The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - crucified
When we consider how much the church of God owes to the cross of Christ, and that the everlasting joy of heaven springs from the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus, it may well merit a place in our Concordance, to dwell a few minutes on the astonishing subject.
The cross, as far as we can learn from history, on which criminals were executed, was a kind of gibbet, with timber across, on which the person condemned to suffer was nailed. The body was suspended from those nails, which were driven through the hands, and the arms stretched out to each extremity. In this manner the criminal remained until life, from the extremity of suffering, expired. Some have said, that the wretched sufferers were first nailed to the cross, and then the whole body lifted on high, and the bottom of the cross fixed in a socket prepared for that purpose. And as this was done by a jerk, some of the bones were generally broken by this act of violence. But this is not probable. Indeed, in respect to the person of our Lord Jesus Christ, it is very unlikely to have been done, for "a bone of Him was not to be broken."
As crucifixion was not only the most painful but the most disgraceful of all deaths, the Roman law never allowed a Roman, be his crime whatever it might, to be thus degraded. It was only inflicted on slaves and criminals, for some more atrocious transgressions. And in order to heighten the shame and pain, the poor victims, so condemned to death, were first scourged, and their backs lacerated with whips or leathern lashes; and not unfrequently led through the city naked with their blood streaming from their wounds, and carrying their cross to the proposed place of execution. The reader will not need to be told, that thus they treated the Lord of life and glory, whom none of the princes of this world knew, until that the holy Sufferer fainted from beneath the load and severity of his pain, when they compelled one that was passing by to bear the cross for the Lord Jesus.
It was an additional aggravation to the ignominy of crucifixion, that the sufferer was perfectly naked, and without the smallest covering. Thus all criminals suffered. And when we consider the personal cruelties all along shewn to the Lord Jesus, we cannot suppose, that the smallest respect was manifested in this particular to his sacred person. Such then was the death the Son of God in our nature endured, for the redemption of his church and people! But who shall describe the soul agonies of Jesus? Here I stop short. It is the crucifixion of the body that I am now limited to, when speaking of the cross of Jesus. Over this view only, let the reader and writer for a moment pause, while listening to the call of the Holy Ghost by his servant the Baptist, "Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world!" (John 1:29)
Was there ever such an object proposed to the mind of contemplation as the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross? It should seem as if the Lord Jesus, thus stretched forth and thus lifted up, was inviting, with his arms extended and his heart bleeding, all his redeemed to come to him. Indeed, every part of his sacred body joined in giving the welcome. His arms spread to receive, his feet fixed to wait, and his head bowed down as if to kiss his people. Oh, for grace, with Paul, to determine "to know nothing among men, save Jesus Christ and him crucified!" And with the same holy indignation as he felt, against every thing that would check the ardour of his love, to cry out, "God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me and I unto the world!" (Galatians 6:14)

Paul as a Believing Man - What splendid visions of Christ there are in Paul's magnificent Christology! What captivating and enthralling glimpses he gives us sometimes into the third heavens! But we are immediately summoned back from all that to be crucified with Christ. And I am determined, he says, that so far as I am concerned you shall know nothing in this life, at any rate, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. It takes both Paul and Christ taken together to make up Christ crucified. Christ is apprehended, is accused, is condemned, and is crucified before God for Paul; and, then, Paul is crucified before God in, and along with, Christ. But now, he says, I am crucified with Christ: with Christ who loved me, and gave Himself for me. And once Paul's faith is in this way concentrated on the Cross of Christ: and once Paul is so identified with Christ crucified: everything in Paul's experience-past, present, and yet to come-all that only roots the deeper and the stronger Paul's faith in the Cross of Christ. The blasts of divine wrath that blew off the bleak sides of Sinai struck with such shocks against Paul's faith in Christ, that, like the trees on the wind-swept sides of the Tay, it became just by reason of that wind so rooted and grounded in Christ crucified, that however the rain might descend, and the floods come, and the winds blow and beat upon Paul's faith, it fell not, for it had struck its roots, with every new storm, deeper and deeper into the Cross of Christ. The only difference is that Paul always met that rising wrath with a faith in Christ crucified that has never been equalled. For I am crucified with Christ. 'He has been crucified already. Paul is crucified. Truly the law is magnified and made honourable in Paul's case! Ten thousand times more honourable than if it had never been broken, since the Divine Lawgiver Himself has satisfied the broken law, and has Himself been crucified for Paul's transgressions. Paul does not say that he once was, or that he had been, crucified with Christ, but that he is, at present, so crucified. That is as much as to say that as long as Paul has any sin left so long will Christ be crucified. Not only is Paul's past sin all collected up and laid on Christ crucified; but almost more all Paul's present sinfulness comes up upon his conscience only to find Paul dead to his conscience, and to his sinfulness too, so truly and so completely is he crucified with Christ. And that is because your mind and your conscience are both in the keeping of Christ crucified. A true believer's corruption of heart comes up into his consciousness not in order to produce there a bad conscience, but in order to find the believer crucified already for all that corruption with Christ. For myself, I could not live a day, nor any part of a day, were I not crucified with Christ. Come up beside me, my brethren! There is room in Christ crucified for us all. Learn to say, and then say it continually till you say it in your very dreams,-I am crucified with Christ! And then you will be able to work in peace, and to eat and drink in peace, and to go out and in in peace, and to lie down in peace, and rise up. "I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. For as God is my witness I feel with Paul that nothing and no one but God the Son, and God the Son crucified, could atone for my sin

Many of the followers of Judas and Simon in Galilee had been crucified (Josephus Ant. The term ‘Crucified’ comes to be a favourite one with the name of Jesus.

Peter in his great address on the day of Pentecost charges the Jews with having crucified Jesus (Acts 2:36). Paul speaks rather of ‘Christ crucified,’ more properly, ‘Christ as crucified’ (predicate), Χριστὸν ἐσταυρωμένον (1 Corinthians 1:23), and once he sharply accents the idea by saying Ἰησοῦν Χριστὸν καὶ τοῦτον ἑσταυρωμένον (1 Corinthians 2:2), in opposition to his Judaizing opponents. This was his method of openly setting forth (προεγράφη) Jesus as crucified (Galatians 3:1), like a public placard. Paul’s use of the term with the Lord of glory (1 Corinthians 2:8), and yet He was crucified in weakness (2 Corinthians 13:4). Revelation 11:8 merely identifies Jerusalem as the city where Jesus was crucified. ‘But we preach Christ crucified’ (1 Corinthians 1:23), says St. Paul preached, but Jesus as the crucified Saviour, who, and not Paul, was crucified ‘in your behalf’ (1 Corinthians 1:13).

There were several ways of crucifying; sometimes the criminal was fastened with cords to a tree, sometimes he was crucified with his head downwards. This way, it is said, Peter chose, out of respect to his master, Jesus Christ, not thinking himself worthy to be crucified like him; though the common way of crucifying was by fastening the criminal with nails, one through each hand, and one through both feet, or one through each of them; for this was not always performed in the same manner; the ancients sometimes represent Jesus Christ crucified with four nails, and sometimes with three. The thighs of the two thieves, who were crucified with our Saviour, were broken, in order to hasten their death, that their bodies might not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath day, John 19:31 ; John 19:33 ; and to comply with the law of Moses, which forbids the bodies to be left there after sun-set. The Roman soldiers, who had crucified Jesus Christ and the two thieves, continued near the crosses till the bodies were taken down and buried.

