Matthew (Program #72) – Judged, Crucified and Buried

The Gospel of Mark, chapter 15, tells us that Jesus was crucified at the third hour of the Jewish day, or nine o’clock in the morning. He hung there for six full hours before yielding His final breath – six hours, unlike any other in human history. For in that day, both the wickedness and unrighteousness of man were displayed as never before or since; as well as the absolute righteousness of our Holy and Just God.  The account of these 6 hours in the gospel of Matthew is surely something that no one should miss.
