Genesis 3:17-18 "Cursed is the ground because of you( first adam); through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you(second adam), and you will eat the plants of the field."

Isaiah 1:18 "Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD.   Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool."

     The significance of the scarlet robe and crown of thorns is to emphasize Jesus' taking the sins of the world upon His body   The Bible describes sin by the color of scarlet (Is 1:18) and that thorns first appeared after the fall, as a sign of the curse.   Thus, the articles that He wore are symbols to show that Jesus took on the sins (and the curse) of the world upon Himself.   

Matthew 27:46 "About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, 'Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?' -- which means, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

 With the sin of the world upon Him, Jesus suffered spiritual death (separation from the Father).  

 Isaiah 59:2 says that sins cause a separation from God, and that He hides His face from you so that He does not hear.   The Father must turn away from His Beloved Son on the cross.   For the first time, Jesus does not address God as His Father.

The second drink, which He accepts moments before His death, is described as a wine vinegar. Jn 19:29.   Two points are important to note.   The drink was given on the "stalk of a hyssop plant".   Remember that these events occurred at the Feast of the Passover. During this feast, (Ex 12:22) hyssop was used to apply the blood of the Passover lamb to the wooden door posts of the Jews.   It is interesting the end of this hyssop stalk pointed to the blood of the Perfect Lamb which was applied to the wooden cross for the salvation of all mankind.   In addition, the wine vinegar is a product of fermentation, which is made from grape juice and yeast.   The word literally means "that which is soured" and is related to the Hebrew term for "that which is leavened". (Holmans)   Yeast or leaven, is a Biblical symbol of sin.   When Jesus took this drink, (i.e. a drink which was "leavened") it is thus symbolic of His taking the sins of the world into His body.

Psalm 22:12-13 "Many bulls surround me; strong bulls of Bashan encircle me.   Roaring lions tearing their prey open their mouths wide against me."

     While He was on the cross, darkness covered the land (noon to three p.m.).   Jesus, in Luke 22:53, associates those who arrested Him with the power of darkness. “ When I was with you daily in the temple, you did not try to seize Me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness." 

 Where were the evil forces while Jesus was on the cross?   The verses above from Psalm 22 seem out of place when first read.   There seems to be no mention of "bulls" and "lions" around the cross.   The verses, however, have a deeper meaning.  Bashan was an area to the east of the Jordan River which was famous for its fertility.   Cattle were raised there which grew to enormous sizes.   The people there worshipped demon spirits (associated with Baal) within the cattle.   In 1 Pet 5:8, Satan is described as "a roaring lion...seeking those who he may devour"   These verses are thus suggestive of the spiritual activity of Satan and his demons, celebrating as Jesus was suffering on the cross.

John 19:34 "Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water."

The important fact is that the medical evidence supports that Jesus did die a physical death.

    THE BLOOD is important, not just His death

"And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood" (Rev. 1:5).

The elders were admonished "to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood" (Acts 20:28). Redemption and remission of sins cannot be apart from "faith in his blood" (Rom. 3:24,25). We are "justified by his blood" (Rom. 5:9). "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins . . . " (Eph. 1:7). We "are made nigh by the blood of Christ" (Eph. 2:13). "We have redemption through his blood" (Col. 1:14), and he "made peace through the blood of his cross" (Col. 1:20).

In Hebrews we are told that "by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us" (Heb. 9:12). We are told, "without shedding of blood is no remission" (Heb. 9:22). We have "boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus" (Heb. 10:19). Jesus suffered with out the camp, "that he might sanctify the people with his own blood" (Heb. 13:12).

John tells us clearly that "the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin" (I John 1:7). "Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood" (Rev. 1:5). They will sing of Christ, "thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood" (Rev. 5:9).

Rev. 7:14.. "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

"For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins" (Matt. 26:28). "This cup is the new testament in my blood which is shed for you" (Luke 22:20).

 

The children of Israel were told to slay the passover lamb. They were to take the blood of the lamb, and strike it upon the door posts of their houses. "And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you..." (Ex. 12:13). God did not tell them to hang the body of the lamb on the door post.

 

Lev. 17:11: "For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul."
