Jesus, the Righteous, Was Crucified at CalvaryHistory, Religion — By Dustin R. Steeve on April 10, 2009 at 1:26 pm
Today the Church remembers the historical crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. If one is to believe the historicity of any ancient event, one must believe in the historic crucifixion of Jesus, called the Christ. Oral accounts became written accounts, and those written accounts have been preserved and disseminated across cultures from the day of the event until now.
Today, people around the world, on every continent, of many tribes and tongues will think upon the death of Jesus. As hundreds of millions around the world turn their attention to one world altering event, they will look to the gospels where eyewitness accounts of Christ’s death are recorded and made freely available to the world. Scholar, author, and pastor Mark D. Roberts has written an excellent essay on the death of Jesus as written by Dr. Luke. Luke’s account is especially meaningful to me, a Gentile Christian, because Luke himself was likely a Gentile writing to Gentiles thus his writing demonstrates that the work of Christ created a system of belief that is true cross-culturally, cross-racially, and internationally. I encourage you to read Dr. Robert’s insightful review of Dr. Luke’s account of the historic death of Christ.
Lord Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner. Great are You oh Lord and great are your works! Praise be to God for the love that He has shown the world on this day. Amen. ‘
