INTRODUCTION TO THE BIBLE

The story of Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection

This story is found in Matthew, chapters 26–28; Mark, chapters 14–16; Luke, chapters 22–24; John, chapters 13–21; and the ascension is also recounted in Acts 1:1–11.

It seems amazing that Christ Jesus, the Son of God, could be hated and feared. Yet there's no doubt that, for all his good works, there were many who felt this way about him. Some people believed that his real goal was to set himself up as a king or military ruler and to free the Jews from the Romans who ruled them. But being a military leader wasn't at all what was behind Jesus' healing, preaching, and teaching.
