Four distinct Old Testament Messianic prophecies were fulfilled by Christ's death and cited by the Apostle John.
Did the criminal crucified next to Christ go to heaven? That is commonly believed—yet even Jesus was not in heaven that day! Digging deeper shows the truth.
If the thief on the cross went to heaven the day that he was crucified, He would he have gone there without Jesus Christ, who was not in Paradise that day!
Because of the widespread belief in an immortal soul, many assume that the thief and Jesus were together after their deaths. The Bible says this cannot be.
Jesus' sinless and faithful life qualifies Him as King of Kings, in contrast to the kings of Israel who seriously fell short God's requirements.
Luke highlights Christ's willingness to give comfort and encouragement to the man dying next to Him that he would live again and be with the Son of God in Paradise.
Jesus' crucifixion took place outside the camp of Israel, just outside the border of the Garden of Eden, the general area where the Miphkad Altar stood.
Christ's trial and crucifixion were not historical accidents; rather, God prophesied both events in minute detail in Old Testament scriptures.
Joseph was an extraordinary type of Jesus Christ. His life and character parallels Christ's in at least 16 ways, which God purposefully foreordained.
During the final hours of His life, Jesus made seven last statements to mankind, illustrating His nature and what He considered to be important for us.
