From Humility & Suffering for us to His Exaltation as
Lord of All.

Luke 3:16 "John answered all, saying, I indeed baptize you with water, but He who is mightier than I comes, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to loose. He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire,"
Luke 12:49 "I have come to send fire on the earth. And what will I do if it is already kindled?"

For an internal understanding of Jesus' sufferings and death, we must turn to the Prophet Isaiah, who wrote on the suffering Servant, the Messiah:
The Exchanges Jesus made for us at the cross are:

1. Jesus was made sin with our sinfulness so that we could have His righteousness -1 Peter 2:24

2.He was punished for our transgressions that we might have His peace
. ISA 53:5

3.He bore our sickness and infirmities that we might have His health
ISA 53:5, MATT 8:17, ISA 53:5

4.He was made a curse that we might have His blessing

5.He took our poverty that we might have His wealth
2 COR 8:9
Note: This is not the "health & wealth" Gospel.Jesus had an abundance - He had His needs met plus. However He had no lack.)

6.He became rejection that we might have His acceptance
Eph 1:6

7.He became a slave so that we might have His freedom
Exodus 21:32, Zech 11:12, MATT 26:15, Luke 4:18

Psalm 86:13 Hell 1Cor 15:55, Rev 20:15

1 Cor 15:55-57 "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.




1. John 20:11-18 Jesus appears to Mary Magdalene who is grieving over the empty tomb suspecting that someone has stolen the Lord's dead body. Jesus says to her "Mary" she responds by saying "Rabboni" (a word honoring her teacher). Mary recognized His voice just as Jesus said in "John 10:14 "I am the Good Shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know Me."

Jesus says to her John 20:17 "Jesus said to her, do not touch me; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God." KJV

2. Matthew 28:5-15, Mark 16:2-8, Luke 24:1-11
The appearance is to the women bringing spices to anoint the body of Jesus. Angels testify that Jesus is risen and direct them to return to Jesus' disciples to announce His Resurrection. On their way, Jesus appears to them. Matt 28:8-10 "So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me." NIV

3. From a road to Jerusalem to the road to Emmaus Mark 16:12-13, Luke 24:13-35 Two disciples heading home to Emmaus were discussing the events that occurred over Passover and the death of Jesus. Their hope for Israel's redemption were crushed. Suddenly a man joins them. Speaking about Old Testament prophecies that were fulfilled by Jesus, he rebukes them for their unbelief. They listened to this stranger as He taught them. They invited Him to dinner. At the breaking of the bread, they knew that this was the resurrected Jesus.

4. Jesus appears to Simon Peter Luke 24:34, 1Cor 15:5.
Luke 24:34-35
and saying, "It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon." NIV

5. From Emmaus Road to the Upper Room - Luke 24: 36-43, John 20:19-23
Jesus walks through locked doors and appears to 10 disciples (Judas is dead and Thomas was absent.) Jesus shows that we will have resurrected bodies. That can be touched -Jesus had flesh & bone and the scars from the crucifixion. The reason why the women at the tomb, the disciples at Emmaus and in the Upper Room did not recognize Jesus right away is because He bears the scars of His crucifixion in His hands and feet and the wound from the sword. He also displays other features he received from His sufferings (Isa 53:2-3 "He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not." NIV) In Jesus' sufferings, His visage was marred beyond recognition.

6. A second Upper Room appearance John 20:24-29
Thomas doubted reports of the risen Saviour. Jesus returns to show Thomas his wounds, and to put his fingers in his wounds and to stop his disbelief.

7. From the Upper Room to the Sea of Tiberius John 21:1-25
Peter and 6 disciples had fished all night and caught nothing. Jesus beckons them from shore to cast their nets to the right side of the boat. They do as commanded and catch 153 fish. The 154th fish was the miracle fish already cooking when they arrived. When Jesus served their meal they knew it was from the Lord.

Here Jesus extracts three confessions of faith from Peter and prophecies on Peter's death. John 21:15-19. In John 21:14 it is recorded that this was the third appearance of Jesus to His disciples (apostles) referring to numbers 5 and 6 regarding His appearances.

8. Matthew 28:16-20 At Mount Tabor the disciples worship Jesus, to whom all power & authority (exousia) had been given. Jesus then gives them the Great Commission: Matt 28:20-22 "Matt 28:19-20 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age. Amen."

9. From Mount Tabor to the Upper Room Mark 16:14-18, Luke 24:44-49
Jesus again appears to the disciples in the Upper Room and reiterates His command to them. "Go ye into all the world, ..."     Mark 16:15-18

10. Jesus' Ascension from the Mount of Olives
Mark 16:19-20,Luke 24:50-53, Acts 1:8-11
"But you shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight."

11. To James and

12. to Paul 1 Cor 15:7-8
"After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles.Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time."NKJV

Salvation and the Gospel
The only way of Salvation

Bible Study Tools

Jesus suffered and died as the Lamb of God so that you might be saved.If you want to receive Jesus as your Lord & Savior, He will give you forgiveness for your sins and eternal life.
If you do not choose the most excellent and only way that God has provided to you that you might be saved, then the alternative is an eternity in Hell.


Deuteronomy 30:15 "See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil;"
Choose this day which way you want.
