The Crucifixion

Love was compressed for all history in that lonely
figure on the cross, who said that He could call
down angels at any moment on a rescue mission,
but chose not to – because of us.
~ Philip Yancy

And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice,
He gave up His spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn
in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs
broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died
were raised to life. Matthew 27 v 50-52

And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus,
saw how He died,
he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!” Mark 15 v 39