Galatians 3:13-14 ) and thereby serves not only to state the radical nature of Christ's humiliation, but by implication to judge the world and all its inhabitants as being "the despised" who must identify with a crucified messiah in order to receive God's salvation. He claims to have not come to them with eloquence or superior wisdom, but as one who resolves to know nothing except "Jesus Christ and him crucified. In 2:20 Paul speaks of being crucified with Christ, yet no longer living, but Christ lives in him, and the life he now lives in the body he lives by faith in the Son of God, who loved him and gave himself for him. Those who are compelling others to be circumcised are avoiding being persecuted "for the cross of Christ" (6:12), and Paul expressly declares that he will never boast in anything except "the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world" (v

the Penitent Thief - THE two malefactors who were crucified with Christ had been ringleaders in Barabbas's robber band. And had Barabbas himself not been pardoned by Pilate that morning, he also would have carried his cross out to Calvary that day and would have been crucified upon it. At the same time, it is as clear as daylight to me that this is not the first time that this crucified thief has seen our Lord. ...
And all this went on: our Lord finishing the work His Father had given Him to do, while Barabbas and his band were fast ripening for their cross; till, as God would have it, our Lord and Barabbas, with these two of his band, were all taken and tried, and were sentenced to be crucified all four on the same passover morning. And no wonder that they both cursed and blasphemed and raved and gnashed their teeth and spat upon their crucifiers, as all crucified men always did, so insupportable to absolute insanity was the awful torture of crucifixion. "Save Thyself and us!" the two crucified and maddened men both cried to Him; the one in fiendish ribaldry, and the other out of a heart in which heaven and hell were fighting with their last stroke for his soul.

the Last Supper - In John, Jesus was crucified on the day of preparation at the time when lambs were slaughtered (John 19:14 )
Kerygma - According to Paul, some see the preaching of a crucified Savior as foolish; but for those who believe it means eternal life (1 Corinthians 1:21 )

Cross - The Andrew's cross is shaped like an X, through Hippolytus says he was crucified upright. By a striking retribution in kind, the Jewish people, whose cry was "crucify Him," were crucified in such numbers by Titus "that there was not room enough for the crosses, nor crosses enough for their bodies" (Joseptius, B. Figuratively, the cross and crucifixion are used for spiritually mortifying the flesh, in union spiritually by faith with Christ crucified, not self-imposed austerities (Matthew 16:24; Philippians 3:18; Galatians 6:14; 1653217131_80)
Cross, Crucifixion - By the first century, however, it was used for any enemy of the state, though citizens could only be crucified by direct edict of Caesar. ” During the intertestamental period the western form was borrowed when Alexander Janneus crucified 800 Pharisees (76 B. ...
A person crucified in Jesus' day was first of all scourged (beaten with a whip consisting of thongs with pieces of metal or bone attached to the end) or at least flogged until the blood flowed. “Christ crucified” ( 1 Corinthians 1:23 ; compare 1 Corinthians 2:2 ; Galatians 3:1 ) is more than the basis of our salvation; the cross was the central event in history, the one moment which demonstrated God's control of and involvement in human history. Jesus as the lowly One achieved His glory by virtue of His suffering—only the crucified One could become the risen One (1 Corinthians 1:26-30 ). Such a message certainly was viewed as foolish in the first century; Roman historians like Tacitus and Suetonius looked upon the idea of a “crucified God” with contempt. ...
Closely connected to this is Paul's symbol of the crucified life
Simon - said that Simon was crucified instead of Jesus
Tammuz - Imitate Mary who, when all others were gone, stood at the crucified Lord's sepulchre weeping, and so had her tears dried up by the risen Saviour Himself (John 20:11-16)

Peter - He is said to have been crucified, and thus he followed his Lord literally in the mode of his death. Origen adds, however, that Peter, deeming himself unworthy to suffer death in the same manner as his Master, was at his own request crucified with his head downward
Crucified - Oh, for grace, with Paul, to determine "to know nothing among men, save Jesus Christ and him crucified!" And with the same holy indignation as he felt, against every thing that would check the ardour of his love, to cry out, "God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me and I unto the world!" (Galatians 6:14)...
Cross - ...
There is no mention made in ancient writers of any thing on which the feet of the person crucified rested. The crucified person remained suspended in this way till he died, and the corpse had become putrid. An exception, however, to this general practice was made by the Romans in favour of the Jews, on account of Deuteronomy 21:22-23 ; and in Judea, accordingly, crucified persons were buried on the same day. The degree of anguish is gradual in its increase; and the person crucified is able to live under it commonly till the third, and sometimes till the seventh, day
Japan - Christianity was proscribed, and in 1597 six missionaries and twenty converts were crucified
Mortify - By man, in his present state, spiritual life is realizable only through the slaying of sin; union with the crucified implies crucifixion of the passions and lusts (Galatians 5:24)
Serpent, Brazen - ...
(2) The brazen serpent lifted up on the pole so as to be visible with its bright brass (which also is typical: Revelation 1:15) to the remotest Israelite answers to Jesus "evidently set forth before the eyes, crucified" (Galatians 3:1), so that "all the ends of the earth" by "looking unto" Him may "be saved" (Isaiah 45:22), "lifted up from the earth," and so "drawing all men unto Him" (John 12:32-34)

Timotheus, Patriarch of Constantinople - Within a year of his accession Timotheus directed that the Ter Sanctus should be recited with the Monophysite addition of "Who wast crucified for us
Lucian - He scoffs at the notion of a crucified man having taught them to regard all mankind as their brethren, the moment they should have abjured the gods of Greece; as if it were not just the most remarkable part of all this, that an obscure person in Jerusalem, who was deserted by every one, and executed as a criminal, should be able, a good century after his death, to cause such effects as Lucian, in his own time, saw extending in all directions, and in spite of every kind of persecution. Their first lawgiver has persuaded them also to regard all mankind as their brethren, as soon as they have abjured the Grecian gods, and, honouring their crucified Master, have begun to live according to his laws
Linus (1) - Peter yields to his friends' entreaties and consents to leave Rome but at the gate he meets our Lord coming in Who on being asked whither He is going replies "To Rome in order to be crucified again.

Rome - ...
Real sites are the Colosseum and Nero's gardens in the Vatican near to Peter's; in them Christians wrapped in beasts' skins were torn by dogs, or clothed in inflammable stuffs were burnt as torches during the midnight games! Others were crucified (Tacitus, Annals xv
Robbery - ...
Emphatic statements respecting the prevalence of robbers during the stormy period preceding the fall of Jerusalem, and an account of the measures adopted by Felix in consequence, may be found in Josephus-‘as to the number of the robbers he caused to be crucified, and of those who were caught among them, and whom he brought to punishment, they were a multitude not to be enumerated’ (Bellum Judaicum (Josephus) II
Pontius Pilate - After declaring more than once that he found no fault in Him, and receiving the warning from his wife, and having the conversation with the Lord, which led to his seeking to release Him — yet to deliver Him up to be crucified at the mere clamour of the Lord's enemies, shows his extreme meanness of character and his unrighteousness
Philosophy - Though "foolishness to the Greek, Christ crucified is the wisdom of God" (1 Corinthians 1; 2)

Son of Man - ...
When the Jewish leaders finally understood Jesus’ usage of the title (namely, that he claimed to be both the Davidic Messiah and the supernatural heavenly Messiah of Daniel 7:13-14), they accused him of blasphemy and had him crucified (Mark 14:61-64). ...
If, however, the crucified Son of man was to receive an eternal kingdom, his death had to be followed by resurrection (Mark 9:31; Mark 10:33-34)
Self-Surrender - Paul’s profound words: ‘I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I that live, but Christ liveth in me’ ( Galatians 2:20 )

