~Crucifixion was such a terrible way to die (often taking days), it was reserved for the most hardened criminal and traitors. It is a historical fact that Jesus died by crucifixion. It is a historical fact that he believed he could save the world this way. Who could you die for like this? Anyone?

~If you were being tortured to death for any reason and had the power to free yourself in the middle of it, do you think you would use that power? Why do you think Jesus did not use his powers to free himself?

~How much control do you think it took Jesus to not use his powers to escape his terrible work on the cross – paying the ransom to Satan for our sins?

~How do you feel about Jesus right now?
