The Day Christ Died
Series: ONE WEEK TO LIVE
It has been estimated by historians that perhaps as many as 30,000 people were executed by crucifixion – occasionally several in one day – in the Roman Empire around the time of the life of Jesus. However, only one of those deaths changed the world.
What was so unique about Jesus’ death? Why was it important? Why should his death be singled out for recognition? Why did he suffer and die? The central issue of Jesus’ death is not the cause, but the meaning behind it. That is what this week’s message is all about as we consider the day Christ died – the most dramatic day in history.
