For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:21
The stage was set. The actors were each in their places. The script was ready to be followed. And yet, there were no special effects. No unique and moving soundtracks playing in the background.
The scenes leading to the Cross on Golgotha included, a last supper, the singing of an hymn, prayer, and betrayal. A man’s ear was cut off. Jesus re-attached and healed the ear. Armed men came to arrest the innocent and submissive Lamb of God. Jesus willingly went with them
After the mock trials, false witnesses, and and shuffling between leaders, Jesus was led to be slaughtered. The people were cheering. There was applause, laughter, and mocking.
After being beat, the bloodied Jesus carried His cross uphill to the place of the skull. Jesus was going to the Cross as any common criminal. Sinner. Man.
