JESUS: THE FINAL 24 HOURS
What happened to Jesus during the final 24 hours of his life on earth fulfilled dozens of specific Old Testament prophecies — yet those prophecies were made between 500-1,500 years before His birth! Obliterating the law of “compound probability,” the likelihood of Jesus fulfilling all these prophecies within 24 hours is 1 in 33,000,000. This message reinforces the truth that the Bible is a book that people couldn’t write if they would and wouldn’t write if they could.
When we consider the many other prophecies that Jesus fulfilled during His time on earth, it becomes clear that He was, and is, the Messiah. This message will help you appreciate what Jesus did for you leading up to and including the cross, and help you live for God as a result. Have you trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior, not only for the forgiveness of all your sins, but the complete rule of your life? If not, this message will inspire you to do exactly that.

THE PHYSICAL DEATH OF JESUS CHRIST
A medical doctor examines exactly what happened when Jesus hung on the cross . . .
“No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.” – Jesus, John 10:18 (ESV)
Here’s a very special resource to help you appreciate all Jesus did for YOU and for His Father when He went to the Cross. It’s an AMAZING article originally written by medical doctors and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), and is called “The Physical Death of Jesus Christ.” It will absolutely inspire you to Remember: Jesus was not murdered. He voluntarily gave His life for you and me because of love, love, love. And, because without the shedding of blood, there can be no forgiveness of sin (Hebrews 9:22)
Isaiah 53:5 helps us understand that through the cross of Jesus Christ, God simultaneously displayed His love, while dealing with the problem of sin:
Mercy and judgment kissed at the cross. “For God so loved the world that He gave His one of a kind, uniquely brought forth son, that WHOEVER believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
