"Good Friday." The Suffering & The Passion of Jesus Christ
#1
When I was a child, I played a part in a local annual "Passion Play", the story of Jesus' rise, crucifixion and resurrection.  My part was small, I carried a live lamb on stage and offered it to Pontius Pilate.  I did this for years.  It instilled an indelible memory of the suffering of our Christ.  I would watch rehearsal after rehearsal and cry my eyes out during the crucifixion.  It was more effective because I knew the fellow who portrayed Jesus, a great guy with a lovely daughter.

Take a few minutes today, relive the passion, pray and give thanks for His sacrifice.

"Christians all know Christ died for them on the cross. But a doctor here in Indianapolis who studied crucifixion for a decade says until you understand what Jesus went through medically, it’s hard to fully appreciate just how much He suffered to pay for the sins of mankind.

“It was the worst form of death that was imaginable,” Dr. Joseph Bergeron, the author of “The Crucifixion of Jesus,” said. “And the Romans had been using it for three centuries by the time Jesus came along, so it was well perfected.”

"“And to be honest with you, I never really understood that or even thought it happened,” Bergeron admitted. “But in studying the crucifixion extensively over the last 10 years, I’ve come to understand that sweating blood does actually occur. There’ve been very few cases – just a handful. They’re always before severe injury, the threat of injury, and usually before execution. That Jesus sweat drops of blood meant that He fully understood what was about to happen to Him.”

And then it began as Jesus was taken captive and led off to two groups of tormentors. The Jews and Romans both bludgeoned and tore His flesh in two vicious beatings.

Bergeron said of those Jews, “Caiaphas and the Sanhedrin convicted Him of blasphemy, which was punishable by death.”

But under Roman rule the Jews had no authority to execute, so they physically and brutally punished Him. Then a whole company of Roman soldiers beat Him to within an inch of His life."

"Today shall you be with me in paradise" - The Bible.

I like that part when Jesus loves and forgives the lowliest criminal even during his most grueling torment.

When you truly consider it, His suffering was unimaginable. He was so brave. I am humbled to be one of His followers! I am not worthy at all, but by His sacrifice, I and all of us, are cleansed by His blood! Thank you Jesus! Heartflowers

My eyes STILL well up with bittersweet tears. Heartflowers

Good Friday should be renamed "Thanksgiving."

I don't see how you did it. I played Mary when I was eight years old in a Nativity play (only because I had the longest hair) and  still remember it vividly.

I am very 'tender hearted' as my dad used to say and being involved in  Passion Play would've probably done a number on me. No wonder it affected you.
