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.
