Join pastor shawn and the gang at Calvary Chapel Birmingham as they study the Bible verse by verse and chapter by chapter. Today we continue our study of Mark 15 with the scourging and crucifixion of Jesus. We'll talk about the decision that Pilate made to give in to the crowd and what fueled that decision. We'll learn about just how brutal scourging was, and why it was done before crucifixion. We'll talk about the Roman Soldiers mocking Jesus and how it still goes on today ... even among Christians. Where was Jesus crucified? We'll talk about three possibilities. Well go to Psalm 22, Isaiah 53 and Genesis 22 to talk about prophecy. How was Simon the Cyrene affected by being made to carry the cross? What did Jesus mean when He told us to take up the cross to follow Him. Why were the religious leaders so distraught over the sign Pilate placed above Jesus on the cross? We'll talk about the veil of the Temple and what's the big deal with it being torn from the top down? Finally, we'll talk about the wonderful simplicity that is the gospel.
