Forsaken by God?

Forsaken by God? 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46 This has always been the one single verse in the Bible that truly shocks and strikes me deeply in my heart. […]


Darkness 45 Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. Matthew 27:45 This, for me, is the most difficult time of Jesus’ mission while here on earth. Jesus was with the Father and Spirit before anything was produced. Before anything was created, even before emptiness- before space itself […]

Between Sinners

Between Sinners 38 Then two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and another on the left. 39 And those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads 40 and saying, “You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself! If You are the Son of God, come down […]

King of the Jews

King of the Jews 37 And they put up over His head the accusation written against Him: THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. Matthew 27:37 What a title to be over Jesus when he died. In other gospels, the Jewish leaders tried to get that title changed. They wanted it to start with, ‘He said…’ […]

Divided Garments

Divided Garments 35 Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lot, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet: “They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.” 36 Sitting down, they kept watch over Him there. Matthew 27:32 Most scholars believe that the book of Matthew was […]

Fake Worship

Fake Worship 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole garrison around Him. 28 And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. 29 When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, […]

His Blood on Us

His Blood on Us 22 Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!” 23 Then the governor said, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified!” 24 When Pilate saw that he could not […]

Listen to Your Wife

Listen to Your Wife 19 While he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, “Have nothing to dowith that just Man, for I have suffered many things today in a dream because of Him.” 20 But thechief priests and elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas and […]


Barabbas 15 Now at the feast the governor was accustomed to releasing to the multitude one prisoner whom they wished. 16 And at that time they had a notorious prisoner called Barabbas. 17 Therefore, when they had gathered together, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release to you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?” 18 For he knew […]

They Testify Against You

They Testify Against You 13 Then Pilate said to Him, “Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?” 14 But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly. Matthew 27:13-14 You will never be liked or accepted by everyone around you. You can be the nicest person. You can be kind and […]
