Then Jesus said to him, “What you do, do quickly.”
  • 14. Satan Killed Jesus • Luke 22:53 - When I was with you daily in the temple, you did not try to seize Me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness.” • Satan is that “power of darkness.”
  • 15. All of Us Killed Jesus • Isaiah 53:4-6 – 4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
