What does the Crucifixion of Jesus Mean Bible Verse for Today
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.” (1 Peter 3:18)
Jesus submitted himself for our sake, he didn’t make any statement, and he was flogged and killed. On the cross, he said, “It is finished.” This statement means all our sufferings, all our sicknesses, all our sin is finished. Who can do this for the world, he loved us more than anyone can love us.
The death of our Lord is not what just happen suddenly, it has been spoken by the prophets in the Old Testament of how the Lord would be beaten for our sake, how he would brutalize only for us to be saved. Isaiah 53:3-5 says, “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds, we are healed.”
What does the Crucifixion of Jesus mean? We should be happy that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for our sins because with this he brings us closer to God and now we can enter into the Kingdom of God by his Grace. When Jesus was telling his disciples about his death, Peter tried stopping Jesus then Jesus rebuked him (Mark 8:33).
So what does the Crucifixion of Jesus mean? It means that Jesus was so keen on setting the human race free from the bondage of sin and nothing can stop him. It is “good” for us if we appreciate his death by accepting that it is for our Salvation.
