The Cross Throughout the Scriptures – Part 10

 

12. DEU 21:23 Unveils the Horrors of the Infamous Cross.

HEB 12:2 Be concentrating on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame,

GAL 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us – for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”

To arise from the dead that we might be identified with Him, freed from guilt and shame, share the riches of His grace and the victories of His Ascension as one seated with Him in heavenly places.

2CO 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

1JO 2:28 And now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming.

REV 3:18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and {that} the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed;

REV 16:15 Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his garments, lest he walk about naked and men see his shame.

JOH 15:20 Remember the word that I said to you, “A slave is not greater than his master.” If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you;

ACT 5:41 So they went on their way from the presence of the Council, rejoicing that they had been considered worthy to suffer shame for His name.

ROM 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes,

PHI 1:20 On the basis of my intense concentration and confident expectation that I shall not be put to shame in anything,

2TI 1:8 Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, or of me His prisoner; but join with {me} in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God,

ISA 53:3 He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face, He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

ISA 53:4 Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.

ISA 53:5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being {fell} upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.

ISA 53:6 All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.

ISA 53:7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth.

13. The Psalm of the Crucifixion. Psa 22

“My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?”

kiy asah = “It is finished” = He has performed it.

Many of the O. T. foreshadowings of TLJC have their roots in the historical circumstances of the Jewish people.

TLJC knew that however things may look, there is no injustice and unfairness with God.

HEB 13:5 “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”

Our Lord felt comparable to a helpless, powerless, downtrodden worm, passive while crushed, and unnoticed and despised by those who walk upon Him.

MAT 27:39 And those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads,

MAT 27:40 and saying, “You who {are going to} destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save Yourself! If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross.”
