How do you feel about your sin?  Do you hate sin?  Do you hate evil?

Psalms 97:10 - Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: . . .

The only time a godly person, a child of God, is ever told to hate anything is in this verse.  God's people ought to hate sin.  But far to often we love our sin more than we love our Lord Jesus Christ.

How do we know when we love our sin more than we love Christ?  When we are tempted to sin, and choose to sin, rather than to remain obedient to Christ, our actions declare that we love our sin more than we love our Lord.  We may not want to admit that our choices and actions reflect our affections or our love, but they do.  That's why we say, "Actions speak louder than words."  The Word of God says,

James 1:22 - But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

Our Lord said,

John 14:15 - If ye love me, keep may commandments.

If you love the Lord Jesus Christ then you ought to hate sin.  You ought to hate sin because of what our sin caused our Lord to suffer.  Our Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died on, what we call, Good Friday many years ago.  It is Good Friday for you and I, beacause the full penalty for our sins was paid in full by our Lord, but that Friday was anything but good for our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Bible says,

Isaiah 53:1-5 1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Romans 3:24-26 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

Romans 6:6-9 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

So, what does hating sin and loving our Lord Jesus Christ have to do with Good Friday and the suffering of our Lord?     

A.   The Course of Events

1.     Jesus anointed for burial in Simon the Leper’s house in Bethany (Matt 26.6-13; Mark 14.1-11; cf. John 11.2; John 12.1-8) – Mark begins his discourse of the Passion of our Lord with this act of anointing while Matthew places this two days prior and , John marks this as much as six days prior.  It occurred within the week of Jesus’ crucifixion.

2.     The betrayal arraigned by Judas Iscariot (Luke 22.1-6)

3.     Passover Supper (Matt 26.17-29; Mark 14.12-25; Luke 22.7-38; John 13.1-)

a.     The washing of the apostles feet (John 13.3-17)

John 13:8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

John 13:10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

b.     A betrayal revealed (Matt 26.23; Mark 14.18-20; Luke 22.21; John 13.18-30)

c.      The Lord's Table (Matt 26.26-29; Mark 14.22-26; Luke 22.19-20)

d.     Judas leaves the feast (John 13.30-31)

e.      Jesus Passover sermon (John 13.31-16.33)

John 13:34-35 34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

John 14:1-3 1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John 14:16-18 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

John 15:12-13 12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

John 15:18-19 18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

John 16:1-2 1 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

f.       Jesus Passover Prayer (John 17.1-26)

John 17:20-24 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Matthew 26:52-54 - Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place:for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But howr then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

c.      The Feast of Saturnalia (Matt 27.27-31; Mark 15.16-20; John 19.2-3)[1]

They had, at this particular time, corresponding to the Jewish Passover, they had the feast of Saturnalia; and, in this feast, they made sport of a mock king. And, if they could not have a real prisoner to make sport of, they would make a man of straw and buffet him around—their mock king. But, this time they had a very special prisoner—One who called Himself the King of the Jews. And so, they made a crown for Him. They put a purple robe on Him, and then, they blindfolded Him, and they began to shove Him from one soldier to another. They would shove Him to a soldier, and that soldier would take his big brawny fist and smite the Lord Jesus. And then, they'd say, "If You're a prophet, tell us who smote you." And then, they'd shove Him to another one, and this one would take His beard and pluck it from His cheeks. The prophets said they tore the hair from his face (Isaiah 50:6). Can you imagine?

Then, another—He'd be shoved to another one, and this one was a foul mouth, full of spit, who would spit in the face, mingled with blood, with foul human spit, in the face of the Lord of glory. Then, they shoved Him to another one; this one had a club. Now, the Bible says they smote Him with a reed (Mark 15:19). Don't get the idea that it was a reed like some fragile limb from a shrub. It was a bamboo club; and, with that bamboo club, they battered and bruised the Lord Jesus. And, with that club, they drove those nails, or those thorns, hideous thorns, into His temple. When they had finished with the Lord Jesus—blood running from His nose, His teeth loosened, His temples pierced, His face swollen, His body flayed—it would have been hard to tell whether He was a man or an animal that had been stripped of His skin. It is no wonder that Christ was unable to bear His own cross.

d.     Pontius Pilate declares Jesus innocent the third time (Luke 23.22; John 19.6)

12. The Leading To Crucifixion (Matt 27.31-32; Mark 15.20-21; Luke 23.26-32)

13. The Crucifixion, Golgotha and Calvary (Matt 27.33-50;Mark 15.22-37; Luke 23.33-45; John 19.16-29)

14.   The Death of Christ (Matt 27.50-56; Mark 15.37-41; Luke 23.46-49; John 19.30-37)

Matthew 27:50-51 50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

Mark 15:37-38 37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. 38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.

Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
