Jesus is Crucified. Luke 23:32-49 耶穌被钉十字架 路加福音23：32-49
Jesus and His disciples were very busy the week He rode into Jerusalem on a colt.
The first books of the New Testament, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John tell about Jesus’ teaching and healing.
~ Jesus ate the Last Supper with His disciples, and told them to continue celebrating this meal.
Today we call it the Lord’s Supper.
We eat the bread and drink the wine to remember Him as we take His body and blood.
~Jesus prayed fervently to His Father in the Garden of Gethsemane.
~Jesus was betrayed by Judas and put on trial by the church leaders.
~Jesus was taken before Pilate and Herod and back to Pilate again.
~Pilate condemned Jesus to death by crucifixion, after having Him whipped.
Crucifixion was a horrible death.
Only slaves and the worst criminals who were not Roman citizens were crucified.
Jesus was nailed to the cross, an extra punishment.
This happened at 9AM. Jesus suffered on the cross until 3PM.
Read Luke 23: 32- 34. Who was crucified with Jesus? (Two criminals)
阅读路加福音23：32-34。 有谁和耶稣一起被顶十字架？ （两名罪犯）
Which words did Jesus speak to show His complete and perfect love for all sinners?
(Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing. Luke 23:34)
John 19:23-24 tells us more about the soldiers who took Jesus clothing.
This was prophesied in Psalm
22:18 They divided my garments among them and did cast lots for my clothing.
Read Luke 23:35-43.
Who sneered and mocked Jesus while He hung on the cross for the sins of the whole world?
(Church leaders, soldiers, the criminals on the cross.)
What did the sign above His head say?
(This is the King of the Jews.)
How was this information used to mock Jesus?
(The mockers said Jesus should save Himself if He really was Christ the King of the Jews.
One of the criminals on the cross was repentant of his sins. What did he say?
(We deserve to be punished, but Jesus has done nothing wrong.
Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.)
What was Jesus’ answer? (Today you will be with Me in Paradise.)
Read Luke 23:44-49.
How did God show the entire world that His Son was dying on the cross?
(The sun stopped shining and darkness covered the land from noon until 3PM.
The thick temple and long curtain ripped in two.
Jesus called out loudly, Father, into your hands I commit my spirit. And Jesus died.
Luke tells us of three different ways people reacted when Jesus died. What were they?
(The centurion praised God, the people beat their chests* and walked away, Jesus’ friends stood apart and watched all they was happening.)
- beating chests was a sign of sorrow, or anger, or great frustration.
Relationships – What is our response to discipline? 关系 - 我们对于管教的反应
Last week we talked about discipline.
Our response to discipline needs to be a repentant and loving heart.
Prov 3:11-12 (NIV) My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.
Sinful responses to discipline are anger, or frustration, or revenge. God disciplines us because we are His children. He loves us with a love we cannot understand.
God wants us to share in His Holiness, which means, to be in heaven with Him.
God’s only purpose in disciplining us is to help us keep our faith, so that we will be in heaven with Him.
Hebrews 12:10 God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness.
How can we love a God or a parent or a teacher who disciplines us?
Romans 5:5 God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.
Loving our God or parents, or teachers when we need discipline is not something we can do without the Holy Spirit giving us that love.
When we are disciplined we want to repent of our sin,
thank God or our parents for caring so much for us,
ask God to give us the love we need to repent, thank, and love Him and our parents.
Prayer: We watch you on the cross this week, dear Jesus. We know you are being disciplined in our place, for our sins. You took our punishment, and yet you love us with a perfect love that is not angry, but full of peace and forgiveness. Jesus, help us to be like you, loving and forgiving. We praise you for taking our punishment. Amen.
Review Bible words: Jews, criminals, crucified, paradise, centurion, sneer, insult.
Memorize this important verse: Romans 5:5 God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.
Review: Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest! Matthew 21:9
复习：马太福音21： 9 和散那归于大卫的子孙！奉主名来的，是应当称颂的。高高在上和散那！
Read Luke 24:1-49 for June 14. This is the story of Jesus’ resurrection.
God had promised a Savior to Adam and Eve. God promised a Savior to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, and to David.
God promised a Savior to Mary and her cousin Elizabeth.
God promised a Savior (Jesus) to us and to all people so we would not die eternally because of our sin.
God kept His promise. He sent His Son Jesus to be born in a stable.
God was pleased with Jesus, His Son. He showed us that Jesus is God with the Father and Holy Spirit.
Jesus served God’s people by teaching them about God. He gave them faith to believe in Him as he healed people and raised them from the dead.
We are in the Kingdom of God when the Holy Spirit gives us faith to believe in Him. Zaccheus and the children received this love from Jesus, also.
Jesus was celebrated one week before His resurrection. He led a parade. He was greeted as the King. He IS the King of Heaven. Jesus died on the cross to save all people.
God’s love is for everyone. Let’s sing stanza 2 of Jesus Loves Me 上帝爱所有的人，让我们来唱耶稣爱我第2段：
Jesus loves me, He who died
Heaven’s gates to open wide.
He will wash away my sin
Let His little child come in.
Yes, Jesus loves me
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
The Bible tells me so.
God loves us so much. Jesus is waiting for us in heaven. I am excited to study with you again next Saturday.
Remember, Jesus love you.
