Jesus' death could never be characterized as routine or uneventful. Not only were the events surrounding it abnormal, but the way He died was unusual, too. He was offered wine with gall (a probably narcotic for easing the pain) but refused to partake of it because He wanted to fully accept the death that we deserve. When Jesus offered up His spirit the temple curtain was torn in two, an earthquake shook the ground, tombs were opened, and dead people were raised to life and revealed themselves to many. Even a centurion watching all of this take place determined that Jesus must have been the Son of God. That's quite a death! Thankfully it's a death that we can cling to so we can find life.
You are here: / / A death like no other (Matthew 27)
