        1. Crucifixion and Death: ERS p.156
           (i) Crucifixion was a common Roman form of execution. It was a cruel
                form of punishment as death usually occurred through slow suffocation,
                in agony.
           (ii) Jesus’ crucifixion fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies and revealed
                God’s forgiveness of the sin of humankind.
           (iii) Jesus’ death on the Cross revealed his willingness to bear the extreme
                 suffering and God’s love to forgive humankind.
            (iv) Compare the reaction of different people to the crucifixion:
                 (a) the soldiers: mocked Jesus
                 (b) Simon of Cyrene: helped Jesus
                 (c) The two bandits: insulted Jesus (one insulted Jesus, one adored
                     him)(different gospels).

                    Jesus being the Son of God; some women looked on from a far
         2. Burial: ERS p.160
             (i) Jesus’ burial proved that he had really died.
             (ii) Joseph of Arimathea risked to ask for the body of Jesus. He was a
                  member of the Sanhedrin Council. He wanted to observe Jewish law.
             (iii) Only the army officer’s report did Pilate give permission to Joseph to
                   take the body of Jesus.
