Bible writers weren’t the only ones talking about crucifixions…or the crucifixion of Jesus. Roman writers did, too, with gritty detail. Jesus’ crucifixion actually shows up in Roman history books and letters written in his own century.

Beautiful…..and I would only add one thing  – that shameful, slow, horribly painful death was meant for me. I deserved it, but He did it for me out of His great love..that fact changes everything for me, and nothing else matters. Thank you, Jesus.
