 “And they bring Jesus unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, the place of a skull.” There “they crucified Him.”

 Mark 15:22, 24

 The green array from the throne of God the Father (Revelation 5:3) is seen above. The angel of death, as foreshadowed in Exodus 12 with the death of the first born, comes down from the Father and wraps around Christ. Darkness begins to cover the earth at noon.“Now from the sixth hour, there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.“ (Matthew 27: 45) It was in this darkness, that the pure Lamb of God took upon Himself the sin of the world.


“Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

                                                                                                   John 1: 29
