  • What Really Killed Jesus?

    What really killed Jesus? 

    Was it the nails that pierced his wrists and feet, or maybe the spear that punctured his side?  Was it the cruel words that echoed in his ears, their shouts to crucify, crucify?  Maybe it was his gasping for breath, or his thirst, or his breaking heart.  Whichever of these it may have been, I’m pretty certain that I played a part in why someone so innocent, so good, so young had to die?  I am quite sure that I know why.  They scourged him and mocked him and stripped this man.  I looked away, only to see his blood on my hands.  Naked and bleeding and paraded by men.  He carried the cross.  He buried my sin.  As I look more closely, I finally see.  It’s not what really killed Jesus, but who?  It was me.

    Yeah, that's certainly in line with Romans 4: 25, He was delivered for our transgression and raised again for our justification.
