The Crucifixion

John 19:17-27  (ID: 1323)

The details of Christ’s crucifixion – the identities of those present, the words spoken there, and the actions of the various groups – often preoccupy scholars and preachers. However, in this message, Alistair Begg demonstrates that it is the theology of the event that ought to capture our hearts and minds. Certainly we may seek to identify and learn from the ancillary details of the day, but it is the crucified Christ whose presence, words, and actions warrant our full attention and study.


17and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called The Place of a Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha.
