Here's a week five recap!
// Jesus is a real person who existed in history.
// We can trust that the Bible says now what it said then,
and even more we can trust that it’s reliable historical information.
//The books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were either were followers of Jesus or who knew followers of Jesus, and they wrote good accounts of Jesus’ life.
//Jesus isn’t crazy. He was a mentally sound, stable, non-manipulative individual.
// Jesus did fit the description of the Messiah of the Old Testament, which is who He claimed to be.
// Jesus’ biggest claim about being this Messiah is that He would die and come back to life in three days.
// Luke 22:44 tells us Jesus was so anxious he sweat blood. That’s a condition called Hematidrosis, caused by extreme anxiety/stress.
// John 19: 1 tells us Jesus was flogged-whipped with a leather whip with metal balls and pieces of bone woven in. Ripped open his back to the muscle.
// John 19:18-19 Jesus was crucified-had 5-7 in spikes driven through the wrist, then his feet, and slowly would have died from heart failure because he couldn’t lift himself to breathe anymore.
// John 19:34 says that his side was pierced and blood and water came out. Shock + accelerated heart rate + heart failure=clear fluid collecting around the heart and lungs.
To be pierced like He was would release the blood and watery fluid
So Yes, Jesus died. But why? Why go through so much for us?
//Jesus' death reflects God's heart for us. God's love is self-emptying and self-sacrificial. Next week we will talk about the resurrection, and if that's possible!
