| THE EVIDENCE of JESUS CHRIST DEATH
From the first day that Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead there has been
controversy among mankind as to whether or not He actually died on the cross.
Many people were present at the crucifixion and obviously believed that He died --
was dead and placed in the grave – tomb. Among them were some of the
religious leaders of the day, the Roman soldiers who crucified Jesus and some of
Jesus’ followers, all obviously believed that He was dead.
There is a verse, John 19: 34, that gives very strong evidence that Jesus died as
result of the crucification. This is often over looked, not realizing its importance
because of its simplicity.
“But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and
water came out.”
I understand the importance of this statement, having grown up on a farm where
we killed animals and prepared the meat for our food; -- calves, pigs, chickens,
deer, and wild pigs.
After a physical body has been dead for only a short time -- no blood pressure,
thus no circulation – you can pierce the body almost anywhere and get very little
blood. Only by piercing the heart can you find a flow of blood.
It would be reasonable that a Roman soldier who is trained for warfare with
swords, spears and knives would be instructed how best to kill – pierce the heart.
Thus, when the soldiers were instructed to determine if Jesus was dead, the
soldier simply pierced His heart giving the proof that He had been dead for some
JESUS WAS DEAD !!
More important than His death was His resurrection.
Hundreds of people saw Jesus Christ after the resurrection – His resurrected
They gave testimony of Jesus’ resurrection and His ascension from the earth.
The evidence is given clearly.
ONLY YOU CAN FIND THE PROOF IN YOUR OWN HEART AND SOUL.
