How did Jesus Die?


Jesus was betrayed by his disciple, Judas Iscariot, to the Roman soldiers. Judas promised to give information about the whereabouts of Jesus to the Roman soldiers after they bribed him for 30 pieces of silver. The Roman soldiers brought him to the house of the high priest, and a trial was held before the chief priests and whole Sandherin assembly.

Several Jews tried to made false accusations against Jesus but they did not succeed. Finally, one came up and accused Jesus of saying tear down the temple and he will build it back in 3 days. But they did not know that the temple Jesus referred is his body. What he means is that the Jews will crucify him and he will die but he will resurrect to life on the 3rd day. They decided to sentenced Jesus to crucifixion on the cross because he said he is the son of God. Pilate tried to free Jesus by asking the crowd whether they want to free Barabbas or Jesus and the crowd keep telling him to crucify Jesus. Pilate asked this question because it is a custom to free one prisoner of the crowd’s choice.

While Jesus was being crucified on the cross, the soldiers divided his clothes and cast them by lots. The soldiers made a crown of  tried to offer him wine mixed with gall but he would not drink it after tasting it. Just before Jesus died, he said, “It is finished”, meaning he has completed the mission that the Father God had sent him to do, to be a sin offering, as a blameless lamb, for the sins of the people by dying on the cross.

God so love the world that he sent his only begotten son, Jesus Christ to die for the sins of the people of the world. Anyone who acknowledge Jesus as their Lord and savior can inherit the kingdom of God and be saved. If you want to be saved, you must also take up your cross to follow Jesus and do God’s commandments in the bible.

Blood and water flow out of his heart when a Roman soldier use a spear to pierce his side as his body suffers a hemorrhagic shock due to the severe injury caused by beatings and floggings by the Roman soldiers. This may have cause fluid to accumulate in the heart and lungs. This may explain why blood and water flows out when the Roman soldier pierced his side.

Another reason that blood and water flows out may be that Jesus die of a broken heart because he loves the people of the world very much but they rejected him.

But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. (John 19:34 KJV)

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:3-5 KJV)

For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. (Romans 5:6-11 KJV)