Pilate - Therefore, to satisfy the Jews and protect his own interests, he crucified the man he knew to be innocent, and released the man he knew to be a murderer (John 19:12; John 19:16; Luke 23:24-25)
Humiliation of Christ - In his death, scourged, crowned with thorns, received gall and vinegar to drink, and was crucified between two thieves, Luke 23:1-56 : John 19:1-42 : Mark 15:24-25
Emperor Worship - Many did not and were burned alive, killed by lions in the arena, or crucified
Accursed - ...
According to the idiom of the Hebrew language, accursed and crucified were synonymous terms
Thieves - The two crucified with Jesus were probably such: the taunt of the one, "if Thou be Christ, save Thyself and us," implies sympathy with the Jews' fanatical zeal for national and individual deliverance from Roman rule: they probably were among Barabbas' fellow insurgents, and were doomed to die with him; but he was released, and they were left to their fate. ...
The place on Christ's right hand in the kingdom, desired by Zebedee's sons, was reserved for the penitent thief, first in the kingdom of suffering, then in the kingdom of glory, His case proves that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law, yet not by a dead faith, for his faith evidenced its vitality by confession of sin and of Christ crucified, by faithful reproof of the scorner if haply he too might be led to repent, by humility, and by hope in the Saviour looking beyond present pain to the eternal state; also that baptism is only "generally "necessary to salvation, a baptized man may be lost and an unbaptized man may be saved; the baptism of blood supplied the place of the outward sign of regeneration (Hilary, de Trin
Legs - Crurifragium formed no part of crucifixion itself, but was perhaps usually added in Judaea to secure a speedy death, as otherwise those crucified might linger for several days (cf. ...
Jesus being crucified ‘in the midst,’ the soldiers would naturally begin with the robbers who were on either side, and so come last to Him
Andrew - Eusebius makes him after Christ's ascension preach in Scythia; Jerome, in Greece; where tradition makes him to have been crucified on a crux decussata , an X-shaped cross
Simon Peter - He died a martyr's death at Rome during the persecution of Nero by being crucified head downwards, according to legend
Docetism - 24) Christ or Nous is not distinguished from Jesus but is said to be an incorporeal power who transfigured Himself as He willed; that He appeared on earth as man and worked miracles but that He did not suffer; that it was Simon of Cyrene who being transfigured into the form of Jesus was crucified while Jesus Himself in the form of Simon standing by laughed at His persecutors and then incapable of being held by them ascended up to Him Who had sent Him invisible to them all. In these the writer emphasises the statements that our Lord was truly born did eat and drink was truly persecuted under Pontius Pilate was truly crucified and truly rose from the dead; and he expressly declares that these statements were made in contradiction of the doctrine of certain unbelievers or rather atheists who asserted His sufferings to be but seeming. In this work, which Grabe seems to have correctly regarded as Marcionite, it was taught that the Son was not man, but only seemed to be so; that He shewed Himself to His disciples sometimes young, sometimes old; sometimes a child, sometimes an old man; sometimes great, sometimes small; sometimes so great as to touch the heavens with His head; that His footsteps left no trace; and that He was not really crucified, but, according to Photius, another person in His place. John on the mount of Olives, at the time of the crucifixion, teaches that the form crucified was not really our Lord, but does not suggest that it was any other person
Offense - Paul says in 1 Corinthians 1:23 : "We preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block (scandalon [1]) to the Jews and foolishness to Gentiles" (NRSV)
Soldiers - After the trial before Pilate, when our Lord had been scourged and condemned to be crucified, Pilate’s soldiers on duty took Him into their own quarters, and, gathering the whole band together, proceeded to treat Him with the grossest insults and mockery (Matthew 27:27, Mark 15:16, John 19:2)
Gibeonites - The "water dropping upon them (the hanged or crucified seven) out of heaven" marked the cessation of the heaven sent drought and the point of time when the bodies might be taken down from the stakes and buried
Felix - ...
Felix crushed the Jewish zealots under the name of "robbers," and crucified hundreds
Cross - It was Christ crucified whom the apostles preached; the divine Redeemer stooping so low as to endure this shocking death, in order to make a sufficient sacrifice, satisfaction, and oblation, for the sins of the world
Judah, the Kingdom of - They were the people to whom the Messiah was presented, and who refused and crucified Him
Simeon (1) - Finally he was ordered to be crucified (Eus
Death of Christ - Paul could say to the Corinthian Christians, "I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified" (1 Corinthians 2:2 ). To the Galations he says, "before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified" (Galatians 3:1 ). In this preaching the human responsibility for the death of Christ is laid at the door of the Jews who handed him over to be crucified and of Pilate who condemned him to death, but it is also made clear that it was in fulfillment of the purpose of God expressed in the Scriptures (3:18). When, immediately prior to his being handed over by Pilate to be crucified (19:11), Jesus said that Pilate would have no power to crucify him "if it were not given from above, " he was not just speaking of political power being delegated by God (in the sense of Romans 13 ), but rather that Pilate was just doing what was being brought about according to the will and authority of God. "I have been crucified with Christ" says Paul (Galatians 2:20 ); the things of the old life are put to death (Colossians 3:5-8 ; cf. It is also a death to self: "he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again" (2 Corinthians 5:15 ); and it is a death to the world, as the apostle says, "May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world" (Galatians 6:14 ). Life, as long as it lasts on earth, is to be lived to the praise of the crucified and risen Lord, and the praise of heaven is of "the Lamb who was slain" as "worthyto receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and praise" (Revelation 5:12 )
Galatians, Epistle to the - With Christ he was crucified (was judicially dead); yet he lived, but no longer himself, for Christ lived in him, and his life as still in this world was by faith — the faith of the Son of God, a living object whose love filled his soul. Those that were of Christ had crucified the flesh with its lusts, the Spirit being the only power for christian walk. But the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ was his only boast, through whom the world was crucified unto him, and he to it
New Self - Paul states in Romans that "our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin" (6:6)
Ignorant, Ignorance - Peter, while not exonerating those who crucified Jesus, does seem to attenuate the guilt somewhat, noting that they "acted in ignorance" (Acts 3:17 )
Gospel - For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified
Alexander And Rufus - ’ From this we gather that, when the Second Gospel was written, the sons of him who bore the cross were followers of the crucified, and men of prominence and note in the Church
Philosopher, Philosophy - Then as to the gospel, the Greeks sought after wisdom, and to preach Christ crucified was foolishness to them
Gibeon - " The Gibeonites crucified them
Water Watering, Waterless - On the contrary, He who was baptized and He who was crucified was the Son of God throughout in His combined Deity and humanity
Thaddaeus - 283), Thaddæus, ‘who is Lebbæus and Judas,’ is distinguished from ‘Judas of James,’ and is said to have preached at Edessa, to have been buried in Egypt, and to have been crucified
Lord's Day - ...
On the day before Saturday they crucified Him; on the day after Saturday, Sunday, having appeared to His apostles He taught
Heifer, Red - As the heifer was east "without the camp," so Christ was cut off from fellowship with the representatives of the theocracy, and crucified between two thieves outside of Jerusalem (Hebrews 13:11-12)
Arden - ...
He is crucified afresh
Peter - The Lord had intimated to him that he would die the death of a martyr (John 21:19 ), and historians relate that he was crucified, and with his head downward by his own request: they also state that his wife died with him
Cross - The legs of the two thieves were broken, to hasten their death, but their bodies might not remain on the cross on the Sabbath say, Deuteronomy 21:23 Joshua 8:29 ; but the crucified were usually left hanging, under the eye of guards, till their bodies fell to the ground, or were devoured by birds and beasts of prey
Condemn - The law court context is seen in Jesus' prediction of His coming trial in Jerusalem (Matthew 20:18 ), in a remark of one of the men crucified with Jesus (Luke 23:40 ), and in the final vote of the Sanhedrin (Mark 14:64 )
Messiah - ...
The idea of a crucified Messiah was contrary to common Jewish beliefs. The Jews considered the Messiah as blessed by God above all others, whereas a crucified person was cursed by God (Galatians 3:13). That is why the Christians’ belief in a crucified Jesus as the Saviour-Messiah was a stumbling block to the Jews (see STUMBLING BLOCK)
Crucifixion - It was a custom in Jerusalem to provide some alleviation for the physical tortures and mental sufferings of the crucified by giving him a stupefying draught. But, as the day following our Lord’s crucifixion was not only a Sabbath, but the Sabbath of Passover week, Pilate was persuaded to give orders that Jesus and the two robbers crucified along with Him should be despatched by the crurifragium and their bodies removed ( John 19:31 )
Legalism - Acceptance by God is possible only through faith in Christ crucified (Romans 8:3 ; Galatians 2:16 ; 3:13-14 ). As holding out the hope of salvation on the basis of human effort, such works are the antithesis of God's saving grace set forth in Christ crucified
Son of Man - The great and final synthesis-the Suffering Servant and the Eternal Judge-had received its justification in the alleged exaltation of the crucified to the right hand of God. On being asked concerning Jesus who was crucified, he answered in a loud voice, ‘Why do ye ask me about Jesus the Son of Man? He is now sitting in the heavens, on the right hand of the great Power, and is about to come on the clouds of heaven’ (Historia Ecclesiastica (Eusebius, etc
Cerinthians - Believing Jesus to be a phantom, they did not believe that he was crucified; and they could not therefore believe that he had risen. But Cerinthus, who held that Jesus was born, like other human beings, found no difficulty in believing literally that he was crucified; and he is said also to have taught that he would rise from the dead at some future period
pe'Ter - All agree that he was crucified. Origen says that Peter felt himself to be unworthy to be put to death in the same manner as his Master, and was therefore, at his own request, crucified with his head downward
Son of Man - The great and final synthesis-the Suffering Servant and the Eternal Judge-had received its justification in the alleged exaltation of the crucified to the right hand of God. On being asked concerning Jesus who was crucified, he answered in a loud voice, ‘Why do ye ask me about Jesus the Son of Man? He is now sitting in the heavens, on the right hand of the great Power, and is about to come on the clouds of heaven’ (Historia Ecclesiastica (Eusebius, etc
World - This world is evil ( Galatians 1:4 ), its wisdom is naught ( 1Co 1:20 ; 1 Corinthians 2:6 ; 1 Corinthians 3:18 ), its rulers crucified the Lord of glory ( 1 Corinthians 2:8 ); finally, it is the ‘god of this world’ that has blinded the minds of the unhelieving ( 2 Corinthians 4:4 ). Galatians 4:9 ); through Christ the world is crucified to him and he to the world ( Galatians 6:14 ). Paul condemns, then, is hardly the world as essentially evil, but the world-spirit which leads to evil by its neglect of the unseen and eternal, and by its blindness to the true scale of values revealed in the gospel of Christ crucified
Darkness - Farther, the Christian writers, in their most ancient apologies to the heathens, affirm that as it was full moon, at the passover when Christ was crucified, no such eclipse could happen by the course of nature
Sepulchre - "...
Indeed as a confirmation to this, it is well known that the emperor Adrian, the bitter enemy of Christianity, in contempt to Christ, caused an image of heathenish idolatry to be erected in those hallowed spots where Jesus was born, and another where he was crucified, and a third at his speulchre
Palace - To add to the 'offense of the cross' the crucified one is represented with the head of an animal, probably that of an ass
