King of the Jews
Mark 15:26 And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
He was eternal king after King David and His Father, God. Remember when Israel desired an earthly king? God was not pleased, for he had been their King.
1 Sam 8:6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
1 Sam 8:7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
Jesus was the true king, after king David: king of the Jews, and Father God, King of all who are in His Covenant. The covenant confirmed by the blood of His son, Jesus.
Mark 15:27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.
One of the thieves cried out to Jesus and was saved.
Luke 23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Mark 15:28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
Isa 53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
Isa 53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
Who are the great, the strong who will divide his inheritance? We are, we who trust in him and overcome the devil.
Mark 15:29 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
They still did not understand. His temple is His body, and he would rise again from the grave on the third day.
Mark 15:30 Save thyself, and come down from the cross.
Mark 15:31 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.
He was never lost. Jesus is God, he died to save us from our sins. Those who mock him mock the only way for them to be saved from their sins.
Mark 15:32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
They had seen his miracles and did not believe. Hell awaited them, as with the story of the rich man in hell and Lazarus in the arms of Abraham, in paradise. They will go to hell for unbelief. The rich man pleaded with Abraham:
Luke 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
Luke 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
Luke 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
Jesus would rise from the dead and they still would not believe. They would pass on their unbelief from generation to generation. But, their time will come.
Joel 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
Joel 3:17 So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
Joel 3:20 But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.
Joel 3:21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.
The blood of Jesus cleanses the sinful blood of Adams children.
