The Life of Jesus; read today: Jesus bows his head and dies; Matthew 27:50; Mark 15:37; Luke 23:46; John 19:30
ESV: John 19:30. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, It is finished, and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
As strong as Jesus was, physically and spiritually, I do not believe that He was killed. I do not believe it was possible to kill Him at all. I do believe that He had fulfilled all that He was supposed to do and knew this was the time.
Jesus did all He did because He had one idea in mind, salvation for you and me. Until He had done that He was going to stay alive no matter the pain. What if He had to do something else? Would He still stayed alive. Yes! His love for us was that strong.
Read for next time: Temple veil torn from top to bottom; Matthew 27:51; Mark 15:38; Luke 23:45
