Icon of the "Crucifixion of Christ" - Good Friday
The act of crucifixion was carried out by Roman soldiers, usually four, commanded by the captain, because Judea as a Roman province was directly under the rule of Caesar (Caesar), who sent his deputy (prefect) here, whose permanent headquarters were in Caesarea on the sea ( Palestinian). Two other thieves were crucified with Jesus, with which Pilate wanted to mock Christ The evangelist Luke also records the prayerful sigh of Christ on the Cross: "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." Christ was crucified in the third hour, that is. at nine o'clock in the morning (Mk 15:25) according to our calculation of time, and at six o'clock, that is. at noon, a strange eclipse of the sun occurred. The Crucifixion of Christ was common as a method of punishment. What is unusual is the bringing in of witnesses. Despite the savage cruelty of Roman flogging and military mockery, carrying the heavy Cross and only the Crucifixion, Christ's recorded words before his death on the Cross are words of forgiveness and care for others, and prayer to Heavenly Father.
