Jesus was crucified on a cross by Roman soldiers because of pressure from religious leaders who were furious that he claimed to be God and was attracting large crowds of followers.His body was placed in a guarded tomb, but after three days, he was miraculously alive again, outside the tomb, meeting at various times and places with hundreds of disciples.Forty days later he left earth by rising and disappearing into the clouds in the presence of witnesses, after instructing them to tell the entire world what they had seen and heard.Jesus’ time on earth was progression from a miraculous beginning to a miraculous ending. The beginning showed his humanity, the ending showed his deity.We call him Jesus Christ. Jesus is his name, human; Christ is his title, deity.He used miracles to authenticate his deity; otherwise, people would not believe him.The Bible says that Jesus Christ is now in heaven, from where he came, and that he will return to earth at an unknown time to gather the living and dead for final judgment.Some say, So Jesus died, but only for three days. That’s not a huge sacrifice.The point is not how long he remained dead or what happened when he was in hell for three days. The point is that he died as the only once-for-all sacrifice acceptable to God, forever ending all other sacrificial systems.Furthermore, as humans, we are incapable of understanding what pain and humiliation Jesus had to endure, even for three days, to bear all the sins of the world.
