Crucifixion and Resurrection
As for the crucifixion the Lord refers us to the gospels saying that these are detailed enough for understanding what happened. However, three highly interesting subjects are revealed to us: the unification of the Father with the Son, the meaning of the words Jesus spoke on the cross and the events accompanying Jesus‘ death.
"... These blind ones will nail the Lord of Glory on a cross!"
1. The unification
2. Jesus‘ Words on the Cross
3. The Events at Jesus‘ Death (GGJ.11/074,18 on)
The Lord has given us a detailed account of all that happened between
His death on Friday afternoon and His Resurrection on Easter Sunday
Lord: "It is now said that darkness had descended as My body was
hanging on the cross. Indeed, there was a great inner darkness over
Jerusalem, but not of an outer kind. It was an inner one, which
everyone felt as though he had lost something, without knowing what it
was, and even the high priests, the teachers of the law, the Pharisees
and temple Jews, who had so fiercely demanded My death, found no
satisfaction or joy in their deed.
This is why the temple took
no steps against My disciples and nearest relatives, nor against
Nicodemus, Joseph of Arimathea and Lazarus, all of whom made a
pilgrimage to My cross and were present during the last hour before My
death. My own owed it above all to the high rank of Nicodemus, as a
member of the Great Council, that they were allowed to stay around,
whereas on other occasions the place was cordoned off by soldiers,
admitting no one. Owing to his intercession an exception was made. But
My closest disciples, except John, were not present, as I had often
prophesied earlier. The shepherd was slain, and so the sheep dispersed.
After My arrest some had fled to Lazarus and the others were hidden by
John was the only one who dared show himself everywhere openly and was a support and comfort to My physical mother Mary.
who after his fall had been seized by deep remorse, did secretly follow
the procession leading My through the streets of Jerusalem from one
official to the other, yet he kept away from all the brothers, feeling
in his soul the desire to be alone. Only now did he gain full clarity
as to My mission, to which end the spiritual exercises in Ephrem had
been particularly useful. He recognized the nature and purpose of My
physical death and was also firmly convinced of its necessity, as well
as of My predicted resurrection, firmly trusting in it without,
however, uttering a word about it.
Concerning My last hours the
most important things have been said earlier, and whoever wants to
recall them, let him read "The Seven Words on the Cross," and he will
know enough about My last hours.*
As My soul separated from the
body, there certainly was an earth tremor. But this again was not too
striking a phenomenon, since in My time in that region the subterranean
forces of the Jordan valley were far more noticeable than now,
wherefore earth tremors were not all too rare. However, it never
entered the minds of the obdurate Jews that this phenomenon might
really be connected with My death.
Also it is true that the
curtain in the temple was torn in two as an outward sign that there was
no longer any barrier before the most holy heart of the Father, even
that everyone could get there to receive life eternal. But also this
event, though strange, did not create a sensation. The priests on duty
hung up the curtain again, and the matter was settled.
it is said that the sun lost its shine. It has already been stated that
an eclipse did not occur. But everyone knows that earth tremors in
warmer zones are preceded by a darkening of the atmosphere, whereby the
sun loses some of its brilliance. Something similar happened here.
However, this loss of brightness was due to a different reason from the
usual, although the phenomenon was the same.
It is also reported
that the dead rose from their graves and appeared to many. This report
must be properly understood, and whoever will take in the following,
will grasp it.
When My body had died and My numerous enemies had
fully quenched their thirst for revenge, the people soon scattered
because an inward horror - the very same inner darkness already
mentioned - impelled everyone to seek protection in his own house
where, according to their laws, the Jews had to prepare for the
Sabbath, which began at sundown.
My followers came gradually closer
to the place of execution, so that many of My friends were there.
Joseph of Arimathea had earlier gone to Pilate asking for My body, a
favor not always granted.
However, Pilate gladly granted it,
wishing thereby to annoy the Jews, as he did by the trilingual
inscription at the head of the cross saying that I was the king of the
My friends took the body down forthwith, cleansed and
anointed it and carried it carefully to a rock tomb belonging to Joseph
of Arimathea, on a property he had bought from Nicodemus there to be
Golgotha was a rocky hill, but very close to a
densely populated residential suburb, where many wealthy Romans and
Jews had bought land and built magnificent villas. Ibis explains the
proximity of the garden.
Into this tomb they laid My body, closing it carefully - for fear the Jews in their wickedness might even violate My dead body.
Jews, in turn, feared that My followers might steal the body and then
say I had risen from the dead; for they had heard and knew that a rumor
was going around of My predicted death and resurrection. Therefore,
they asked Pilate for guards. These he granted, even out of curiosity
of what miraculous things might happen, as were expected by all the
friends on the one hand, as well as feared by the enemies on the other
hand. Therefore, Roman soldiers were ordered to guard the tomb for five
