The story of Calvary

The crucifixion death penalty, imposed by the corrupt Roman Empire. added prolonged torture to the most inhuman punishment yet conceived. Typically reserved for slaves and criminals, selected at the whim of Caesar’s petty officialdom, the punishment maximized terror, pain and humiliation while. A heel bone has been discovered, pierced by a rusted spike.

Not only were gladiators killed for entertainment of a depraved population of evildoers, there is evidence of a crucifixion event added to the spectacle of a blood spectacle that must have been accompanied by agonized screams. This was the death Jesus endured to save the very people he had come to save. The Father in Heaven experienced the excruciating agony of watching his Son die to demonstrate His limitless love for the human family He had created in “His own image.”

Chapter 78 of E.G. White’s Desire of Ages, depicts the deep spiritual significance of Christ’s sacrificial crucifixion. More than a century later, Ari Meyers’ talented narration, delivers those life-changing thoughts to a contemporary world.

Chapter 81
Audio by Meyers Media Group, Ari Meyers, narrator

Had the colossal crime of Christ’s savage crucifixion,
followed by His resurrection and ascension into heaven
been myth, His followers would have cut and run.
Instead, they put their own lives on the line,
and summoned courage from their wrenching loss, they
prayed for Divine guidance and launched a global mission,
sharing a life-transforming message, opening doors
to a better today and a forever tomorrow.
