Where Did Satan’s Children Crucify Jesus?
Revelation 11:8-And their dead bodies shall lie in the
street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt,
where also our Lord was crucified.
Here, we have a play on words, because we know that Jesus
Christ was not crucified in Sodom or in Egypt for that matter. He was
crucified in the Holy City of Jerusalem on Passover day. Lets stay with the
witness of the written Word and document that the Passover feast was a
festival that was observed by law in Jerusalem every year.
Luke 2:41-42-Now, His parents went to Jerusalem every
year at the feast of the Passover. And when He was twelve years old, they
went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had
fulfilled the days, as they returned, the Child Jesus tarried behind in
Jerusalem; and Joseph and His mother knew not of it.
The word ‘custom’ in Greek means, "prescribed
by law." (Strong’s #1485)
Here, Joseph and Mary followed the Jewish custom and
observed the Passover feast in Jerusalem every year as prescribed by the
law. Now that we have established Jerusalem as the place of worship on
Passover, our work as prosecutors is far from over. Now we must also provide
evidence that will place Jesus in Jerusalem, to established the location
where the crime took place.
Matthew 26:1-2-And it came to pass, when Jesus had
finished all these saying, He said unto His disciples. Ye know that after
two days is the feast of the Passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be
Two days prior to the Passover feast, the scripture
clearly show that Jesus was in Jerusalem. He used that time alone with His
disciples to prophesy to them concerning His death by crucifixion.
Matthew 26:17-Now the first day of the unleavened bread
the disciples came to Jesus saying unto Him, Where wilt Thou that we
prepare for Thee to eat the Passover?
Two days later, on the day of Passover, the disciples
asked Jesus to choose a place for them to go and prepare the Passover
supper. According to the courts transcript, Jesus was in Jerusalem for the
Passover feast. Therefore, the Holy City was indeed the place where He was
Fellow Christians of the jury, in my closing augment, I
pray that you will prayerfully weigh the mountain of evidence that has been
presented to you with an open mind. If after great deliberation you find
yourself at a crossroad in deciding on the correct verdict, then the
testimony of Jesus Christ should always carry the day. On that note, the
prosecution rests its case in the murder trial of Jesus Christ. I thank you
