Would He Die? (John 19:28-37)Tommy Boring, April 9, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
There was never a question that Jesus would live, but if He would die. Jesus Himself had a hard time with His own death because He prayed to His father for an alternate method. Jesus told us that they would kill Him but He would raise again on the third day. Jesus wasn't sent to live, He was sent to die. When Jesus turned lose of life, He made it so that we also could live forever. Jesus did whatever He wanted to do during His death. In order for those that had died before Him to have a chance to believe in Him, He had to die as well to get them. The devil tried at ever chance he had to stop Jesus, from His birth all the way to the cross.

28After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. 29Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. 30When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. 31The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 32Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him. 33But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: 34But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. 35And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe. 36For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. 37And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
