Video from The Bible Project
The Crucifixion of Jesus
"Jesus' work and ministry culminated in a week of controversy leading up to the celebration of Passover. In this video, we'll explore the Gospel of Luke 19-23, and how it came about that the innocent Jesus ended up being executed as a revolutionary rebel against Rome. We'll also see how Jesus was not at all surprised because he believed that his death would open up a new future for Israel, and for all humanity." from the video introduction
It was the single most horrible day in the history of the world yet we call it Good Friday. No suffering has ever been so undeserved. No human has ever been so unjustly treated, yet no other human has ever been so worthy of praise because no one else has ever lived without sin. No other human has ever been God himself. No horror can surpass what took place on a hill outside Jerusalem almost two millennia ago.
