The Essence of Easter

Mark 15:33  (ID: 0104)

In a culture where Easter conjures images of candy and colored eggs, Alistair Begg reminds us of the pain, suffering, and ultimate triumph of Jesus’ crucifixion. Having forsaken God in our sin, we each share a problem that requires Christ crucified as the only solution. Through the cross, Christ entered into the depth of our suffering. Salvation came at an overwhelming cost—yet it is profoundly simple for all who look to Christ.

The Death of Jesus

33And when the sixth hour6 had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.7
