Those Final, Dreadful Hours

Artwork for The King's Commission: A Study of Matthew 21-28

The final hours of Jesus’ life were about as excruciating as anyone can endure. Matthew 27:27–50 shows how He suffered violent scourging, incessant mocking, and hours of unimaginable pain hanging on the cross until He finally offered His last breath.

Why would the innocent Son of God endure such terrible suffering? Stand with Pastor Chuck and look upon Jesus in these dark moments to see that His death was not in vain. Jesus chose to die to cancel the insurmountable debt of our sins and to restore our broken relationship with God.
