The Death Of Jesus

At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.

At the time crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals condemned to be crucified. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion, Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet.

Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long.

The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist, that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breathe.

Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His back then using his legs just to continue to breathe.

Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage.

Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours.

Yes, over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from his wounds.

From common images, we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side...
But do we realize His wounds were actually made in his body? A hammer driving large nails through the wrist, the feet overlapped and an even large nail hammered through the arches, then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. But before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture.

He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds. The human adult body contains about 3.5 liters
(just less than a gallon) of blood. Jesus poured all 3.5 liters of his blood; He had three nails hammered into His members; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His chest.

All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight, only for its higher part, where His hands were nailed).

Jesus had to endure this experience, so that you can have free access to God. So that your sins could be "washed" away. All of them, with no exception!

JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR US!

"Everyone therefore who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before My Father in heaven; but whosoever denies Me before others, I also will deny before My Father in heaven." - Matthew 10:32 & 33

Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." - Philippians 4:13.

Once again, Coca-Cola made happy history with a massive nationwide concert party for the Filipino youth to celebrate its 100th year in the Philippines - the Coca-Cola Concert ng Bayan!

The rocking concert party, which gathered Pinoy teens from all over the country unfolded at the SM Mall of Asia concert grounds last March 23, 2012 and simultaneously shown live in key locations nationwide including SM Baguio, SM Lucena, SM Cebu and SM Davao and streamed via coca-cola.com.ph, allowing everyone across the country and the world to be part of the energizing music, the unlimited festivities and of course, the overflowing happiness.


“The Coca-Cola Concert ng Bayan is our gift to the Filipino teens whose positive spirit, refreshing creativity and passion for happiness have always been indestructible. In tandem with our Coca-Cola Happiness President Caloy, they have made this historic event possible! In this epic year, we are all-out in giving the whole nation more and more reasons to be happy. The last 100 years would not have been a success if not for the Filipinos who made Coca-Cola part of their everyday lives,” said Guillermo Aponte, president and general manager, Coca-Cola Philippines.

The grandest leg of its centennial celebration in the country to date, the groundbreaking music fest did not only witnessed the epic joining of forces of top Pinoy bands including Parokya ni Edgar with Gloc 9, Sandwich with Jay Durias, 6-Cycle Mind with Eunice & Kleggy, Callalily with Ebe Dancel, Rico Blanco with Never the Strangers and Itchyworms, SpongeCola with Chicosci, Ely Buendia with Pupil and Wolfgang plus DJ QYork but also a refreshing collaboration by sought-after, A-list performers Gary Valenciano and Sarah Geronimo as well as fast-rising electro-pop artist Somedaydream, for the infectiously fun and upbeat, chart-topping Coca-Cola 100 Years anniversary anthem, Tuloy.

The musical extravaganza, which lasted for more than ten hours, featured back to back to back showstoppers and culminated to a groundbreaking building projection and fireworks display that further ignited happiness through the whole venue and beyond. The visual spectacle signifies the long-standing relationship between Coca-Cola and the Filipinos throughout the years; 100 years of shared happiness that shall continue to flourish in the next century! On top of all these, raffle draws were held in between segments by the masters of the day: TV hosts Robi Domingo, Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola, Monster RX 93.1 DJ Gino Quillamor and Myx VJs Mike Advincula, Joyce Pring, Chino Lui-Pio and Bianca Roque. Lucky winners got to take home one year supply of Coca-Cola and other delightful premium items.

And again, that’s not all! The high-spirited Coca-Cola Happiness President Caloy also made an appearance before legions of fun-loving teens, sharing a few words of happiness and thanksgiving for the constant and unmatched support Pinoys are giving Coca-Cola.

Indeed, there’s no better way to finally close the school season and welcome a fun-filled summertime than rocking out with an ice-cold Coke in hand! And the best part? Craig David was there to join the party! Yes, the international R&B superstar came all the way from the other side of the globe to be part of Philippine music history and to open and share the sound of happiness across the whole nation with Coca-Cola!

Yet, through all the fun fare, Coca-Cola also got to remind everyone about the value of proper garbage disposal and recycling. As part of its Live Positively commitment, specially designed mesh bins were set-up in strategic locations within the venue to ensure partakers dispose off their used cups, food wrappers and other trash properly.

No question, the epic Coca-Cola Concert ng Bayan signals the start of a summer filled with even bigger surprises as the 100th year celebration of Coca-Cola gets to a whole new high. And we can only be sure our favorite beverage brand shall continue to collaborate with every single Pinoy to give the whole nation nothing less than refreshing happiness!