Alexander the Great - As to his cruelty let one instance suffice: at the capture of Tyre which then belonged to Persia, provoked by the long resistance and valiant defence, 8,000 of the inhabitants were massacred, 2,000 being crucified: of the rest, except those who escaped by sea, 30,000 were sold into slavery, the king and the chief magistrates were spared, doubtless as trophies
Praetorium - When the soldiers were weary of the mocking, they led Jesus away again to be crucified
Praetorium - When the soldiers were weary of the mocking, they led Jesus away again to be crucified
Praxeas, a Heretic - He put to flight the Paraclete and he crucified the Father
Crucifixion - Two brigands had been crucified with Him, two of those outlaws who infested the steep road from Jericho to Jerusalem, and by their deeds of violence gave it the grim name of ‘the Ascent of Blood’ (cf. Since it was expected that the Messiah would be a glorious and victorious King, it seemed incredible that one who was slain, and not only slain but crucified, should be the Messiah. ...
It is remarkable that, unlike the mediaeval artists, who loved to depict the Man of Sorrows as He hung on the cross abused and bleeding, the Evangelists have drawn a veil over the scene, detailing none of the ghastly particulars, and saying merely: ‘They crucified him. A crucified Messiah was ‘to Jews a stumbliog-block and to Gentiles foolishness’ (1 Corinthians 1:23); and the Apostles, eager to remove ‘the stumbling-block of the Cross,’ represented the Crucifixion as no ignominious catastrophe, but ‘a link in a chain of higher knowledge, part of a Divine plan of salvation
Paul as a Preacher - And thus it was that in Paul's preaching there were always present those two luminously self-evident subjects, Paul's sin and Christ's cross: Paul the chief of sinners, and Jesus Christ and Him crucified. As often as seventy times seven, every mortal day of mine, the amazement and the misery of my sinfulness overwhelms me, Paul no sooner sets forth to me Jesus Christ and Him crucified, than a great light falls on my amazement, and a great alleviation on my misery. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me
Spirit - " Those who are influenced by this Spirit "have crucified the flesh, with its affections and lusts," Galatians 5:16-25
Cross - In the case of Jesus they did not even ask for him to be stoned when they saw it would be easier to have him crucified (Matthew 27:22-23)
Lord - Thus the crucified One will experience an act of homage like that due God Himself (Isaiah 45:23-24 ). Such calling must be accompanied by actions which correspond to the teachings of the resurrected, crucified One and to His example ( Matthew 7:21-22 ; John 13:14-15 ). ...
How can humans be convinced that the crucified Jesus from Nazareth is the Lord—that is, that in Him God acted in the way that the Bible says and in the way that the world needs? How can people be convinced that He is the Messiah of Israel and the Lord of all people, who comes near to all people as Friend and Brother? How does the Lord of the cosmos become our personal Lord in His church? This happens through the Holy Spirit
Martyr - The victims were crucified, or, by a diabolical refinement of cruelty, clad in the skins of beasts to serve as the quarry of dogs. Peter was crucified, and Origen (ap. After many days of torture he was crucified
Revelation, the Book of - ...
To encourage Christian faithfulness, the Revelation points to the glorious world to come (a world of “no more death or mourning or crying or pain,” Revelation 21:4 NIV; compare Revelation 7:16 ) at the reappearing of the crucified and risen Jesus. The Sovereignty of the Creator God Committed to the crucified and Now Enthroned Lamb (Revelation 4:1-5:14 )...
V. ” The theme of John's work is clear: the Lord God Himself has guaranteed the final vindication of the crucified Jesus before all the earth (Revelation 1:7-8 ). ...
The Sovereignty of the Creator God Committed to the crucified and Now Enthroned Lamb (4:1–5:14) Revelation 4:1 and Revelation 5:1 represent the pivot point of the book, tying the risen Lord's opening exhortations to the churches ( Revelation 2-3 ) to the judgments and final triumph of the Lamb (Revelation 6-22 ). Instead of an unidentified human figure, we learn that the exalted agent of God is none other than the crucified Jesus, the Lamb and Lion of God, now enthroned and therefore worthy to take the book and break the seals
Peter - Peter conversely, by shrinking from a crucified Saviour and dissuading Him from the cross, "be it far from Thee," identified Himself with Satan who tempted Jesus to take the world kingdom without the cross (Acts 4:13,), and is therefore called "Satan," cf6 "get thee behind Me, Satan," etc. Ecclesiastes, 1) makes Peter bishop of Antioch, then to have preached in Pontus (from 1 Peter 1:1), then to have gone to Rome to refute Simon Magus (from Justin's story of a statue found at Rome to Semosanctus, the Sabine Hercules, which was confounded with Simon Magus), and to have been bishop there for 25 years (!) and to have been crucified with head downward, declaring himself unworthy to be crucified as his Lord, and buried in the Vatican near the triumphal way. ...
He may have been at the very end of life at Rome after Paul's death, and been imprisoned in the Mamertine dungeon, crucified on the Janiculum on the height Pietro in Montorio, and buried where the altar in Peter's now is. 33) says that at his fellow Christians' solicitation he was fleeing from Rome at early dawn, when he met the Lord, and at His feet asked "Lord, where goest Thou?" His reply "I go to be crucified afresh" turned Peter back to a joyful martyrdom
Body - Jesus Christ had a physical, earthly body which was crucified in front of the gates of Jerusalem (Mark 15:20-47 ; Colossians 1:22 ; Hebrews 13:11-12 ). The body of Christ also designates the body of the crucified One “given for you,” with which the church is united together in the celebration of the Lord's Supper (Mark 14:24 ; 1 Corinthians 10:16 ; 1 Corinthians 11:24 )
Persecution - Examples in the New Testament include John the Baptist, who spoke out against the adultery of Herod Antipas and was beheaded (Mark 6:21-29 ); Stephen, the deacon, who, preaching the gospel before the Sanhedrin and proclaiming God's judgment because of the sins of the people, was rejected and stoned (Acts 6:5 ; 7:1-60 ); Paul, who was persecuted, beaten, and imprisoned as he preached from place to place, and was finally killed in Rome (2 Timothy 4:6-8 ); and climactically, Jesus himself who preached God's grace and judgment (Matthew 4:17 ; 11:28-29 ), was persecuted by his hearers (Luke 4:28-30 ), plotted against by his adversaries (Mark 3:6 ), rejected (Luke 13:34 ; John 6:66 ), tried (John 18:12-40 ), and finally crucified (John 19:16-37 ; Philippians 2:9 ). Jesus and his disciples were, are, and will be, subject to ridicule/insult: Jesus, "despised and rejected of men" (Isaiah 53:3 ; Matthew 27:39 ; 1 Peter 2:23 ) and finally crucified (John 19:16-18 ); his disciples, insulted (Matthew 5:11 ), jeered (Hebrews 11:36 ), mistreated (v
Judas the Galilaean - Of these, two-Jacob and Simon-were crucified by Tiberius Alexander the procurator (a
Persecution in the Bible - For Paul, persecuting Christians could be a living and visible testimony to the crucified and risen Christ (2 Corinthians 4:7-12 )
Necessity - It was ordained that Christ should be delivered up to death; but he could not have been betrayed without a betrayer, nor crucified without crucifiers
Caesarea - Paul may have passed through Cæsarea ( Acts 18:22 ) at the time when numbers of Jewish patriots, captured by Cumanus, had here been crucified by Quadratus, legate of Syria
Sleep - Fourth, believers are never said to have fallen asleep in the death of Jesus; rather, we died with him (Colossians 2:20 ; 2 Timothy 2:11 ) or were crucified with him (Galatians 2:20 )
Martyr - Of this we have an instance in the answer of the church of Smyrna to the suggestion of the Jews, who, at the martyrdom of Polycarp, desired the heathen judge not to suffer the Christians to carry off his body, lest they should leave their crucified master, and worship him in his stead
Calvary - It was a small eminence or hill to the north of Mount Sion, and to the west of old Jerusalem, upon which our Lord was crucified
Cry, Crying - , instead of kraugazo); of the shouts of the children in the Temple, Matthew 21:15 ; of the people who shouted for Christ to be crucified, Matthew 27:23 ; Mark 15:13,14 ; of the "cry" of Christ on the Cross at the close of His sufferings, Matthew 27:50 ; Mark 15:39 (see No
Mourning - Possibly, however, the words indicate that now all nations recognized that the ignominiously crucified One was worthy of a world’s mourning
Gibeon - ) and the five sons of Michal, and these the Gibeonites took and hanged or crucified "in the hill before the Lord" (2 Samuel 21:9 ); and there the bodies hung for six months (21:10), and all the while Rizpah watched over the blackening corpses and "suffered neither the birds of the air to rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field by night
Mediator - 2; Hurrion's Christ crucified, p
Jesus Christ - Could the whole human race, of all ages, kindreds, and tongues, be assembled to see the crucified Redeemer as he is, and compare earth's noblest benefactors with Him, there would be but one voice among them
Renunciation - ‘The world is crucified to me and I to the world’ (Galatians 6:14). For Christians in general his language is more restricted but not substantially different: ‘they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh’ (Galatians 5:24)
Mediation Mediator - Peter does not here formulate a doctrine of the Atonement nor specifically mention the mediatorial work of Jesus, but he calls upon all the house of Israel to understand ‘that God hath made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom ye crucified’ (Acts 2:36). ‘We preach Christ crucified’ (1 Corinthians 1:23). ‘For I determined to know nothing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified’ (1 Corinthians 2:2)
Hormisdas, Bishop of Rome - On the other hand "God was crucified" had been a favourite Monophysite formula, used to emphasize their doctrine of the absorption of the human nature into the divine; and great offence had formerly been given to the orthodox by the addition of "Who wast crucified for us" to the Trisagion by Peter Fullo. We anathematize Nestorius the man-worshipper, and those who think with him, who deny that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God and our God, Incarnate, made man, and crucified, was One of the holy consubstantial Trinity" ( Lex Justinian
Mephibosheth - Saul's son by Rizpah (2 Samuel 21:8); "crucified" (yaqah ; not talah , which would mean "hanged up") with six others before Jehovah by the Gibeonites to avert the famine; from barley harvest until the rains of October the bodies remained exposed to the sun (compare Numbers 25:4), but watched by Rizpah's pious care, and finally were committed to Kish's sepulchre
Thirst - The intensity of His suffering is attested by the unwonted interference of one of the soldier-guards, who, out of compassion for the crucified, attempted to allay His anguish
Preaching in the Bible - This proclamation of God's revelation functions as God's chosen instrument for bringing us to salvation by grace, although its message of a crucified Messiah seems to be foolishness to people of worldly wisdom and a scandalous offense to Jews (1 Corinthians 1:21-23 )
Fool - In the judgment of the critical Greek intellectualists, the preaching of ‘Christ crucified’ was folly (1 Corinthians 1:18; 1 Corinthians 1:21; 1 Corinthians 1:23; 1 Corinthians 1:25)
Petrus, Surnamed Fullo - When established as patriarch, Peter at once declared himself openly against the council of Chalcedon, and added to the Trisagion the words "Who wast crucified for us," which he imposed as a test upon all in his patriarchate, anathematizing those who declined to accept it
Atonement (2) - This fact, reinforced by successive appearances of the risen Christ whether to individuals or the assembled disciples, led to the further conviction, the ultimate root of the doctrine of the Atonement, that Jesus of Nazareth, crucified, risen, ascended, was present in the midst of the Christian congregation. Paul called ‘Christ crucified’ (1 Corinthians 1:23, cf. And the Epistle to the Romans, which elaborates the great argument of Justification through a crucified and risen Saviour, is central to the theology of St. And the taunt of the rulers on Calvary, when the crucified Jesus is bidden to prove Himself the Christ of God, the chosen (Luke 23:35 ὁ ἐκλεκτός), makes it clear that the claim to be at once the Messiah and the Servant, if doubted by the disciples and derided by the Jews, was at least in the hour of its accomplishment sufficiently understood
Marks Stigmata - ...
In the ‘Age of Faith,’ in reality the ‘Dark Age,’ many believed that the body of the Apostle bore marks resembling the wound-prints on the body of the crucified Jesus. Pathological facts probably gave rise to the belief that the stigmata of the crucified body of Jesus were seen upon some of His followers
Thomas - The unbelief of Thomas drew forth such an infallible proof of the identity between the crucified and the risen Lord that he who any longer disbelieves and is consequently condemned is left without excuse
