- The inscription on the Cross INRI is actually an indictment. It is the indictment in which Jesus accused by the Romans.
These are the initials of Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum – Jesus king of Jews.
- The Romans, who accused Jesus of trying to become the king of the Jews and thereby surpass the Roman emperor, wore a crown of thorns on his head. As if to say - did you want to be a king? Here is a crown - a crown of thorns.
They probably could not have imagined that this icon would be so famous even after more than 2000 years, instead of contempt and condemnation - they bought him fame!
- In the Old Testament, there is a preliminary event, a kind of prophecy, which leads to the crucifixion of Jesus. It is the story of the binding of Isaac.
God commands Abraham to take his beloved son, Isaac, and raise him as a sacrifice, just as God sacrifices his son Jesus.
Isaac is described as carrying on his back the Altar Trees - just as Jesus carried the wooden cross on his back before his crucifixion.
Just before the slaughter is performed, an angel (the Holy Spirit) catches Abraham's hand and directs it to the lamb (as Jesus is often described - the Lamb of God - Agnus Dei ) caught in the tangle of thorns (like the crown of Jesus - thorns) just beside them.
There is also a Biblical argument about how old Isaac was at the time of the event.
Some believe that he was a boy, close to the age of 13 (the opposite of 31 - Jesus' age at the time of the Crucifixion), and it was planned without his knowledge and consent.
Others claim that he was already in his 30s, cooperated with his father and wanted to be bound.
Very similar to the situation of Jesus shortly before his conception of crucifixion: On the one hand he was described as weeping and praying on the eve of conception and on the other side, as a predictor of what was about to come and actually volunteering to be the victim of the atonement for humanity.
- Why was Jesus buried in Jerusalem?
Jesus and his family lived in Nazareth. Why, after he was crucified, did his family not take his body back to Nazareth?
The reason for this lies in the fact that Jesus was crucified on Friday. According to Jewish tradition, the dead should be buried as quickly as possible, and it was impossible to wait long because the Sabbath was about to enter (and you can't bury on Sabbath).
In fact, there was no "choice" but to bury him near the site of the crucifixion and at the city of Jerusalem.
- An interesting fact related to the female gender and the crucifixion of Jesus is the fact that many women (three in particular - his mother Miriam, Miriam, his sister, and Maria Magdalene) are close to the Cross at the crucifixion of Christ, some near and some more distant.
In the Catholic area of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, a mosaic depicting the time of the Crucifixion showing, clearly, three women and only one man.
Also, it was the women who came to visit Jesus' tomb and found it empty. The angel who announces the resurrection of Jesus is revealed to a woman and so on.
This testifies to Jesus' attitude toward women.
Jesus loved women and treated them with great respect.
In places where Islamic religion is firmly practiced, a man has the right to sexually attack his wife or to abandon her, with the full support of the Koran. This is the exact opposite of what the New Testament says about a man's relationship with his wife, which urges men to love their wives as well as themselves.
