In our new series, Journey to Calvary, Jesus confides in his disciples that He will soon be handed over to the Gentiles to be mocked, scourged and crucified and on the third day will be raised from the dead.

As Jesus was about to go up to Jerusalem, He took the twelve disciples aside by themselves, and on the way He said to them, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn Him to death, and will hand Him over to the Gentiles to mock and scourge and crucify Him, and on the third day He will be raised up.”
Matthew 20:17-19 NASB


They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.
John 19:17 NASB

(To Die)

He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again.
Mark 8:31 NIV

(A.D. 30-33)

Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes.
Ephesians 1:4 NLT


And they brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is translated, Place of a Skull.
Mark 15:22 NKJV


It was the third hour when they crucified Him.
Mark 15:25 NASB

(For the Sin of the World)

When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation.
Romans 5:6;9 NLT