Type - ...
ISAAC offered up and received as from the dead — type of Christ as crucified and raised again
Joseph - But our Joseph was not only sold for thirty pieces of silver, but at length crucified and slain, and from the grave which he made with the wicked and with the rich in his death, by his resurrection and ascension, at the right hand of power, he is become the universal and eternal Governor both of heaven and earth
Jesus Christ - This conflict saw Him crucified, but a Roman soldier saw in this crucified One (the) Son of God (Mark 15:39 )
Apocrypha - Third, they glorify martyrdom, especially among the apostles: Andrew is crucified, Paul is beheaded, Peter is crucified upside down, and Thomas is executed with spears; only John is spared a martyr's death
Peter - Suffice it to mention that he is said to have gone to Rome [6] and laboured there for 25 years [7], and to have been crucified (cf. 68); being at his own request nailed to the cross head downwards, since he deemed himself unworthy to be crucified in the same manner as his Lord
Lucianus, a Famous Satirist - Their leader, whom they yet adore, was crucified in Palestine for introducing this new sect. They despised death, therefore, and offered up their lives a voluntary sacrifice, being taught by their lawgiver that they were all brethren, and that, quitting our Grecian gods, they must worship their own sophist, who was crucified, and live in obedience to his laws
Judging (by Men) - Paul had determined (κεκρικει) to sail past Ephesus (Acts 20:16); he determined (ἕκρινα) not to know anything among the Corinthians save Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2); not to come to them in sorrow (2 Corinthians 2:1)
Son of Man - Stephen's assertion stirred their rage, that Jesus who had been crucified for claiming to be "the Son of God" stands at God's right hand as being "the Son of man
Seventy Weeks of Daniel - 4, and was crucified A
Break, Breaker, Breaking, Brake - 6, is used of the "breaking" of a bruised reed, Matthew 12:20 , and of the "breaking" of the legs of those who were crucified, John 19:31,32,33
Preaching - But it was in Corinth that he opposed his central theme of ‘Christ crucified’ to the impurity, commercialism, and superstitions of the city (1 Corinthians 1:22; 1 Corinthians 2:2). ‘We preach’ (κηρύσσομεν), he says, ‘a Messiah crucified’ (1 Corinthians 1:23). ‘I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified’ (1 Corinthians 2:2)
Seven Words, the - crucified with them, in the same condemnation, is the pure and holy Jesus, who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth. Intense thirst was usually the most intolerable part of the suffering of those who were crucified, and He had been hanging there for six long hours, His open wounds scorched by the blazing sun
Salvation - Peter's certainty of this relation between "Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified" and the "God [who raised him]'>[2] from the dead" moves him to the exclusive confession that salvation belongs only to the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:10-12 ). It is therefore "Christ crucified" that is of central importance for salvation (1 Corinthians 1:23 ), for "Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:3 ) and was handed to death for our trespasses (Romans 4:25 )
Lord's Supper, the - Then he was crucified on Friday. However, it has been argued that since John's Gospel affirms that Jesus was crucified on the afternoon of Nisan 14, when the paschal lambs were being sacrificed in the temple (18:28), the Last Supper was a pre-Passover meal the night before—at the beginning of Nisan 14
Jerusalem - On Fridays and feast days they assemble in numbers; they kiss the stones and weep, and pray for the restoration of their city and temple, being, alas, still blind to the only true way of blessing through the Lord Jesus whom they crucified. Of these arbitrary identifications the one that appears the most improbable is that of the CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE, said to cover the spots where the Lord was crucified and where He was buried, which is within the city
Burial - So Joseph of Arimathea could not have done a greater honor to our crucified Lord's body than giving it a place in his own new tomb, fulfilling the prophecy Isaiah 53:9 (John 19:31-42)
Gentiles - Though Jesus was crucified by Gentiles (Matthew 20:19 ), equal blame is placed on both Gentiles and Jews (Acts 4:27 )
Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit - Hence, we find Paul's preaching of Christ crucified being repudiated; this would appear to be "blasphemy against the Spirit" as well (Acts 13:8,45 ; 14:2 ; 18:6 ; 19:13-16 )
Kerygma - Verse 23 combines the cognate verb (kerysso [1]) with the primary content of the kerygma by saying, "We preach Christ crucified
Smyrna - It was ‘at the suggestion and urgent persuasion of the Jews’ that the body of the martyr was refused to the Christians, ‘lest, forsaking Him that was crucified, they should begin to worship this one’ (Mart
Honesty - His merciful words to one of the malefactors crucified with Him (Luke 23:43) cannot be taken as throwing light on His views of dishonesty and its pardonableness, because the man was probably a brigand insurgent and a follower of Barabbas, not a mere thief
Certainty (2) - ’...
The following are instances from the Gospels of this way of expressing certainty:—‘Fear ye not, for I am certain that ye are seeking Jesus who was crucified’ (Matthew 28:5); ‘Master, we are certain that thou speakest and teachest straightforwardly’ (Luke 20:21); ‘We speak what we are certain of, and bear evidence of what we have seen’ (John 3:11); ‘No longer do we believe through thy report, for we ourselves have heard and are certain’ (John 4:42); ‘What sign doeat thou that we may feel certainty, and may trust thee?’ (John 6:30); ‘This is Jesus the son of Joseph; we are certain of his father and mother’ (John 6:42, cf
Felix Iii, Bishop of Rome - He had added to the Tersanctus the clause, "Who wast crucified for us," and was charged with thus attributing passibility to the Godhead
Ascension - An eternal character is thus given to the sacrifice of the death of Christ, which becomes efficacious through the exaltation of His crucified and risen manhood ( Hebrews 10:11-14 ; Hebrews 10:19-22 )
Print - They prove the reality of the Resurrection body, and its continuity with that body which was crucified; though Christ glorified was in many respects changed, yet He was essentially the same who suffered, seeing that the prints could become visibly present to Thomas and the others
Mockery - It is also very improbable that a victim was actually crucified in the character of Haman by the Jews. There is a resemblance in the clothing with royal robes, in the stripping, the scourging, and the death, but there is no resemblance to the royal privileges accorded to the condemned prisoner, and it is also not clear that the victim was crucified
Apocrypha, New Testament - Pilate gives in to popular demand and hands Jesus over to be crucified. Peter, who is forced to flee, later returns to be crucified upside down
Medes - Darius Hystaspes crushed the rebellion with difficulty, and crucified and mutilated Phraortes
Mark, Gospel of - He was arrested (14:43-52), taken to the high priest’s house (14:53-72), brought before Pilate (15:1-20), taken away and crucified (15:21-47)
Lamb, Lamb of God - Christ, the crucified Son of God, however, remains at the heart of Paul's gospel
World - Paul expresses his indifference to the world by saying he "is crucified" as far as the world is concerned (Galatians 6:14 )
Foreknowledge - Peter, in addressing the Jewish multitudes on the day of Pentecost, describes them as having by the hand of lawless men crucified and slain Jesus of Nazareth, he speaks of Him as ‘delivered up by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God’ (Acts 2:23)
Heaven - For that God resides in a particular part of the universe, where he makes his presence known to his intelligent creatures by some transcendent, visible glory, is an opinion that has prevailed among Jews and Christians, Greeks and Romans, yea, in every nation, civilized or savage, and in every age; and, since it is confirmed by revelation, why should it be doubted? Into this most holy place, the habitation of the Deity, Jesus, after his resurrection, ascended; and there, presenting his crucified body before the manifestation of the divine presence, which is called "the throne of the Majesty in the heavens," he offered unto God the sacrifice of himself, and made atonement for the sins of his people
Clothing, Cloths, Clothes, Cloke, Coat - ...
When the soldiers had crucified Jesus they took His garments (himation, in the plural), His outer garments, and the "coat," the chiton, the inner garment, which was without seam, woven from the top throughout, John 19:23
Man - ...
(h) in the expressions "the old man," "the new man," which are confined to Paul's Epistles, the former standing for the unregenerate nature personified as the former self of a believer, which, haveing been crucified with Christ, Romans 6:6 , is to be apprehended practically as such, and to be "put off," Ephesians 4:22 ; Colossians 3:9 , being the source and seat of sin; the latter, "the new man," standing for the new nature personified as the believer's regenerate self, a nature "created in righteousness and holiness of truth," Ephesians 4:24 , and having been "put on" at regeneration, Colossians 3:10 ; being "renewed after the image of Him that created him," it is to be "put on" in pratical apprehension of these facts
Nicodemus - Whether it expressed faith in the Messiahship of the crucified, ‘the Saviour typified by the brazen serpent which Jesus had explained to him beforehand (John 3:14)’ (Godet), is less certain
Luke, Gospel of - He was brought before the Jewish leaders (22:54-71), then before the Roman governor (23:1-25), and afterwards taken outside the city and crucified (23:26-56)
Golgotha - —The name of the place where Jesus was crucified. According to this view, the soldiers, instead of taking their prisoner across the city towards the west, or out in the direction of the Roman road, hurried Him through the nearest gate and crucified Him near the road leading to Bethany. On what grounds did he select this as the true site of the Crucifixion? Those who still believe it to be the true site generally assume not only that the early Christians at Jerusalem had a knowledge of the places where the Lord was crucified and buried, but also that this knowledge was handed down as a reliable tradition through three hundred years, notwithstanding the utter demolition of Jerusalem by Titus and again by Hadrian, and the altering of the whole aspect of the city by the latter when he rebuilt it as a Roman colony and changed its name to Aelia Capitolina
Wisdom - ...
The Apostle’s experience in Athens (Acts 17:16-34) had not encouraged him to meet philosophers on their own ground, and, when he came to Corinth, it was with the deliberate purpose of not commending his message by the devices of rhetorical display, or the arguments of philosophy-‘I came not with any striking rhetorical or philosophical display, for I determined not to know anything among you save Jesus Christ, and him crucified’ (1 Corinthians 2:1-2). Paul perceived that by the abstractions of Greek philosophy the gospel would be emptied (κενοῦν) of its significance and power, and his answer to this was: ‘We preach Christ’-not a system, but a Person-and Christ as crucified. Thus he appropriates for the crucified the ‘power’ and ‘wisdom’ of God, terms which were recognized ‘synonyms of the Λόγος in the Alexandrian-Jewish speculations’ (EGT , in loc
Last Supper - ]'>[1] that the trend of opinion at first was towards the view that Christ was crucified on the 14th day of the Jewish month Nisan, and therefore on the day on which the Paschal lamb was killed; from which it follows that the Last Supper (whatever was its nature) preceded the Jewish Passover by several hours. the view that our Lord kept the Passover with the Jews on the 14th, and was crucified on the 15th, began to come into favour. ]'>[1] the following day, when Jesus was crucified, was the preparation of the Passover (John 19:14)
Confession - 9): ‘Be ye deaf therefore, when any man speaketh to you apart from Jesus Christ, who was of the race of David, who was the Son of Mary, who was truly born and ate and drank, was truly persecuted under Pontius Pilate, was truly crucified and died in the sight of those in heaven, and those on earth, and those under the earth; who moreover was truly raised from the dead, His Father having raised Him, who in the like fashion will so raise us also who believe on Him-His Father, I say, will raise us,-in Christ Jesus, apart from whom we have not true life. ’ This is much less like the earliest forms of developed creed both in East and West than Harnack’s more famous reconstruction of ‘our oldest creed,’ which he was careful to explain ‘is not a creed that was ever used or ever likely to be used’: ‘I believe in (one) God Almighty, in Christ Jesus, His Son, our Lord, who was born of a Virgin, under Pontius Pilate suffered (crucified), and rose again (from the dead), sat on the right hand of God, whence He is coming (in glory) to judge living and dead, and in the Holy Ghost
