Born to be Crucified!

The crucifixion of Jesus is the most
irrational fact of history!

He was the only perfect Man who
ever lived.

His enemies were forced to
employ false witnesses.

Pilate tried Him, found Him guiltless
and then allowed Him to be crucified.

His life was the epitome of virtue.
And yet He died a death reserved for
the most vicious criminals.

The number one criminal (Barabbas)
went scot-free, while the perfect
Man died on a cross.

Jesus Christ was not a martyr.
He died because He had come to die.
He was born to be crucified.
The cross was His objective.

For this reason John introduced
Him as - "the Lamb of God". Lamb
meant one thing - sacrifice.

His teachings are meaningless apart
from this supreme moment in history.
The moment He laid down His life
for man.

"Hereby perceived we the love of God,
because he laid down his life for us."
1 John 3:16.
