12. Passion and Death of Jesus


  1. Passion and Death of Jesus

    After the Last Supper, Jesus went to the Mount of the Olives to pray. And He said: 'My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet not what I want but what you want.'(Mt 26,39). But then a group of men armed with swords and clubs arrived and arrested him.

  The Jews interrogated and unfairly accused him. Roman soldiers punished him with cruel whips and a crow of thorns, hitting him and spitting in his face. Poncius Pilatus understood that He was innocent and wanted to released him, but people shouted: 'Crucify him!', and he betrayed him, being a coward.

   Jesus charge with the cross until the mount Calvary, and there He was crucified between two thieves. At the cross' foot were his mother Mary, the apostle John and other women. At noon, the skies got dark and Jesus, shouting, said: 'Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.'(Lc 23,46) Having said this, he breathed his last. When the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God and said, ‘Certainly this man was innocent.’(Mt 27,54)