Shimei - He is such a thorn in your pillow, and such a crook in your lot, and such a cross on which you are crucified, and are to be crucified, every day you live
Son of God - For this they accused him of blasphemy and in the end crucified him (Matthew 26:63-66; Matthew 27:42-43; John 5:18; John 10:33; John 10:36; John 19:7)
Matthew, Gospel of - After the Last Supper in Jerusalem and a time of prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane (26:20-46), he was arrested, condemned by the Jewish Council, handed over to the Roman governor and crucified (26:47-27:66)
Son of God - Deniers of Jesus' Godhead on the plea of God's unity copy the Jews, who crucified Him because of His claim to be God
Manes, Called Also Mani - According to some he was crucified, according to others cut in two or flayed alive (Hyde, Rel
Petrus, Saint, Archbaptist of Alexandria - Thus Stephen and James were arrested; so was Peter who "was finally crucified in Rome"; so Paul who was beheaded in the same city
Christ in Mohammedan Literature - ” Yet they slew him not, and they crucified him not, but they had only his likeness … they did not really slay him, but God took him up to Himself’ (v. The Jews, thinking he was Jesus, quickly killed him, and he was crucified, though he protested that he was not Jesus, but the man who had betrayed him. Then the Jews said: ‘Thou art Jesus,’ and crucified him. ’ The prisoners said Jesus had gone on high; but the Jews saw one like Jesus and crucified him
Coming to Christ - In the rest of the NT the call is to the crucified and ascended Christ. They are the central truths of the Pauline and other letters: ‘We preach Christ crucified’ (1 Corinthians 1:23), ‘Far be it from me to glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ’ (Galatians 6:14), ‘He is able to save to the uttermost them that draw near to God through him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them’ (Hebrews 7:25, cf
Paul as an Evangelical Mystic - I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ Iiveth in me. " But why argue out such remote and historical instances when we have it all within ourselves? Let any man among ourselves carry about Christ in his own heart; let any man abide in Christ as the branch abides in the vine: let any man cleave as close to Christ as a member of our body cleaves close to its head: let any man say unceasingly every day, and in every cross and temptation of every day, "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live: yet not I, but Christ liveth in me;" and you will be absolutely sure to find that man the most willing, the most active, the most practical, and the most efficient man in every kind of Christian work
Number - It answers to the three years and a half of Christ's witness for the truth, when the Jews disowned and the God-opposed world power crucified Him (Daniel 9:27)
Timothy, the Second Epistle to - 63; some Christians were crucified, some arrayed in wild beasts' skins, and hunted to death by dogs, wrapped in pitch robes some were set on fire by night to illuminate the Vatican circus and Nero's gardens while that monster played the charioteer
Rock - They resent Him, they reject Him, they crucified Him, and today they will not have Him
Abgar - Having become assured that his guest is the promised disciple of Jesus, and that he has come fully empowered to heal and to save on condition of his exercise of faith, Abgar assures Thaddaeus that his faith is so strong that, had it not been for the presence of the Romans, he would have sent an army to destroy the Jews that crucified Jesus
Necessitarians - It was ordained that Christ should be delivered up to death; but he could not have been betrayed without a betrayer, nor crucified without crucifiers
Rome, - Others were crucified
King - Unrepentant sinners did not want a king whose concern was for such a kingdom, and in the end they had him crucified (Matthew 27:29; Matthew 27:37; Matthew 27:42; John 19:15; John 19:19; cf
John, Gospel of - From there he was taken to the Roman governor (18:28-40), humiliated before the people (19:1-16), crucified (19:17-30) and buried (19:31-42)
Atonement - The cross is now more than a scandal; the ‘word of the cross’ is more than an apologetic device for getting over the difficulties of accepting a crucified Messiah. -(3) The great gift of the gospel-remission of sins-is set in direct relation to the crucified Jesus (Acts 2:38; Acts 3:19; Acts 5:31; Acts 10:43). Paul himself gives us the only valuable account of his preaching, its dominant topic was the crucifixion-‘the preaching of the cross’ (1 Corinthians 1:18); ‘I determined not to know anything among you save Jesus Christ and him crucified’ (1 Corinthians 2:2)
Revelation, Theology of - The theology of Revelation stands in the mainstream of first-century Christian thought, for it presupposes, with other New Testament books, the message of the crucified and risen Christ (1:18; 2:8; 11:8); a two-stage eschatology in which Christ is presently enthroned in heaven (3:21; chap 5; 12:5,10) and will return to extend God's rule over the earth (2:27; 11:15); and a church in which Gentiles share the covenantal prerogatives of Israel (5:9-10; cf. It too has been healed of a mortal wound, mimicking the crucified one (13:3,12, 14; 17:8,11)
Transubstantiation - In it the compilers declare, that "the outward elements in the sacrament of the Lord's Supper duly set apart to the uses ordained by Christ, have such relation to him crucified, as that truly, yet sacramentally only, they are sometimes called by the name of the things they represent; namely the body and blood of Christ, albeit in substance and nature they still remain truly and only bread and wine, as they were before. " Then after most powerfully exposing the absurdity of transubstantiation, representing it as repugnant not to Scripture alone, but to reason and common sense, they proceed: "Worthy receivers, outwardly partaking of the visible elements in this sacrament, do then also inwardly by faith, really and indeed, yet not carnally and corporally, but spiritually, receive and feed upon Christ crucified, and all benefits of his death: the body and blood of Christ being then not corporally or carnally in, with, or under the bread and wine, yet as really but spiritually present to the faith of believers in that ordinance, as the elements themselves are to their outward senses
Pre-Existence of Christ - The concept of pre-existence lay implicit in the Church’s most primitive consciousness of the crucified and Exalted Christ as Saviour. It is implicit there in its central truth of the suffering Messiah; but the presentation is shaped by the polemical necessities of the hour, and the chief aim is to establish that the crucified Jesus is Lord rather than to emphasize that His sovereignty is won by sacrifice
Tyre - Tyre was stormed, 8000 of her inhabitants massacred, 2000 crucified on the shore, and 30,000 sold into slavery
Peter - According to tradition, Peter was crucified in Rome some time during the period AD 65-69
Lord's Supper - Faith can make present in actual saving reality things past and things future, namely Christ's body sacrificed and His blood shed, and so have present communion with the once crucified but now glorified Lord
Messiah - This confession secured His condemnation, and He went to the cross as a crucified Messiah because the Jewish leaders failed to perceive the nature of messiahship as Jesus understood it
Truth - Thus the Suffering Servant of Jahweh of Deutero-Isaiah led to a better understanding of the crucified Lord (Acts 8:35), and prophets as well as private Christians learned the truth better through examination of the Scriptures (Acts 17:11)
Reproach (2) - —So far as the term is concerned, it is only by the two robbers who were crucified along with Him that our Lord is said to have been reproached (ὀνειδίζω, Matthew 27:44, Mark 15:32; see Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 )
Pharisees - The hostility was especially great during the reign of Alexander Jannaeus (103-76), and they seem to have taken a leading part in opposition to him; it is usually assumed that Pharisees composed either all or a large part of the eight hundred Jews he later crucified (Ant 13
Jesus Christ - Pilate yielded to the Jews, delivered Jesus to be mocked and crucified
Apollos - Paul resolved ‘not to know anything save Christ, and him crucified’ (1 Corinthians 2:2)
Caracalla, the Nickname of m. Aurelius Severus Antoninus Bassianus - But we hear no more of Christians being crucified, unless they were slaves, or first reduced to slavery
Descent Into Hades - Acts 2:31, that Christ did not remain in Hades; Matthew 12:40, that the period of His sojourn ‘in the heart of the earth’ was ‘three days and three nights’; Ephesians 4:9, that the crucified who descended is the Ascended Lord; and Luke 23:43, that the penitent thief would be in security with Christ in the unseen life after death. 19, ‘They crucified him, and he descended to the angel of Sheol’)
Joseph (2) - But at the crucifixion of Jesus and of the two malefactors, the Jews, anxious that the bodies should not remain upon the cross during the Sabbath, besought Pilate that the legs of the crucified might be broken and death hastened, and that then the bodies might be taken away (John 19:31)
Corner-Stone - ...
Such were the meanings of the rejected corner-stone that in their Messianic application were hidden from those who crucified the Lord of glory (1 Corinthians 2:8), but were revealed to the Gentiles, the ‘other husbandmen,’ when the word of acceptance and service came to them (Ephesians 2:19-22)
Stephen - ...
The members of the council, remembering probably the use of similar language by Jesus when on trial before them (Matthew 26:64), being at all events resolved to treat as blasphemy Stephen's assertion of the divine exaltation of Him whom they had crucified, cried aloud, stopped their ear's (unconsciously realizing Stephen's picture of them: Acts 7:51; Psalms 58:4), ran upon him with one accord (contrast "with one accord," Acts 4:24), and cast him out of the city (as was the custom in order to put out from the midst of them such a pollution: 1 Kings 21:13; Luke 4:29; Hebrews 13:12) and stoned him, all sharing in the execution, the witnesses casting the first stones (Deuteronomy 13:9-10; Deuteronomy 17:7; John 8:7), after having stripped off the outer garments for greater ease in the bloody work, and laid them at the feet of Saul who thereby signified his consent to Stephen's execution (Acts 8:1; Acts 22:20)
Athens - It is significant that in Corinth the Apostle determined-not, indeed, for the first time, but certainly with a new emphasis-not to know anything save Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2), who was for both Jews and Hellenes the power of God and the wisdom of God (1:24)
Worship - This was a mode of expressing, by means perceptible to the senses, the purely Christian idea, that all the actions of Christians, as well as the whole course of their life, must be sanctified by faith in the crucified Jesus, and by dependence upon him; and that this faith is the most powerful means of conquering all evil, and preserving oneself against it. But here also, again, men were too apt to confuse the idea and the token which represented it; and they attributed the effects of faith in the crucified Redeemer to the outward sign, to which they ascribed a supernatural, sanctifying, and preservative power; an error of which we find traces as early as the third century. The weekly and the yearly festivals originally arose from the self-same fundamental idea, which was the centre point of the whole Christian life; the idea of imitating Christ, the crucified and the risen; to follow him in his death, by appropriating to ourselves, in penitence and faith, the effects of his death, by dying to ourselves and to the world; to follow him in his resurrection, by rising again with him, by faith in him and by his power, to a new and holy life, devoted to God, which, beginning here below in the seed, is matured in heaven
Union With Christ - ...
Through identification with the crucified and resurrected Savior, the believer dies to the old humanity and is incorporated into the new humanity made possible by the Second Adam. These are terms that not only represent the status of an individual before and after conversion, but also signify the change that has already taken effect in Christ's death (Romans 6:6 "we know that our old self was crucified with him" )
Jesus Christ - The Jews crucified the Lord of glory, 1 Corinthians 2:8 . Jamieson's View of the Doctrine of Scripture, and the Primitive Faith concerning the Deity of Christ; Owen on the Glory of Christ's Person; Hurrion's Christ crucified; Bishop Newcome's Observation on our Lord's Conduct; and Paley's Evidences of Christianity
Galatians, Letter to the - Faith in the crucified Christ, not legalism, brings the indwelling Spirit (Galatians 3:1-5 )
Forgiveness - The triumphant cry of the crucified, ‘It is finished’ ( John 19:30 ), is for this writer the guarantee not only that ‘the Death of Christ is the objective ground on which the sins of men are remitted’ (Dale, The Atonement , p
Preach, Proclaim - " In 1:23 Paul declares that he proclaims Christ crucified

