67 3 The Death of and Resurrection of Jesus Then they led him out to crucify him. As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene named Simon, and the soldiers forced him to carry Jesus cross. They came to a place called Golgotha, which means, The Place of the Skull. There they offered Jesus wine mixed with a bitter substance; but after tasting it, he would not drink it. They crucified him and then divided his clothes among them by throwing dice. After that they sat there and watched him. Above his head they put the written notice of the accusation against him: This is Jesus, the King of the Jews. Then they crucified two bandits with Jesus, one on his right and the other on his left. People passing by shook their heads and hurled insults at Jesus: You were going to tear down the Temple and build it back up in three days! Save yourself if you are God s Son! Come on down from the cross! In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the Law and the elders made fun of him: He saved others, but he cannot save himself. Isn t he the king of Israel? If he will come down off the cross now, we will believe in him! He trusts in God and claims to be God s Son. Well, then, let us see if God wants to save him now!

85 3 Healing a Roman Officer's Servant When Jesus entered Capernaum, a Roman officer met him and begged for help: Sir, my servant is sick in bed at home, unable to move and suffering terribly. I will go and make him well, Jesus said. Oh no, sir, answered the officer, I do not deserve to have you come into my house. Just give the order, and my servant will get well. I, too, am a man under the authority of superior officers and I have soldiers under me. I order this one, Go! and he goes; and I order that one, Come! and he comes; and I order my slave, Do this! and he does it. When Jesus heard this, he was surprised and said to the people following him, I tell you, I have never found anyone in Israel with faith like this. I assure you that many will come from the east and the west and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the feast of the Kingdom of heaven. But those who should be in the Kingdom will be thrown out into the darkness, where they will cry and grind their teeth.

103 3 Jesus Identity Six days later Jesus took with him Peter, James, and John, and led them up a high mountain, where they were alone. As they looked on, a change came over Jesus, and his clothes became shining white whiter than anyone in the world could wash them. Then the three disciples saw Elijah and Moses talking with Jesus. Peter spoke up and said to Jesus, Teacher, how good it is that we are here! We will make three tents, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah. He and the others were so frightened that he did not know what to say. Then a cloud appeared and covered them with its shadow, and a voice came from the cloud, This is my own dear Son listen to him! They took a quick look round but did not see anyone else; only Jesus was with them. As they came down the mountain, Jesus ordered them, Don't tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has risen from death. They obeyed his order, but among themselves they started discussing the matter, What does this rising from death mean? And they asked Jesus, Why do the teachers of the Law say that Elijah has to come first? His answer was, Elijah is indeed coming first in order to get everything ready. Yet why do the Scriptures say that the Son of Man will suffer much and be rejected? I tell you, however, that Elijah has already come and that people treated him just as they pleased, as the Scriptures say about him.
