Read John 19:1-37
Jesus journeyed through suffering and pain to get to the empty tomb. He chose to suffer unimaginably so that today you and I might take this journey. Consider what Dr. David Acuna, a trauma surgeon has to say about the physical suffering Jesus endured. Then consider why He did it and praise Him.
(W)hen we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Rom. 5:6-8).
