Luke (Program #43) – The Man-Savior’s Presentation of Himself to Death for Redemption (2 & 3)

The ministry of the Lord Jesus during His human life took place primarily in Galilee, a region far to the North of  Jerusalem and away from the center of religious activity. But as the lamb of God, He has to be offered to God at the prescribed place, Mount Moriah, where Abraham offered Issac. It was there that He had to be delivered according to the counsel of the Trinity. In order to establish His absolute qualification to be the unique offering to God for the sins of mankind, He first had to submit Himself to the examination and question of religious and political leaders of the day.

Mark (Program #41) – The Death and Resurrection of the Slave-Savior for the Accomplishment of God’s Redemption (3)

On the day of His crucifixion, the Lord Jesus Christ hung on the cross for six hours, from nine in the morning until three in the afternoon.  During the first three hours, He suffered mocking, slander and humiliation at the hands of all manner of men even though He was dying to redeem.

But beginning at twelve noon something remarkable happen and is recorded in Mark chapter 15 verses 33-34, “And when the sixth hour came, darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is interpreted, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

During the final three hours of His time on the cross, the Lord Jesus was no longer been judged by evil mankind. He had taken upon Himself the sins of mankind to such an extend that God the Father even had to turn away from His beloved Son in righteous judgment, as Christ offered up Himself, an eternal sacrifice for all.

As believers we cherish this story and never tired of hearing it. But beyond this message of redemption and hope, this story also bears consideration for what it says about the inner relationship of the three divine persons in the Godhead.
