True meaning of Passion of Christ


“Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?

And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split…”
- Matthew 27:45-46;50-51

The earth shook, and its foundations trembled; the sun fled away, and the elements turned back, and the day was changed into night: for they could not endure the sight of their Lord hanging on a tree. The whole creation was amazed, marveling and saying, “What new mystery, then, is this?
The Judge is judged, and holds his peace; the Invisible One is seen, and is not ashamed; the Incomprehensible is laid hold upon, and is not indignant; the Illimitable is circumscribed, and does not resist; the Impossible suffers, and does not avenge; the Immortal dies, and answers not a word; the Celestial is laid in the grave, and endures! What new mystery is this?
The whole creation, I say, was astonished; but, when our Lord arose from the place of the dead, and trampled death under foot, and bound the strong one, and set man free, then did the whole creation see clearly that for man’s sake the Judge was condemned, and the Invisible was seen, and the Illimitable was circumscribed, and the Impassible suffered, and the Immortal died, and the Celestial was laid in the gave.For our Lord, when He was born man, was condemned in order that He might Show mercy, was bound in order that He might loose, was seized in order that He might release, suffered in order that He might feel compassion, died in order that He might give life, was laid in the grave that He might raise from the dead

A few minutes ago Jesus of Nazareth was crucified. In the moments that followed, the afternoon sky became dark as midnight. The birds stopped singing, and the wind refused to blow. Even the crowd that hours earlier had been screaming for His blood now looked on in complete silence.

The only sound you could hear were the cries of Jesus’ friends and family. They stood at the foot of the cross weeping bitterly as they watched the last drops of His blood spill out unto the ground just in front of them. Lifting their tear-filled eyes towards heaven they cried out to God, “How could you let this happen? What good can come of this?”



God answered them saying, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts (Isaiah 55:9). Be still and know I am God (Psalm 46:10) and know that all things work together for the good of those that love Me (Romans 8:28).”

God had a plan but they couldn’t see it clearly because they were looking through the eyes of man which only see the present. But God can see the beginning of history as clearly as He can see its ending and knew that everything would work out the way He wanted it to.

Where they saw an ending, God saw a beginning. Where they saw death, God saw resurrection. Where they saw hopelessness, God saw the gap between Creator and Creation being bridged. God turned the worst event in history into the greatest. And He can do the same for you and your trials.

Turn your problems over to Him and He will give you a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair (Isaiah 61:3).
