles who was there too, denied three times ever knowing Jesus. Jesus had said earlier to Peter that, "I tell you, Peter, the rooster shall not crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me” (Luke 22:34). When Peter denied Jesus the third time, the rooster crowed. Peter remembered then what Jesus had said and he was very sad and sorry for what he had done. He went out and cried bitterly.
    Jesus was treated cruelly when He was taken before the High Priest. Some people spat on Him and others struck Him on the face. After this, He was taken to Pontius Pilate, the governor. Pilate questioned Jesus but found that Jesus had done nothing wrong.
    He then went out to the people and told them that he found that Jesus had done nothing wrong and he wanted to release Jesus.
    The people would not let him. They said, "if you let this man go, you are not Caesar's friend" (John 19:12) and they further cried out, “Away with Him! Crucify Him!” (John 19:15).
    Pilate had to turn Jesus to the demands of the people. The soldiers put a scarlet robe on Jesus. They plated a crown of thorns and put it on His head and they put a reed in His hand. After this they bowed before Him and mocked Him saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!". They spat on Jesus and hit Him with the reed.

    and they cried out, “Away with Him! Crucify Him!”

    When Judas saw that Jesus was condemned, he was remorseful. He brought the money that he had gotten for betraying Jesus and threw it down in the temple. He told the chief priests and elders that he had betrayed Jesus and that Jesus was innocent. After this, Judas hanged himself.
    We shall continue with the study of Jesus’ cruel death by being crucified on the cross for our sins, the death of God’s beloved Son in our next lesson.
