The Crucifixion

Kireet Joshi (Author)

‘Illumination, harmony and heroism are three major powers that can uplift life to higher and higher levels. All three are manifested in the New Testament’s account of the life, ministry and crucifixion of Jesus. While the Gospels tell little of the childhood of Jesus. We can understand how illuminated he was from the incident when at the age of twelve he was found in a synagogue discussing Jewish Mosaic Law with the elders of the synagogue. Throughout his ministry, Jesus brings forth the message of having love, not only for God, but a deep, uncompromising love of humans for each other. This insistence of Jesus on harmony between humans is clearly expressed when he adds another commandment to the Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule: Do to others what you would have them do to you.” Jesus further admonishes us to “turn the other cheek”. His “Love” illuminates us, asking humanity to go far beyond the egoistic love for one’s family, friends or country. This “Love” that Jesus taught so firmly during his ministry was given the Greek name, “agape” in the early years of Christianity. It is through agape that true harmony could be created through human unity. Humanity has been told this, but has yet to truly believe him who came to give us this message. Jesus’s incredible heroism is shown to us clearly through his resolve to complete his mission. He undergoes crucifixion with great calmness. And even while undergoing the excruciating pain of the crucifixion, he still asks, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” Can we imagine any greater love.
