In the book of “Luke” in “The Holy Bible” Jesus is crucified and while on the cross he also calls out to his father, which is God. 7 After Luke is let out of the hole he goes back to his bunk, he returns ” broken by his tormentors and stripped of the respect of worshipful inmates”(William Web). They were disappointed because Luke finally gave into the bosses and they offer Luke no help at all. The other inmates appear sad and some are even trying. This is very similar to how Jesus was forced to carry his cross, and did not receive any help from his disciples, whom had followed him for years. His disciples only act sad and cry from the sidelines. 8 Dragline and Luke escape in the end and we see them hiding out in an orchard. Drag ends up selling out Luke’s whereabouts to the bosses, because he believes they will go easier on him. One of the saddest stories in ”The Holy Bible” is the story of how Judas betrayed Jesus and sold him out to be crucified in exchange for 30 pieces of silver. Jesus and Luke were both sold out to one of their closest and most reliable followers. 9 After Dragline betrays Luke, Luke is shot and killed by the man with no eyes. One of the last scenes depicts Dragline surrounded by inmates
“When He had finished praying, Jesus left with His disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was an olive grove, and He and His disciples went into it. Now Judas, who betrayed Him,
According to the Bible, Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus Christ by giving him away to the Roman Soldiers for 30 pieces of silver. Judas identified Jesus to the Romans with a kiss-- also known as the kiss of death-- in the Garden of Gethsemane, leading to the crucifixion of Christ. Judas became so guilt ridden over what he did that he hung himself, making him one of the two apostles to
40and saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. 41Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said, 42He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. 43He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God. 44The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
Judas left the upper room before the Lord used the leftover bread and fruit of the vine to create a memorial of the greatest sacrifice ever. Nonetheless, having been with the Lord approximately three years, Judas knew Jesus well. Judas not only knew the garden was a favorite of the Lord; he led the soldiers and temple police directly to the secluded area where Jesus prayed. They “came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.”
Simon found the joyful news that “the beast was harmless and horrible; and [he knew that] the news must reach the others as soon as possible. [Therefore,] he started down the mountain and his legs gave beneath him. Even with great care the best he could do was stagger” (Golding 147). He knew that because he knew this new and important information, he had to make his way to his friends, no matter what it took. He strived to help the society though they did not deserve it. This is because they have gone mad, capable of murder. “Simon was crying something about a dead man on a hill… at once the crowd surged after it, poured down the rock, lept on to the beast, screamed, struck, bit, tore” (Golding 152-153). The mad boys have attacked Simon even though he brought the great news that would have saved them, but he was killed before he could deliver the news to everyone. Much like Jesus who was crucified by humans, whom he wished to save, before he could deliver the news to all. “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die” (John 11.25). He wanted to deliver the new to the world that anyone who believes in him and God shall not die but have eternal life. But before Jesus told all he was crucified. “The Jewish leaders insisted, ‘We have a law, and according to that law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God’” ( John 19.7). The leaders insisted that because he claimed that he was Christ, that he should be killed for it. He was killed by those who he wanted to save. Both Simon and Christ had great news that would have saved many people, but before all heard they were killed by those whom they wanted to
At the time Jewish officials were afraid of the Messiah and the influence he was gaining over the people of Israel. People started to follow him and he was able to heal the sick with the touch of his hand. They began to plot against the messiah to see if they could capture him and eventually sentenced him to death. The priests had a snitch came to them in the story of Luke, "4 And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money," Luke 22:4-5 (Luke 22). After he collected his money he went to meet with Jesus and the other disciples for the Passover feast that was going to be held. At the feast the Prince of Peace announced; "Even my bosom friend in whom I trusted, who ate of my bread, has lifted his heel against me." Psalm 41:9. Stating that one of the twelve has betrayed him. Jesus knew before-hand that Judas was going to “stab him in the back”. How did the Son of God know this? It was no secret that Judas went to the temple and accepted the bounty for Jesus (“Betrayal”). After supper Jesus told Judas to stay with him and he will be forgiven or leave now and do what he has to do. Judas proceeded to leave the house as the rest of the disciples and his teacher went to a garden to spend the
At first glance, their reactions seem to react to the immediate announcement of the betrayer. But as we look deeper, their gestures also foreshadow events to come. Steinberg comments that left side of Christ were "his slower-witted disciples" responding to the announcement of the betrayal while those on his right were responding to his initiation of the Eucharist (p. 38). John, Judas and Peter form a triad on the left. Being the worldly impulsive person he is, he would have immediately reacted to the announcement of the betrayal instead of the deeper institution of the Eucharist.
