I recently went to a museum here in West Yorkshire, England, UK. In it, there were artifacts from ancient Roman Britain, where I noticed some ancient rusty Roman nails…
As I gazed upon these I though about Jesus Christ, my LORD and my Savour. I thought about how He endured a torturous 3 days on the Cross. These nails are huge, and no-doubt nails similar to these was driven through the loving hands of Jesus. Please think about what Jesus did for you. Here’s an extract from John in the Holy Bible:
The King on a Cross
John 19:17 onwards (New King James Version)
And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha,where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the center. Now Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was:
JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Then many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin.
Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, “I am the King of the Jews.”’”
Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”
Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic. Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece. They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be,” that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says:
“They divided My garments among them,
And for My clothing they cast lots.”
Therefore the soldiers did these things.
