November 28, 2017 Psalm 54, john 19, Psalm 14, (29)

What a great God described here. John writes about the trial of Jesus by Pilate. He continued with the description of the crucifixion nd his burial. He is scoured by the soldiers and beaten with lead pipes and with other instruments. Someone was probably nearly dead by the time they were put on the cross. We however have the timing all wrong because this was before the Sabbath. This version doesn’t really discuss the other people who were crucified with him. This was a very cruel day. The Jews sacrificed as many as 100,000 lambs at the Passover and this is the time that Jesus, the sacrificial lamb, was killed or sacrificed. When did Joseph die? Psalm 22:18 is the reference for what happened during the crucifixion like the soldiers gambling for his cloak. A footnote to Matthew 26:14 says it was Christ’s destiny which is from the Aramaic. The Jews succession is thru the mother and Rabbi Portman said this happened in the first century ad because you could tell the mother but not necessarily the mother. Pilate wrote the inscription the king of the Jews which is represented bi the letters. INRI. The Jews wanted him to write Jesus says he is king of the Jews, Pilate responded what is written is written.
