Jesus Loves Me This I Know: 

Jesus Loves Me This I Know (John 19:1-37)


Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged. The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on His head. They clothed Him in a purple robe and went up to Him again and again, saying, 'Hail, king of the Jews!' And they struck Him in the face. Once more Pilate came out and said to the Jews, 'Look, I am bringing Him out to you to let you know that I find no basis for a charge against Him.' When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe, Pilate said to them, 'Here is the Man!' As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw Him, they shouted, 'Crucify! Crucify!'


But Pilate answered, 'You take Him and crucify Him. As for me, I find no basis for a charge against Him.' The Jews insisted, 'We have a law, and according to that law He must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God.' When Pilate heard this, he was even more afraid, and he went back inside the palace. 'Where do You come from?' he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer. 'Do You refuse to speak to me?' Pilate said. 'Don't you realize I have power either to free You or to crucify You?'


Jesus answered, 'You would have no power over Me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed Me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.' From then on, Pilate tried to set Jesus free, but the Jews kept shouting, 'If you let this Man go, you are no friend of Caesar. Anyone who claims to be a king opposes Caesar.' When Pilate heard this, he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judge's seat at a place known as the Stone Pavement (which in Aramaic is Gabbatha). It was the day of Preparation of Passover Week, about the sixth hour.


'Here is your king,' Pilate said to the Jews. But they shouted, 'Take Him away! Take Him away! Crucify Him!' 'Shall I crucify your king?' Pilate asked. 'We have no king but Caesar,' the chief priests answered. Finally Pilate handed Him over to them to be crucified. So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. Carrying His own cross, He went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). Here they crucified Him, and with Him two others--one on each side and Jesus in the middle.


Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS. Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, 'Do not write 'The King of the Jews,' but that this Man claimed to be king of the Jews.' Pilate answered, 'What I have written, I have written.' When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took His clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.


'Let's not tear it,' they said to one another. 'Let's decide by lot who will get it.' This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled which said, 'They divided my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.' So this is what the soldiers did. Near the cross of Jesus stood His mother, His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw His mother there, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, 'Dear woman, here is your son,'


and to the disciple, 'Here is your mother.' From that time on, this disciple took her into his home. Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, 'I am thirsty.' A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips. When He had received the drink, Jesus said, 'It is finished.' With that, He bowed His head and gave up His spirit. Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jews did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.


The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other. But when they came to Jesus and found that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe. These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: 'Not one of His bones will be broken,' and, as another scripture says, 'They will look on the One they have pierced.' (John 19:1-37)

Suffering Savior: 

Suffering Savior Although the phrase is clearly an oxy-moron, Jesus was truly a suffering savior.

Suffering Savior: 

Suffering Savior Jesus was mercilessly flogged… But they wanted Jesus dead, not just hurt. Jesus was mocked, putting a crown of thorns on His head. Ironically, in their mockery they were crowning the King of Kings. Through Pilate’s words, God publicly proclaimed the innocence of His Son. This was God’s plan to set sinners free.

Suffering Savior: 

Suffering Savior Jesus did not defend Himself or plead for his life. On the cross He followed through with His promise.

Selfless Sacrifice: 

Selfless Sacrifice Jesus didn’t have to die. He chose to do so because this was the way to provide salvation for us. Jesus’ crucifixion was a selfless sacrifice.


Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends... (John 15:13-14)

Selfless Sacrifice: 

Selfless Sacrifice Christ hung on a tree. His cursing He redeemed us from the curse of the Law. Jesus was crucified outside the city. Christ endured the humiliation Jesus died the day before Passover. Lambs were slaughtered for the Passover meal. Jesus, the 'Lamb of God,' was offered up on our behalf.


Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends... (John 15:13-14)

Sin’s Solution: 

Sin’s Solution Why did Jesus die? Because this is the way God chose to make it possible for us to come to know and love Him. Jesus’ death on the cross was not a tragic mistake; Jesus’ death on the cross is sin’s solution.

Sin’s Solution: 

Sin’s Solution John’s record is so that we might believe. John proved Jesus truly dead. Jesus was the spotless Passover lamb, for no bone was broken. The blood and water that flowed from Jesus’ side is further evidence that Jesus was completely dead. By His death Christ won victory over sin—not for Himself, since He was sinless—but for us.


E=MC2 The equation of the Theory of Relativity S=0 The equation of Salvation Where S = Sin and 0 = Zero. Christ’s death equals the end of sin.