Romans, the Epistle to the - ...
The superseding of the law by Christ its fulfillment, so far from licensing sin, makes the believer dead to sin and the law with the crucified Christ, that henceforth he may walk in newness of life, by the power of the Spirit, with the risen Saviour who was raised by the same Spirit, the earnest of our coming glorification with Him (Romans 6-8)

The schema of the new religion is clearly set forth; Jesus is the Messiah (Acts 2:36, Romans 7:1-6), predicted in the Scriptures (Acts 7:52, Acts 8:35, Acts 13:47), attested by the Resurrection (Acts 2:32, Acts 10:41, Acts 13:33, Acts 26:23); acceptance of Him as such is the basis of salvation (Acts 4:12, Acts 10:43, Acts 13:39); but there must be also a very definite repentance, not merely for having crucified the Messiah (Acts 2:38), but a turning from iniquities (Acts 3:26), and from darkness to light (Acts 26:18), and this is to be followed by works worthy of repentance (Acts 26:20); baptism follows on repentance and seems to have a sacramental efficacy (βαπτισθήτω … εἰς ἄφεσιν τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ὑμῶν, Acts 2:38; βάπτισαι καὶ ἀπόλουσαι τὰς ἁμαρτίας σου, Acts 22:16)

Where did they make ready to eat the passover? What were they doing at the hour when He was in Gethsemane?

