The Truth of the Crucifixion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus

The Truth of the Crucifixion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Rev. Lynwood F Mundy First Day in the Tomb.Bible truth reveals that Jesus was crucified on a Wednesday, the date was Nisan 15.  He had to be placed into the tomb BEFORE Sunset, which is by Jewish custom 6 PM—which is the beginning of a new day. (The Jewish day begins at sunset 6 PM, the day begins at 6 AM, the beginning of sunrise to sunset.  This is the completion of a 24-hour day.)

Thoughts for the Quiet Hour

April 2

  The Lord God formed man out of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul
Gen. 2:7
And so this soul of mine is a compound of two worlds—dust and Deity! It touches the boundary line of two hemispheres. It is allied on one side to the divine; on the other, to the beast of the field. Its beginning is from beneath, but its culmination is from above; it is started from the dust of the ground, but it is finished in the breath of God.
My soul, art thou living up to thy twofold origin? Art thou remembering thy double parentage, and therefore thy double duty? Thou hast a duty to thy God, for His breath is in thee; thou hast a duty to the earth, for out of it wast thou taken.

Osbeck, Kenneth W. Amazing Grace: 366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotions

April 2

IN THE HOUR OF TRIAL James Montgomery, 1771–1854

  No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can stand up to it. (1 Corinthians 10:13)

Crisis situations are often the important pivotal points in our lives. Our response to these traumatic times—the loss of a loved one, a change in employment, a mistreatment by a trusted friend—will be the foundation stones upon which our lives are built. Maintaining the glow of our first love for God despite all the stresses of life is a major concern. The third stanza of this hymn teaches so well what our attitude should be when difficulties come our way: A desire to know what God is saying through the experience and a willingness to cast our cares on Him.

This beloved hymn was written by one of England’s foremost hymn writers, James Montgomery. It was first published in 1853 with …

Spurgeon, Charles H. Morning and Evening: Daily Readings

         “He answered him to never a word.”
— Matthew 27:14
He had never been slow of speech when he could bless the sons of men, but he would not say a single word for himself. “Never man spake like this man,” and never man was silent like him. Was this singular silence the index of his perfect self- sacrifice? Did it show that he would not utter a word to stay the slaughter of his sacred person, which he had dedicated as an offering for us? Had he so entirely surrendered himself that he would not interfere in his own behalf, even in the minutest degree, but be bound and slain an unstruggling, uncomplaining victim? Was this silence a type of the defencelessness of sin? Nothing can be said in palliation or excuse of human guilt; and, therefore, he who bore its whole weight stood speechless before his judge. Is not patient silence the best reply to a gainsaying world? Calm endurance answers some ques…

April 2: The Final SayDeuteronomy 2:1–3:29; 2 Corinthians 1:12–16; Psalm 31:10–24
Having the final say in an argument is more satisfying than I’d like to admit. By default, I’d like to be right, even if I have to be pedantic. I wish I could say this was limited to petty concerns. But on more than one occasion, when discussing issues of eternal significance, I’ve used my trump card in a desire to win an argument.

Paul specifically addresses this type of pride and boasting throughout 2 Corinthians. However, we come across a surprising statement in 2 Corinthians 1: “For our reason for boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you, in holiness and purity of motive from God, not in merely in human wisdom, but by the grace of God” (2 Cor 1:12).

At first glance, Paul appears to be boasting in his own actions. Isn’t this evidence of the very same pride he denounces (1 Cor 5:6)?

But the key phrases, “holiness and purity o…
