Crucifixion of Jesus

The crucifixion of Jesus and his ensuing death is an event that occurred during the first century A.D. Jesus, who Christians believe is the Son of God as well as the Messiah, was arrested, tried, and sentenced by Pontius Pilate to be scourged, and finally executed on a cross. Collectively referred to as the Passion, Jesus’ redemptive suffering and death by crucifixion represent critical aspects of Christian theology, including the doctrines of salvation and atonement.

Christians have traditionally understood Jesus’ death on the cross to be a knowing and willing sacrifice (given that he did not mount a defense in his trials) which was undertaken as an “agent of God” to atone for humanity’s sin and make salvation possible. Christians participate in this sacrifice through the bread and wine of the Eucharist, also referred to as The Lord’s Supper or Communion, and many also commemorate the event on Good Friday.