Ignatius, brought before the emperor Trajan, calls himself Theophorus, ‘Bearer of God,’ saying that he bears the crucified within his breast
Confession - The following passage we cite, for the purpose of marking its coincidence with the Apostles' Creed, to which we shall have occasion soon to advert: "This," says he, "is the sole, immovable, irreformable rule of faith; namely, to believe in the only God Almighty, maker of the world; and his Son Jesus Christ, born of the virgin Mary, crucified under Pontius Pilate, the third day raised from the dead, received into heaven, now sitting at the right hand of the Father, about to come and judge the quick and the dead, by the resurrection also of the flesh. 325,) in which Arianism was not only condemned, but proscribed, the confession established as the universal standard of truth and orthodoxy runs thus: "I believe, in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible; and in one Lord Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father, before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten not made, being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made; who for us men, and for our salvation, descended from heaven, and became incarnate by the Holy Ghost, of the virgin Mary; and was made man, was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate
Paul (2) - The glorified Christ was none the less identical with the crucified Jesus of Nazareth. ...
Already in the infant Church, following, as we believe, hints of the Lord Himself, there was a tendency to explain the death of the crucified by means of principles inherent in the OT, by the idea of sacrifice and by the idea of vicarious suffering; on the one hand, by the analogy of the Levitical sacrifices, and, on the other hand, by the description of the Servant of Jahweh in Deutero-Isaiah
Sanctification, Sanctify - Being our Head and Representative before God, dedicating ‘all his own’ ( John 17:10 ) to the Father in the offering of Calvary, Jesus virtually accomplished the sanctification of His people, with their justification, once for all ( 1 Corinthians 1:30 ): Paul’s saying, ‘I have been crucified with Christ’ ( Galatians 2:20 ; Galatians 6:14 ), implies that he has been, by anticipation, included in the perfect sacrifice; he thus unfolds the implicit doctrine of John 17:9 f
Baptism - Here, and in Romans 6:3-4-5-6, baptism is viewed as identifying us with Christ, by our union to His once crucified and now risen body, and as entailing in us also a death unto sin and a new birth unto righteousness, and as involving as the final issue our bodily sharing in the likeness of His resurrection, at the coming first resurrection, that of the saints
