The words of witnesses

 

The death of Jesus Christ as from witnesses.

So often the historical details of His death are emphasized without considering the spiritual detail. Just now I would like to hear from those who were witnesses.

Peter:

“Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous that He might bring us to God” 1 Peter 3:18

John:

“In this the love of God has been made manifest among us, that God sent His only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

1 John 4:9

Crucified thief:

 “ This man has done nothing wrong” Luke 23:41

Centurion soldier:

“Truly this was the Son of God”  Matthew 27:54

Other voices from that time.

Paul

“ Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, He was buried , He was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:3

Hebrews

“ so Christ having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time , not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for Him”  Hebrews 9:28

In the Old Testament the prophets foretold:

Isaiah

He was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities, upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His stripes we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way, and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:5

Daniel

“The Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself” Daniel 9:26

 

Many more explanations of the death of Jesus Christ are given in the Old and New Testament. Search and be rewarded.
