The passion and death of Jesus Christ is one of the most important historical events in the history of mankind, but this goes beyond being a narration of a particular event, for the suffering and death of Jesus Christ is one of the most important events in the history of mankind. Jesus not only represents the beginning of Christianity and the essence of the whole theology Christian which includes the doctrines of salvation and atonement for our sinsThe only thing we need is the recognition as believers that Jesus lived and suffered all this for us in order to make us saved so that we could attain eternal life.
The passion of Christ is described in the New Testament from the BibleThese events took place in the province of Judea, during the Jewish Passover (Passover), and describe the arrest of Jesus, his trial by the Sanhedrin and the sentence to death by the governor Pontius Pilate. The Passion of Jesus Christ shows us the terrible suffering to which Jesus Christ was subjected and his crucifixion, but more important is the meaning that as believers this is.
The passion, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ shows us that He was not an ordinary human being but that He is God incarnate and that He came into the world to redeem humanity, to save us from our sins and to conquer death with His resurrection.
Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ is the fundamental pillar of all Christian belief, and the gospels would have no meaning or sustenance, for without that promise we would have no hope or faith to stand before God and attain forgiveness of our faults in order to have eternal life through Christ.
But in addition to what the Sacred Scriptures When we describe the Passion and Crucifixion of Christ, we often miss beautiful details that demonstrate that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah promised by God and the prophets to teach us the way of truth and righteousness, as well as eternal life.
At the time of his death, Jesus Christ taught us forgiveness and compassion through the act of sorry those who crucified him. Also with his victory over death, Jesus teaches us that through him we will live again and enjoy eternal life.
There are also other details or signs that demonstrate that Jesus is the incarnate Son of God, some of which are described below:
At the time of Jesus' death the day was darkened
The evangelists Matthew and Luke describe that at noon the sun disappeared and it was dark for several hours (Matthew 27:45; Luke 23:44-45).
The veil of the temple was torn
"Then Jesus cried out again with a loud cry, and yielded up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple sanctuary was torn in two, from top to bottom" (Matthew 27:50-51a).
The veil of the Temple was a thick curtain that separated the Holy Place from the Holy of Holies, and was where God's presence on earth dwelt and to which only the High Priest had access. At the death of Jesus, the curtain is torn and this fact symbolizes that after the sacrifice of the son of God, we all have access to the presence of our Lord. Father and to the forgiveness of our sins. Jesus is the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, his sacrifice being the infinite offering to redeem us as sinners. It is no longer necessary to sacrifice lambs, for with the blood of Jesus the sins of the world are put away. sin through their sacrifice.
The earth shook
St. Matthew (Matthew 27:51b) describes that when Jesus expired, the earth shook so hard that rocks broke, another sign of the holiness of Jesus Christ that even nature reacted to his death.
The tombs were opened and the resurrection of the saints occurred.
Because of the strong tremor, the tombs were opened and many people who were dead were resurrected, according to the bible, they were holy people who loved and served God and had another opportunity to live on earth to give testimony of the great and infinite power of God's infinite power. love of God (Matthew 27:52-53).
Transformation of the centurion and others present at the event
With the death of Jesus and the true understanding of his infinite love for us through his sacrifice we can change and transform our lives and our hearts, being more compassionate, feeling peace and peace of mind. true love in us. An example of this is what happened to the centurion who could not resist the love of Christ and praised God saying:
"Truly this man was righteous. Then those who had gathered to see the sight went away, beating their breasts" (Luke 23:46-48).
Whoever knows God and understands his infinite love can never be the same again; Christ crucified cleansed us from all sin and teaches us to live in love for our neighbor and to accept that we are all brothers and sisters without distinction of any kind.
The death and crucifixion of Jesus taught us that Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of God, that whoever believes in Him is united to the Father and saved from his sins; that the Holy Scriptures are true and that the work of Jesus continues on earth through the Holy Spirit giving us strength, hope, faith and conviction to live under the love and the precepts of God, giving us the hope alive.