Judas betrays Jesus and he is brought to the Prefect Pilate after being arrested based on the suspicion of acting treasonably by declaring himself King of the Jews. Pilate interrogates him several times and continuously finds that Jesus has done nothing wrong. After much time and the suggestions of the crowd, Pilate sentences Jesus to death by crucifixion, and he ultimately ends up on the cross. Jesus requests that Pilate write a specific inscription on the cross that says; “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.” Pilate tells the others that what he had written he had written, and then Jesus begins to declare that he is thirsty. At this point someone put of sponge of wine to his mouth and he says: “It is finished” (John, 19:30). Then, Jesus dies and the soldiers pierced him in the side with a spear.
Chapter 14 of this gospel provides a plot whereby the people we are presented with the passion of Jesus.in this case, the passion of Jesus is set up by having people who plot for the betrayal of Jesus. Jesus ids arrested and brought before the council where He to undergo his judgmental the events which take place in this chapter act as a preparation for others in the next chapters. Some events which are evident include: Judas agrees to betray Jesus, the
The teachings of Jesus focused primarily on the "the kingdom of God" and were usually relayed through parables drawing on familiar images from agricultural life. He rebuked the hypocrisy of some Jewish leaders and taught the importance of love and kindness, even to one's enemies. Jesus' popularity grew quickly, but so did opposition from local leaders. Roman rulers were uncomfortable with the common perception that he was the Messiah who would liberate the Jews from Roman rule, while Jewish leaders were disquieted by Jesus' shocking interpretations of Jewish law, his power with the people, and the rumor that he had been alluding to his own divinity. In the Gospels, Jesus repeatedly suggests to his disciples his end is near, but they do not fully understand or accept the idea. The clearest expression of this is at the "Last Supper," which took place on the night before his death. All four Gospels record that Jesus shared bread and wine with his disciples, asking them to "do this in remembrance of me." Christians celebrate this event in the sacrament of the Eucharist, or Communion. On this evening Jesus also predicts that one of them will betray him, which is met with astonishment and denial. But that very night, Jesus' fate was sealed when Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples and possibly the group's treasurer, led Roman soldiers to Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. As they arrested Jesus, the ever-colorful Peter defended his master with a sword, slicing off
Jesus stated to the disciples that he is to be betrayed that same night. All of them, even Judas, asked “Is it I?”. Jesus signaled who it was by giving Judas a piece of bread dipped in sauce. Jesus asked that he do what he was meant to do quickly. He went directly to the Sanhedrins after he departed from the Upper Room. The Sanhedrins is a higher ruling council made of Pharisees and Sagisees that made everyday religious and judicial designs. They can kind of compare to the House of Representatives. Judas signaled the soldiers who Jesus was by kissing him of the
Another theme that runs through Killing Jesus is sacrifice. The disciplines sacrificed their time with their families and their own money for Jesus and his teachings. Lambs were sacrificed by the people to forgive their sins. The ultimate sacrifices in Killing Jesus was the sacrifice of giving up his son for his people and Jesus giving up his own life. God gave up his only child's life for every person to have the opportunity to be with him forever. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16. Jesus could of ran when he knew Judas was going to give him up to the Caliph but he stayed to die because he knew it what was he need to do.
In this passage by Mark, Pilate asks the crowd of people who they wanted free: Jesus or Barabbas. Barabbas is a prisoner with murderers. Pilate asks the crowd if they wanted the Jesus, the King of the Jews, freed. The chief priests were jealous at the time of Jesus’ religious recognition and how much he was celebrated. Therefore, they brainwashed the crowds into rejecting Pilate’s offer and saying “Crucify him!” even though there is no reason to do so. Pilate does not want to risk his fame and appreciation from society, so he frees Barabbas the prisoner and sends Jesus to die. Jesus is tortured and mocked by the soldiers. They place a crown of thorns on his head and continue to disrespect him. After Jesus is wounded all over, he is sent to
