I wish to tell you some rather interesting occurrences that happened before, during, and after our Lord Christ Jesus was crucified. You may not be aware of this rather interesting Holy Scripture that points to a grand design by our Lord God in the life of our Lord Christ Jesus. I think you will find it rather interesting.
You see, a gathering of groups of three frames the crucifixion of our Lord Christ Jesus.
For example, before the crucifixion, Christ Jesus predicts his own death three times in Luke 9:22, 9:44, and 18:31-33.
Our Lord Christ Jesus says to Peter, “Peter, let me tell you something. Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny three times that you even know me.” This in Luke 22:34.
Peter then denies Christ Jesus three different times. You will find this in Luke 22:57-61.
Our Lord Christ Jesus says to His disciples, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” As an interesting side note, you will only find this quote in the Gospel of John 14:6.
In the Garden of Gethsemane, Christ Jesus takes three disciples to pray with him. They are Peter, James, and John. Our Lord Christ Jesus prays to His Father three times and finds Peter, James, and John sleeping each time Christ Jesus returns to check on them, which is three times. This you will find in Matthew 26:36-45.
On the day of crucifixion three crosses stand on the place called The Skull, one cross to the left of our Lord Christ Jesus and one cross to His right.
There were three hours of darkness from noon to three o'clock. You will find this in Luke 23:44.
There were three women, all named Mary, standing near the cross of our Lord Christ Jesus on the day of His crucifixion. Christ Jesus' mother Mary, his mother’s sister Mary (the wife of Clopas), and Mary Magdalene. This in John 19:25.
The sign nailed to the cross above our Lord Christ Jesus’ head, was written in three languages; Greek, Hebrew, and Latin. This from John 19:20.
Our Lord Christ Jesus was crucified in the third hour. This verse you will find in Mark 15:25.
Christ Jesus died on the cross at three o'clock in the afternoon. "By this time it was about noon, and darkness fell across the whole land until three o'clock. The light from the sun was gone. And suddenly, the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn down the middle. Then Jesus shouted, 'Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands!' And with those words he breathed his last?" You will find these verses in Luke 23:44-46.
Our Lord Christ Jesus was resurrected on the third day. This in Luke 24:6-7.
There were three women who visited the tomb of Christ Jesus. All were named Mary. They being Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and John, and Mary Salome. This we find in Mark 16:1.
Christ Jesus appears three times after His resurrection to His disciples. First in John 20:19 then again in John 20:26, and lastly, in John 21:14.
Our Lord Christ Jesus asks Peter three times if Peter loved Him. This we find in John 21:15, and again in John 21:16, and lastly, in John 21:17. Three times Peter replied that he did love his Lord Christ Jesus in the same three verses.
Christ Jesus’ earthly ministry lasted three years.
In the Holy Scriptures, the number three represents the Trinity of the Father, of the Son, and of The Holy Spirit. I do hope you enjoyed learning something special concerning the Crucifixion of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus.
